5 New Laptops From IFA 2018, Thin Light And Gaming Series From Acer And Asus

IFA 2018 was very interesting indeed and here we are going to look into the different laptops that we got to see at the event. These laptops include the Acer Predator Triton 900 gaming laptop, new Asus ZenBooks, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme, the Lenovo Yoga Book and Acer Swift 5.

Laptops From IFA 2018

These laptops include both professional laptops that are thin and light as well as gaming laptops that come with the latest CPUs and graphics cards. You can check out the different laptops that we saw at FA 2018 below:

Acer Predator Triton 900 Gaming Laptop

Acer Predator Triton 900 is a prototype design with a new hinge mechanism that allows the screen to flip. This is a gaming laptop, so this is not a thin and light but the hardware is pretty hardcore. This laptop from IFA 2018 can be configured with an RTX 2080 or 2070, which have yet to be released to the public.

The laptop also comes with the top of the line CPU that can be overclocked. While we do not know anything about the pricing of the laptop, it is safe to say that the device will cost around $5000 if not more. Stay tuned for more updates and information regarding the Acer Predator Triton 900.

New Asus ZenBooks

The new Asus Zenbooks have been showcased and they still come with the premium finish and are thin and light. These are one of the thinnest laptops in the word and weigh less than a KG. The laptops have a 92 percent screen-to-body ratio and there are multiple versions. The laptops feature the Intel Whiskey Lake CPUs and can be configured with the MX 150 graphics. The 15-inch model can also be equipped with a GTX 1050.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme  

This is the first business laptop from Lenovo that offers users a GTX 1050 configuration. This means that not only are you getting the security features of a business device but you are also getting the graphics horsepower of a discrete graphics card. The device starts at $1,860 and is a great option to consider if you are in the market for a new laptop for work.

The device was shown off at IFA 2018 and come November there will be a version that comes with an Intel Core i9. The device is powered by 8th generation Intel CPUs so you can get up to 4 cores and 8 threads.

New Lenovo Yoga Book 

We got the dual screen Yoga a while back and there is a new version that was shown off at IFA 2018. The device now comes with a E Ink keyboard instead of a second screen and this makes the typing experience much better. While it does not feel as good as a physical keyboard, it is a step in the right direction. The Yoga Book C930 will be available in Intel Core m5 and Core i5 versions. Starting in October for $999.

 

Acer Swift 7

The Acer Swift 5 is one the thinnest laptops in the world and is a premium product made of alloys, so it not only has a premium price tag and hardware but a premium feels as well. The laptop was showcased at IFA 2018 and starts at $1,100, weighs just 2.2 pounds, which is less than the LG Gram. If you want something that takes on the MacBook but want the Windows OS then this is something to look into.

Let us know what you think about these devices that were shown at IFA 2018 and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these devices.
