Microsoft has given the icon for its Office family of apps a whole new, fresh and modern look, and they are very proud of it. The new set of icons is part of Microsoft’s ongoing overhaul of the Office experience with a shift towards a more cloud-centric service.
Oh boy, I didn’t see this coming but it looks like we have a brand new competitor in the wireless headphones with active noise cancellation, and it comes from the most unlikely of companies: Microsoft. It’s called the Surface Headphones.
Microsoft has finally updated their flagship detachable 2-in-1 and it’s called the Surface Pro 6 — I guess they’re done with dropping the number. Maybe it got too confusing even for them. Nevertheless I’m glad it’s back, but the rest of the device leaves some to be desired. Let’s just say that if you were expecting a big redesign, be prepared to be disappointed.
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.
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: Official price and models have been revealed!
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.
