The Lenovo Miix 510: A Flexible 2-in-1 PC

Posted on 01 March 2017

The Lenovo Miix 510 is a 2-in-1 Windows tablet that offers users with the portability of a large-screen mobile and a keyboard cover for long typing sessions. It’s one of those few tablets that are dubbed as a true laptop replacement, providing the freedom to do anything that you can expect from a laptop.

You can remove the keyboard when you don’t require it and has a fantastic display. Reflecting back on the hardware quality of Lenovo’s products, this one shows incredible engineering as it is thing and light. Even though it is made from several different parts, it feels like it’s machined out of a single piece of aluminum.

The Miix 510 flaunts a premium look and feel, with its magnesium-aluminum framework and its modish mechanical watchband hinges. The underside of the keyboard folio is from a synthetic-leather-like-material. You get full-size directional keys instead of a simple right Shift key with Lenovo devices. This can lead to clicking the up arrow every when you want to click that Shift key for using a hashtag an asterisk.

As compared to Miix 700, the Miix 510 takes things up to an advanced level. It features an Intel Core i processor (6th Gen Skylake). This implies that this model needs fan cooling. This also makes the new model is not completely noise-free, however, it cannot be called loud either.

The 3.3 x 1.8-inch button-less touchpad accurately track fingers and give a solid feel to clicking. Both two-finger and three-finger horizontal scrolling works flawlessly and without delay.

Good
The attractive hinged kickstand offer massive positioning flexibility. It also has peripherals with adapters and a USB-C port for video output. Unlike other similar models, Lenovo provides an impressive backlit keyboard cover. Palm rejection and Active Pen work well too.

Bad
There is no memory card slot if users are looking for more expansion. The Active Pen comes with an addition $40 and the tiny right-hand shift key can be irritating to most users.

Samsung Chromebook Pro: The Next Generation Chromebook

Posted on 27 February 2017

The Samsung Chromebook Pro comes with a rooted stylus and features that add a high level of functionality to Google’s operating system. With a 12.3-inch display coupled with a sleek, premium body, the Samsung Chromebook Pro is one of the best Chromebooks out there on the market. Since it is the first of its generation, it does come with some inconveniences. Some Android apps from the Google Play store do not work all that well. However, the browser-centric operating system certainly stands out among the crowd.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro brings a design that is minimalist and thin. The aluminum body is not as broad as you would expect on a notebook, and the shape is a little odd too. It comes with a 1600 x 2400, 12.3-inch screen, which is quite surprising. This is because the standard display that the majority of laptops use rounds up to an average of 16.9 inches width-to-height display whereas the Samsung Chromebook Pro utilizes a 3.2 ratio, which is great for a tablet but a bit strange for a notebook.

It weighs around 2.4 lbs and its dimensions are 0.6 x 11.1 x 8.7 inches. It is also among the lightest and thinnest Chromebooks seen so far. Since Chromebooks are dependent mostly on the cloud, it comes as no surprise that the Samsung Chromebook Pro does not feature a large number of ports. It comes with a Type-C USB port, a headphone jack and microSD card reader on the left, and one USB-C port along with a slot to support the stylus on the right side. Since the Type-C USB ports are utilized for charging, you can use only a single port when the device is plugged in.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro comes with 32 GB storage and 4GB RAM, and is great for multitasking without lag. There is no doubt that this model represents a significant upgrade on the past generations of Chromebooks over the years.
