HP Stream 11 Pro G2 laptop is now only $179.99. Is it good for gaming? (Intel Celeron, 4GB RAM, HD Graphics, 9 hour battery life)
Who says that cheap Windows 10 laptops are just a myth and impossible to find on the market? Well, we recently found 2 pretty awesome Windows 10 laptops at low costs, they are from ASUS and HP. And today, we found another one. It's from HP once again called HP Stream 11 Pro G2 laptop and it's only $179.99. Can you believe it?

Yup, that's right, today you can grab this HP Stream 11 Pro G2 laptop for just $179.99 on Amazon. For a Windows 10 notebook. this is definitely really cheap. But despite being a low-cost laptop, HP Stream 11 Pro G2 still looks impressive on paper. In fact, with the specs that it comes with, we are more than sure that you can throw some heavy stuff on this machine.

HP Stream 11 Pro G2 laptop is now only $179.99. Is it good for gaming? (Intel Celeron, 4GB RAM, HD Graphics, 9 hour battery life)
HP Stream 11 Pro G2 comes with an 11.6-inch screen with the resolution of 1366x768 pixels, which is higher than the standard 720p resolution (1280x720 pixels). But that's not the only thing that is so great on this affordable laptop. There's more.

On the sector of performance, HP trusts Intel Celeron dual-core N3050 processor, accompanied with Intel HD Integrated Graphics to handle the whole graphical tasks thrown on this machine. Meanwhile, 4GB DDR3 RAM is also provided to ensure smooth experience to users, especially when opening many apps or multiple tabs at once on Firefox.

HP Stream 11 Pro G2 is running on Windows 10 Professional. So this laptop is definitely suitable for professional-career people who work at the office. And we believe its performance is more than adequate to handle some productive tasks without any problem.

The biggest downside found on this notebook is no other than its built-in storage. So HP Stream 11 Pro G2 only provides you 32GB/64GB SSD. This is probably not such a deal breaker for some users, but for media consumptive people, this laptop can leave a lot to be desired.

The good thing is, it's still expandable through microSD card slot. So hopefully, you can still have an extra capacity of storage for your favorite media stuff like movies, music, photos or games.

But it's worth mentioning that Windows 10 operating system usually consumes around 4 to 5GB from internal SSD, which means you'll only get around 27GB (for 32GB SSD variant) or 59GB (for 64GB variant) of free available internal built-in storage.

HP claims that this laptop is capable to last for up to 9.5 hours of battery life on one charge, which is considered as 'great' given that it's running on heavy performing Windows 10 OS. So this laptop can be a great reliable machine if you are using it on-the-go outside your house.

How does it perform to handle PC games?

For a cheap laptop, HP Stream 11 Pro G2 actually doesn't disappoint when it comes to specs. It's got a dual-core Intel Celeron processor, Intel HD Graphics and 4GB of RAM. And this looks pretty good for a cheap notebook.

With this kind of specs, we believe this laptop has what it takes to run some old PC games like GTA Vice CIty, GTA San Andreas or Prince of Persia Two Thrones without any problem.

Unfortunately, if you're looking for a gaming laptop and you also happen to be a heavy gamer, we totally don't recommend this laptop because HP Stream 11 Pro G2 is definitely not made for heavy gaming, even though it's got 4GB of RAM.

But if you only want a reliable laptop to accommodate your basic productive tasks like typing, editing PowerPoint and other Office software, HP Stream 11 Pro G2 can be one hell of a great purchase for you.

6 Top Features on Android O: Will your tablet get upgraded to this latest and greatest?
So recently, the developer preview for Android O has been officially released by Google for all developers out there who want to take a lot at how the new version of Android OS works and looks like. However, if you're just some regular guy, you can also try it out on your own tablet as long as your device is well-equipped in specs and you're also familiar with flashing Android software.

So what's new in Android O?

This is definitely the 1 million dollar question that many Android users are really eager to know.

