ThundeRobot ST-Pro Cool VR-Ready Laptop Late 2017!

ThundeRobot ST-Pro is a laptop that is VR ready! I bought my ASUS Predator 17x VR ready for around 3500 euro. Super pricy! But super worth it. But now a year later you can get amazing deals for way cheaper. This is both a good looking laptop and powerful. Let’s see what it packs inside.

Some main specs: Gaming Laptop, 15.6” IPS FHD 1920×1080 resolution display, GTX1060, Intel Core i7 7700HQ CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD disk, VR ready, 2.5cm thickness, 6GB of GDDR5 memory and 1280 CUDA cores!

The first good thing to know with ThundeRobot ST-Pro is that the GPU GTX 1060 inside this machine performs better than both GTX 970M and GTX 980M mobile GPUs! 50% boost over GTX 970M and 10% over GTX 980M!

This computer will be great machine for these VR headsets: ThundeRobot VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other high-end headsets. The processor is running on 7th gen kabylack platform with 4 cores, 14nm manufacturing process, 2.8GHz and can be boosted to 3.8GHz.

With a computer like this it’s important to have great power dissipation and this one comes with that for optimal gaming experience. The keyboard is full colour RGB backlight. You can tweak the colours!

The laptop is made in aluminium alloy material with a reinforced metal surface. It also has gone through various things like stringent stamping, anodizing and sand blasting to make it perform better and be durable!

The display has 160 degrees angle of view, 250 nits brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio and 25mm frequency response. Probably won’t be as vibrant as Galaxy S8 or iPhone X display but it’s probably decent for gaming!

The audio experience comes with Sound Blaster X-FI MB5 which has 5.1 stereo sound technology. Called the onkyo speakers. They are available on both left and right side of the laptop.

The I/O interface on ST-Pro can be good to know: three USB 3.1 ports (which is way faster than 3.0!), two Type-C ports, one HDMI port two Mini DisplayPorts, Audio Jack, RJ45, DC and Card reader 6-in-1 for standard cards.

I like how this laptop is slimmer than my fat ASUS Predator laptop. On the other hand my predator is 17 inch. 15 inch that this one has might be a little too small for many people.

GPD Cool Fashion Laptop!

GPD brand I have checked out their portable gaming machine in the past but they also have a mini laptop variant! Let’s take a look at it. It’s called the GPD Pocket. And it’s super small!

Main specs: Windows 10, Intel Atom x7-Z8750 processor quad-core clocked at 1.6GHz, Intel HD graphics, 8GB of RAM, 128GB hard disk memory, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, 7 Inch screen size and 1920×1080 resolution.

First thing you will notice in GPD Pocket is 128GB is a lot and you can pack in a lot of multimedia files on that space! 8GB of RAM also excellent. I would prefer if it ran Windows 7 instead of Windows 10 because of the sloppyness of Microsoft’s latest OS.

The battery inside is a large 7000mAh battery. Battery can last around 5 hours in video play time which I find impressive. That’s almost 3 movies you can watch! This would usually mean massive if it just powered a simple Android phone! But now it’s powering Windows 10! So might not last as long as android would do. Because you run heavier apps with Windows 10 OS.

The back cover is made in nice aluminium material for a premium feel. Comes with speaker and mic. It weight only 0.5kg which is nice for a laptop. Also if you want you could install Ubuntu over here!

It’s great because it can fit inside your pocket. And comes with a full QWERTY keyboard. With an HDMI cable you can connect the gadget to a larger display for doing more serious work!

GPD Pocket does remind me about my MacBook Pro. It’s using a precise all-in-one body made with magnesium and alloy. Which means it looks like amazing craftsmanship! It also comes with really high ppi display over 300.

Ports on the laptop are: USB 3.0, Headset, micro HDMI, Type C! Overall a very impressive fashionable laptop. Perfect for late 2017 usage.

Lenovo’s Gaming Laptop!

Lenovo also has a very cool gaming laptop. I have checked out laptops for gaming from both Acer and ASUS in the past. Another major player on that market is Lenovo! They have an IdeaPad Y700 Touch 15! Model number: 80NW0036US.

It comes with a 15.6″ IPS Display, Intel Core i7 6th Gen 6700HQ clocked at 2.6GHz, NVIDIA GeForce 960M Graphics Card, Dolby Premium Audio with built-in JBL stereo speakers, Optimized Thermal Cooling, Backlit Keyboard, 16GB Memory and 1TB HDD + 128 GB SSD!

IdeaPad Y700 has an aggressive look and reminds me about a lightweight Acer Predator design. From the side it looks like you get two USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB 2.0 port, Micro SD card port, Ethernet port, 1x HDMI port and I think I see a ThunderBolt port as well. Jacks for headphones is of course also available.

