​Samsung Notebook 9 Pen Review

Posted on 21 February 2018

It wouldn’t be wrong to claim that the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen is the lightest machine on the market – it only weighs 2.2-lbs! Plus, it comes with the popular S Pen. The notebook functions well but its quality and design may confuse tech enthusiasts.

The hardware design could be a result of Samsung’s splendid metallurgical techniques and technology. You will pick up the notebook and it will feel as if you’re holding something made from plastic, but it is not. The company has used something known as magnesium-aluminum alloy – known as Metal 12 to make the device lighter and durable.

It is not a fancy looking notebook, and that means Samsung has put all emphasis on the performance of the device rather than its aesthetic appeal. However, the company could be more mindful regarding the ports on the device. The device just has single, full-size 3.0 USB port, a USB-C port, an HDMI out, and a small slot for your microSD card. Moreover, the 13-inch, 1080p panel screen comes with vibrant colors that are quite impressive as it will allow you to work outdoors.

Samsung notebook also features 8th generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor, a 256GB SSD, and 8GB RAM. The software is solid and it can handle working on multiple Chrome tabs, daily – prolonged Spotify sessions, and non-stop work on Photoshop without hindrance.

The machine can provide a pleasant gaming experience but don’t forget that it is not designed for gamers. Moreover, S Pen is a simple – silver pen with company’s logo but it works fine. You can use it on the screen to capture areas and can mold images into GIFs without any significant effort. You will get a smooth keyboard along with useful features for $1,399. Professionals or students can invest in the Samsung notebook as it is easy to carry and easily handles all your workload.

​Origin PC Evo15-S: Ultra Thin Gaming Laptop

Posted on 09 February 2018

Origin is joining the Max-Q race with the Evo15-S, a slim, lean notebook that’s great for gamers. The machine has an understated, low-key design, which adds to its visual appeal. The great thing about this notebook is its weight, as it is smaller and lighter as compared to a conventional 15-inch gaming laptop. The overall weight of the Evo15-S is less than 5 lbs, which is significantly lighter than the Alienware 15.

The notebook also features a number of ports that you can use for your USB connections, which include a USB 3.1 port, an HDMI port for VR, and a couple of mini DisplayPort connectors. The display of the notebook is decent, with 94% sRGB gamut coverage, which makes it ideal for gaming. However, you might face some issues with the display when viewing anything with excessive color use.

The Best Part

The best feature of this notebook is that it provides you the power you get with a gaming desktop but in a slim and light design. You don’t have to compromise on the connections you want to set up, and the laptop itself weighs less than 5 lbs.

The Drawbacks

You might find the keyboard of the Evo15-S slightly cramped, which can be difficult for your muscle memory. The laptop also tends to heat up if you use it for an extended period.

At over $1,600, you might find the Evo15-S a bit pricey, but the features and quality it offers make it worth purchasing. The only catch is that the keyboard might not be suitable for your gaming needs, and you probably have to play plugged. That said, the portability of the laptop make it a great device for people who want to play games on the go, but without having to lug around a hefty machine.

​Acer Spin 5 Review: Versatile Convertability

Posted on 07 February 2018

Are you looking for an affordable, convertible notebook, the Acer Spin 5 can prove a worthwhile purchase. The 2-in-1 device offers you a wide range of features that you can expect from a high-end product. The Spin 5 comes with an HD touchscreen, a number of ports, a modern build, long-lasting battery, and a stylus pen. The best part is the price point this notebook is available for, i.e. starting at $700.

You can select between 13-inch and 15-inch versions. Regardless of the size you select, the body of the laptop comprises of all metal. Other features include a crisper, shaper screen, better support for the stylus, and the keyboard is an improvement on the previous model. The only catch is that the features don’t offer anything extraordinary. The standard set of features means you are unlikely to derive any inspiration from the notebook. Also, the design isn’t aesthetically appealing either.

The Spin 5 is a slightly heavy system, weighing over 3 pounds. This makes this notebook slightly heavier than other 13-inch models from HP and Samsung, which weigh less than 2.5 lbs today. There is no slot for storing the stylus on the laptop, though the stylus works perfectly if you want to draw or take notes.