What are the new features that people are about to enjoy on their tablets when they get upgraded to Android O?

Well, lucky for you! Today, we have managed to compile some of the new features as well as new improvements that you'll find on Android O. If you're curious to know more, here they are, 6 top new features on Android O.

#1 Cool Animation Effect on Notification Panel

There are some new cool things that users will get to enjoy on this new Android version. One of them is the cool animation effect on top of notification panel.

So on Android O, all of your notifications like emails, twitter mentions or text messages will be shown as tiny app icons on top of the screen (alongside battery level, signal bar and clock).

The coolest thing is, when you try to scroll down, all these tiny app icons will move down to the notification panel and then disappear one-by-one as you see the actual messages.

We know that this may not be such a huge new feature like dual-screen mode on Nougat, but it's actually still a great addition for Android O. 

#2 Snooze Annoying Notification for a Few Minutes

The other small improvement found on Android O is the ability to snooze your notifications for a few minutes.

So for example, if you usually receive annoying notifications everytime you get a new Instagram or Twitter follower, you can snooze them for a few minutes or permanently.

You can do that by sliding the notification to the right (but don't slide it to the full direction because it will remove the notification). After that, there are 2 icons on the left (snooze and setting), tap the first one and then select the duration options: 1 minutes, 30 minutes, etc.

#3. Google Maps and Phone app icons alongside "Copy", "Cut" and "Select All

Now on Android O, everytime you select the text that include phone number or home address, not only are you able to "Copy", "Cut" or "Select All", there is also a new option here - Phone app or Google Maps.

So for example, if your friend sends you a text message that has address in it, and then you try to highlight the address, there will be a new app icon of Google Maps shown there, beside "Copy", "Cut" and "Select All".

It goes the same if you select phone number, you will also be given the choice to go to Phone app if you want to save or call the number.

#4. Change the position of Main Navigation Buttons

Usually, on vast majority of Android devices, on the bottom of the screen, there are 3 options of buttons - "Back", "Home" and "Recent Apps". However, if your tablet get upgraded to Android O, now you'll be able to change the position of these 3 buttons.

Android O feature to change navigation buttons
So for example, if you have small hands and you want to move these 3 buttons to be positioned more on the left area, you can go to "System UI Tuner" > Navigation Bar > Layout and then choose the option "Left-leaning". By doing so, you'll be able to reach these buttons easily with your left hand.

But there are also 2 other options that you'll be able to pick besides "Left-leaning". The first one is: "Right-leaning". And the second choice is "Compact", which is to position the buttons in the middle area.

#5 Add a New Extra Button on Main Navigation Key

Android O feature to add an extra button on Navigation key
Besides the 3 main navigation buttons (Back, Home and Recent Apps), on Android O, you can also add 2 extra buttons on n the left and right sides. For example, if you want to add a "clipboard" button on the left, you can simply go to System UI Tuner > Navigation Bar > Extra Left Button Type > and choose "Clipboard".

#6. Change the Shortcut Apps on LOCKSCREEN

System UI Tunner - Lockscreen - left Shortcut/Right Shortcut

The last but not least, there is also one awesome feature that you'll get to enjoy on Android O. And that is the ability to change the shortcut apps on the LOCKSCREEN.

So for example, on the lockscreen, there are 2 standard shortcut apps on the left and right edge - Phone app and Camera app on the right side.

The good news is, now on Android O, you'll be able to change these 2 shortcuts with any apps that you have installed on your tablet, even games.

This is definitely a welcome addition especially for everyone who tweets a lot on Twitter or posts photos on Instagram. They can instantly go these apps right away on the lockscreen.

Conclusion

Well, there you go guys, 6 new awesome features that you're about to enjoy once your tablet gets upgraded to Android O. We know that not many devices are eligible for Android O upgrade, but if you happen to own a new-gen and well-spec'd tablet, then you're definitely one of the luckiest users out there!

