Samsung launched a series of new premium laptops today, but it didn’t forget about those people who are on a budget. Alongside the standard Galaxy Book, also hitting store shelves soon is the refreshed Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha. There’s a lot to like with the Galaxy Book Flex2 Alpha , which comes in at the reasonable price of $850. Though its exterior and vibrant QLED screen hasn’t changed much over last year’s model , it’s what’s inside this refreshed 2-in-1 that matters. It now has options for Intel’s latest 11th-generation Tiger lake processors, which benefit from Iris Xe graphics. Previous Next 1 of 4 Color options include royal silver, mystic Black, or royal blue. RAM options range from 8GB on the Core i5 model and up to 12GB on the Core i7 model, and storage ranges up to 256GB and 512GB respectively.

Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t set to arrive until June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start embracing what we expect to be the retailer’s most exciting event to date with a little bit of harmless speculation. For starters, it’s safe to assume that Prime Day 2021 will see more discounts than ever before. How do we know? Because each Prime Day is bigger and better than the last — duh! So, Prime Day 2021. What’s it about? Well, it’s far too early to say with absolute certainty what we’ll see. Heck, we don’t even know for certain when it will be (though we have a pretty good idea — more on that in a bit). One thing is almost for certain, though: While Amazon will be at the heart of Prime Day 2021, other retailers will also be throwing their hats into the ring. What happened on Prime Day 2020? Before we can look forward to Prime Day 2021, we first need to look back to Prime Day 2020 — an anomaly in the history of the event. Amazon was left with no choice but to reschedule the … [Read more...] about Prime Day Deals 2021: When is it, and what can we expect?
Streacom; known for its untraditional case designs, has teased an all-new project involving a brand new PC chassis with an insane amount of cooling capability, all without the need for case fans. The passive cooler is capable of handling up to 420W GPUs and 195W CPUs; combined that is over 600W of cooling power. Designed to compete with the best PC cases , the chassis itself is wrapped by four tempered glass panels, two for the sides and two for the front and rear. On the top is where all the magic happens, a massive (albeit heavy) metal block that cools both the CPU and the GPU. As noted on the GoFundMe page, the cooler uses a dielectric fluid that works similarly to a vapor chamber cooler. The heat pipes are all sealed shut from the factory, so the 'loop' is maintenance-free. That is all we have to go on, for now. Hopefully, Streacom will get all the resources it needs to finally build this product and ship it to consumers. A computer chassis with a 600W … [Read more...] about Streacom’s Crazy Fanless Chassis Has 600W of Quiet Cooling
