Fujitsu Lifebook S904

   The Fujitsu Lifebook S904 isn’t attractive at all but one thing good about this laptop is that it get’s the job done. It has a lot of features that comes with a 2560 x1440 screen resolution. This touchscreen laptop computer is a packed in narrow triangular, wider at the apex and it tapers down at the end. In other words, it’s shaped like a leaf. This laptop is 13.3 inches. It’s not thin as other laptops. It’s sturdy and so convenient to use. Just imagine, it weighs only 1.5kg. It uses a standard keyboard. The keyboard looks flat and does not have any depth. The keyboard has wide gaps spaces between it’s keys. This is good if you want your typing to be more prĂ©cised. This is excellent because you won’t be grazing your touchpad. This is a business laptop that has some good features that other laptops do not have. Included in the Fujitsu S904 is a Windows 8.1 Pro, a fingerprint scanner and smart card slot. This can be used for security purposes when you log in. It also carries a 3G SIM slot so you can use it for mobile broadband services.
    The 13.3 display has a very high resolution. It has very good sRGB gamut at 91.7. The display has a well - polished finish. It does not reflect too much light. This is good when you are outside and the sun is glowing or when you are in a dimly lit room. It’s well polished finish makes the colors more alive. The icons and fonts had a lot of clarity in the Windows 8.1. This lifebook book is not meant to be used for gaming purposes. You can connect this laptop to a second screen because it has an HDMI, mini display port and VGA outputs that can connect to almost everything.

   One of the plus factors of this lifebook is it’s battery life.  It can run for at least fourteen hourshere is no need for you to bring your charger with you when you go to your office. Other specs are the following:  3 USB3 ports, Ethernet port, 3.5mm headset port. It has a clear built in speaker. The sound system is Realtek HD Audio. It is equipped with a touchpad and touchscreen.

This ultraportable lifebook has wired network ports measuring 1x10/100/1000 and a Bluetooth device. This is one of the best ultraportable business laptops you can buy. When buying a laptop, be sure it fits your needs. The probable cost is $2150. Who knows, maybe you can get a good deal for this since this has been in the market for at least 2 years now. The other model equipped with an i7 processor will cost more.

Acer Aspire R 15

   The Aspire R 15 is a very flexible laptop. You can bring this to your work and it will surely give out an outstanding performance. This laptop is adjustable since it is a 2 in 1 laptop It such a pleasant laptop to use thanks to it’s comfortable keyboard and it’s clear looking HD looking display. It’s a real solid 2 in 1 laptop design. There are some flaws like it’s hard drive which is a bit slow and I wish that the charge on this laptop last longer. If you are tagging this laptop wherever you are going, be sure you bring it’s charger. For a budget of $650 you are still getting your money’s worth. The Aspire R 15 weighs 4.8 pounds. The Aspire R 15 15 inch design is as heavy as the average 15 inch laptops. The R 15 isn’t like the ordinary 15 inch laptop because it has a rotating hinge. This allow the laptop to fold back it’s display  in to a full 360 degrees and it turns it to a big tablet.
   You can use the tablet form especially when you are using it for presentations. This is because it can be folded like a tent and you can use the touch display screen much easier. It really makes it convenient when presentations are made to a small group. On the right side you will see a HDMI video out port, 2 USB 3.0 ports and one USB-C port. On the right there is another USB 2.0 pot and an SD card reader. If you want to do intensive work, this 2 in 1 laptop/tablet is perfect for the job.  The screen has a 1920 x 1080 panel that looks fabulous. It brings out more scintillating colors and sharper looking text. It’s quite bright because it averages 310 nits of brightness. This exceeds the standard 245 nits average. It has a glossy display that can be a bit glaring when you are using it outdoors. The keyboard gives you a pleasant typing experience. It has backlighting for the whole keyboard and this is a welcome experience when you are typing in dimly lit areas. I personally do not like the battery’s lifespan. It can run for only 5 hours and then you will have to recharge it. This is just a little bit of a setback. The audio sounds good and clear.


    Performance wise, The Acer Aspire R 15 is really fast, especially if you are doing ordinary tasks. If you are used to multitasking, this can be the right 2 in 1 laptop/ tablet that you will need. The base model has a Core 15 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 1TB 5,400 hard drive. The added 1TB is a power booster. This will cost $650. The upgraded model has a Core i7 processor and 12 GB of RAM. All other specs are the same as of the base model. This will cost $849. For me the base model is good enough and this will suit the needs of most users.


