After ore than 3 years, Apple has finally updated their smallest tablet. The 2019 iPad mini 5 sports a similar design and the same 7.9” screen size as the last gen model, this long overdue refresh focuses on the most important features—an updated Apple A12 Bionic CPU, Apple Pencil 1 support, and a Retina IPS high resolution laminated display with True Tone and wide P3 color gamut. It's available in WiFi-only and WiFi plus 4G LTE versions.
The 5.8" Galaxy S10e is the smallest and most affordable among Samsung’s 2019 flagship trio of Galaxy S Android smartphones. It has nearly all the features of the larger and more expensive Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ phones-- a Snapdragon 855 CPU, 128GB starting storage, a Dynamic AMOLED HDR10+ display with front camera o-hole, bi-directional Qi wireless charging and the same array of wireless radios.
The Vaio SX14 is a 14" Ultrabook that's extremely thin and light and good looking, yet it has plenty of ports. It runs Windows 10 Pro on Intel Whiskey Lake quad core, 15 watt CPUs (your choice of Core i5 or Core i7). The laptop is available with full HD and 4K matte displays, and weighs just 2.3 pounds.
New for 2019, the LG gram 17 is LG's biggest Ultrabook, yet it's slim and by far the lightest 17" laptop in the world at 2.95 pounds. The notebook runs Windows 10 on the Core i7-8565U processor, which is Intel’s Whiskey Lake late 8th gen quad core 15 watt CPU for Ultrabooks. It has 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 512GB SSD and a very nice skinny bezel 2560 x 1600 IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio like Apple’s MacBook laptops.
This is the newest and most powerful HP Spectre x360 15” model yet, with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q GPU and an Intel Core i7-8750H 6 core, 45 watt CPU. As ever, this is a slim and relatively light premium Windows convertible with 360 degree hinges and a 4K UHD display supporting touch and the included HP Active Pen. It’s available in the usual dark ash silver color and the new Poseidon blue.
The Kensington SD7000 dock for Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 2017 and Surface Pro 6 makes your tablet look like a mini Surface Studio. It connects to the Surface Connect port and adds myriad ports while also supporting the Surface Pro at a variety of heights and angles using two articulating hinges and chrome arms.
This early 2019 refresh moves the webcam from the bottom to the top of the display bezel area (no more chin-cam!) and updates to Intel 8th gen Whiskey Lake Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs. The Dell XPS 13 is one of the more compact premium 13” Ultrabooks on the market. It has a fast NVMe SSD, full HD and 4K display options, Thunderbolt 3 and 3 color options.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ run Android 9.0 Pie with Samsung’s new One UI on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor with 8GB RAM and your choice of 128GB/512GB/1TB storage. The phone has an infinity-O display with a hole punch for the front camera rather than a notch, curved glass sides and an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. The S10 family have HDR10+ high res Super AMOLED widescreen displays, a microSD card slot, headphone jack and bi-directional Qi wireless charging.
This is a classy, yet fairly reasonably priced premium laptop starting at $739 with a full HD IPS display, Intel 8th gen Whiskey Lake quad core CPUs, Thunderbolt 3, up to 16GB RAM and your choice of a 128GB or 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD. It has Thunderbolt 3. This laptop is called the Lenovo Yoga 730S in the EU.
This is the early 2019 refresh with NVIDIA RTX graphics. The GE75 is a 17.3” gaming laptop with a compact footprint thanks to small display bezels, and there’s the 15.6” GE63 for those who want a smaller laptop. The Raider runs Windows 10 on the 6 core, 45 watt Core i7-8750H processor with your choice of full mobile (NOT Max-Q) NVIDIA RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 dedicated graphics. If you hate heat, this is cooler running than the MSI GS75.
This is Wacom's first "affordable" pen display for those who can't afford their very expensive Pro line Cintiq models. The Cintiq 16 is $649 and it uses the same Wacom EMR technology and battery-less Pro Pen 2 with 8,192 pressure levels and tilt as the Cintiq Pro models. The pen monitor has a full HD 1920 x 1080 IPS display with near full sRGB coverage, virtually no parallax, silent operation and wide compatibility with art, 3D and photo editing programs that use Windows Ink and WinTab. It competes with pen displays from XP-Pen, Ugee and Huion.
