Microsoft Surface Studio AIO goes toe-to-toe with iMac

Surface Studio AIO, Dial remote queued for Microsoft event

In less than 48 hours, Microsoft will be holding a press event where it is expected to unveil a new generation of Surface devices. While it’s pretty much expected that there will be no new smartphone to grace the stage, that doesn’t necessarily mean things won’t be interesting, especially given recent trademarks just filed by Microsoft. While a Surface Laptop and a Paint 3D might not be so groundbreaking, the Surface Studio and Surface Dial names are definitely something worth taking note of.

Remix IO takes the Android PC idea to a whole new level

Remix IO takes the Android PC idea to a whole new level

Jide has made a name for itself for pushing Android to the desktop, in places and ways that Google may not necessarily approve of. Although it is hardly the only one to do so, no other startup or project can boast of the hardware, software, and business that Jide enjoys. Spurred by that success, it is taking yet another stab at the Android PC market, but this time with a slightly different bent. One that bundles PC, TV, and console in one small package: the Remix IO, or Remix In One.

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Tempting fate, not to mention courts and lawyers, once again, Samsung has officially taken off the covers its self-described stylish desktop PC, the ArtPC Pulse. And it’s pretty much as we heard and seen it to be, including that oddly familiar cylindrical design. Of course, Samsung would argue how the ArtPC Pulse is so radically different in design as well as features. And, to some extent, it might be right, as the canister PC does have one thing Apple’s equivalent doesn’t: a somewhat modular design.

Vensmile K8 puts a PC inside a flexible keyboard

We’ve seen our fair share of keyboards that practically hide computers inside them, whether a full-fledged mini PC or a Raspberry Pi hack. We’ve also seen all sorts of foldable, flexible, even rollable keyboards that maximize mobility. But a flexible keyboard that hides a computer? That’s definitely a first.

ASUS Transform Mini 2-in-1 goes up for pre-order

ASUS Transform Mini 2-in-1 goes up for pre-order

The unexpected success of Microsoft’s Surface tablets inspired OEMs to give the nascent 2-in-1 form factor their own spin. But some manufacturers aren’t too shy about being inspired by the same design as well. The ASUS Transformer Mini, formally the Transformer Book T102HA, unabashedly looks like a Microsoft Surface, close enough to a non-Pro Surface 3. But ASUS’ Windows 10 tablet, which is now available for pre-order, has a few things over Microsoft’s flagship tablets. It is, on paper, lighter, not to mention a whole lot cheaper too.
