Chuwi Minibook to jump on 8-inch convertible laptop train

Chuwi Minibook to jump on 8-inch convertible laptop train

Chinese manufacturer Chuwi has dabbled in almost all forms of computers, from laptops to tablets to mini PCs. The one thing it doesn't have, however, is a Yoga-like convertible laptop. That might be soon changing but it won't simply be aping Lenovo. Instead, it will be shrinking that form factor down to a tiny 8-inch laptop that bends over backward to become a tiny tablet.

Acer Predator Helios 700 has a weird slide-out keyboard (for good reason)

Today, Acer took to the stage in New York City to announce a slew of new products, and one of the most interesting machines it revealed is the Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop. On the surface, the Helios 700 might look like your garden variety gaming laptop, with its beefy build and its RGB keyboard. However, that seemingly straightforward design is hiding an interesting quirk: A slide-out "HyperDrift" keyboard.

16-inch MacBook Pro with all new design might not come this year

16-inch MacBook Pro with all new design might not come this year

The biggest MacBook Pro prediction this year has just been debunked by the very person who made the prediction. While details are still very thin at the moment, that's definitely what it feels like upon learning that Ming-chi Kuo himself has revised his forecast, saying that the 16-inch MacBook Pro, the one with an all-new design, won't be landing in stores this year. The good news is that it might still be coming after two years.

Surface Book 2 finally has an 8th gen Intel Core i5 option

April Fools joke this isn't, especially after Microsoft reportedly banned such shenanigans from making it outside of the company. Rumors about a more powerful entry-level Surface Book 2 has been going around for almost a month now so it's no surprise that it's real and finally here. Even better, if you're not a fan of a fan-less quad-core device, you can now grab the old configuration at a lower price as well.

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) Review

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) Review

Huawei is probably best known for making smartphones primarily as well as networking equipment, two product lines that are at the center of political and legal controversy. A few years ago, however, Huawei started getting its hands into another related business, that of selling laptops. With a product name like the MateBook X Pro and a distinctly familiar design, there is little doubt whose market share Huawei is after.

This year, Huawei has come out with a 2019 model that retains not just the name but a few details as well. We dig in to find out if what has changed is enough to justify the new and higher price tag.

Apple apologizes for and downplays MacBook keyboard problems

Apple apologizes for and downplays MacBook keyboard problems

This is probably the closest disgruntled MacBook owners will get to a public acknowledgment from Apple. It's close to four years now since the company introduced a brand new keyboard technology that, for just as long, has been causing headaches and heartaches. The third generation MacBook "butterfly" keyboards have supposedly addressed those but, as per Apple's own admission, is still affecting a number of users. It's just that, according to Apple, it's a small number of users.

Samsung Notebook 9 Pro released with lesser specs than “Pen”

The Samsung Notebook 9 Pro was announced to have a release date and a price, at last, after its initial showing at CES 2019. This device was revealed alongside a relatively close piece of hardware called Samsung Notebook 9 Pen. What's strange about these devices is the fact that all models have the ability to work with a stylus - it's just that the Pen model has an official S Pen while the Pro uses an "Active Pen".

HP recalled more batteries in January, but gov shutdown delayed news

Back in January 2018, HP recalled thousands of laptop batteries due to the risk of potentially overheating. The recall was expanded a year later with HP voluntarily recalling a number of additional batteries back in January 2019. The news was slow to reach the public, however, due to the government shutdown, which delayed the Consumer Product Safety Commission's announcement until March.
