Noteworthy Mobile Computing Solutions 2013


1. LENOVO IDEAPAD Z400 (Touch Screen Monitor)

Comment: CPU is for daily, non-intensive applications like web browsing, watching movies, word processing, Microsoft office, etc. Could be buying this type of laptop for my mum for such uses as above. Cheap, good enough, but require a backpack for lugging around without discomfort because of it slightly heavier weight.

2. Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 (Convertible Tablet Laptop)

Comment: Made for easy usage while on the go. Multitudes of usage method e.g. tent, stand, tablet, & laptop modes. As with other similar designs & brands, this kind of mobile computer that utilizes solid-state-drive hard disk (SSD) is still overpriced.

3. Asus TAICHI (Convertible Tablet Laptop)

Comment: This mobile computer looks to be awe inspiring for the user and on-viewers. There are two monitors on this device, one for functioning as a normal laptop, and another for use as a tablet device. Seems quite the unnecessarily complicated device to use, but very stylish functionality nonetheless.

Lightweight, looks nice yet crazy, expensive, potential expensive maintenance issues with two monitors may make this device an unworthy investment. Also uses non-removable 4GB memory, hardly enough for intensive computer use, but OK for light use like Microsoft Office, watching movies, Web browsing, and the likes but you can do all this and more with a cheaper, memory upgradeable, and just as luxurious Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13.
