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.

As a tech enthusiast, you have got to love Acer sometimes. Not because they always make the best products, but because they have the balls to take the leap and do what they want to do regardless of the circumstances. Last year, they gave us the absolutely bonkers Predator 21X.
This year they decided to cram most of that craziness into a chassis that’s thinner than 2cm. It’s called the Predator Triton 700 and starting today, you can pick one up for less than you’d expect.

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!

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.
Dell’s launched their brand new Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 and Inspiron 15 7000 laptops in Malaysia. This time they pack Intel’s latest chips into relatively sleek metal bodies and have prices starting from just under RM4,450.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup have pretty much set the standard for the 2-in-1 detachable category. I don’t think there’s a device in the market right now that can really match the package Microsoft offers with their Surface Pro.
But, like Surface Pros tend to be, they’re very expensive and that usually begs the question: Is it worth the premium over the other, more affordable, 2-in-1 detachables in the market? Well, today I got to spend some time with Microsoft’s latest Surface Pro and here’s what I think.
Huzzah! ASUS‘ Greek god has arrived on our shores. Meet the ROG Zephyrus, one of the more interesting Max-Q laptops to have launched so far. Now that it’s in Malaysia, you’re probably wondering: How much will it cost?
The short answer? A lot.
If you’ve been looking for a gaming laptop, you’re in luck because it’s gaming laptop season. Hot on the heels of HP’s Omen and a little after Lenovo’s Legion, Acer‘s throwing its hat in the ring with two brand new gaming laptops that sit firmly in the budget and midrange gaming category.
