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.

Don’t you just love it when you wake up to a massive security exploit that affects pretty much every device you own that has a processor? If you do, you’re going to love it when you find out that there are actually TWO massive security exploits that affect pretty much every device you own that has a processor.
They’re called Meltdown and Spectre, and here’s what you should know about these vulnerabilities as well as what you can do to keep yourself safe.

I think we all saw this day coming. With how powerful mobile processors are getting, it was only a matter of time before mobile silicon makers made the big push to get their chips in full-fledged Windows laptops and tablets. For Qualcomm, that day has arrived, but for everyone else, the question is: What’s new?
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.

Microsoft has made probably the most important refresh, at least in their hardware division, of the year and first impressions are a little lukewarm. Their updated device is called the Surface Pro (so they’ve dropped the numbering scheme) and although it seems like a pretty good upgrade overall, there are one or two big design choices that leave us befuddled.
OK. We thought this would be pretty obvious, but clearly there are more vulnerable people out there than we thought. In any case, here’s a super helpful PSA:
The WhatsApp messages regarding WannaCry affecting online transactions and spreading through WhatsApp are FAKE.
Besides the launch of some stunning new hardware, perhaps the most important thing about Microsoft‘s event was the launch of Windows 10 S. However, its similarities with a previous attempt of a similar vein — which failed spectacularly, by the way — does raise some worrying questions.
Has Microsoft learned from past mistakes?
Microsoft just unveiled its latest laptop — aptly named the Surface Laptop — and it sits somewhere between the tablet-like Surface Pro and the 2-in-1 convertible Surface Book. And that’s a sweet spot most will be very happy with because that means it’s just a laptop without the complications of any detachable bits.
In fact, being “without complications” seems to be a recurring theme with this new Windows device.