Looking for a cheap Android Nougat tablet? This Alcatel A30 can be a pretty decent choice for you
Hey, remember the Alcatel's tablet that we showed you like a couple of weeks ago? You know, the one called Alcatel Plus 12? Well, apparently that's not the only tablet that Alcatel wants to introduce this year. Two days ago, this company just made another slate official. This one is Alcatel A30 Tablet. The coolest thing is, it will hit the low-end market soon in the price range around $120. 

Earlier, Alcatel actually just launched a new Android smartphone - Alcatel A30 phone. Interestingly, this phone shares the same exact specs with Alcatel A30 Tablet. And this phone will also go on sale in low-end market, priced at only $99. So basically, Alcatel A30 tablet is the giant version of the phone.

Anyway, as a cheap tablet, of course you cannot expect anything spectacular especially from its specs. But despite being a low-cost device, Alcatel A30 actually can be a pretty decent purchase considering its cheap price point. In fact, we believe this Alcatel's tablet is totally worth checking out.

Looking for a cheap Android Nougat tablet? This Alcatel A30 can be a pretty decent choice for you
It's got an 8-inch display with the screen resolution of 800x1200 pixels. There's also Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 running the entire show here, paired with 2GB of RAM to provide smooth lag-free performance. Meanwhile, Adreno 304 GPU will handle all the graphical tasks thrown on this machine.

Alcatel A30 Tablet will be running on Android Nougat OS out of the box, which is awesome because you'll get to enjoy some new great features like dual split-screen mode, fast installation process, instant apps and a lot more. This Android version is also much faster and smoother, plus more efficient with power consumption.

If you're into photography, you're in luck here as this tablet will come with 5MP cameras on the back and front. Meanwhile, the internal storage equipped on this tablet is 16GB. But if that's not enough, you can bump it up through its microSD card slot.

Alcatel A30 Tablet will also feature an IR Blaster, which means you can use it as a remote control for your TV and many other electronic hardware in your living room. Another thing that makes this tablet worth considering is its 4G LTE, providing you a fast internet connectivity for downloading and streaming YouTube videos.

How does it perform for playing games?

Playing heavy 3D games on this tablet is probably not such an ideal thing to do because it's only powered by Adreno 304 GPU, which is a low end GPU and not really adequate to handle games like Modern Combat 5 or GTA San Andreas, especially in full graphics.

However, if you're not a heavy gamer and you only want a cheap Android-Nougat tablet for basic needs like watching movies, browsing the web, reading books, downloading files or playing some casual games, we totally recommend this tablet to you.

It's got an 8-inch display with HD resolution, a pretty adequate performance (thanks to Snapdragon 210, Adreno 304 and 2GB of RAM), 5MP cameras front and back, awesome features on Android Nougat OS, IR blaster and we believe it's also capable to deliver pretty solid battery life.

Should I buy it?

Well, for a cheap tablet in the price range around $120, Alcatel A30 is definitely a pretty good choice here.

But you might ask why, right?

Okay, first of all, we love Android devices from Alcatel, whether it's a smartphone or tablet. They may be affordable to buy, but Alcatel never compromises the quality of its products. The are pretty amazing. 

We've actually had some experiences with Alcatel smartphones, Alcatel Flash Plus and Flash 2, and to tell you the truth, we love them both.

Well, if you're interested of buying this tablet, Alcatel A30 will hit the shelves next month, on May 26. Unfortunately, it's very likely that this one will be available exclusively only on T-Mobile. So if you're living in the country where T-Mobile is nowhere around, don't get your hopes up. You probably won't be able to find this tablet in your country.

Gameloft's Zombie Anarchy is an addictive game that will make you want to play it like forever
Hey guys, have you ever tried the new game from Gameloft called Zombie Anarchy? Well, if you haven't, you've gotta try it. We have one word for this game - AWESOME! Yeah, that's right. Zombie Anarchy is one awesome zombie game.

We've actually been playing with this game for a while now (a few weeks to be exact) and to tell you the truth, Zombie Anarchy is nothing like other zombie games you've ever played in your entire life.

