The developers introduced two types of AirJet chips:

  • AirJet Mini is designed for fanless, thin and light laptops
  • AirJet Pro chip designed for larger laptops and portable gaming systems with more processing power

At CES 2023, the AirJet solution was showcased in a modified Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Pro laptop equipped with three AirJet Minis that take up less space than fans and are quieter.

The AirJet chip is designed to solve the cooling problem that limits CPU performance in today’s laptops. This is a so-called “solid-state cooling solution” that completely abandons the traditional fan-assisted cooling method.

Inside the AirJet are tiny membranes that vibrate at ultrasonic frequencies, and these membranes create a powerful airflow that enters the AirJet through the top vent and removes heat from a separate vent.

Currently, the company has enlisted the support of Qualcomm and Intel. The latter plans to use AirJet in future Evo laptops.

In general, Acer Legendary Edge has been sold in China since last year, but in the version for Japan it has a different processor – instead of the “Chinese” Ryzen 7 6800U, Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U is installed. Otherwise, there are no changes in the hardware platform: the laptop is endowed with 16 GB of LPDDR5-6400 RAM and a 512 GB PCIe 4.0 SSD. Moreover, there are two slots for SSD in the laptop.

Very expensive The top version of the flagship laptop Samsung

On February 1, a large Samsung Unpacked event will take place, within which the premiere of both the new flagship phones of the Galaxy S23 series and the new Galaxy Book3 series laptops is expected. At the disposal of an insider known on Twitter under the nickname SnoopyTech, there were data on the cost of Galaxy Book3, Galaxy Book3 360, Galaxy Book3 Pro, Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 and Galaxy Book3 Ultra in Europe.

Galaxy Book3 Ultra

The most interesting thing is the cost of the flagship model Galaxy Book3 Ultra. As you can see, the laptop will not be cheap. For a version with a Core i9-13900H processor, GeForce RTX 4070, an AMOLED 3K screen, 32 GB of RAM and 1 TB of flash memory, they will ask for almost 4000 euros! Judging by the announcements at CES 2023 in early January, many gaming laptops with GeForce RTX 4080 graphics will be more affordable. But the Galaxy Book3 Ultra is, of course, not about pure performance, but about maximum performance in the most compact device.

As for the simpler version of the Galaxy Book3 Ultra, there will be a Core i7-13700H and GeForce RTX 4050. Well, in the base one, apparently, there will be the same Core i7-13700H, but without discrete graphics.

We already wrote about the characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Pro: these laptops (in two formats – with screens with a diagonal of 14 and 16 inches) will be equipped with a Core i5-1340P and Core i7-1360P CPU, and dGPU is not provided for them.

Earlier, SnoopyTech published high-quality renderings of the Asus Zenfone 9 and Xiaomi 12T Pro before their official premiere.

As you can see, the differences between the two MacBook Pros on early platforms are minimal, ranging from large parts to the location of various chips on motherboards.

iFixit followed Apple’s disassembly guide, which is 160 pages long. The process is very time consuming, but there is nothing new in relation to the previous model. The score for maintainability is also low: 5 points.
