Prod­ucts that are hot on the shelves right now

WKND - - Beau Ty Loot -

A highly pig­mented shade that de­liv­ers a smooth, long- last­ing and glossy fin­ish. Per­fect to glam up that party look. Dh14 each

If you’re look­ing for the sty­lus, it’s tucked away in the right- side cor­ner to­wards you. It doesn’t have a fancy name — it’s a Wa­com AES pen — and func­tions and re­sponds fairly well, thanks to 2,048 pres­sure- sen­si­tiv­ity lev­els. Pro­ces­sor Up to In­tel Core i7 vpro OS Win­dows 10 Pro 64- bit Graph­ics In­tel HD Graph­ics 520 Mem­ory RAM – up to 16GB DDR3; stor­age – up to 1TB SSD Dis­play 14” WQHD IPS/ FHD IPS/ WQHD OLED Weight Start­ing at 1.27kg I/ O USB 3.0 ( 3), Onelink+, Mini Dis­play­port, mi­crosd, SIM, HDMI; Wigig, Blue­tooth 4.0; Wa­com sty­lus Bat­tery Up to 11h Price Dh6,200 Pros Easy to use, crisp dis­play, light­weight Cons The bat­tery and price beefs Ed­i­tor’s rat­ing 8/ 10

Hon­estly, there aren’t any is­sues with the com­puter… ex­cept for the bat­tery life. I planned to watch three twohour- long movies in suc­ces­sion, but I found my­self scram­bling when I was half­way through the third one. Rather dis­ap­point­ing since Len­ovo lists the bat­tery life up to 11 hours. And you can’t re­place the bat­tery as it’s builtin… un­less you want to screw off those bolts and DIY.

One more thing: the price is f ai r l y hefty. Start­ing at Dh6,200, it clearly does not come cheap.


It’s sturdy, sleek and a re­minder why Len­ovo’s the No. 1 PC ven­dor to­day, but with all the specs packed into it, the Thinkpad X1 Yoga de­mands a rather hefty price. The gen­eral rule of thumb is to get some­thing that suits your needs and bud­get, but if you have more to spare for the lat­ter, this re­li­able and ver­sa­tile com­puter is def­i­nitely up for con­sid­er­a­tion. As an added perk, Len­ovo says it’s the world’s light­est busi­ness 2- in- 1.