It's really addictive and damn! it will get you hooked all day on your tablet.

Zombie Anarchy is a mix between zombie shooting, strategy, survival, co-op and even role playing games. This game has all of these elements. 

However, Zombie Anarchy puts more focus here on the strategy, simulation, zombie survival elements, and gives less focus on the storyline.

Zombie Anarchy is now available on Google Play Store. And you can download it for completely free. It's actually been available since like a couple of weeks ago. 

So if you're really curious to see how this game works and looks like, we recommend you to go straight to Google Play Store right now because Zombie Anarchy is a really awesome game you don't wanna miss.

Gameplay

The gameplay of Zombie Anarchy
Unlike other zombie games on Google Play Store or App Store - Zombie Anarchy is nothing like them. As mentioned above, it's a combination between regular zombie-shooting games, survival, strategy, co-op and RPGs. Interestingly, Gameloft takes a different approach when developing this game.

If other zombie games are mostly using first person perspective (such as Dead Trigger or Unkilled), Zombie Anarchy interestingly is made in overview perspective, similar just like strategy games such as The Settlers or Age of Empire.

How to Play it?

The Maps in Zombie Anarchy: Survival Games
For some people, Zombie Anarchy probably can be difficult to understand. But it's actually really simple to play. 

So you'll be given the map. On this map, there are many locations indicated in blue and red colors.

Blue is where you'll find zombies, while the red one is filled with human (enemies).

So basically, you will attack from one place to another place on the map and then kill all the zombies or human that stand in your way. But in order to complete each mission and win the battle, you also have to destroy all the buildings in that place.

The Homebase
Another interesting element in Zombie Anarchy is definitely the 'Homebase'. This is the strategy element we've been talking about.

So in this game, you'll be given one homebase where you can build towers, headquarter, gas depot and many other buildings. All of your playable characters or 'heroes' will live in this homebase.

However, in order to be able to construct these buildings, you must first have these 3 main elements: "Food", "Gas" and "Salvage". For example, if you want to build a tower, you're gonna need like 500 "Salvage" and 200 "Food".

All of these 3 important elements can be collected by destroying enemies' buildings in any locations on the map.

The Characters

Nathalie The playable characters in Zombie Anarchy
Speaking about the characters, there are 12 playable heroes in this game. But in the beginning, you can only play the guy named 'Kane' who uses axe as his weapon.

As you finish mission by mission, you'll then be able to unlock the next characters and so on.

From all these 12 characters, at this time, our favorites are Nathalie, Igor and Lydia. These 3 characters can be the perfect team to win the fights against zombies or human. We actually always manage to win a lot of battles using these 3 characters, compared to other characters.

Nathalie has a rifle at her disposal. Meanwhile, Igor equips himself with a gun. Lastly, Lydia comes with a shotgun in her arms.

Vincent The playable characters in Zombie Anarchy
We also love the character named "Vincent". He may only use 2 swords on his hands. But man! He can totally destroy every building in just a few seconds. Amazing! Unfortunately, he's really weak in defense. So you better bring Igor and Lydia with him and protect Vincent with armors.

The coolest thing is, all of these characters have their own unique "Super Power". But you'll be able to activate this super power only after you destroy each building during the fight.

Nathalie is blessed with "Speed", Lydia has "Survival" (armor), while Igor comes with "Hazmat Suit" super powers.

Our tip for you - always bring Nathalie, Lydia and Igor in every fight against zombies or human!

So everytime you destroy each building, use Lydia's super power (armor) to protect all the crews. And then, when you manage to destroy other building, use Igor's super power to give more extra health bar (armor). 

Meanwhile, the next building you destroy, use Nathalie's super power of "Speed" to make your team much faster in killing enemies and destroying buildings.

Anyway, besides these 3 characters, there are also other heroes you can play, from Kane (Fire Molotov super power), Mac (Blitz), old-man Cecil (Gunslinger), June (Headshot/Sniper) and many other more.

