2017 laptops that we saw at CES


Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 wrapped up earlier in January this year and the gadget-thon lived up to its Las Vegas reputation. It was the place to be for techies and technology enthusiasts looking to see what is next in technology. It also showcased the innovations that are expected to set the tone for this year and many more to come. Most companies used the CES 2017 to showcase their latest updates on laptops, tablets and hybrid laptop/tablet device ranges. The show held in January this year was no different from the rest as a number of manufacturers took the opportunity to show their greatest and latest laptops. Below is a detailed guide to new laptops of 2017 at CES.


Asus used the CES 2017 to showcase a number of new products from its line, and the most impressive of them all was the latest high-end Chromebook. Although the previous Chromebook Flip was ultra-portable, affordable and small Chrome OS machine, the latest Chromebook Flip C302A features a high-spec awesome piece. It will feature a 6th generation Core M3 and M7 processors and a 12.5” full HD display that is built on hinges that will allow it to rotate for 360-degrees. Users will have the option of choosing between a RAM of 4GB or 8 GB and an in-built storage of 32GB, 64GB or 128GB when it is offered for sale. Its estimated prices are expected to start from $500 (about £400).


Dell on the other hand unveiled its new XPS 13 laptop convertible version at the CES 2017. The manufacturer stated that the new 2-in-1 will bear the same InfinityEdge display like in the XPS 13 and 15. Users can therefore expect a screen that will be bezel-free, and it will be among the smallest laptops ever launched at 13-inches. The new laptop/tablet crossover will come in two versions: the 1080 full HD and the Quad HD+. It will also boast of a Core i7 processor, 1 TB SSD and 16GB RAM. It will have a 46WHr battery that will go up to 10 hours in the QHD+ version and 15 hours for the full HD. Dell also announced that it is planning to build a convertible version of its Latitude 13 business laptop.


Lenovo announced the pending release of nine brand new laptops, which will be updates to the already existing line of ThinkPad. They will all have the most recent Intel Core I processors as well as come with MilSpec durability, Precision Touchpad and bloatware together with free Windows 10. The most notable and interesting device will be the Miix 720, which is expected to provide competition to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. It is expected that the Lenovo Miix 720 will come with a keyboard for $999 (£800). It will have a 12” Quad HD+ display, Core i7 processor, Intel HD 620 graphics and configurable going up to 16GB RA and 1 TB SSD.

Lenovo Miix 720’s kickstand will be adjusted to 150 degrees using a unique watchband hinge on its back and its body will be built using a metal alloy piece. A new stylus, Active Pen 2, with over 4,000 levels in pressure sensitivity will be included at an extra cost of $60 (£50). The ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2017 will be among the first of the ThinkPad line. It will come in a 14” bezel-free screen that will give the range a slimmer than usual look.


Apart from updating HP’s Spectre lineup to include bezel-free displays and faster processors, it also released the new EliteBook x360. The notebook closely resembles the notebooks from Apple. HP claimed that it has the thinnest 2-in-1 business-centric ever made measuring 0.59 inches thick. It will come with a dedicated row for conference call precise buttons that are expected to tempt business clients from their Thinkpads that are old and chunky. Upon its release, customers will have the option of getting a recent gen Core i5 or a Core i7 processor. They can also choose to upgrade their 13.3” screen to the 4K resolution type. It will have a fingerprint scanner as well as a privacy screen integrated in it to help in keeping things secure. There has not been any communication regarding its prices yet but it hit the market during the month of January, 2017.

All of the above important information forms a guide to new laptops of 2017 at CES. They provide the necessary information on the latest laptops to be released to help people look out for what’s hot in the market.