Dell Precision 5510

   Dell has always come up with computers that have good functions and there is nothing different with the Precision 5510. This is a classy laptop that can produce favorable results. The price of this laptop starts at $1400 for the basic model. You can upgrade this laptop but it will cost more. The basic Precision 5510 model has the following specifications: an Intel Core i5- 6300HQ processor 8 GB of RAM, NVidia Quadro M1000 M graphics, a FHD matte display and a 500 GB HDD. The one with my own opinion and review is that of a higher model and  some of the configurations are different. This is why it cost about $2600. The specs are the following: Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 with 2.8 GHz. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro. The 8GB Ram can be upgraded to 16 GB RAM. It has a 512 SSD storage. The Display size is 15.6 inches and the resolution is 3840  x 2160. It uses an Nvidia Quadro M1000M graphics card. It has a 2 GB video memory, a WI-FI 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1. The touchpad size is 4.1 x 3.1 inches. There are several ports: a HDMI, security lock slot, USB Headphone that can be used for a microphone jack, 2 USB ports. There are card slots for a SD or SD card reader. The size of this laptop is is 14.06 x 9.27 x 0.66 inches and the weight is 4.6 pounds.
    The design of the Dell Precision 5510 looks similar to the XPS 15. This is so because the lid and bottom are constructed with the same dark – silver aluminum. Everyone who looks at this computer can notice that there is a carbon - fiber flat surface which is so convenient and comfy. If you look at this computer closely, you’ll find a very thin bezel that works well. This laptop gets thinner on the front and this is what makes it light and smooth. This laptop is a bit smaller when compared to some of it’s competitors. The  Precision 5510’s keyboard lacks depth but because of it’s comfy touchpad surface, typing becomes a bit easier. Scrolling is not a problem with this laptop. The Display looks great and this is because of several factors like the hard to spot bezel and it’s capability of producing fine detailed images makes this laptop so desirable. Other factors that can also be considered are it’s glowing backlight and an array of color gamuts.

    The Dell Precision 5510 has dual speakers that are powerful. The audio is quite clear. With the aforementioned specifications gives the user a very good performance. You can run simultaneous videos and it will not affect the performance of this laptop. This laptop has the best ports available and in their right places. On the left side you can find a thunderbolt 3 port an d a dual headphone and microphone port. on the right side there is an SD card slot, a USB 3.0 port, power indicator and security slot. I personally do not like where the webcam is located. It should be placed above the screen and at the center most point instead at the bottom’s left hand corner.This is in an inappropriate position. It ruins the view if you are talking to somebody on skype. Ouch, you might have to slouch when somebody is viewing you and talking to you at the same time.  The graphics of this laptop will work well with 3D applications. This laptop does not overheat. With that said, you have to make your choice. As for me even the basic Dell Precision 5510 is good enough especially if you are going to use it primarily for business purposes.