The mini games

Bonus mini game in Zombie Anarchy
Another thing that we really love from Zombie Anarchy is definitely its mini game called zombie hunt. So in this mini game, you'll be able to collect extra weapons or equipments that you can bring into the battle. There are baits like blood or firecrackers, bombs, health pack and even "good" zombie army that can come in handy and help you during the fight.

However, in order to be able to play this mini game, there are 2 options that you can pick here - by spending "red diamonds" or the second choice, by watching online advertising videos.

Bonus mini game in Zombie Anarchy
The ads usually will take around 20 to 30 seconds of your time before the mini game starts. After that, you will be given 3 bullets to shoot at a couple of zombies. There are many great goodies that you can win here in this mini game. So make every bullet count!

Graphics

One of the best things about Zombie Anarchy is definitely its graphics.

This game may be a strategy game using overview perspective from far distance, but impressively, the graphics in Zombie Anarchy look really amazing. Every character, even zombies, are well-created by Gameloft with great details, especially when you zoom in the screen.

Storyline

To be honest, there is not much to say about the storyline of this game. So just like any other zombie survival games out there, Zombie Anarchy basically uses similar type of storyline. It's about people who are trying to survive and they meet other survivors along the way and create the homebase.

Should I download it?

Yes, absolutely yes! This game is definitely a MUST-HAVE, especially if you are a huge fan of zombie survival games, strategy games, RPGs or even simulations.

It's really awesome to play and it can be really addictive as well. Many types of gamers will totally love this game.

You can download Zombie Anarchy for free on Google Play Store. However, it's using in-app purchasing system. So if you want to get more equipments like bombs, health packs and get more "diamonds", you can splash your real cash inside this game.

The coolest thing is, it's actually not necessary to spend your money in order to finish this game. There are many many ways to collect diamonds.

You can clear your homebase from zombies, raid other players' locations, raid zombie's locations, collect a certain amount of items and many more. Every achievement will reward you red diamonds.

Microsoft Surface Laptop is too expensive? These $299 HP ProBook x360 and Acer TravelMate Spin B1 laptops can be decent options for you
The new Surface Laptop is definitely one hell of a great computing device. Microsoft claims that it's thinner, lighter and 50% much faster than Apple Macbook Pro and Air. However, it's really expensive to buy, pricing starts at $1000. Thankfully, HP and Acer today also announced the cheaper options for Microsoft's new laptop. They are HP ProBook x360 Education Edition and Acer TravelMate Spin B1 Convertible. These two Windows 10S laptops will go on sale for $299.

Acer and HP are actually 2 of Microsoft's hardware partners that will also be making Windows 10 S laptops in the coming days or weeks. Meanwhile, other manufacturers from ASUS, DELL, Samsung, Toshiba and Fujitsu will join forces soon.

Priced at only $299, two Windows 10 laptops from HP and Acer are pretty impressive devices. In fact, they can actually make great alternatives for the new Surface laptop.

Let's start with HP ProBook x360 Education Edition

Microsoft Surface Laptop is too expensive? These $299 HP ProBook x360 and Acer TravelMate Spin B1 laptops can be decent options for you
First of all, HP ProBook x360 Education Edition is a touchscreen laptop. But what makes it really special is, it features a 360-degree hinge which allows users to use it in 4 different modes - from normal laptop, tablet, stand and tent.

So basically, not only can you use it as normal regular laptop on the table, but this HP's laptop also allows you to rotate the screen in full 360 degrees and turn it into a full tablet. Isn't that awesome, huh?

Microsoft Surface Laptop is too expensive? These $299 HP ProBook x360 and Acer TravelMate Spin B1 laptops can be decent options for you
HP ProBook x360 comes with an 11.6-inch display with the resolution 1366x768 pixels. There's also HP's stylus thrown in the package.

