Just Taking a Peek at Some Newer Notebooks/Laptops, HP Spectre X360 With the Kaby Lake CPU

Originally posted 2017-02-01 00:11:06.

I prefer all my devices have mobility, even including my Zotac PC, which because of its built in wireless, can literally be plugged in anywhere in the house and still act as a web server.

So today I was pondering, perhaps a new notebook? Nothing wrong with the Asus X553SA, but logic says, sell it and replace it while it is still relevant.  So below is a review I found on the Inter-web, via YouTube and it is quite positive.

Feedback would be appreciated as usual, although I am betting that none of the 8 new users on the site will do a thing but continue their feeble attempts to hack the site….

I found the video below on YouTube and if you are into tablets and laptops, you really should subscribe to this channel. The reviews are honest, although sometimes nit-picky, but most importantly they are accurate.

That is all for this evening,

Tim

This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing: HP Spectre x360 15 (Gem-Cut): Coffee Lake + NVIDIA GTX 1050ti with Max Q

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDtech and is another great unboxing and short review of a super device that is worth a serious look!

The HP Spectre X360 Gem Cut version is a killer 2 in 1 or convertible notebook (laptop), and it is looking like a product that really has some fantastic features.

The specs are great, the usefulness of the product is to put it mildly, outstanding and the price, although a bit high, is still completely reasonable.

I won’t bore you with the specs because Andrew is going to give you all those details in the video.

So make sure to visit his channel and subscribe if you like this type of content!

Let us now proceed at once to the video before my lousy typing screws up an otherwise nicely written article…

Tonight’s Double Feature Worth Sharing: Adapters AND Cases For the Nuu G3!

Hi there folks obviously I am doing a bit of catch-up work here. The first video in our list is from yesterday and I was simply too tired to post it! It concerns my acquisition of a nifty splitter that allow you to  use a headphone and a microphone with most any smartphone, in this case the Nuu Mobile G3.

Obviously there were some issues, but they are all covered in the video. You can get this nifty microphone/headphone splitter right here!

The second video released about 4 hours ago concerns the Nuu Mobile G3 and a nice case to fit it! You can find this perfect fitting Tudia Linn case over at Amazon. I bought the haze gray color, but it is also available in Blue and Black.

Watch them both and then like them on YouTube and leave feedback and share them! You might even want to subscribe!

Okay too much typing here, let us proceed at once to the videos!

What I Would Like To See On The New Chuwi LapBook Air

Originally posted 2017-08-30 18:52:10.

Just yesterday I posted up about the contest Chuwi is having to guess the price of the upcoming LapBook Air notebook.

That picture of the device on their site and the announcement of the contest is the only official word I have seen concerning this device at all. Sure I have read the rumors and the supposed specs, but there is actually nowhere I have found a confirmed list of specs and images.

Here is what we do know:

  • It is a 14.1 inch display
  • It appears to be all metal and very thin.

That’s it, everything else is speculation. But below is what I believe needs to be on this device to make it worthwhile, after all, the LapBook 14.1 is already a darned decent device although not a metal build, so here is what needs to be on this thing:

  • Minimum Intel N3450 or N4200 and a proper cooling arrangement of heat sink and fan if needed. (I am not asking for a gaming device here)
  • A display with super high resolution at least equal to the LapBook 12.3
  • 8 GB RAM. Please don’t half-ass this by only giving us 6 GB
  • a 128 GB SSD with a handy access cover on the bottom so we can easily upgrade this product.
  • a monster battery that will last at least 8 hrs, a minimum of 10,000 mAh…more is better,(please)
  • nice small or no bezels on the display.
  • 2 full size USB 3.0 ports, at least 1 USB-C port and perhaps a micro USB port also
  • micro HDMI port
  • microSD card slot
  • WiFi dual band a/b/g/n/ac using the latest Intel Chipset
  • some decent speakers, although I understand this is a notebook not a stereo system

Those are some of the things that must be on this device, sure there are some other features that would be cool such as a decent webcam, a fingerprint reader and perhaps a back-lit keyboard (that battery better be damned big!).

That is all I have at this time,

Tim
