Chromebooks have always intrigued me. For what I do, a Chromebook seems like the perfect workhorse but the problem always was — Chromebooks were hard to find in Malaysia.
Well, not anymore because Acer Malaysia has just launched a slew of them plus two Chromeboxes.
No, you didn’t read that wrongly, we said MateBook, not MacBook.
Huawei has apparently gone to great lengths to put ownership on a name that we’d never expect. This comes after news that Chinese tech conglomerate will be entering the PC market in the near future. Supposedly, making a hybrid device that’ll rival the Microsoft’s Surface and other PC-makers’ 2-in-1s.
For all things about Chinese tech companies, we media bees usually rely on Weibo. Facebook is banned in China, so locals rely on Weibo for their social media needs. A source for both official and rumoured details on the latest Huawei and Xiaomi devices.
Weibo again comes to the rescue with rumours suggesting that Huawei will enter the PC segment with a device dubbed “MateBook” – cue raised eyebrows.
Laptops, 2-in-1s, Surfaces’ and iPad Pros, what do they all have in common? They’re more productive than regular mobile devices; the commonality? A keyboard. Yes, the way we type dictate how productive we are, or at least for the time being.
So since we’ve seen that drafting long-winded text has always been a headache-inducing experience; hence, Google has reworked their existing Pixel brand to encase a new screen and bluetooth keyboard combination in the form of the Pixel C(onvertible).
Could this be a direct answer to the dwindling tablet sales? Convergence devices have a chance to occupy some market share and it seems that most manufacturers are coming up with some sort of variation to tackle this problem.