Dell Latitude 13 7370

   The Dell Latitude 13 7370 is thinner and good looking. This has been the trend of most of the business laptops in the market today It does have the same wonderful bezel free display as the XPS 13. The starting price for this laptop is $1300. It is built quite strong. This laptop has good security features These are the following specs of the 2nd model  ( There are 3 of them ). 1.1 GHz Intel Core m5-6Y57, 0S Windows 10 Pro, 8GB RAM, 256 SSD storage, 13.3 inch of screen display, 1920x1080 ordinary resolution, Intel HD Graphics 515, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 8260 Wi-Fi model, Bluetooth 4.1, 3.9 x 1.8 inches touchpad size . It has ports for the SD card slot, SIM card, Thunderbolt 3, Combo headphone/microphone jack, lock slot, micro HDMI, 3 USB ports, 2 card slots one for the SIM and the other for the SD memory reader. The size of the laptop is 12 x 8.3 x 0.56 inches and it weighs 2.7 pounds.
   This business laptop is quite lustrous and has no circular edges. It has a nice looking carbon fiber and aluminum that is rather sturdy. You can choose between 2 lids: the dark gunmetal aluminum  
( standard ) or the black, soft touch,carbon fiber which is available on  models that use the 3200 x 1800 display. Both lids have the standard logo feature of Dell in color black. It’s weight of 2.7 pounds and size of 12 x 8.3 x 0.6 makes it easier for the user to carry around. You will surely like the ports because of it’s locations. On the left side you can spot 2 thunderbolt 3 ports ( one of them can be used for charging. There is also the micro-HDMI port and a SIM card slot that can be used for mobile data. On the right side is the SD card reader, audio output, a USB 3.0 port and a security lock slot. I do not like the location of the 720p webcam because it is placed on the bottom left corner of the bezel. This is not a good place to put it.
     The Keyboard on this laptop is quite pleasant to use but I can see that they are a bit close to each other. It has a touchpad measuring 3.9 x 1.8 inch. It gives the user enough space if he or she wants to navigate the web. It is just perfect for scrolling. The Intel Core M processors installed in the latitude 13 7370 has the Intel vPRO system management technology, an TPM encryption for the data. You can have the option of having a fingerprint reader for biometric logins.  There are two kinds of screens the 1080 touch screen from the lower end model and the 1800 non touch screen from the higher end version. Both of them do produce bright images but not as sharp as I want it to be. The 1080p version has a brightness score of 395 nits, while the 1800 has a brightness score of 327 nits. The 1800 version has a 117 percent sRGB color gamut rating, while the 1080p has a sRGB gamut rating of 107 percent. The Delta-E scores on the 1800 version is 6.1 and the 1080 version scored 9.5. The score that is nearer to 0 is better. This laptop has a good audio system.
    This laptop is a good machine to do work. It is quite competent but cannot handle to many jobs at the same time. If you are using the version with 1080p, it is not advisable to stream videos while you are doing other things. The battery of this laptop won’t last you the whole day so bring your charger wherever you go. The 1080p version will last for almost 8 hours and the 1800 version will last for just over 6 hours. The Dell Latitude 13 7370 can also heat up, especially when you are streaming videos. The entry level for this laptop is priced at $1300 and this base model has the following specifications a Core m3-6y30 CPU, 4 GB of RA, a 128 SSD and a 1080 display. The specifications I mentioned above are that of the 2nd model and it does cost $1743. The 3rd model is the high end model that will cost $2785 and it's specifications are the following:  a Core m7-6Y75 processor, a 3200 x 1800 display, 16 GB of RAM 512 GB carbon filled lid instead of the usual aluminum. If you think that this is the laptop you want then you must really think about it.

Microsoft Surface Pro 4

   The Microsoft Surface 4 came out in 2015 and with some changes from the previous model. It has a bit more radiance into it, a new user interface, with an aero Glass transparency and a dim like effect that was well known for Windows 7. The looks of both the Surface 3 and 4 look similar. What has changed though is the display measurement from the previous 12 inches to 12.3 inches without altering its footprint. The thickness was sliced of from the previous thickness of 9.1 mm to 8.4 mm. They were able to do this by taking the windows button out. This gives Windows 10 an easy way to the Start Menu. The optical stacks like the sensors, diodes and pixels which are beneath the does become closer to the glass.  This is Microosft’s distinct PixelScreen Technology. With this said, the screen becomes brighter and better than the previous model. This will suit the needs for people who are creative. Users will also have better looking movies.
    The one thing that bothers me is that bothers me is that they did not include in the package the type cover. This will add up to the purchase price. The surface pen that comes with Microsoft Surface 4 feels like a real pencil. It has one flat side. Hold this surface pen and it feels so pleasant. With the PixelSense display and the pen tips, both of this makes the tablet nice to use. The type cover has more spacing between the keys. The new type cover is a bit more thicker and firm than than it’s predecessor. It feels more like a real keyboard when you use it. The touchpad is wider and it is  covered in glass instead of plastic. It also has a biometric functionality and fingerprint ID. You will have to purchase the type cover for an additional $129. The type cover is colored black and is not available in other colors.
    The midrange Microsoft Surface Pro 4  will cost $1300. The specs for this model the specifications are the following: The CPU has a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5 -6300U ( dual core, 3MB cache, it can go up to 3GHz with Turbo Boost. ). Intel HD Graphics 520, 3GB RAM LPDDR3, 12.3 inch screen display, 2,736 x 1824, PixelSense display., 256GB SSdD PClE 3.0, USB 3.) mini display port, microSD card reader ( UHS – 1) , headphone / microphone jack, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi ( 2 x2 MIMO ), Bluetooth 4.0  ( low energy ), 8MP rear-facing auto-focus camera ( 1080 HD ), 5MP front-facing camera,1080 HD camera, The weight is 1.73 pounds and the size is 11.5 x 7.93 x0.36 inches. The Core i5 and 4GB of RAM will cost$1000. You can buy the higher end model but the cost will go even higher. The battery life last for 3hours and so many minutes. It’s a lot better than the previous model. The Microsoft Surface Pro will work well for anyone.


