Including huge 18-inch screens, two screens and E Ink displays.
It’s always tempting to focus entirely on the weird and wonderful gadgets coming out of CES, but today I want to take a moment to highlight a few interesting laptops that were announced at the show.
First up are the new Razer Blade 16 and 18, the latter of which has an absolutely massive 18-inch screen. But it’s actually the 16-inch version that I’m more interested in after reading my colleague Monica’s hands-on, thanks to the Mini LED display, which has a thousand local dimming zones for better HDR performance.
And if you’re looking for something a little less sophisticated, Lenovo’s ThinkBook Plus Twist has you covered thanks to its 12-inch E Ink color screen, which comes with in addition to its more standard 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen. Or if you want to go the other way, there’s this Lenovo Yoga Book 9i, which has two screens and not an E Ink in sight.
Finally, it’s nice to see Asus’ collaboration with PC fan specialist Noctua continuing. It just announced a Noctua edition of an RTX 4080 graphics card which, judging by past collaborations, should result in a GPU that can run beautifully quietly even under heavy load. Too bad there is no price or availability yet.
And now, here’s a silly tweet to start your day:
