The standout new laptops from CES 2019

  • SAMSUNG ODYSSEY

    Hot on the heels of Nvidia’s announcement of its GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, Samsung’s Odyssey gaming laptop for 2019 is its first to feature the new RTX 2080. What does that mean? Well, it powers real-time ray tracing for improved in-game lighting for titles like Battlefield V.

    The 15.6-inch laptop has a 1080p display, running at 144Hz, so it won’t be for anyone looking for 4K but there’s tons of ports (three USB 3.0, USB-C, Ethernet and HDMI) plus a central hinge to keep things cool.

    LENOVO THINKPAD X1 YOGA

    Although the ThinkPad X1 Yoga has been less impressive in slimming down its bezels than its S940 counterpart, it is its switch from carbon fibre to a lighter aluminium design that could win consumers over, with a lighter weight of 1.35kgs and a thinner screen at 15.2mm. Colour displays are also likely to impress, with 300 nits brightness on the FHD panel and 500 nits on the 4K one. And with up to 16GB of RAM, paired with Intel’s latest eighth generation processors, it looks like performance was not the trade-off for more flexibility.

    ASUS ROG MOTHERSHIP

    Asus has launched what is effectively a 17-inch Surface Pro aimed straight at gamers.

    The ROG Mothership (GZ700) is a gaming laptop with a kickstand and detachable folding keyboard. The Mothership is far bigger than a Surface, of course. The sizeable 17.3-inch 1080p display has a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time and Nvidia’s G-Sync.

    Power comes courtesy of the mobile version of Nvidia’s RTX 2080 GPU and Intel’s Core i9-8950HK processor, both overclocked, and there is up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM. Windows’ Hello facial recognition from the built-in webcam is even supported. That detachable keyboard is neat: it folds in half vertically to take up less desk space.

    It’ll be available during the first quarter of this year.

    ALIENWARE AREA-51M

    Weighing a heavy 3.87kgs, this year’s Area-51m is not one for those wishing to work on-the-go – but that’s because it’s not meant to be. Alienware designed this laptop with gamers in mind, as a desktop replacement in which almost every feature can be configured. The basic version already starts with a Full HD display, Intel’s ninth generation hexa-core i7-8700 processor and GeForce’s RTX 2060 graphics; all of which and many more can be upgraded a la carte in this super-performing device.

    So capable, in fact, that it requires two power supplies.

    RAZER BLADE 15 ADVANCED

    Another launch that is sure to please gamers, the Razer Blade 15 Advanced is an iteration of Razer’s previous model, but which includes the latest GeForce RTX 20-series laptop GPUs. The improved graphics are part of Razer’s plans for high-end gaming, which also include a 15.6 inch Full HD display that can be upgraded to up to 4K resolution. More gimmicky but still worth mentioning is also the addition of an IR camera for facial recognition login.

    Nothing to do with gaming, but all about the cool.

    HP SPECTRE X360 OLED

    This year’s CES was all about OLED screens… on TVs. Less noticed, but still significant, was HP’s Spectre x360 OLED, which brings OLED to your laptop screen. And not just any screen: no less than a 15-inch one.

    With brighter displays and deeper colours than on an ordinary LCD screen, therefore, HP seems to be targeting creatives. But keeping gamers in mind, the company says that the Spectre x360 OLED will also support NVIDIA and GeForce GPUs, albeit basic ones: the MX150 and 1050 Ti respectively. It is also worth bearing in mind that HP has omitted to mention any price for its upcoming laptop, but it is likely that the integration of OLED will justify a hefty price hike.

    ACER SWIFT 7

    In the race for lightness and thinness, Acer is up there against LG, and the Swift 7 is proof enough that the LG Gram 17 will likely hold no monopoly.

    Although Acer’s laptop is smaller – with a 14-inch screen, as opposed to LG’s impressive 17-inches – it beats records with an impressive 9.95mm-thick screen. Yet the device is a strong one, with a magnesium and lithium body, as well as an extra layer of Gorilla Glass 6 covering its HD touchscreen to increase robustness. A significant trade-off for the laptop’s thinness, however, is that the camera has been taken out of the screen and placed as a pop-up between the keyboard and the screen.

