GIGABYTE show off Aorus notebook, playing Battlefield 4 at 5760x1080

Computex 2014 - After seeing so much tech in my life, it takes something quite big to really impress me - but GIGABYTE did just that last week at Computex. The company had one of its latest Aorus gaming notebooks on display, running Battlefield 4 on a triple-screen setup for a total resolution of 5760x1080. Check out the video below:

 

 

Impressive, isn't it?! Inside of the GIGABYTE Aorus X7 gaming notebook, we have a 17.3-inch Full HD display, Intel's Haswell-based Core i7 processor, up to 32GB of DDR3L-1866MHz RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M GDDR5 GPUs in SLI, up to 3 x 512GB mSATA SSDs with a 2TB drive as storage, a 1920x1080 display with 72% NTSC Color Gamut, with all of this arriving in at just 0.9 inches thick, and just 6.6lb or 3kg in weight.

Clevo's P377SM-A notebook features Radeon R9 M290X GPUs in CrossFire

Computex 2014 - The Clevo notebooks are something I just have to see when I'm at Computex, with this year being no different. There were a few great notebooks on display, but the standout was definitely the P377SM-A.

With a name that will make it hard for people to remember it, or notice it, the Clevo P377SM-A is a powerhouse of a notebook. Clevo has crammed in an Intel Core i7 Extreme processor into the 17.3-inch notebook, a display that features a resolution of 1920x1080. The GPUs (yes, plural) in the notebook packs quite the punch. There's an option of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 880M in SLI, or AMD's Radeon R9 M290X in CrossFire.

For storage, we have two HDDs, or two SSDs, Creative's Sound Blaster X-Fi MB 3, and a gaming keyboard. It's a beauty in person.

Computex 2014 - GIGABYTE has come out swinging at Computex this year, unveiling its new super powerful, but also very light 13-inch gaming notebook, the AORUS X3.

GIGABYTE has crammed in quite an array of technology into its AORUS X3 notebook - with it coming in two models, the X3 which is a 13.3-inch model, and the slightly bigger X3 Plus which comes in at 13.9 inches. The X3's 13.3-inch display has a resolution of 2560x1440, but you can opt the X3 Plus with either the 2560x1440 panel, or go one better with the QHD+ 3200x1800 display.

When it comes to pushing those pixels in games, you need a serious GPU, right? Well, GIGABYTE has used the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M with 6GB of RAM, something that should ensure you keep those FPS numbers up high.

Lenovo N20p Chromebook with folding screen aims at education market

Lenovo has unveiled a new Chromebook that has a cool trick that other devices on the market lack. That cool trick is a screen that can be folded into different positions. The machine is called the N20p and it is aimed at the education market where price is often the deciding factor when it comes to a purchase.

 

TweakTown image news/3/7/37523_2_lenovo_n20p_chromebook_with_folding_screen_aims_at_education_market.jpg

 

Lenovo's N20p Chromebook will sell for $329, a cheaper standard Chromebook called the N20 lacking the folding screen is offered for $279. That N20p is more like the Yoga line of tablets with a screen supporting 10 points of touch and a hinge that allows the screen to be folded backwards up to 300 degrees.

Apple refreshes its MacBook Air, drops $100 from the price

Apple has just refreshed its MacBook Air lineup, pushing in Intel's Haswell-based processors. The entry-level model now sports the faster 1.4GHz Core i5 processor, versus the 1.3GHz processor in the model that was shipping to consumers, until yesterday that is.

 

TweakTown image news/3/7/37385_07_apple_refreshes_its_macbook_air_drops_100_from_the_price.jpg

 

The company has also slashed $100 from the price of each MacBook Air, with the 11-inch MBA starting at $899, while the 13-inch now starts at $999. Other than that, in typical Apple fashion, nothing else has changed. The base configuration still includes a 128GB SSD and 4GB of RAM. We haven't seen the new MacBook Air's shrink, like we expected, so that should hopefully come later in the year. a

LeakedTT: HP's upcoming 14-inch Slatebook will run Android as sole OS

Traditionally, Android has widely been reserved for devices under 10-inches in screen size, and even then, unless the device was a tablet or phone, it was always the second OS on the system. Today a leaked video has given us some insight into what could be the next Slatebook from HP. If true, the video means that HP will be one of the first OEMs to release a fully Android powered laptop in the 14-inch class.

 

TweakTown image news/3/7/37362_1_leakedtt_hp_s_upcoming_14_inch_slatebook_will_run_android_as_sole_os.jpg

 

The video has been removed due to HP claiming a copyright violation, but it depicted a 14-inch Slatebook from HP that would be running Android as its sole operating system. The screen would be a full 1920x1080 resolution, and would feature a quad-core NVIDIA SoC. The device would feature a touchscreen so Android's soft-keys could still be utilized, and they would also be on the physical keyboard. Hit the source link below if you like, but unfortunately the video is long gone.

Apple hires watchmaker to help design next, even thinner MacBook Air

Apple's next-gen MacBook Air will arrive as an 11.6-inch device, but the feats of engineering required to get it thinner than the already-thin MacBook Air we all know and love have seen the company hire another watchmaker, according to our friends over at MobileGeek.

 

TweakTown image news/3/7/37351_03_apple_hires_watchmaker_to_help_design_next_even_thinner_macbook_air.jpg

 

MobileGeek's sources in the supply industry claim that Apple's next MacBook Air will be "even thinner, lighter, and above all more compact". According to people familiar with the matter, Apple has hired an extra watchmaker for the development of the new MBA. The watchmaker has the experience in working with highly complex, and very small components.

 

What Apple wants to see, is an 11.6-inch MacBook Air released, but on the dimensions of the classic 10.1-inch netbook form factor. If there's a company that can get the engineering and design right, it's Apple. It should be quite the small notebook when released later this year.

Apple's next MacBook Air rumored to be fanless, and even thinner

Apple's already-thin MacBook Air might be a little thinner with its successor, which will reportedly ship as a 12-inch device, featuring a "fanless" design. The current MBA has a tiny, but very quiet fan.

 

TweakTown image news/3/6/36487_09_apple_s_next_macbook_air_rumored_to_be_fanless_and_even_thinner.jpg

 

The new MBA would also replace the mechanical "clicker" in the track pad, which would see a gesture-only and tap control, instead of physical clicks. Right now, the MacBook Air comes in two display sizes, 11.6- and 13-inch. Providing a 12-inch screen with a Retina resolution, and being even thinner, would be quite the device from Apple.

 

If Apple could surprise, and make the screen disconnect from the keyboard, now that would be a nice change. Imagine if when it was disconnected, it flicked off from OS X and enabled iOS, making it a 12-inch tablet. We've already heard about an iPad Pro... why can't this be it?

The simple yet sleek style makes P34G v2 a great choice for business people that like to kick back and game on the side when not presenting or typing up reports on the P34G v2," GIGABYTE said in a release.
