20150331-Surface-3

The Surface Pro 3 is one of my favourite laptops, so much so that I went out and bought one, but the RM5,000 price tag for the 256GB version (plus Type Cover and one year of Office 365 subscription) that I got took a hefty toll on my wallet. If you’re like me and the flexibility of a Microsoft Surface is something that you look for in a computer but don’t really want to fork out a big wad of cash for a computer, then you might want to take a look at this.

Microsoft has just announced the Surface 3, a cheaper alternative to the Surface Pro 3. Designed around a specific price point and targeted at students, schools and anyone looking for an affordable, ultra-portable computer, you can’t expect industrial strength performance from the Surface 3 but you can expect it to get your basic computing needs sorted.

Xiaomi introduces a special Mi Note just for the ladies

Posted:  March 31, 2015   By:    No comments   

20150331-MiNote-Pink

In conjunction with its 5th anniversary, Xiaomi brings a new variant for the Mi Note. But before you get all excited, the new Mi Note is not getting a new processor or more memory, instead it is specially designed for the ladies. It will be shod in a wonderfully feminine shade of pink.

Despite being virtually unchanged, since it was launched in January this year, the Mi Note is no slouch. The 5.7-inch full HD (1920×1080) developed by Sharp/JDI boasts a contrast ratio of 1400:1, it’s protected with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3 and features a 3.0 thin bezel. The device is a workhorse with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor mated 3GB of RAM that’s sure to keep up with the most demanding of tasks and multitasking processes. You get an option of 16GB or 64GB of storage and a dual 4G SIM card slot — one slot housing a micro SIM while the other, a nano SIM. In terms of battery, the Mi Note packs a 3,000mAh unit developed by Sony and LG.

As Xiaomi celebrates its 5th anniversary, they have just announced a couple of new products ranging from smart phones, TVs and smart appliances. As rumoured earlier, Xiaomi is going for an even affordable smart phone by introducing the Redmi 2A. Essentially this is the same device as the current Redmi 2 but it carries an even lower price tag of 599 CNY (about RM357).

If ordered on 8th April (one day only), the Redmi 2A is offered at an even lower 499 CNY price tag which is about RM297. That’s quite a lot of savings considering the standard Redmi 2 is priced at 699 CNY which is currently sold at RM449 in Malaysia.

150330-samsung-galaxy-s6-malaysia-price

Samsung is definitely moving its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge flagships up a notch on the premium scale. Unfortunately that also means you would need to fork out more for their latest models which will be launched this week in Malaysia.

According to a source that tipped Lowyat.net, the Galaxy S6 will be priced at RM2,599 in Malaysia, while its double-curve display Galaxy S6 edge would carry an even higher price tag of RM3,099. This more or less matches its pricing in other parts of the world where the Galaxy S6 edge is priced higher than the already premium iPhone 6 Plus.
