Leaked Fitbit Surge marketing materials

Upcoming Fitbit Surge leaks

Based on leaked marketing materials obtained by The Verge, Fitbit is planning to launch a smartwatch. The Fitbit Surge - first leaked this summer - is billed as a “superwatch,” and it’s a fitness-centric device with constant heart-rate monitoring, as well as independent GPS tracking and sleep tracking.

It’ll apparently also have simple phone notifications and music control with a paired smartphone, but the Fitbit Surge doesn’t seem to be as comprehensive a smartwatch experience as its biggest competitors. And it’ll be priced similarly to those devices at US$250 (about RM818).

But for fitness buffs who want everything concentrated in a wearable, the Fitbit Surge could be an ideal option. And Fitbit has a couple of other bands due out soon, as we saw in other leaked marketing documents that surfaced last week.

Behold the custom PlayStation 4 laptop

Want a semi-portable PlayStation 4 “laptop” with a 22in screen that you can take anywhere? It’ll only cost you US$1395 (about RM4564) - or US$1095 (about RM3582) if you send your own PS4 console. Modder Edward Zarick created the so-called PlayBook 4 after previously concocting the similar Xbook One with Microsoft’s console, and he’s taking orders for anyone who wants one custom-made.

Check out the above video for an overview of the modified console from Zarick himself, and click the link below for more details and ordering info.

New Mac Mini lacks upgradeable RAM

Apple Mac Mini

Planning to snag a new Mac Mini? Just a heads-up that it appears that the latest version has RAM that cannot be easily upgraded, reports Macrumors. As such, you’ll need to pay Apple a hefty fee to upgrade up to 16GB, if desired. It seems that the new Mac Mini has a replaceable hard drive, at least, although it might void the warranty.
