Qualcomm and the notebook: today it is more like a smartphone than a computer

by admin

The hybrid work, carried out between the office, home and a park bench, requires equally hybrid devices. Like man, in times of pandemic technology too must know how to adapt to the needs of the moment. This is the mantra of Qualcomm, an American company specializing in production of processors, which on the occasion of a closed-door Milan event reiterated the importance of being able to connect anywhere and at any time with your laptop, regardless of the type of use made of it.

The four letters have been at the heart of the San Diego-based company’s strategy for more than two years AcPc, che sta per Always connected Personal computer, that is PC always connected, even when the wi-fi is not there, does not work properly, or is not as safe as it should, how in public hotspots, where you are most exposed to external threats. Pc always reachable by the technician of the company for which you work for remote updates and troubleshooting, always ready to bridge the world via Lte, 4G and, thanks to the new generation of chips, even 5G.


What is a Chromebook and why buy one instead of a traditional PC

In short, devices that think and behave like a smartphone, which despite being pure notebooks or 2-in-1s have characteristics in common and that communicate with an entire ecosystem (or a galaxy, citing the semantics of Samsung) of other devices, from smartwatches to headphones, via tablets. Armed with more energy efficient batteries, equipped with chargers that are no longer bulky as they used to be, without fans thus reducing noise and heat. And with smaller dimensions.

Working in synergy with manufacturers, from Acer to Samsung, from HP to Microsoft, Qualcomm’s goal is to impose these standards in mobile computing, making the interior of devices as uniform as possible and leaving companies free to focus on aesthetics and the form factor, or at most the operating system. In the strategy of the San Diego giant they also have space Chromebooks, increasingly used (especially in schools), and still with good growth margins even in countries where penetration has been slow for a long time, such as Italy.

To do this, however, you need good devices and more affordable prices, in addition to the support of telephone operators, still not completely convinced of the AcPc philosophy, between a general distrust of certain hybridizations, incompatibility with software and applications related to productivity or entertainment and a rise in costs due to the connectivity not only via wi-fi. Hence the choice to offer one range as varied in terms of use, aimed both at the user without too many pretensions as at the high-profile worker or the employee of small and medium-sized enterprises, up to children, complete with super-resistant and military-grade materials precisely to withstand less orthodox and stressful uses.


Lenovo’s bet: you won’t buy our next pc

But also in terms of price, but still calibrated upwards, with models Entry-level lower-end such as the Galaxy Book Go or Lenovo’s Ideapad Duet 5, equipped with first and second generation Snapdragon 7c which are around 400 to 500 euros; those Mainstream (like Hp Envy x2 or Asus’ NovaGo) which use the 8c; and finally the first and second generation 8cx, reserved for the band Premium.

The most recent is it Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G, presented last year: it is found on devices that have already arrived on the market (such as the Acer Spin 7) or coming soon (such as the HP Elite Folio), aimed at more demanding users who can motivate an expense that goes well over 1000 euros, if offset by good performance and practicality. And the promise of Qualcomm and the various manufacturers lies in better thought out power consumption, clearly 5G connectivity, battery use between 16 and 20 hours (9 hours of uninterrupted meetings, according to tests).

Values ​​applicable, on a smaller scale, even on lower-end devices, with some attention paid especially in the school environment and the resolution of practical problems: no more lessons interrupted by the low battery, thanks to the longevity of the same, or by the wi-fi that does not work, thanks to the Sim (or even eSim) which allows you to connect in a totally independent way.
