Recently I just got hold of my EZBook 3L Pro, the 14″ version of the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro and a laptop that is almost identical to the Tecalst F7 I reviewed. This one comes from the same ODM, there are only minor differences which I’ll outline below and one big difference depending on how lucky or unlucky you are. After all the reports from various users that Jumper switched to using an IPS panel and not a TN on in the EZBook 3L Pro I finally ordered one.
But luck wasn’t on my side, my 3L Pro has the old TN panel, the same one in the EZBook 3 Plus which is basically the same laptop but with a Core M3 and 8GB of RAM. Highly annoyed to say the least my one isn’t one of the IPS batches. It would seem that Jumper might be switching between the TN and IPS panels still. Other than this the machines are almost identical apart from the power limit option settings in the bios aren’t available to us ( But software unlocking works) and the power adapter and box aren’t as nice as the Teclast F7’s one.
So there we go, if you can get the Teclast F7, it’s still the best Celeron N3450 Laptop around. However, if you can somehow guarantee you’ll get an IPS panel from your seller or the TN panel doesn’t bother you the EZBook 3L Pro is still a good choice and better than the EZBook 3 Pro.
Of course price is another factor, currently, the EZBook 3L Pro is selling for $267 with coupon GBTPC here.
Then it’s $239 at Geekbuying but their shipping adds another $40 or so to the price making it more expensive than Gearbest.
The Teclast F7 is $324 at Gearbest, not sure why they increased the price so much. Geekbuying also sell the Teclast F7 and it’s currently going for $275. But their expensive shipping is the issue, remember that DHL normally comes with import tax and duty.