Apple MacBook Air 13 inch ( 2015 )

    Apple does not change things quite often. It only does when it needs to do so. The 2015 MacBook Air has upgraded some of it’s features like it’s Intel Core i5 processor but it still has the same aluminum body design and it still uses a lot of components like it’s forerunners. Probably, it did not change it’s specs because Apple believes that they are the leader and why change when everything seems to be good. The market has really improved a lot. All laptop brands are trying to upgrade every year. I believe that Apple too, has to follow the trend because you can be on top now and later find out that another brand is climbing up the ladder so fast. This is just my view.
   As mentioned above, the body made of aluminum has not changed. Anyway, it’s really beautiful, light ( 1.4 kg. ) and slim ( 17mm ). This is what makes the MacBook Air worthwhile. This particular laptop was planned out to minimize space. It’s tapered off edges on the front side makes the front edges just a little bit thicker. As a result of this the laptop becomes quite stunning when you look at it. The keyboard has not changed from it’s 2014 model. The keys are still the same but still responsive.  Apple has stuck with the same touchpad that is still as sharp as it was last year. Users will surely benefit from it’s connectivity with it’s wireless 802.11 ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4. If you are looking for an Ethernet port, there is none. Besides wired networking, you do have 2 USB 3 ports, 1 3.5mm headset jack, SDXC card reader and a Thunderbolt 2 port.  The thunderbolt 2 is a new addition and it gives the laptop double the amount of bandwidth needed. It ‘s good enough to work 4k video files coming from an external hard disk.

    The MacBook Air 13 inch does punch in some real power. With it’s dual core 1.6 GHz Intel Core 15-5250U processor and 4GB of RAM, the user can still do a lot of work although not as powerful, still it performs decently. The processors in this laptop are quite good less amount of energy and it still can be very productive. With it’s HD 6000 graphics, it can do a bit of light gaming.  In order to do this, you must turn down your settings and resolution. It carries a split view mode makes it easy to put 2 apps side by side. The MacBook Air has a new battery model that can fit in the MacBook 13 inch ( 2015 ). It has a 39.7 watt-hour lithium polymer battery. This battery is good enough. The base model has 128 GB of PCle of sturdy storage and it can be upgraded to 256 GB or even 512 GB. If you do this the cost will jump up.  The price now is about $1000. The display remains the same at 1440 x 900 TFT viewing panel. They should have upgraded this to have better viewing panels. This is my opinion

Lenovo Yoga 910

   The Lenovo Yoga 910 is very easy to appreciate. It looks good and has a lot of flexibility to it. This convertible laptop has smaller USB Type-C. The USB Type-C is good for data and charging the laptop. The other USB 3.0 Type-C is  for data video using an adapter. The adapter is not included. There is no single adapter option for data, video and power, so as far as this is concerned it cannot handle charging very well. This laptop does not well video output like an HDMl slot or an SD card slot for that matter. This laptop has changed everything with this convertible laptop. It has a thinner chassis. It has a bigger 13.9 inch UHD screen, smaller bezels a new looking keyboard layout. It uses the 7th generation processors.
    Lenovo says that this laptop is the thinnest iCore i7 powered laptop that you can find in the market today. This convertible laptop measures only 14.3mm thick. It is slimmer than the Yoga 900.  It has a more intensed styling if you compare it to it’s previous counterparts. This really is modernly design laptop. It has straight lines that gives the user sharper angles. This convertible 2 in 1 laptop has been enhanced. There are newly designed touches. The interior of this laptop has a new aluminum sheet. Because of the thinner design, you now have the new USB- Standard. With that, it gives the user new components that the user can use.. It has a new added fingerprint reader and one of the best looking laptops on a 13 inch screen.

    The display panel has a 13.9 inch screen with a new 4k resolution. This has been done without enlarging it’s chassis.  By making the bezels slender on the top and the sides, the webcam can be seen beneath the screen. It uses now the infinity screen layout. This way the webcam is on the center of the screen near the left side. Users can turn this laptop to a tent mode and the webcam will be that the center point. The keyboard ha changed, it does not have the troublesome right side short cut keys that hinders you from touching the enter key. It has even added a fingerprint reader that signs you up through windows hello by just pressing it with a finger. The Lenovo Yoga 910 comes with improved specifications like the new Intel 7th generation processors, 1TB of PCle SSD Storage, 16GB of RAM and Intel HD Graphics. The Battery life can last to a bit more than 10 hours on the UHD model and 15 plus hours on the Full HD model. The cost of this laptop /convertible starts at $1050 dollars for the FHD display and $1650 dollars for the UHD display.