And then in performance, an Intel Celeron N3350 processor and Intel HD Graphics 500 will run the entire show here, coupled with 4gigs of RAM in memory department. There's also 64GB built-in storage which is expandable through SD card slot.

It will run on Windows 10S out of the box. For your information, this is Microsoft's new cloud-based OS, aimed at Google's popular Chrome OS. It's actually the more secure version of the regular Windows 10. It's going to be more efficient with battery usage as well.

But on Windows 10S, users are only allowed to install apps straightly from Windows Store. So 3rd party apps are totally blocked here. Thankfully, users can still run 3rd party apps on this laptop but they need to upgrade it first from Windows 10S to Windows 10 Pro OS.

Acer TravelMate Spin B1 Convertible

That's the HP ProBook x360 Education Edition. What about Acer TravelMate Spin B1 Convertible?

Well, Acer TravelMate Spin B1 Convertible is actually not any different than HP's laptop. So it's also a touchscreen laptop. And it also features a full 360-degree hinge which gives users more flexibility in using this laptop.

Microsoft Surface Laptop is too expensive? These $299 HP ProBook x360 and Acer TravelMate Spin B1 laptops can be decent options for you
So yes, you can use it as a normal regular laptop on the table. But if you want to watch movies or browse the web more conveniently, you can rotate the screen up to full 360 degrees to enter the kickstand mode, tent mode or tablet mode.

Acer TravelMate Spin B1 is packing an 11.6-inch 1080p display. Intel Celeron processor will handle the performance, accompanied with 4GB of RAM to ensure its smooth lag-free experience. The storage available here is 64GB, but we believe it's expandable through its SD card reader.

Microsoft's hardware partners expected to release the cheaper Windows 10 S laptops. Pricing starts at only $189
So today, Microsoft just introduced its new offering in education market. It is the new Surface laptop that is made for students and teachers. It will ship with the new Windows 10S out of the box. However, this Microsoft's new laptop is one hell of an expensive laptop, pricing starts at $1000. Thankfully, Microsoft's hardware partners will also be making the cheaper alternatives for this new Surface laptop.

So besides unveiling the new Surface laptop, Microsoft also brought great news at its recent education-focused event in New York. 

Microsoft said that its hardware partner will also be offering Windows 10S laptops of their own. They are ASUS, Acer, Fujitsu, DELL, Samsung, HP and Toshiba.

These laptops will be less expensive than Microsoft's pricy $1000 Surface laptop. The price starts at only $189. However, we're not really sure if any of these Windows 10S laptops will be available at the retail stores or they will be exclusive only in education market, such as schools and universities.

But apart from that, it's still great to hear that there will be the some alternatives that are still great but cheaper than Microsoft's Surface laptop.

Anyway, just like Surface, these laptops will also ship with the new Windows 10S out of the box, which is a cloud-based OS dedicated for education market.

Actually, following Microsoft's Surface announcement, Acer and HP just also introduced their own Windows 10S laptops. And the good news is, these laptops will cost only $299.99. Interested?

Apparently, Microsoft's Chromebook killer is the new Surface Laptop. Unveiled today at company's education-focused event
In the past few weeks, we've been hearing some rumors suggesting that Microsoft was gearing up to launch a Chromebook killer this month. And apparently, those rumors were true. Today, at Microsoft's education-focused event in New York, this company finally introduced a new Surface laptop. And yes, it's aimed at no other than Chromebooks.

However, unlike other Chromebooks that mostly are affordable to buy, this Microsoft' new Surface laptop, on the other hand, will be one hell of a pricy high-end laptop. The price starts at $999.99 with specs like Intel Core i5, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD on board.

It will also be the world's first laptop to ship with Windows 10S out of the box - which is the new Cloud-based operating system dedicated for education market.

The good news, if this Surface laptop is too expensive for you, don't you worry my friend. According to Microsoft, there will be many hardware partners from Fujitsu, HP, Acer, Samsung, ASUS and Toshiba that will also be offering Windows 10S laptops in affordable price range, starting at $189

Acer and HP are the first 2 hardware partners that just introduced their new affordable Windows 10S laptops today after Microsoft's announcement. Both will cost only $299.99.

