I’m someone who’s obsessed with light laptops. This obsession stems partly from the fact that I carry a lot of heavy equipment with me to events but mostly it’s because I’m weak af. That’s why LG’s Gram was always something I was super attracted to but could never get my hands on because Malaysia.
Today though, I may have found the best alternative. It’s Acer’s Swift 5 and this sleek ultrabook weighs just 970g.
I think we all saw this day coming. With how powerful mobile processors are getting, it was only a matter of time before mobile silicon makers made the big push to get their chips in full-fledged Windows laptops and tablets. For Qualcomm, that day has arrived, but for everyone else, the question is: What’s new?
You can’t have your cake and eat it too. For the most part, life is a barter trade where luxury demands hard work, perfection necessitates dedication, and power requires sacrifice. It’s a humbling principle that basically reminds you that you can’t have it both ways.
This is primarily the reason why purebred high-end gaming laptops never really interested me. Sure, they had all the power in the world but because of these high-powered components, the laptops needed to be enormous so those components could breathe.
There was no such thing as a no-compromise gaming laptop that was also super portable. Well, at least I didn’t think there was until I saw the Acer Predator Triton 700.

Personally, when I think of desirable ultrabooks/thin, light and powerful laptops running Windows 10, I always think of devices like a spec-ed out Dell XPS 13, a ThinkPad X1 Carbon, or the high-end Lenovo Yoga convertibles.
As a low-key hipster (I’d say self-proclaimed but that’s so mainstream), I probably wouldn’t have considered the ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe. Why? I’m not too sure, but these devices never seemed particularly desirable to me.

While Dell‘s Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming laptop has always had pretty good value for money, it has always had one monumental flaw: Its awful TN panel. Today, Dell Malaysia is fixing that with the latest update to their popular gaming laptop.

Y’know what tech enthusiasts say when a gadget starts dying? Every dying component is a reason to upgrade to a newer, less dead, and much faster version of that component. Smartphone feeling a little sluggish? Buy a new one! Gaming laptop fan getting too loud? Buy a new one! Did one of the rubber feet on your RGB keyboard fall off? Buy a new one!
So guess what we did when the hard disk on our Dell Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1 started failing? Yep, we bought a new one. But, we also went one step further and wrote a comprehensive guide on how you can swap out your painfully slow mechanical hard disk drive for a newer, less dead and much faster solid state drive!

Acer’s bringing more power to their Spin and Swift series of laptops with the launch of the new Spin 5 and Swift 3. These are the company’s ultra-portable devices and now the company has packed in discrete GPUs for that extra kick.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro has pretty much been the gold standard for detachable 2-in-1 laptops. Its combination of performance, portability and premium good looks are hard to beat. But what if you wanted more. What if the top spec Surface Pro with an Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage is too pedestrian for you?
Fear not, young grasshopper, HP’s got you covered with the brand new ZBook x2. It’s bananas.
Not impressed with the new Microsoft Surface Pro? Neither was I. Thankfully, Microsoft just launched a brand new update to their interesting take on the 2-in-1 detachable laptop, the Surface Book. This is the Surface Book 2.
