Microsoft Surface Pro 9
The popular Microsoft Surface Pro range is back with their latest Surface Pro 9 that comes with new-and-improved features to take your productivity to the next level. The device retains its iconic built-in kickstand and a sleek edge-to-edge 13-inch PixelSense display, with a 120Hz refresh rate. Located underneath the display is a HD camera, Omnisonic speakers, directional microphones and Microsoft’s custom G6 chip that takes the inking experience to the next level. Paired with the all-new Ink Focus in Microsoft OneNote, or the GoodNotes app, digital ink on screen will feel as smooth as pen on paper for digital artists and creators.
The Surface Pro 9 is available in two options—powered by the 12th Gen Intel Core processor built on the Intel Evo platform 1 with Thunderbolt 4, or Microsoft Sq3 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon with 5G connectivity. Both options come with great performance thanks to the Intel Core processor that meets the demands of real-world multi-tasking with 50 per cent more performance power than its predecessor. With the Thunderbolt 4, data transfer becomes seamless and quick, and supports an eGPU set-up. Alternatively, the Microsoft Sq3 processor will equip users on-the-go with fast 5G connectivity and up to 19 hours of battery life. Two colourways are available in the options of Sapphire and Forest. The Microsoft Surface 9 is a great choice for those looking for a portable device with full-desktop productivity.

Suunto 9 Peak Pro
If you’re looking for a nifty companion on your athletic adventures, the Suunto 9 Peak Pro could be your latest purchase. The fully carbonised sport watch is built on award-winning design with an upgraded powerful processor that offers a faster and user-friendly interface, longer battery life, and accurate GPS tracking.
Further, the Suunto 9 Peak Pro is one of the thinnest and lightest sport watches with a weight as low as 55g and an ultra-thin screen of 10.8 mm (excluding HR dome) and display monitor of 1.2 inches. However, it doesn’t sacrifice durability as the watch comes with a military standard of toughness, making it a versatile gadget to track your everyday activities to more extreme conditions. For instance, the Suunto 9 Peak Pro offers the new snorkelling sports mode that tracks activity data downwards of 10 metres and is waterproof down to negative 100 metres. This is just one of the 97 sports modes available that also comes with customisable options.
Known to be “extremely elegant, extremely tough”, the sports watch doesn’t compromise on style as it comes in six different versions: four models built with stainless steel, and two made with titanium. Customers are also spoilt for choice with the wide variety of accessory straps available.
Price: RM3,199 (titanium model), RM2,699 (stainless steel model)

Coming in three variants: Huawei Mate50, Huawei Mate50 Pro, and Huawei Mate50 Pro Orange Vegan Leather, the flagship phones are both powerful and beautiful. Firstly, they take smartphone aesthetics a leap forward with their symmetrical Space Ring Design and refined Clous de Paris pattern.

The Mate 50 Series is also equipped with SuperStorage which removes duplicate files in an imperceptible way and compresses rarely-used apps, which can preserve storage up to 20GB and thus, improves performance. Battery life also gets an upgrade with the SuperEnergy Boosting feature that enables the new flagship phones to extend standby time by three hours at only 1 per cent of battery.
