Named by ASUS as “the laptop of tomorrow”, the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo Ux581 is a notable mobile workstation. Not necessarily because of its specs alone, but also thanks to its iconic design. You can either love it, or hate it. There’s no middle ground. Personally, I think this layout (keyboard on bottom, two screens on top) works well, but only in the context of a workstation, where you’re more than likely to work with either a mouse or a stylus.
Gigabyte, the Taiwanese computer manufacturer, has recently rolled out another model of their Aero series. Aided by Microsoft’s very own artificial intelligence technology, “Azure AI”, the Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic-SA-U73ADW is a laptop that’s useful for working professionals, casual gamers and students as well. It comes with decent features, great specs, but also suffers from one or two drawbacks.
The all-new Samsung Notebook 7 Force (NP760XBE-X01US) is a 15.6-inch laptop that’s in direct competition with some of the industry’s most acclaimed giants. It features an understated and minimalist design, with an almost monochrome color palette. While both looks and hardware components will definitely impress people, value for money will not. I’ll explain in detail below.
ASUS have recently refreshed their ZenBook line-up with new models, among which is the powerful, yet sleek ASUS ZenBook 15 UX534FT-DB77. In my opinion, a laptop which features a 15.6-inch screen, runs fast enough for most users, and can also be carried around with ease is the perfect solution for both students and traveling professionals alike.
Samsung have just released a new breed of lightweight notebooks. The 7 series comes in multiple size and hardware options. This particular model I’ll be reviewing today is the 13.3 inch flagship, the Samsung Notebook 7 NP730XBE-K02US. It’s the most powerful and future-proof out of their 13-inch lineup, and I consider it to be the one to go for if you’re after a a thin, ultra portable and stylish laptop.