The main colours on the laptop is black and white. It really does look slim and the beautiful edgy design makes it look like a true gamer laptop. A business laptop looks more basic. This looks more premium and made for gaming. I really enjoy the design on the speakers it looks really special.

Lenovo also offers you a gaming mouse and gaming headset which features the same edgy design that the laptop have. The PC is also available in different screen sizes. It’s a bit cheaper than Acer and ASUS laptops that I have been talking about in the past. It has a Lenovo logo below the display in the left corner.

I am curious when the day come when we will see edge-to-edge laptops. For some reason it seems to be slower in speed to come out than what we see on phones like iPhone 8 OLED. Lenovo on their Yoga 910 laptop featured 5mm bezels so we are getting closer to a full on bezel-less display! Do you like the IdeaPad Y700?

Want a BIG Laptop? The Most Overkill Laptop Ever!

This laptop here from Acer is totally insane! It’s called the Acer Predator 21 X GX21-71-76ZF21″. It comes with a 21″ 2560×1080 curved display! Apple doesn’t even create 17″ MacBook Pro’s anymore and here Acer comes with 21″!

The specs? Dual GeForce GTX 1080 SLI 16GB GDDR5X, Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7820HK clocked at 2.9GHz, 64GB RAM Memory, 1 TB HDD + 1 TB SSD! It’s a bit sad it didn’t feature 4K resolution display that can be a major downside for a lot of potential buyers.

Some ports Acer Predator 21 X comes with are: 1x Thunderbolt 3 (Supporting full USB 3.1 Type C), 2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI 2.0 and 4x USB 3.0 ports.

The major thing here of course is that this is a hard-core gaming machine with SLI configuration with two graphics cards that are overclocked. Also comes with a 5-fan cooling system to keep your system sharp! Three predator AeroBlade fans being used to keep GPU and CPU cool and quiet.

To get rid of heat it also comes with nine heat pipes. The speaker system is 4 speakers with 2 subwoofers 4.2 Dolby Audio Premium system.

Is this system overkill? Yes it is! But that’s also what makes it fun. That you can truly do anything with this setup! It will last for a long time. And it will be a laptop that everyone will think is cool because of it’s massive size.

Do remember Acer Predator 21 X is truly massive in size! So it won’t be like having a MacBook Pro 13″. This is a laptop you probably won’t be moving around a lot. And I can’t even imagine how massive the laptop case must be for this beast..

Also the pricing… This is not something for the average guy. This will cost too much! You can buy 15 HTC Vive Virtual Reality headsets for the price of one of these machines.

This Porsche Designed Tablet PC Looks Amazing!

This Porsche Design brand has a new cool 2-in-1 Tablet PC available called BOOK ONE. It’s a brand that is focusing on creating beautiful products with functionality and design in mind.

It comes with the specs: Intel 7th Gen Core i7-7500U, Intel HD Graphics 620, 16GB of LPDDR3 SDRAM, Sharp 13.3″ 3K QHD+ IPS screen with resolution of 3200×1800, LED backlight. 512GB SSD, USB 3.1 Type C + and a Pen! I really like how the Pen looks like a real Pen for a more realistic experience. A Touchpad and Microsoft’s Windows 10 Pro.

The pen that comes with BOOK ONE will be cool for people who likes to be creative. Many computers doesn’t come with that. And with phones it’s even worse. Only Samsung with their Note lineup has taken the pen serious. That you can get now with their latest Galaxy Note 8 offering that will be available soon in stores.

This hybrid device takes 2 hours to recharge. It contains two batteries that add up to 70Wh that can make it last up to 14 hours!

It features a VarioHinge that got inspired by the gearbox of a high-end sports car! The material is high-quality stainless steel. And this will add flexibility to quickly switch from high-performance laptop into a high-end tablet. Perfect when you no longer need the keyboard.

And when you feel like gaming or write a lot then you just connect it back and it transforms into a nice notebook.

The ports you get are one USB Type-C 3.1 port, one Intel Thunderbolt port and two USB-A 3.0 ports.

The overall materials used is stainless steel and matte aluminium. Polished edges and lovely silver design really creates a product that looks high-end! It is a bit pricy so not a product for everyone. But good if you need a high-end solution for both tablet and laptop experience in mind.

I will probably not check out this device right now but I am interested to see how Windows 10 Pro tablets perform and how it feels. Especially compared to Android and iPad tablets.

I sort of feel like the Android OS and Apple OS should be a totally different experience on Tablet vs. Phone. Right now it feels you don’t get that much more. Versus the experience on phones. I hope to see improvement on this in the future! What do you think of BOOK ONE, too expensive?
