Update #2 I’ve finally got my hands on the new V4 revision, more on that here.
Update: Thanks to Jared @NZUnicorn for confirming this. Gearbest is indeed shipping the latest version now. He just got the new model which should really be called the EZbook 3 Pro V4. One more improvement to add to the list, it has an easy access M.2 SSD hatch now like the Onda Xiaomi 31 I reviewed. So the best version of the EZbook 3 Pro with a full unlocked bios including power limit options in CPU advanced menu, a new precision touchpad, new rubber around the screen and a new M.2 slot! It also apparently chargers faster.
It’s here for $249 on flash sale. I feel like selling my V3 model for this latest v4 revision!

Well, well. It seems Jumper does listen to feedback from customers. Joe in the forum has the latest and greatest revised version of the EZbook 3 Pro with the newest bios version JUMPER10x.P8.WP313R.NHNAUHN02 dated from August. Tweaks in this bios include the power limit option has now been added, so a 100% completely unlocked bios. Disabling the power limit is like that TDP tweak we have been using to increase the performance of the Intel Celeron N3450 and Pentium N4200’s. It really makes a difference, so now with this setting if set to disabled will allow the N3450 to consume more power and turbo longer and higher. Mostly the GPU benefits from this.
It’s almost as if Jumper watched my videos on the tweak and laptops like the Civiltop Air that had it disabled and thought we must include that setting.
The second improvement, the touchpad is now a precision one. Why does that matter? Well, it means we can tweak and disable the gestures and most importantly this type of touchpad has proved to be so much better than the stock standard cheaper non-precision touchpads found in the older EZBook 3 pro models and other Apollo lake laptops.
And the last tweak, more rubber between the lid to help stop any metal on metal rubbing when the lid is closed.
The new models are coming out now, but so far only Lightinthebox is confirmed to be shipping it. Gearbest stock might also be the new one, but we need to confirm this first.
