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!

UPDATE 2: Lazada has revealed more details for the Surface Laptop pre-order!
After a 2-in-1 tablet, a 2-in-1 convertible, and an all-in-one desktop, Microsoft finally stepped into the realm of bog-standard laptops with the aptly named Surface Laptop. It is a curious device with beautiful but frustrating design choices that was ultimately rather well received.
The most frustrating for us Malaysians though, was the fact that you couldn’t buy one even if you wanted to. Well, that looks like it’s about to change really soon.

The Kinect’s days are officially numbered, as Microsoft is finally discontinuing their motion-sensing accessory for the Xbox.
Not impressed with the new Microsoft Surface Pro? Neither was I. Thankfully, Microsoft just launched a brand new update to their interesting take on the 2-in-1 detachable laptop, the Surface Book. This is the Surface Book 2.

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.
UPDATE: Microsoft confirms that the new Surface Pro for 2017 will be officially available in Malaysia starting 15 August 2017.
The 5th generation Microsoft Surface Pro has finally arrived in Malaysia. This convertible 2-in-1 laptop was first announced a few months ago and you can now secure your unit online from as low as RM3,699.

The Microsoft Surface Laptop is a beautiful piece of engineering. Many are saying that it’s probably the best built Windows laptop to date. Paired with its sleek lines and minimalist design, the Surface Laptop will certainly turn heads when you whip it out in your local Starbucks (especially that burgundy one).
But the problem with precision machining and having everything sealed away is often that these devices are difficult to repair, even by professionals, let alone in a DIY setting. In fact, according to iFixit, it’s impossible to repair without completely destroying it.
Shortly after Apple showed off their new space-gray Magic Keyboard, Microsoft‘s flexing their keyboard muscles with the release of their brand new keyboard. It’s called the Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID and I think you already know what its standout feature is.
Microsoft isn’t the only one releasing a slew of new devices. Huawei‘s also got some toys to show us and they’re an update to the company’s previous first Windows 10 device, the MateBook. This time, there are three variants — called the MateBook X, MateBook E and MateBook D — and they’re all a little different from each other.
