The Microsoft Surface Laptop is a beautiful piece of engineering. Many are saying that it’s probably the best built Windows laptop to date. Paired with its sleek lines and minimalist design, the Surface Laptop will certainly turn heads when you whip it out in your local Starbucks (especially that burgundy one).
But the problem with precision machining and having everything sealed away is often that these devices are difficult to repair, even by professionals, let alone in a DIY setting. In fact, according to iFixit, it’s impossible to repair without completely destroying it.
If ASUS‘ launch in Computex 2017 left you drooling for their uber thin yet powerful devices, you’re in for a treat because today, Malaysia becomes the first region in which ASUS launches their brand new laptops.

Lenovo Malaysia has just announced the ThinkPad P51s, a powerful workstation with ultrabook portability. Designed for engineers and architects in mind, it is packed with top of the line specs with sturdy exterior construction for demanding power users.
The tablet is in a weird spot. It was supposed to be this hybrid that lives somewhere between the laptop and the smartphone, complementing both. But as smartphones got bigger and laptops got lighter, smaller and more powerful, it became really hard to justify picking up a tablet. And so, the need for such a device dwindled.
But now I think I’ve found the tablet’s salvation. It’s called the Lenovo Yoga Book and I love it to bits.
This is it. ASUS has done something absolutely awesome with the gaming laptop and it comes in the form of the ROG Zephyrus. Named after the Greek god of the West Wind, its name alone should give you a hint about what makes this ultra-thin, ultra-powerful gaming laptop special.
Yep, it’s in its cooling.

When it comes to technology, I’m usually all for the pursuit of making things as portable as possible so when ASUS announced that they had created the world’s thinnest 2-in-1, my eyebrows were raised.
ASUS is obsessed with making everything thinner at Computex 2017. They have announced several new powerful laptops and one of them is the world’s thinnest 2-in-1 convertible while the other is the thinnest 14″ inch laptop in a compact 13″ laptop chassis.
Microsoft isn’t the only one releasing a slew of new devices. Huawei‘s also got some toys to show us and they’re an update to the company’s previous first Windows 10 device, the MateBook. This time, there are three variants — called the MateBook X, MateBook E and MateBook D — and they’re all a little different from each other.
Microsoft has made probably the most important refresh, at least in their hardware division, of the year and first impressions are a little lukewarm. Their updated device is called the Surface Pro (so they’ve dropped the numbering scheme) and although it seems like a pretty good upgrade overall, there are one or two big design choices that leave us befuddled.
After introducing the Surface Laptop, Microsoft is expected to release a successor to its Surface Pro 4 convertible tablet next week. Serial leakster @evleaks once again has dropped early details of the upcoming device and it will be simply known as the Surface Pro.