The 13-inch version of the notebook is available for $700, which is slightly on the high side. But, you should consider the fact that you are getting a 2-in-1 device that offers you a wide range of applications. And although Acer doesn’t mention that this notebook is ideal for video viewing, you can use it as an alternative to watching TV.

The screen of the Spin 5 is decent, offering great color rendering and you enjoy multiple viewing angles. Moreover, the sound the speakers of the device offer is topnotch, which means you don’t have to connect external speakers, although the audio quality is not up to the mark.

​Acer Predator Triton 700 Review

Posted on 07 November 2017

People who still prefer to using laptops always look for an innovative alternative. The tech experts keep an eye out for not only new gadgets, but they are quite excited for something cutting-edge and deeply innovative. Talking about innovation, who would say no to a laptop that offers quality and satisfaction at the same time? Therefore, if you are looking for a laptop that enables you to get the job done and provides you with exciting gaming experience, the Acer Predator Triton 700 is here!

The exterior of Acer Predator Triton 700 is pretty or borderline dull. Only the logo signifies that it is a powerful gaming computer. However, the interior of the laptop has stolen the show. It is extremely attractive. The very thing first you would notice is the touchpad because you would not find it – it has been designed beneath the keyboard. But it sits nicely below the screen – which is a unique idea for laptops.

Gorilla glass touchpad

The touchpad is made with gorilla glass and is placed right above the graphics card. You can clearly see the GTX1080 beneath it. The Gorilla glass enables users to see internal features. The touchpad is extremely smooth to use – designed perfectly for web surfing.

Satisfying keyboard

The keyboard is impressive. Also, it has dynamic RGB themes, bright and colorful. It is an appealing keyboard innovation. The keys are smooth to click and they border on ASMR. For gamers, playing PUBG would be a joyous experience. Plus, playing any game with a WASD control scheme on Triton 700 would be exciting.

Triton 700 touchpad

One thing is worth mentioning that its touchpad – although it is extremely attractive it gets uncomfortably hot and it happens because it is made of glass. There are chances that when you run apps with Nvidia1080 GPU, the Predator touchpad may get too hot to handle. It is suggested to use a mouse or gamepad to deal with this. However, using both might not help if you browse through several Windows menu or navigate the steam game launching application.

​Razer Blade Stealth 13.3”: Ultrabook Laptop Review

Posted on 23 October 2017

When we think about Razer laptops, there is only thing that comes to mind – an ultimate gaming experience! However, most Razer laptops aren’t designed strictly for gaming purposes – and the Razer Blade Stealth 13.3” is a pretty good example of one of them. The Blade Stealth is designed to compete with a premium built, non-gaming version of MacBook Air and Microsoft Surface.

Product Specifications

Following are the key specifications of the Razer Blade Stealth 13.3”.

  • Display Size: 13-Inch, 3200×1880 touch display
  • CPU: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-7500U
  • RAM: 16Gb DDR3 SDRAM
  • Graphic: 128 MB Intel HD 620 Graphics
  • Storage: 512GB SSD
  • Networking: 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1
  • OS: Windows 10 Home (64-Bit)


The Razer Blade Stealth 13.3” 2017 now comes in matte grey with a 13.3” screen instead of 12.5”. In order to give it battery more life, they have dropped the resolution slightly so that it is not 4k anymore. However, the output feels the same with excellent display result.

What makes Razer laptops standout is their keyboards, they have backlighting options that offer a magnitude of different colors. The Blade Stealth 13.3” however, runs short on this technology and comes with only white backlight option – which is primarily to give it a more professional look and feel.

It is a slim laptop, yet it packs almost all the needed ports, a USB-C thunderbolt 3 port, full sized two USB ports and an HDMI port. Since it has Intel HD 620 graphics, HD gaming and heavy photoshopping is not possible. But with an Intel Core i7(7th Generation) and 16GB RAM it will perform well. With an improvied, 8-hour battery life, you can use it for longer periods of time but at the expense of a 4k resolution.


A premium built Core i7 laptop with a large screen will appeal to many people who want to stick to buying a Razer laptop for professional work and whatnot.
