Chuwi CoreBook brings the fight to the iPad Pro’s doorstep

Chuwi CoreBook brings the fight to the iPad Pro’s doorstep

Chuwi has been boldly pitting its products against some of the biggest tech companies in both name and design. The SurBook faced off with the Microsoft Surface Pro and the LapBook Air against the Apple MacBook Air. The CoreBook, the company’s latest baby, probably won’t ring any bell. But the moment you look at it, you’ll most likely get the idea. The Chuwi CoreBook is practically what you’ll get if you took an iPad Pro and put Windows 10 on it. And that might be a good thing.

Surface Book 2 Review (15-inch): The MacBook Pro eater

Surface Book 2 Review (15-inch): The MacBook Pro eater

If you were crafting a recipe for the perfect performance notebook, the Surface Book 2 15-inch wouldn't be a bad place to start. Microsoft's move to "lead by example" in Windows 10 laptops still wows, with its detachable screen and crisp, premium hardware, even two years after its original debut. Still, for all its battery life and design cred, the Surface Book wasn't perfect. Embracing USB-C, a larger 15-inch screen, and some of the beefiest specifications this side of a gaming PC, the Surface Book 2 sets out to give Apple some nightmares.

Windows 10 on Snapdagon 835 Geekbench scores are uninspiring

Windows 10  on Snapdagon 835 Geekbench scores are uninspiring

Microsoft has made it no secret that it will put Windows 10 on ARM devices, specifically on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset. It has, however, denied that will take the form of a smartphone as some have hoped for. Which is probably all for the best, if this sighting on Geekbench is any indicator. While it is, perhaps, impressive that we are able to see figures for Windows 10 running on a Snapdragon 835 board at all, the scores it yielded are way below what you’d expect from the processor, at least compared to Android running on the same chip.

Windows 10 to get wireless file sharing, Edge mute tab

Windows 10 to get wireless file sharing, Edge mute tab

One of the good things about Microsoft’s new “Windows as a Service” thrust is that you don’t have to wait for ages before you can get your hands on significant new features. Sure, you might have to wait a year or even just half for the next Windows 10 update, but that’s still lots faster than previous Windows versions. The Fall Creators Update was just released a month ago and fans will probably already be looking forward to the next one, which brings offline file sharing and more functionality to the Edge web browser.

Microsoft says last free Windows 10 upgrades will end soon

Microsoft says last free Windows 10 upgrades will end soon

If you're still a Window 7 or 8 user that's been putting off the eventual upgrade to Windows 10, your chance to do so for free will soon be over. Microsoft has stated that there is now an end date for its last remaining offer to upgrade to its newest operating system at no cost. After offering Windows 10 for free to Windows 7/8 users for over a year, followed by a loophole that extended the timeframe from last July until now, a cut-off date has been set: December 31st, 2017.

HoloLens sets its sights on Europe with huge expansion

HoloLens sets its sights on Europe with huge expansion

It's been a long time coming, but Microsoft is finally ready to launch HoloLens across Europe. Ever since the headset was first released back in 2016, it's been available in only a few European regions, namely the UK, Ireland, Germany, and France. Those regions were four of only 10 to get the device, meaning that HoloLens was hard to find for many Europeans.

Microsoft Andromeda device might have a holographic display

Microsoft Andromeda device might have a holographic display

Windows mobile users are really starving for good news, and who can blame them. Microsoft has practically called it quits on Windows Mobile. The Surface Phone is nowhere to be seen. And the company’s strategy seems to be focusing on other mobile platforms instead. So when news of a certain “Andromeda” foldable tablet, ala the stillborn Courier, it has become the new torchbearer of hope, not to mention some rather out of this world features. Like a holographic display on one of Andromeda’s two screens.

Free Windows 10 upgrades end this year

Free Windows 10 upgrades end this year

At one point in time, Microsoft was criticized for being too aggressive and too desperate to get users on Windows 10 immediately. It seems that the desperation has died down and Microsoft is confident enough in the numbers to close the doors on those who still refuse to go from 7 or 8 to 10. Microsoft has just made it clear that its abused extension of free upgrades to Windows 10 is going to end December 31 this year, giving users about 2 months to make up their minds.

Andromeda: The secret Microsoft folding tablet leaks

Andromeda: The secret Microsoft folding tablet leaks

The Microsoft Courier folding notebook-tablet may finally be getting its launch as a new Andromeda tablet, almost a decade after the ill-fated project first leaked. Way back in 2009, word broke of a skunkworks project within Microsoft developing a twin-touchscreen device that would fold, like a traditional paper journal. Dubbed Courier, it went on to become one of the most popular Microsoft concepts among would-be users.
