3. MSI GF63

Esports gaming in style

CPU: Intel Core i7 | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 (4GB GDDR5) - GTX 1050 Ti (4GB GDDR5) | RAM: up to 32GB | Screen: 15.6-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) IPS | Storage: 1TB HDD

Bezel-less display 
Great performance for the money 
No SSD 

Gaming laptops, especially since Nvidia’s RTX lineup hit the street, are more expensive than ever. Packing a thin and light package with powerful hardware gets expensive, so when we find an MSI gaming laptop that offers a prodigious value, we take note. The MSI GF63 isn’t the most powerful laptop on the market, far from it, but with up to an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, you’ll be able to get great frame rates in your favorite esports titles without paying a fortune. Add that to the attractive chassis and super-thin bezels and it’s not hard to see why it’s just a great buy. It doesn’t come with an SSD out of the box, but with a screwdriver and 15 minutes of your time, you can fix that.

Powerful 
Still portable 
A little pricey 

It’s easy to find an MSI gaming laptop that really grabs your attention, the svelte design of the GS65 Stealth, the titanic performance of the GT75 Titan. However, sometimes finding something right down the middle is the best move. And, while we haven’t reviewed the MSI GE75 Raider quite yet, the high-end specs should deliver comparable performance to a much thicker laptop without sacrificing portability. It’s not quite “thin and light”, but you should be able to carry it around. And, that space you’re getting over something like the GS65 Stealth means you can upgrade it however you want – you can even fit two NVMe drives in there.

Fantastic 240Hz screen

  • New AI tool eliminates a common nightmare for hard drive users

    NAS device manufacturer QNAP has partnered with ULINK Technology to launch a new AI-powered tool capable of predicting when a hard drive is likely to fail.

    The software, called DA Drive Analyzer, is designed to mitigate the risk of server downtime and data loss brought about by critical NAS drive failures.

    According to the QNAP release, the service harnesses data drawn in from millions of customers to determine when a particular drive is likely to fail, as well as identifying failure events that would not be picked up by diagnostics tools that rely on S.M.A.R.T.

    The service does not support SAS and NVMe drives at launch, but QNAP implies this may change in future. Whether SATA drives are supported, meanwhile, depends on firmware compatibility.

    Forecasting drive failures

    In addition to heightened failure prediction capacities, QNAP also says it focused closely on ensuring the Drive Analyzer interface was as simple to use as possible.

    Snapshots from the website suggest it should be easy for users to access data pertaining to each NAS drive in their system. The software then provides a general indication of drive status (Normal, Critical, Faulty etc.), a percentage likelihood of failure and advice on next steps.

    The end goal is to ensure customers are not blindsided by sudden NAS drive failures, by providing ample opportunity to replace well-worn drives before disaster strikes.

    “QNAP is acutely aware that potential server down time is a critical concern for QNAP NAS users and sudden drive failure is one of its primary causes,” said Tim Lin, Product Manager at QNAP.

    “We are honored to have the chance to partner with ULINK to develop the DA Drive Analyzer to help users, especially IT staff who must manage large numbers of NAS devices. We envision that the DA Drive Analyzer will be a great assist to users looking to build advanced disaster recovery plans.”

    The DA Drive Analyzer is free to use until March 5, 2022 for all beta users that supplied their drive data with QNAP in order to train its AI. Otherwise, the tool will be charged at a rate of $5 per drive, charged up front as a twelve-month subscription.

  • This new Zoom feature could save you from an embarrassing blunder

    Zoom has unveiled a series of new features for its video conferencing software, one of which could prevent users from making a serious workplace faux pas.

    As explained in a blog post, Zoom administrators can now configure virtual backgrounds to reset to a chosen default after each meeting.

    Strangely, the official rationale is that the feature will help avoid situations whereby sensitive data is exposed in a virtual background, which feels like a fringe scenario. More beneficial will be the peace of mind afforded to people who regularly use the virtual background feature for non-work purposes.

    New Zoom features

    Since the transition to remote working, the number of Zoom customers has expanded dramatically and the software is now used for all manner of purposes, both professional and personal.

    Zoom became the go-to platform for quizzes, yoga classes,  virtual parties and more during Covid lockdowns. And while many people are returning to in-person events as societies open up, online collaboration services like Zoom still play a larger role in the private sphere than they ever did before.

    With this in mind, it’s easy to imagine a scenario in which someone forgets to remove an inappropriate background before the end of a personal video call, leading to an embarrassing situation on a Monday morning. But with the latest Zoom update, this need no longer be a concern.

    The option to automatically reset virtual backgrounds is just one of a number of changes bundled with the latest Zoom update.

    The company has also rolled out a feature that allows meeting hosts to add a video to the virtual waiting room, which will play while participants wait to be allowed into the call, and admins can also now enable and disable the watermark feature in the middle of a meeting.

    Lastly, Zoom has doubled down on its feature set for international collaboration. The language used in the Zoom client will now be dictated by the language applied in the user’s browser, and meeting hosts can now enable the language interpretation feature by default when scheduling a meeting.
