Cheap laptops are different, but the $240 JioBook is different than most.
For example, the heart here is not an Intel or AMD processor at all. Qualcomm’s solution is used here, but even in this case, the choice is still extraordinary, since this is Snapdragon 665. Yes, a regular smartphone single-chip system, and not some specialized one that Qualcomm has in its range.
Apparently, the reason is that the laptop is running Android. The company itself indicates JioOS as OS, but this is just a shell. Accordingly, any SoC would be suitable for such a mobile PC.
The Snapdragon 665 is manufactured on an 11nm process and has a 4G modem, but at the moment this platform should be very affordable, which could play a role in the choice of the company.
The laptop also includes 2 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of eMMC flash memory and an 11.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.
The source says that so far the laptop has only appeared on the government e-commerce platform, and even there it is indicated that only 10 laptops are available in the warehouse, but these are already details. So far, it is only unclear whether such a PC will be available to everyone.
But the problem with the butterfly keyboard will definitely not happen again. Apple is working on a folding MacBook with a flexible screen
Apple has launched a project to develop a 20.25-inch foldable mobile device. Probably, we are talking about a folding MacBook.
Interestingly, the project allegedly does not have a specific plan for commercialization, and Apple took up development in order to keep up with the market. At the same time, there is a forecast according to which a similar product can enter the market in 2027.
When unfolded, the screen diagonal, as already mentioned, will be 20.25 inches, and when folded it will be 15.3 inches. At the same time, to implement the Apple project, you need to use OLED screens. Resource The Elec says that to begin with, the company should transfer the rest of the MacBook and iPad to such panels, although it is not very clear why different products cannot have different types of panels. However, we have heard more than once about the company’s plans to release iPad Pro with OLED screens. As for the MacBook, the source says that Apple plans to release such models with OLED screens in 2025.
Also recall that earlier on the Web there were rumors that Apple is working on a foldable tablet. It may come out before a foldable laptop.
Alienware to release 18-inch gaming laptop for the first time since 2015
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is scheduled to take place next month in Las Vegas, January 5-8. Alienware has confirmed the reveal of a new gaming laptop at the event.
Alienware Short Video Teaserposted on Twitter confirms a key feature of his upcoming proposal. The device boasts a large 18-inch display. It will be Alienware’s first 18-inch gaming laptop since 2015, when a Dell subsidiary announced a limited edition dual-GPU edition. The brand then focused on 14-inch and 17-inch models. The tweet reads: “Signs around you, something big is coming soon.”
Presumably, the device will receive a 4K resolution display with a high refresh rate, modern processors and graphics cards, as well as an improved cooling system.
Clearly, Alienware’s 18-inch gaming laptop will fall into the premium price range.
