This could be it, ladies and gentlemen. My lifelong quest in search for the perfect work laptop to carry around with me to events may be at an end. What’s interesting is that this potentially ideal laptop comes from a pretty unlikely place.
Remember VAIO? It turns out they still make some really nice laptops that will be making their way into Malaysia really soon. At Computex 2018, I got the chance to check them out and let’s just say I’m stoked.

ASUS’ brand new ZenBook Pro comes with one of the most interesting features I’ve seen on a traditional laptop in a long time. Sure, the device comes with excellent specs, a great build and a very nice screen, but the first thing that jumps out to anyone who looks at it is the 5.5-inch screen living where you would usually find a trackpad.
What is it? Is it any good? Is it better than TouchBar? Well, this is everything we currently know about ScreenPad.
ScreenPad. It’s not the most creative name ever, but it is something I’m also kind of surprised nobody else thought of doing to a laptop. I know Razer had that whole “stick your phone in a laptop” thing but that’s not this. This is something else, but at the same time it also feels like it should have been a very obvious thing to do.
Why, then, did nobody do it? Why did nobody slap a screen into the space where your laptop’s trackpad usually sits? Is it because it’s a bad idea? Well, that’s what I tried to find out with ASUS’ brand new ZenBook Pro.

4 years ago Sony announced that they were parting ways with VAIO Computer Business and VAIO Corporation was formed to take over the PC business.
From that day onwards, we didn’t see much VAIO laptops around as they were only available in selected markets including Japan. However, this is about to change as VAIO is set to make a comeback to Malaysia very soon.
Have you been pining for a Windows laptop with TouchBar? ASUS thinks you are and their latest laptop — that’s designed for creators — is about as close as you can get to a Windows laptop with a TouchBar. It’s the new ZenBook Pro and this year it comes with something called ScreenPad.
If you’ve always wanted to get a Microsoft Surface Pro or a Surface Laptop but you’re not willing to pay its exorbitant price tag, now is probably a good time to reconsider. Shopee is now having some deals on these Windows 10 machines and you can get an i5 model from as low as RM2,944.
In conjunction with the premiere of one of the biggest movies of 2018, Acer Malaysia’s launching a set of limited edition Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War laptops.

While the ASUS ROG Zephyrus was definitely a showstopper last year, it wasn’t exactly the best “laptop” primarily because the track pad was in such a weird position. Then again, this isn’t something that was uniquely ASUS’ problem.
Sure, you could get used to it, or use a mouse. But what if you didn’t want that. Well, for those, you’ve got the ROG Zephyrus M (GM501). It’s a laptop that keeps a lot of what’s good with the Zephyrus but in a form that makes sense.
The Acer Swift 5 is an ultra-light 14″ laptop that runs on the latest 8th gen Core i5 processor. It has a magnesium-lithium body that feels upmarket and it weighs just 0.97 kg. Originally priced at RM3,799, this ultra-portable laptop is now going for less than RM3,500 in Malaysia.
