Update: According to Jumper the first batch will come with no SSD expansion M.2 slot and the second batch with M.2 SSD slot is due on the 20th. In China it’s known as the EZbook Pro, but will sell outside of China as the EZBook 3 Pro.
There will be a silver version of the EZBook Pro for those that hate the gold color. It’s now listed on Gearbest for $302 as a preorder and they also state the wireless as wireless N which is a shame, I would rather have wireless AC of course. And it looks like that silver version won’t be shipping until first week of May. Aliexpress’s Official Jumper Store told me the gold version will start shipping out from China on the 5th of April.
Jumper are pushing out yet another budget focused laptop, this time it looks more interesting than the EZbook 3 I reviewed. Why? Firstly it has a full metal build, so the lid and body are made out of alloy, so hopefully it will mean the keyboard is more firm without the flex the EZBook 3 has. Secondly, it will have 6GB of RAM, no doubt another piece of tech to use two Samsung LPDDR3 3GB RAM modules in dual channel like the Teclast X3 Plus.
It’s very similar in looks to the Onda Xiaoma 41, coming in gold with black keys. The Jumper EZBook Pro has a 1080p 13.3-inch IPS panel, 9600 mAh battery, and 64GB eMMC. There is an empty slot for a SATA3 M.2 SSD (2242) and the notebook has 2 x USB 3.0 ports. D/C plug in for charging and MicroSD slot and HDMI out. What I can’t confirm from the listing is if it has Wireless AC or not. It would be a shame if it didn’t.
Thanks to Ojo for pointing this one out to me on Twitter.
