At Computex 2019, MediaTek has announced that its upcoming 5G SoC (system-on-chip, or processor) integrates a 5G modem to deliver 5G in a more cost-efficient way than what’s on the market today, namely Qualcomm’s X55 modem, usually coupled with its Snapdragon 855 processor.
When Apple introduced the Touch Bar to its MacBook Pro lineup, it was supposed to be a game changer in terms of how we used our laptops. Unfortunately, many still seem to largely prefer having a row of function keys instead of a OLED strip, although this isn’t to say that it is completely useless.
Laptops are a dime a dozen and it’s hard for companies to truly stand out. However, at Computex 2019, we saw how ASUS attempted to break the mold with its ZenBook Pro Duo that comes with a 4K secondary screen built right above its keyboard. If you thought that was wild, Intel might have ASUS beat.
Dell has unveiled a handful of new products at Computex and the new XPS 13 2-in-1 is one of them. The company had previously launched a refreshed version of the XPS 13 at CES earlier this year. The new 2-in-1 model gets a complete overhaul which includes design improvements as well as more powerful internals.
Most of the time, our laptops are made from polycarbonate bodies or aluminum. There are several reasons for this, such as affordability, weight, and also better heat conductivity. However, for those who wouldn’t mind seeing more material options when it comes to our laptops, HP is more than happy to oblige.
A lot of the gaming laptops that we’re seeing in the market today can come across a bit garish, what with their sharp angular designs and glowing RGBs. However, we get it, but in case you wanted a gaming laptop that didn’t look too obvious, Alienware might have something for you with its new m15 and m17 gaming laptops.
The overall design of laptops hasn’t really changed that much over the decades since they’ve been around. For the most part, they’re clamshell devices that features a screen on one end, and a keyboard on the other. However, it seems that ASUS is hoping to turn the industry on its head with the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo.