    Showing that, for all its remarkable displays, Acer can’t beat plain physics. Not yet.

    ASUS STUDIOBOOK

    ASUS claims that its StudioBook was created to tailor content creators’ needs based on direct feedback from those working in the film and video industries, and from the device’s specs it seems that the company is delivering on its promise. The StudioBook is all about the visuals, featuring a NanoEdge display design and NVIDIA’s Quadro P3200 graphics – the equivalent to creative professionals of GeForce’s GPUs for gamers.

    That is, a must-have. And although the large screen has a desktop feel, it has an 18.4mm frame for a total weight of 2.39kgs. Making it easier to take work home with you, for better or for worse.

    LG GRAM 17

    At an impressive 1.3kgs, it is easy to see where LG’s Gram 17 got its name from – and that’s not just from its 17-inch display.

    The incredible lightness of the device has made it a CES favourite. It also features micro bezels, which seem to be increasingly turning into a laptop must-have this year, and a 2560×1600 pixels display – twice as many as a standard Full HD display. And despite it being so lightweight, LG claims it comes with a battery that can support up to 19.5 hours of operation.

    Power meets lightness, therefore, in a laptop that is likely to be a hit with consumers and professionals alike.

    ACER PREDATOR TRITON 900

    With the Predator Triton 900, Acer ticks many boxes: strong core specs, sleek design and fashionable quirk, whether you call it “foldable” or “two-in-one”. While maybe not as impressive as LG’s rollable TV, the device sports a screen that can separate from its body to fold and flip into a flat, 17-inch touchscreen tablet. With a starting price tag of £3,999, some may argue that the feature is too costly; but that is without accounting for the device’s performance.

    Intel’s six-core i7 processor, paired with an RTX 2080 GPU and Nvidia G-Sync, make for a highly quality laptop that lends itself well to gaming.

    LENOVO YOGA S940

    With a series name that has its origin in Lenovo’s claim that the Yoga devices are as flexible as they sound, the upgrades announced by the company are always met with high expectations. This year was no exception, and the Yoga S940 seems to have delivered on its promise, with a new design that uses contoured glass to finally make the bezels almost disappear around the 13.9-inch panel. The device has up to 16GB of RAM, uses Intel’s eighth generation core i7 processors, and also comes with a newly fitted webcam that supports facial recognition and eye tracking.

    DELL XPS 13 (2019)

    WIRED’s top laptop recommendation was almost perfect going in to 2019, but Dell has seen fit to correct one of its minor flaws.

    The new GBP1,000 XPS 13 squeezes a 720p webcam into the bezel at the top of the 13.3-inch display, where it belongs, rather than awkwardly underneath. Elsewhere, there’s faster Whiskey Lake processors, support for Dolby Vision, a significant improvement on Dell Cinema’s picture quality, and a new white model, plus Dell estimates the battery life at 21 hours on one charge.

    ASUS CHROMEBOOK FLIP C434

    The Chromebook seems to be a working recipe for success for Asus, and the Flip C434 follows that logic, offering similar perks to that of its predecessor, the Flip C302: that’s a 15.7mm-thick, 1.45kg device that is designed to, well, flip into a tablet. But the screen size has increased this year from a 12.5-inch screen to a 14-inch one.

    Like many self-respecting Chromebooks, it is made of metal, with an aluminium cover that looks characteristically grey. But with Intel’s powerful eighth generation processors, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, it is set to be one of the most high-end Chromebooks out there.

    HUAWEI MATEBOOK 13

    After attacking the MacBook Pro empire with its flagship MateBook X Pro last year, Huawei came back this year with a new device that could make a dent in yet another one of Apple’s consumer base: MacBook Air fans. The MateBook 13, with its tiny bezels, high resolution of 2160×1440 on a touchscreen display and 300 nits of brightness, and Intel’s very latest Whiskey Lake processors, looks ready to take on Silicon Valley competition.

    And with a £999 entry-level price, it should give Apple serious reasons to worry – although the MacBook Air takes a lead with its claimed 12 hours of battery life, against the MateBook Pro’s promised 7.2 hours of browsing.