XIAOMI Mi6 Soon To Be Launched

   The XIAOMI Mi6 is another Chinese manufactured Smartphone due to be launched on February 6, 2017. The XIAOMI Co. has been in operation for 6 years now and it is about to unveil it’s 6th product. They say that this will break barriers in the industry. To see is to believe. As of now, I still consider it a budget smartphone The specs and features that I am going to mention here are considered rumors. We will see the true facts when it is launched.
    The XIAOMI Mi6 will have a 5.15 inches iPS LCD, 16M colors, an FHD that has high definition.The resolutionof this smartphone 1440 x 2560 pixels and it comes with a big 570 PPI density. If this is true then this will be a really good smartphone because of it’s ingenuity. The Mi6 will use the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection This smartphone is said to be really good looking. For it’s back side, we will see a glass deign. It is said to have a lustrous metallic body and the edges are curved. I just hope it’s not a carbon copy of the Mi5 regarding the way it looks. We will just have to wait and see if it is truly different from its predecessors. According to the Company the XIAOMI Mi6 will have the Qualcomm MSM 8998 Snapdragon 835 chipset with an Octa Core ( 4x2.45z GHz Kryo and a 4 x 1.9 GH Kryro ) processor. XIAOMI Co. has confirmed this. It is believed to be the fastest processor out in the market today.

    The XIAOMI Mi6 could come out with 2 different phones. One will have 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM and the other one will have 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM. It is said to have no alternate slot for the memory card. Sad to say that the ROM sized cannot be heightened. With 6GB of RAM, it will be easy to do multitasking but gaming for me is still a question mark. This smartphone will have a 12mp rear camera with phase detection autofocus, Dual Tone LED Flash. It also has a 4 MP front camera.  This smartphone will have 3300 mAh Li – ion non – removable battery. It is suppose to have features like fast charging and wireless charging. The Mi6 will also has an eye scanner. I just don’t know whether this will be an iris or retina scanner. It is supposedly coming with sensors. I just do not know what kind and how many sensors will it have. The price of this smartphone probably will be $400.

Lenovo Yoga 900s

   The Lenovo Yoga 900s is an attractive looking laptop. It has a black and gold design that looks absolutely stunning.  This is because it’s hinge looks really expensive. If it were a watch I could compare it to a really classy and high-priced watch. The hinge is just so impressive looking. This notebook /laptop can be used in so many modes. You can flip it and fold it. This notebook looks so trendy and functions rather well. This notebook weighs 2.2 pounds with dimensions of 12.01 x 8.19 x 0.5 inches. This notebook is really classy and even the keyboard deck shows it. The keyboard has gold keys have a soft touch to it.  Typing on it is so comfortable and it is quiet. The outer chassis of this notebook is colored gold. If it does not fit your style then you can choose the silver colored one. Lenovo brags that the Yoga 900s is the world’s thinnest convertible laptop. You can carry this notebook so easily because it is really light.

   Honestly, this convertible laptop has little room for port but then it provides a lot of functions. This is fantastic since it has very few connections. The right side of this convertible laptop has a power button, headphone/ microphone jack and a USB 3.) port. The left part has a USB port that can connect to external displays. It also has a charging port that can also be used as a standard USB port.  The drawback is that this convertible laptop does not have an opening for a memory card. The Brightness of this convertible laptop scores 320 nits and this is strong enough.The color gamut (sRGB ) scores 73 percent. For me this is considered to be weak. The Delta E test  made on it’s color accuracy received a rating of 0.64 which is strong enough.

    The Yoga 900s has stereo speakers that are sharp. It uses audio app which has been preset for movies, music, games and voice. The Yoga 900s has a progressive setting that naturally modifies whatever you’re playing it comes with an equalizer if the user want to make some adjustments to the sound. This convertible laptop comes with a 1.1 GHz Intel Core m5-6y54 processor with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB and a 1920 x 1080 screen  128 GB PCle SSD This model will cost $1100. Spending a little more will give you a faster Core m7 CPU, a sharper 2560 x 1440 quad HD display 8GB of RAM and a 256GB storage. This model will cost $1200. The Yoga 900s is capable of multitasking although it is not as fast as some of it’s competitors. The battery is quite good, it can last for at least 8 hours. This convertible can heat up if you are streaming videos. The Lenovo Yoga 900s convertible laptop can be useful for most of the day.

