Leo's Tip of the Week

Product of the week

Eve V

Eve V is the first ever crowd-developed 2-in-1 laptop/tablet computer. The details were discussed, debated, and decided on by a community of over 1,000 people. It has a Scandinavian design, made of low-friction glass, sand-blasted aluminum, and Alcantara fabric. It's light and strong, with a body that's only 0.89cm thin. It features a 12.3 inch 2880x1920 IGZO LCD display with nearly 6 million pixels. The screen surface is Gorilla Glass with anti-fingerprint and anti-reflection coating, and it has a 2MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP camera on the back.

The Eve V contains the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors and uses a copper heat pipe cooling system to allow it to run without fans and without thermal throttling. It uses an Intel 600p PCIe SSD so it can go from startup to login in under 9 seconds. Logging in is made even faster with a fingerprint reader under the power button. It also has great wireless performance, using the latest 2x2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi antenna. There are 2 far-field microphones on it for eliminating background noise in calls, and a dedicated audio amp to power high-end headphones.

Eve V doesn't compromise on ports, either. It has two full-size USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, each being capable of 5GBps transfer speeds, a USB-C port, Thunderbolt 3 offering a top speed of 40 GBps, and a Micro SDXC card slot. Battery life was a priority as well — the Eve V has a 48W hour battery that can deliver all 9 hours and 56 minutes of Game of Thrones Season 6 on a single charge.

Eve V starts at $799 for the Intel Core m3 processor with 8GB RAM and 128 SSD storage. It can be configured up to $1,999 for an Intel Core i7 processor with 16GB RAM and 1TB of SSD storage.
