New reviews this month:
It’s been a busy month in the TabTimes labs with several products being examined and tested before their reviews are published.
September saw Lenovo unveil the unique dual-screen YogaBook running either Android or Windows, and the Windows version paid us a visit last month. Is a touch screen capacitive keyboard really an alternative to good old fashioned keys and is this a sign of things to come for the 2-in-1 form factor? Find out in our Lenovo YogaBook review and then head over to Android Authority to check out our hands on with the Lenovo YogaBook running Android!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a Windows tablet from Samsung but the Korean OEM’s Galaxy TabPro S is a 2-in-1 we’ve been looking forward to for some months now. Announced at the beginning of the year, it’s taken a while for it to reach the market but last month, our Tablets Editor Jonathan Feist took it for a spin. Does it challenge Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4? Find out in our Samsung Galaxy TabPro S review!
In the news: new Macbook Pros and Microsoft Surface Studio!
After months of rumours, Apple finally unveiled its new Macbook Pros last week, bringing the first major refresh of the range for four years. The new Macbook Pros bring a design that’s somewhere in the middle and gone are the plethora of ports, with USB-C now the standard for peripherals. Find out more about the new Macbook Pros and the new Macbook Pro Touch Bar!
While Apple was focusing on notebooks, Microsoft was focusing on its Surface range. No, not a new Surface Pro but the Surface Studio, which is the company’s first all-in-one running Windows 10. Sporting an Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB of RAM, a 2TB hybrid storage drive and a GeForce GTX 980m graphics chip, the Surface Studio has a 28-inch PixelSense display. Find out more about the Surface Studio!