ASUS VivoBooK E403SA

   The ASUSViIvoBook is a 14 inch budget notebook that is so light and has a nice looking design This notebook comes with a smooth aluminum lid that looks good. The laptop’s keyboard deck is made from a metal - looking plastic. It has 2 small tabs that bulge out at the back of the hinge. What it does is that it stops the lid from having scratches that may occur when placed on top of flat surfaces. The ASUS VivoBo E403SA measures 0.7 inches thick and weighs 3.8 pounds. This is quite thin and light when compared to other notebooks that are in it’s bracket. With the VivoBook E403SA comes with 2 full sized  USB ports ( One of these ports can run at a full 3.0 speed ), an HDMl  port, a nicely polished USB  Type –C that can be used for stronger charging. This notebook comes with a regular AC adapter. It also has a SD card slot that can do fast uploads of images from a digital camera. The Vivo BooK E403SA has a 0.3 megapixel camera
   The ASUS VIvoBook E403SA’s 14 inch 1920 x 1080 has a sharp display. What dampens it is the is the matte TN panel that has viewing angles that lacks depth. It it is not the brightest available in the market. It could have been a little brighter. Remember that this is a budget notebook that costs $400. There must have been some tradeoffs. The Asus VivoBook E403SA still can produce 68.5 percent  sRGB spectrum, which is the almost the same as other 14 inch notebooks. The VivoBook E403SA’s display excretes 201 nits ( nits are measurements of brightness ). This is at par with other budget notebooks.

   Usually, budget notebooks have  thinner models that tend to have mediocre keyboards. This  make typing quite hard. This is not so for the ASUS VivoBook. Typing on the keypad is quite pleasant. The shape of each letter is just right. If you compare the trackpad with other budget notebooks, it is quite better. This budget notebook has enough space to scroll on. This notebook uses the enhanced sonic master audio. The Battery life does last a full 9 hours. This is very good when you compare this to other budget notebooks. The notebook remains cool. It will feel a bit warm if you place it on your lap.


   This budget notebook has the following specs: Intel Pentium N3700 Quad core processor, 4 GB of Ram, 128 GB eMMC flash storage, 14 inch HD ( 1920 x 1080 ) matte display non-touch, WIFI/AC/Bluetooth 4.1 The N3700 is not the fastest processor but it has a lot of power to do a lot of tasks. Even then for the price of $400 you are getting a good deal.

Apple MacBook Pro 15 Inch ( 2015 ).

    The Apple 15 inch Mac Book Pro ( 2015 ) is an  older model than the one that has been released  in 2016 but it is still a Powerful force and it come s with a Retina display. This MacBook is really an ingenious product because of the Force Touch Pad that it carries along with it. There are so much sensitive commands that are in this product and the touch Pad can do all of these tasks. There is also a non – mandatory Radeon R9 M370X which Apple says can speed your graphics 80 times more than the previous version. You also will get an i7 processor  ( which is really fast ), lean and strong. It looks the same as it’s previous model. The design is still le and it still uses the same aluminum chassis black bordered display. This has been the standard for Apple’s highest end notebook for quite a number of years.  It is so smooth looking and it has a nice feel to it.  It has fine looking speakers that are not so obvious. Take a pick underneath this laptop and you will see unnoticeable vents on the side. You can find the usual logo on the lid. The Apple MacBook measure 14.13 x 9.73 x 0.71 inches and weighs  4.49 pounds.
    There’s a valid reason for the Retina Display. When you watch movies , you will notice that the colors are  rich and all of this is because of the Retina Display that enhances it. The 15.4 inch has a 2080 x 1800 screen.  The screen will look magnificent as soon as you open it. The moment it is opened , the app icons  and images will come out with beautiful colors. Given a brightness test the MacBook Pro’s Display indicated a very good rating of 303 nits. This outdid most of it’s rivals.The MacBook Pro can give out 86 percent of color gamuts. It’s better than some of it’s competitors. The speakers are clear sounding and loud. The Retina’s biggest asset is it’s Force Touch trackpad. It uses force sensors and haptic feedback to pretend that there is sensation. One of the Force Touch advantages is that is that it triggers off special functions when you press very hard on the pad. It can let the user preview a page if he /she wants to. It also has pressure sensitive commands so that the user can go fast forward with I Movies and videos. The speed depends on how hard you are pressing. The keyboard is the same as it’s predecessor. The keyboard is still chic looking and it has keys that can be used to modify brightness, playback and volume. It can also pull up Mission Control so you can take a look at all the apps.

