The Asus NovaGo is future of laptops, even if it looks a lot like other 2-in-1 foldable notebooks on the outside.

It the first ‘Always Connected’ Gigabit Windows laptop and boasts better than all-day battery life thanks to its Snapdragon 835 chipset and Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.

This means we’re now seeing a laptop capable of 1Gbps speeds, which are three to seven times faster than your broadband speeds at home, depending on where you live.

No need to tether with a smartphone, and no need to deal with offline mode in documents as this always-connected Windows machine has a built-in eSIM, plus a battery that’s capable of up to 22 hours of video playback.

It almost sounds too good to be true, so we’ve gone hands on with the NovaGo to see if the early signs are positive.
