Samsung Notebook 9 Pro and its S Pen partner launch in 2 weeks

Unlike with the Galaxy Books, Samsung isn't waiting too long to bring the laptop hybrid to market, with Notebook 9 Pro pre-orders starting this week and a launch set late June.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus aims for world’s thinnest gaming laptop crown

If there was a pervading theme at this year's Computex, it would be that gaming laptops can be powerful and slim too.

And here's one more to choose from. ASUS' Republic of Gamers just unveiled the ROG Zephyrus, which indeed be just world's thinnest gaming laptop. At least for now.

Samsung is bringing the S Pen to its notebooks, with the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro packing both digital stylus support and a 360-degree hinge.

Either way, it packs some of the advanced pen features we tested out on the Galaxy Book earlier this month.

Acer Predator Triton 700 laptop with NVIDIA Max-Q is 18.9 mm thin

The age of ultrathin gaming notebooks is finally upon us. Or so that's what NVIDIA is promising with its newly announced Max-Q tech that slims gaming laptops down to 18 mm. It's no MacBook Air, but Acer's new Predator Triton 700 comes close at 18.9 mm. This is one of first promises laptops bearing that Max-Q promise that will give gamers less reasons not to take their laptops along with them and play whenever the urge hits them.

NVIDIA Max-Q tech makes gaming laptops ridiculously thin

NVIDIA Max-Q tech makes gaming laptops ridiculously thin

The PC industry seems to have finally realized that while gamers want all the power they can squeeze out of a laptop, they don't necessarily want to carrry their desk on their backs. We are starting to see the emergence of thin and lightweight gaming laptops that, while definitely thinner than old bricks, are still not what you'd exactly consider "thin". NVIDIA is aiming to change all that with its new Max-Q design approach that aims to create gaming laptops that are as thin as MacBook Airs.

This is everything ASUS unleashed at Computex 2017

This is everything ASUS unleashed at Computex 2017

HP, Acer, and Microsoft made their big computer announcements ahead of this year's Computex in order to steer clear of the flood. And flood there was indeed, even if you just look at what ASUS had prepared. From notebooks to convertibles to all-in-one PCs to an odd Wi-Fi router, ASUS' Computex 2017 lineup seems to revolve around the theme of thin bodies, thin bezels, and head-turning designs. But at a time when 2-in-1 detachables are a hot topic again, the company that probably started it all with the ASUS Transformer ironically has none to show.

Acer announces Nitro 5 notebook, Spin 1 convertible, Iconia tablets

Computex won't be taking place until the end of May but Acer wants to get a head start from the flood of announcements that might come.

Surface Pro has some great news (and some bad)

Surface Pro has some great news (and some bad)

At first glance, Microsoft has knocked the new Surface Pro out of the park. Coming hot on the heels of the Surface Laptop, the tablet-that's-a-notebook (and which mustn't be called the Surface Pro 5, oh no) could've been overshadowed by its Alcantara-clad clamshell sibling. Instead, Microsoft has gone down the wishlist of existing owners and ticked all the boxes. Well, all apart from one.

This is the New Microsoft Surface Pro

This is the New Microsoft Surface Pro

As expected, Microsoft didn't announce a new Surface Pro 2-in-1 at its Shanghai event. It, instead, announce "The New Surface Pro". No number this time, perhaps to hide the fact that this Surface Pro might not be worthy of a bump in digit. That said, with the refinements that Microsoft bestowed on this New Unnumbered Surface Pro, it still deserves to be given a deeper look, especially for those upgrading from a much older Surface Pro model.

Samsung Chromebook Pro launch date confirmed, Nougat expected

Mark your calendars if you're anything of a Chromebook fan. Even better if you're a fan of both Chrome OS and Android. Samsung has formally confirmed what has been leaked by Amazon. The Chromebook Pro, perhaps the Chromebook flagship of 2017, is finally landing in stores on Sunday. And if the latest round of rumors do come to pass, it's going to be the Chromebook to beat this year. Or a huge letdown.

The HP Spectre x2 wants to solve your Surface Pro frustrations

Microsoft has left the Surface Pro to languish, unloved, and HP isn't going to let an opportunity like that pass it by. Welcome, then, the HP Spectre X2, the latest in the laptop company's range of touchscreen 2-in-1s. With the body of a tablet - and a 12.3-inch, 3,000 x 2,000 resolution one at that - and the flexibility of a magnetically-attached keyboard, HP is hoping you'll forget all about your Surface Pro dreams.
