As the IFA 2019 in Berlin comes to an end, it is time to reflect on what we have announced and to test it at the fair. In particular, we saw more than a few new laptops that inspired us at the end of 2019 and beyond in computing.
From the most graphically powerful laptops we've ever seen to laptops shaped like ultrabooks, but bursting with the power of portable gaming machines, some radical laptops are coming to market. Here is a brief overview of the most exciting IFA 2019 laptops.
Asus ProArt StudioBook
Featuring an Nvidia Quadro RTX 6000 graphics processor (GPU) and Intel Core i9 processor (CPU), as well as a 15-inch 4K Pantone-validated display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz Asus – new laptop for professional developers will certainly be an incredibly powerful one mobile workstation,
Asus also offers a 17-inch version of the laptop with a four-sided NanoEdge display, the first of its kind with incredibly narrow frames all around. These mega-powerful laptops will be available in October 2019 and prices will be announced later. However, do not expect these parts to be affordable both internally and externally.
Razer Blade Stealth (late 2019)
The Razer Blade Stealth 13 (late 2019) From 1.499 USD (1.679 EUR, about 1.250 GBP / 2.220 AU $) is an option for the most powerful graphics in one Ultrabook to date. The new model "Late 2019" can be equipped with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU and an Intel CPU of the 10th generation, which make this Ultrabook a suitable gaming laptop.
Of course this is not the entry-level version of the laptop and as such will cost a pretty penny for the luxury of truly mobile PC games. However, this is a great sign for the future, as it is quite possible to pack hardcore graphics into thin and lightweight laptops.
Lenovo Yoga C940
The new Yoga C940 – Successor to the C930 – has the usual 360-degree hinge, but the speaker has been improved and redesigned. Lenovo calls this feature "Rotating Sound Bar" and now offers Dolby Atmos audio through the drivers.
Lenovo also equipped this new laptop with one of the first available 10nm Intel processors, leading to a supposedly massive battery life extension. And to sweeten the pot, there is a new 15-inch model with Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics. The Yoga C940 starts this October from $ 1,249 (about £ 1,040, $ 1,850).
Acer Predator Triton 500
The new 15-inch gaming flagship from Acer is the first on the market, the display has a refresh rate of 300 Hz. This means that the screen reliably displays up to 300 frames per second without visible visual breaks or other artifacts becoming visible – a blessing for Esport champions who need to be faster than ultra-fast.
Acer will release the Predator Triton 500 in the EMEA region in November, with the North American version available in December. The gaming notebook costs from $ 2,799 (about 2,320 GBP, 4,140 AU $).
