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.
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.
In tech, it feels like everything that was once big will eventually become small. Stuff like phones, desktop towers, laptops, and display bezels have all shrunk significantly over the past few years. It’s all about getting more into less and last year, gaming laptops got a massive leg up in this space.
NVIDIA’s Max-Q design GPUs were created for the sole purpose of cramming the best graphical performance in the smallest form-factor possible — even in bodies that are as slim as 2cm thick. And that gave way to a rise in the number of super slim gaming laptops that, as we found out, were all pretty darn good.
So, if the slim ones are so good, why would you ever buy something as massive as Lenovo’s Legion Y920 gaming laptop?
It’s always exciting for people who work on the go when Lenovo launches a brand new set of ThinkPads, especially when its their flagship ThinkPad X1 laptops. And there’s good reason for that because they’re really good at what they’re designed to do.
This year, it’s no different, only it kind of is because my favourite ThinkPad X1 device has a brand new feature that I’ve been longing for.

Huawei’s got a few new products this MWC, but we can’t say they weren’t unexpected. With a brand new MediaPad and what looks like Huawei’s attempt to tackle the MacBook Pro, they’re also debuting their 3GPP 5G CPE.
UPDATE: Microsoft Malaysia reveals the official launch date for the Surface Book 2!
Earlier we found out that the Surface Book 2 will be up for pre-orders in Malaysia tomorrow, courtesy of Thunder Match Technology. What we didn’t realise was that you could already place your pre-orders for the 2-in-1 detachable laptop on Lazada.
To me, Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 was the only “proper” laptop they launched in 2017. It had power, looks and most importantly a USB Type C port (yeah, I love me some USB-C). But today we found out that the best part was yet to come. You can actually pre-order this 2-in-1 detachable laptop in Malaysia tomorrow!

When you think business, you think ThinkPad. And their X1 series of devices represent some of the best no-frills laptop experiences in the world. This year, Lenovo’s making them even better than before.

Oh boy. Acer threw down the gauntlet in 2016 when they snatched the crown of world’s thinnest laptop right out of HP’s hands. The original Swift 7 was a stunning 9.98mm thick, making it the first laptop to take things below 1cm. It’s been two years since then and nobody’s been able to beat Acer’s accomplishment.
Left without a contender, Acer decided to take things a step further and outdo themselves. Here’s the world’s thinnest laptop 2.0.
I’m someone who’s obsessed with light laptops. This obsession stems partly from the fact that I carry a lot of heavy equipment with me to events but mostly it’s because I’m weak af. That’s why LG’s Gram was always something I was super attracted to but could never get my hands on, because Malaysia.
Today though, I may have found the best alternative. It’s Acer’s Swift 5 and this sleek ultrabook weighs just 970g.
