We all love spending money, and we all love taking delivery of those purchases, but we also all love saving money as part of the process. That’s where our daily tech deals step in.
There are a lot of Samsung-branded wireless chargers out there. Our own Artem even discovered that some of the cheaper options sold by 3rd parties are often fakes. So if you see dubiously inexpensive convertible charging stands out there, you might want to think twice. Thankfully the folks at B&H and Amazon have tossed theirs on sale for as little as $ 49.99, a savings of $ 40 over the standard price. Now deal-seekers need not fret about authenticity.
The C101 was to be ASUS’ successor to the much-loved C100. Both are part of ASUS’ so-called “Flip” series, which are convertible touchscreen Chromebooks. We’ve been looking forward to the release since it was teased back in May at Computex. And now it’s finally available for pre-order at $ 299 via both Amazon and ASUS’ store.

The OP1 chipset, which is the same ARM SoC that’s in Samsung’s Chromebook Plus, will probably be a decent step up from the RK3288C in the old C100.
If you saw HP's Chromebook x360 and yearned for the day when you didn't have to be a student to try it, you now have your chance. HP has made the 11-inch convertible Chrome OS machine available to everyone, with a starting price of $ 300 in the US for… Engadget RSS Feed
Wondering what else Google has prepared for its October 4 hardware event, aside from the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, Home Mini smart speaker, and new Daydream View VR headset? The answer is simple: a convertible – a laptop that turns into a tablet. It’s going to be called Pixelbook, and it’s shaping up to be the successor for the two generations of Chromebook Pixel that Google previously launched. Like those devices, the Pixelbook will be anything but cheap. It will start at $ 1,199 (with 128GB of storage), but can go up to a whopping $ 1,749 (with 512GB of space). It runs…
In the last few years, electric vehicles (EVs) have come a long way, with carmakers like Tesla, Chevrolet, Volkswagen, and many others developing efficient, sleek, new models. Currently, Tesla is leading the pack, launching both luxury and more affordable models that range from sedans to semi trucks. But other companies are hot on Tesla’s trail, eager to reveal their impressive, energy efficient models.
This past Friday, Mercedes-Maybach launched its new concept vehicle, the Vision 6 Cabriolet, at the 2017 Monterey Car Week in California. The concept car is a glamorous, luxury convertible that runs 100 percent on electricity.
Gorden Wagener, Daimler AG chief design officer, said in a Mercedes-Benz press release, “The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes modern luxury into the realms of the ultimate in luxury and is the perfect embodiment of our design strategy. Breathtaking proportions combined with a luxurious haute couture interior help to create the ultimate experience.”
Future of EVs
The vehicle has 750 horsepower and can go more than 320 km (200 miles) on a single charge. This new model is a brilliant follow-up to the previous Vision 6 Coupe, which was unveiled last year. The new model has a boat tail end, and is almost 6 meters (20 feet) long, giving the car an appearance akin to a luxury yacht.
The Tesla Model 3 has an estimated demand of over half a million, and Elon Musk recently leaked information about the impressive long-range capacity of the vehicle. While Tesla is continuing to produce quality options, competition from more affordable and even equally luxurious models isn’t necessarily a bad thing for consumers. And with this luxurious option scoring high on performance, efficiency, comfort, and — most obviously — style, it gives a big boost to the future of EVs.