  The MacBook Pro ( 2015 )  has 2 USB 3.0 ports and 1 HDMl port. an SDXC card slot, 2 thunderbolt ports. It still has the same 720p webcam that and it's very reliable. The MacBook Pro ( 2015 ) still has the 4th generation 2.5 GHz Core i7 processor  and 16 GB of RA.M This will give the user  a stable speedy performance. It has a 512 SSD storagie. You can depend on the MacBook PRO ( 2015 ) to stay cool. The  battery can last for about 9 hours. The 2. 2 GHz quadcore core i7 processor 16GB of RAM,  256GB of storage and integrated Iris Pro graphics did cost $2000 upon it's release in 2015 The 2.5 GHz CPU 16 GB of RAM  and 512 storage did cost $2500 when it was released in 2015. Who knows you can get a better bargain now since the 2016 MacBook Pro 15 inch has been released already. This is a very good laptop and it will come in handy

LG G6 Smartphone

   Most Brands  are coming out with their new smartphones in 2017 and so is LG with it’s LG G6 smartphones. LG plans to put some upgrades to it’s new phone.  Probably it wants to come out with a new design that will be water resistant. What we hear is that it might with a non - removal  battery and others are saying that the removable battery will still be a part of the G6. One change that technology experts are talking about is that The 6 will use a copper heat pipe cooling system. The reason for this is so that the battery will not overheat.  It’s been testing the battery at temperatures 15% higher than other smartphones .
     One good reason for LG G6 to stop using the removable battery is because the Company wants to use a cutting – edge waterproofing method. Rumors that are going around points to a adhesive waterproofing approach. It is expected to have a LTE, bendable display, Gorilla Glass 4, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5.0, Fingerprint and retina scanner, wireless charging, fast charging and stylus. It is said have two horizontally aligned cameras and the flash is located in between the two but again this is not sure. Who knows, they just might go with the dual cameras. Because others say it can have a front and rear camera which LG might find more realistic.
The set up of the sensors will probably be the same as it’s predecessors. The design might not be trendy as others but the fingerprint scanner will also be used as a power button It probably will use OLEd displays. Rumors are saying QUAD resolution will stay as is. This is not for sure because it may opt to use a higher resolution The LG will probably come up with a flat display. The QHD + resolution will have 9: 18 aspect ratio.
   Here are the other specs of the LG G6: It will have 4200 mAh battery. The camera will contain such features such as Optical image stabilization plus, Dual LED, geo tagging, facial recognition, the supposed front camera  will have a 7.0 Megapixel , Rear camera 24 Megapixels. As i said, it could have a dual camera at the back. Memory is  at 32, 64 and 128GB, Operatiing System is the 6.0 OS that is being used for androids. The processor is the Snapdragon Qualcomm Octa –core 3.0 GHz processor, 6 - * GB of RAM It has a 5.6 inch 4k display and a 4096 x2160 screen resolution. It has a 
unibody made of aluminum that is well refined. The audio of the LG G6 will have a high fidelity sound reproduction and it is similar to the audio of the LG  G5. The LG G6 will be launched sometime April or May 2017. It will carry a price tag of $750.

Lenovo Z70 ( 80FGOODBUS )

   If anyone wants to have a bigger display laptop then the Lenovo Z70 is the laptop for you. It can be a desktop replacement at the same time. It does give the user the same usage that is expected from a Windows PC. The laptop is not stylish. I would say it is just ordinary. It comes with a full 17. 3 inch HD screen. The keyboard is nice to use because it  is pleasant and easy to use. This is not a gaming laptop, I do not advise to buy this laptop that has a huge screen. This is a fifth generation laptop computer This works good on office and mulltimedia files. You can never call this an ultraportable laptop because it weighs 6.6 pounds. It comes with an accutype keypad and a number pad on the side. The keyboard measures 11. 14 x 0.99 x 16.46 inches. The keyboard is not back lit unlike it’s predecessor.

