Review: ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC – Ryzen-based laptop

The ASUS ROG Strix GL702ZC is one of the first AMD Ryzen based laptop – and not just any ordinary laptop, it’s a gaming laptop to boot. The catch: The CPU isn’t a mobile-variant Ryzen, instead it’s a meant-for-desktop Ryzen 7 1700. I was definitely curious as to how it performed. It’s been years since AMD had been able to compete head to head with Intel, and even more so from the laptop perspective.

Review: ASUS B9440

The ASUS B9440 is a thin and sleek laptop that’s designed for business, but won’t look out of place for the design-conscious.

The AsusPro B9440 is a strong advocate of the ultrabook trend, with a slim frame, and tiny bezels on the display, allowing it to cramp a 14” screen into a 13.3” laptop body. Business users no longer need to forego style.

Review: Chuwi Hi10Pro

The Chuwi Hi10Pro is a dual boot Windows 10 / Android tablet that has a metallic keyboard dock to convert it to a standard clamshell laptop.

I bought the Chuwi Hi10Pro last year when it was on sale at Gearbest. It was selling for US$169 for the tablet plus keyboard dock. I also used Swagbucks for an additional 4250 SB which should be valued at around US$50 via Amazon gift cards. The issue is that I can’t seem to pass the US only verification as it requires a US number (non-voip). Bummer. I managed to get around it recently through the use of a US SIM. So how did this US$120 tablet / laptop fare?
