This Surface laptop concept would force you to ditch your Macbook

We don’t post too many concepts these days, in part because there is no point in posting Windows Phone concept designs anymore and because we did not think there is much you can do to make a laptop more exciting.

Industrial designer Emad Rahimi has however proven us wrong on the second point with his Surface Vision concept design, which can be seen in full above. He envisions a 7 mm flexible device which is all screen, with virtual control surfaces and no buttons or physical keys.

Lenovo’s Surface competitor has Intel’s new quad-core processors, LTE, and a 3D camera

Lenovo is making its Surface competitor a lot better this year. After slow iterating the Miix tablet from its Core M roots, the new Miix 520 will include Intel’s 8th generation quad-core i7 processor. It’s an addition that pushes its CPU performance past Microsoft’s new Surface Pro, alongside 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, and a 12.2-inch 1920 x 1200 display. Lenovo also offers a USB-C port, the company’s own active pen support, and an optional 3D camera for capturing images.

Microsoft Bet on Workplace PCs is Slowly Paying Off

“Since jumping into the hardware market with its Surface line, Microsoft has had success making inroads into the tablet and 2-in-1 market,” Peter Tsai, senior technology analyst at Spiceworks, told eWEEK. “Many IT pros praised the hardware’s sleek design, powerful specs in a highly-portable package, and ability to run Windows, which allows employees to be productive while giving IT departments management flexibility.”

The Surface Pro, for example, offers corporate IT buyers a blend of premium packaging and powerful processors. Add long-lasting battery life to the equation and business travelers can legitimately get work done on a cross-country or trans-Atlantic flight.

How to set up your Surface Pen

After using the new Surface Pen for the last week, I agree with Microsoft that this pen is the “fastest on the planet.” The new Surface Pen responsiveness and speed make it a dream to use. I use the Surface Pen to take notes when I am in meetings in OneNote, and use it when I color using my favorite Windows 10 coloring app, Zen: Coloring Book for Adults. I am by no means an artist, but when I use the new Surface Pen, I feel like one.
