Solid Laptop 

The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 contains an Intel 8th-gen Quad Core i5 or i7 processor, while offering up to 14.5 hours of battery life and faster, quieter typing. Its 13.5-inch PixelSense Display touchscreen is enabled for the Surface Pen, with an edge-to-edge display and ultra-thin bezels. The Surface Laptop 2 weighs 2.76 pounds and includes OmniSonic speakers for premium sound. The laptop comes with a hard drive of 28 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, or a 1 TB solid-state drive (SSD), and 8 GB or 16 GB RAM of memory.

Pack It Up

The Vx Touring CitySports Daypack has room for a 15-inch laptop. Its shoulder straps and back panel are padded for comfort, and the lockable zippers ensure belongings are secure. The daypack’s rear sleeve slides over the handle of wheeled luggage, and there are water-resistant zippers on integrated laptop pockets. Made of polyester, it weighs 2.2 pounds.

Smart Adapter

Moshi announced its second-generation USB-C Digital Audio Adapter with Charging. Like all Made for Google products, the adapter has been tested and certified by Google to ensure compatibility and performance. The adapter’s new printed circuit board design layout is designed to reduce power consumption and its new firmware provides greater compatibility across devices. The adapter features a built-in digital-to-analog converter, which yields high-resolution audio at 24-bit/96 kHz. A Class G amplifier enhances the sound quality of older headphones. It’s made from anodized aluminum for added durability, and users can listen to music while charging their Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL at the same time.