    The Lenovo Z70 has an Intel Core 17- 5500U GHz processor, 16 GB DDR3L SD RAM, NViDIA GeForce, GT480M 2 GB, 1 TB 54000rpm hard drive, 8 GB Solid State Drive DVDRW.  This is avail able with Intel Core i5 series. One thing that is not pleasing is it’s battery. It can last for only 4 hours with it’s integrated 4 cell battery. The cover of this laptop is ebony black. Having a tactile feel make it look classy if compared to it’s competitors. By having a 1TB 5400 rpm with 8GB of strong storage, it boots quite fast and it performs quite well. It’s preinstalled with Windows 8.1 or10 Operating System.
    It’s quite unbelievable, why they did not add a touch system to this computer. In the center beneath the spacebar is a big clickpad that offers Windows 8 gesture support. This is not good for gaming purposes. This is actually a laptop that can replace any desktop you have. It is not overwhelming in any sense but it will be a useful support for most of works. No matter what others say this is still a good laptop to have. It is especially nice when you are watching movies and youtube videos.. Nothing fancy about it but it still does the job. It costs about $880 but by now it could be cheaper

HP EliteBook Folio G1

   The HP Elite E Book is a great force to reckon with. It is strongly built and this makes it a good laptop to use. This is an ultra thin lapiop with a nice finishing aluminum chassis . It has a distinct logo that is well polished.  This makes it a beautiful looking laptop. The Hp Elite EBook G1 has the same aesthetic on the inside as the former one , but the  bezels  that are on the sides are lustrous. The Elite Book folio is rather thin because it measures only 11.5 x 8.23 x 0.47 inches . it weighs 2.04 pounds . It is quite durable because it has passed  the Mil_STD  strength test that is used for dust, vibration , shock and altitudes. This laptop is not spill resistant, so anyone who buys this laptop must make sure that no liquid spills on this laptop. The HP EliteBook Folio G1 comes with several kinds of tools that are useful.  This includes  a password manager, drive encryption software  and HP Spare Key. The Hp Spare Key will let you log in even if you have forgotten your password. The EliteBook Folio G1 come with the HP SURE START with Dynamic Protection that keeps your BIOS safe. It simply means that if a hacker hacks your BIOS . it will replaced right away with the previous. This is great.
   There are two versions the HP EliteBook G1 the non touch and 4k touch display.. Both have detailed images  but the 4k touch display had more colorful images. The 4k  does produce 161 percent SRGB color gamut. The HP EliteBook FOLIO G1 screen is a a lot brighter than it’s  predecessor because it measures 377 nits when the light meter was used.  The EliteBook Folio is really bright enough if you are using for your daily purposes. For it’s audio  the HP EliteBook Folio G1 has speakers that are placed at the bottom and it uses the brand Bang & Olufsen speakeers . The quality of this brand is very good and the sounds are quite loud. Included with these branded speakers is a software that the user may use to modify music like jazz or rock. The keyboard is just wonderful to use, it gives anyone a 1.05 mm of travel. It gives a quick feedback and you don’t need to use a lot of force. It has a backlight that is brighter whether you use the low or bright settings.
   The EliteBooK Folio G1 does not have many ports but it has more options when compared to other competitive laptops. It has a single 3.5 mm audio jack. This laptop has two USB Type C Thunderbolt and it can be used for charging and the user can use it to connect to multiple monitors . This is quite useful for transferring data at fast speeds. The USB 3.1 can reach speeds up to 10 GBps.  The webcam is just as good as most of it’s competitors. It isn’t one of the strong points of this laptop.  The Intel m7 – 6y75, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSd is strong enough to do multitasking work. Whether you are playing a video and doing your own productivity work the laptop works wonderfully. It has an Intel HD graphics processor and this quite good for watching movies and editing photos. Never use this for gaming purposes The HP EliteBook Folio G1 that uses the nontouch display l can give you a battery life of 7 hours. This includes surfing  on your wifi. The 4 k display has a battery life of just 4 hours.

    By using a lower Core M processor  the EiteBook Folio G1 processor does not need a fan for cooling . The outside part of the laptop stays cool even if it does not have a fan to blow the hot air out. It comes with a Windows 10 software . The EiiteBook Folio G1 starts $999. With that price, you can acquire a non touch display m5 – 6y54 CPU 8GB RAM and a 128 GB SSD . The would be buyer can configure things by  opting for Core M5 or M7 CPU, different storage capacities, screen options which includes the 1080p nontouch, 1080p touch and 4k touch panels. Buyers can choose an NVMe-PCle SSD , this is three times faster than standard SATA units but they cannot have more than 8GB Ram.  Configuring will make the standard price go higher. For example the Core m7-6Y7% CPU, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD and Windows 10 will cost $ 1,430. Using the 4k display with this configuration will cost $1,620. Just remember this the battery of a 1080p gives you 7 hours. The battery life of the 4k gives you just 4 hours. It’s still a good laptop to have because of it’s performance,  face log in, good typing  keyboard and it’s great looking design.
