Mercedes-Benz E200

Kenny Yeo

The E-Class is an important car for Mercedes-Benz. It is one of the German brand’s best-selling cars worldwide and it is also one of the most popular cars here in Singapore. To make sure that the newest E-Class would be a hit, Mercedes-Benz has pulled out all the stops in making sure that its latest medium size luxury saloon would be a technological tour de force. And boy have they succeeded. The new 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is dripping with technology. And this is evident right from the moment you open the door and get into the driver’s seat.

The cabin is, as you expect, very elegant, classy, and luxurious. The test car we drove had lots of aluminum trimmings, which is really nice and lends a more modern touch that I’m sure younger owners would appreciate as opposed to the more familiar wood veneer that most cars in this class would otherwise have. The seats are leather, of course, and are also fully electric and very adjustable and comfortable.

However, what really catches your attention and hints at the level of technology in the new E-Class is its twin 12.3-inch displays. Each display off ers a resolution of 1,920 x 720 pixels and both are housed under a single shared glass cover. The two large screens are used to display the Mercedes COMAND system (Cockpit Management and Data System) and also replaces the traditional instrument dials like the speedometer and tachometer. It looks as if you are driving with two large iPad Pros in front of you.

XIAOMI MI 11 - THE AFFORDABLE FLAGSHIP

The Xiaomi Mi 11 has all the core features of what Xiaomi wants to offer in a 2021 flagship, without some of its over-the-top features from the Mi 11 Ultra. For instance, Mi 11 doesn’t have the secondary AMOLED display, multi-point direct ToF laser focusing, or IP-rated water resistance, all of which is available on the Mi 11 Ultra.

Apple 12.9-Inch iPad Pro (2021) - Ridiculously Powerful

M1 was Apple’s first custom processor, and never in my years of writing about notebooks have I seen a processor that’s so powerful and efficient. In my review, I said it rewrote the notebook rulebook. So what did Apple do next? Naturally, it took the M1 chip and put it in the iPad Pro.

No Rest For The Wicked

With not one, not two, but three Diablo games in the pipeline and well on their way to release, I don’t think I can stress this enough: it’s a fantastic time to be a fan of Blizzard’s beloved dungeon-crawler franchise. On our end, we’ve already thrown a few punches at both Immortal and D2R’s Technical Alpha sessions, and so far, we’re quite satisfied with what they’ve got on the menu.
