The Galaxy Book 2 is one of a relatively new breed of 2-in-1 devices wielding ARM hardware underneath hood and running Windows 10 S. There's an obvious raw performance trade off versus building a 2-in-1 around a burlier x86 chip, but these... Read more...
Back in early June, Qualcomm announced its Snapdragon 850 Mobile Platform, which will form the basis for second-generation "Always Connected" Windows 10 PCs. As expected, Lenovo is the first out of the gate with a new 2-in-1 convertible based on Snapdragon 850, which shouldn't come as a surprise given that it was part of the freshman class with the Snapdragon 835-powered Miix 630.

Andromeda has been rumored for quite some time, and Surface Chief Panos Panay even fueled the rumormill with a cryptic tweet late last month.

A new insider report suggests that Andromeda has [thankfully] not been canceled, but that the... Read more...
When Microsoft and Qualcomm announced "Always Connected" Windows 10 PCs back in late 2016, it was revealed that the first shipping systems would be powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor.
