Portal The Verge, referring to the famous insider Evan Blass (Evan Blass), publishes the first (presumably official) render of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2. The novelty is shown at once in two colors – red-orange and gray.

The Galaxy Chromebook 2 has a swivel screen, which allows you to use your laptop as a tablet. We also see a full-sized keyboard, multiple USB Type-C ports, a 3.5mm jack for wired headphones, a microSD card slot and a webcam. For sure Samsung will add support for the S Pen stylus.

Unfortunately, the technical parameters of the device were not disclosed. But it is obvious that the Galaxy Chromebook 2 will be more powerful than the first version. The official presentation is expected at CES 2021. The parameters, cost and date of the start of sales of the new laptop will also be named there.

An unusual small but very thick laptop with an ortholinear keyboard and Arm platforms. MNT Pocket Reform introduced

An unusual small but very thick laptop with an ortholinear

The era of netbooks is long gone, and there are very few mobile PCs on the market with screens smaller than 10 inches. The new MNT Pocket Reform is one of those.

But in fact, this laptop was not created at all for the sake of compactness, because, despite the small screen, the dimensions here are very far from optimal, and the thickness can terrify those accustomed to modern ultrabooks.

From the photos you can already understand what the device looks like and why compactness is not at the forefront here. Dimensions are equal to 200 x 126 x 45 mm, and the weight is not indicated at all.

In addition to the unusual design, another highlight of the novelty is the ortholinear keyboard. Not everyone is comfortable using these, which should be considered before buying.

Further unusual solutions do not end there. The heart of the novelty is not an Intel or AMD processor at all. It is based on a platform based on SoC NXP i.MX8M Plus with 4 or 8 GB of RAM. The platform is removable, so that it can be replaced with something else. The company itself also offers several other options as options:

  • NXP Layerscape LS1028A
  • Raspberry Pi CM4
  • Pine SOQuartz RK3566
  • FPGA AMD/Xilinx Kintex-7

In addition, a platform from the MNT Reform model can be inserted into the PC.

The seven-inch screen is characterized by Full HD resolution. There are Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0 adapters, a 4G or 5G modem (optional), up to 128 GB of flash memory, an SSD slot, a microSD slot, and an 8000 mAh battery.

The body can be made from anodized aluminum or recycled plastic to choose from. The set of ports includes a pair of USB-C, Industrial Ethernet and micro-HDMI.

Given the platform, it is clear that Windows is out of the question. The PC supports Debian GNU/Linux, Arch, Ubuntu, Void, Plan 9, Genode and OpenBSD.

No pricing details yet, but pre-orders will begin in July.

Apple’s mixed reality headset will be more powerful than many laptops. She will receive SoC Apple M2

Apples mixed reality headset will be more powerful than many

Apple’s mixed reality headset should get the M2 single-chip system. Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman thinks so.

Apple's mixed reality headset will be more powerful than many laptops.  She will receive SoC Apple M2

Earlier it was said that the headset will receive SoC M1, but apparently Apple has changed the configuration. It is also worth remembering that the current leaks speak of two platforms, and the second will be responsible for processing data from the device’s numerous sensors.

The headset will receive M2 with 16 GB of memory, that is, the performance of the device will be higher than that of many laptops on the market. At the same time, various rumors suggest that Apple has previously encountered the problem of overheating of the headset, so such a powerful platform, apparently, is also a minus.

At the moment, the headset is expected to be introduced in early 2023. It is also likely that for the first time Apple will show it at an event in the fall, but the device will enter the market next year.

More than 16 hours of continuous work – this is the autonomy of the new MacBook Pro 13 on M2

More than 16 hours of continuous work this is

Apple laptops, thanks to Apple Silicon processors, stand out for their incredible autonomy. The latest MacBook Pro 13 based on the Apple M2 SoC is no exception.

More than 16 hours of continuous work - this is the autonomy of the new MacBook Pro 13 on M2

The Verge journalist decided to check how long the new MacBook Pro will last in the mode of a full-fledged working system, when there is no goal to squeeze the maximum autonomy out of the PC.

The test started at 20:00. The author launched a browser with a dozen tabs, Spotify and set the brightness to 50%. Later on, the load on the PC increased as additional applications were launched, including Google Docs, After Effects, Instagram, Swift Playgrounds 4 game, PugetBench, Lightroom and so on. It is also worth noting that from 2:13 to 8:15, while the author was sleeping, YouTube was running on the laptop.

As a result, around 12:30 the laptop still turned off. He worked 16 hours and 30 minutes. The load at the same time quite corresponded to some conditionally average. If limited, for example, to the browser and typing, the laptop will probably last even longer.