What's so great about Microsoft Surface Laptop?

Apparently, Microsoft's Chromebook killer is the new Surface Laptop. Unveiled today at company's education-focused event
So what's so special about this new Surface laptop? 

What makes this computing device deserve a really expensive $999.99 price tag?

Well, if we're looking at this laptop in the whole aspect, it's very obvious that Surface laptop has all what it takes to be a high-end laptop.

It comes with premium aluminum finish all over the place. It's also thinner, lighter and 50% much faster than even Apple's Macbook Pro and Macbook Air, as claimed by Microsoft.

Apparently, Microsoft's Chromebook killer is the new Surface Laptop. Unveiled today at company's education-focused event
Microsoft Surface laptop features a 13.5-inch display sporting the 1080p resolution. But we believe this is only the base model, which means you can bump up its screen with much sharper resolution. 

The coolest thing is, just like most of new-gen laptops today, this Surface laptop also comes with a touchscreen display. And it also works with Surface Pen, Surface Dial and more.

Speaking about the software, this Surface laptop is running on Microsoft's new cloud-based OS called Windows 10S. It's actually the simplified version of Windows 10 Pro OS, which means it will be more efficient with power consumption.

It's also more secure than the regular version mainly because users are only allowed to install apps straightly from official Windows store. So apps from 3rd party websites are not welcome here. 

But according to Microsoft, users can run 3rd party apps outside Windows Store, but they will be required to upgrade this laptop from Windows 10S to Windows 10 Pro.

Hardware Specs

Apparently, Microsoft's Chromebook killer is the new Surface Laptop. Unveiled today at company's education-focused event
In terms of specs, this new Surface laptop packs a lot of punch in its thin design. It's got an Intel Core i5 processor, 4gigs of RAM and 128GB of SSD. But this is only the base mode, which is the cheapest variant of all.

So if you want to get the one with Intel Core i7 processor, sharper display, bigger RAM and so on, of course the price will dig deeper in your pocket.

Another cool thing about this Surface laptop is, its keyboard uses fabric materials, just like the one used on Surface Pro 4's Limited-edition keyboard.

According to theVerge, the keyboard feels pretty good, the buttons are responsive and it doesn't feel like the Chiclet-style keyboard found on the regular 12-inch Macbook.

Battery Life

Microsoft claims that this Surface laptop is capable to deliver a 14 and a half hour of battery life to users, which is awesome because you can totally use it all day without needing to recharge it during the day.

Ports and Speakers

There are some regular ports equipped on this machine, from regular USB ports, mini display port. Unfortunately, there is NO USB Type-C on this laptop, which is a bummer given that most of today's new-gen laptops already come with this port.

Interestingly, Microsoft decides to place the speakers underneath the laptop, which is on the back of keyboard. So there are no speaker grills whatsoever on the inside of the laptop.

When will it come out?

Apparently, Microsoft's Chromebook killer is the new Surface Laptop. Unveiled today at company's education-focused event
Microsoft Surface Laptop will be available soon on June 15. As mentioned above, the price starts at $999.99 for the base model with Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. So you can expect the price to go up for the one with beefier specs.

This laptop will be available in wide range of colors, from Cobalt, Platinum, Blue, Burgundy and Graphite Gold. So if you're interested of getting this laptop, expect it to hit the shelves this month. But the most importantly, make sure first that you have $999.999 in your pocket.

Get it while it's hot! Apple iPad Pro 9.7 gets its price slashed at Best Buy ($100 off)
If you've been wanting to get an iPad Pro for a very long time, this is probably the best time for you to finally snatch this bad boy. So last month, Apple iPad Pro just celebrated its one-year birthday. The good news is, many retailers are selling this device with more appealing prices. Best Buy is one of them.
