Alldocube has updated their Knote, now called the KNote 5 it ships with the Gemini Lake Celeron N4100. The sad thing is they haven’t done anything else to it. I checked out this model back last year with the N3450 and it only has a Type-C port, no USB type-A. While you get the faster chipset that is really it, RAM has also dropped to 4GB, but it’s DDR4 2400Mhz vs the last gen’s DDR3 1600Mhz. The tablet has the same Wireless AC, Bt 4.1 a 1920 x 1080 11.6″ fully laminated IPS screen. And 128GB of eMMC 5.1 storage.
It’s listed on Gearbest for $345 with the keyboard or $300 without it.
The Beelink S2, this is a Pentium N5000 mini PC, it looks exactly like the Alfawise T1 I’ve ordered to review with the faster Gemini Lake. But this one has an 8GB RAM & 128GB M.2 SSD option, the rest of the spec does seem decent and it will even take a 2.5″ hard drive. It’s listed over on Geekbuying.com for $295.99 on preorder.
And the Jumper EZBook X4 – N4100 EZbook 3L Pro successor is now up for order shipping on the 12th of June, it’s priced at $319.99 which is way better than the crazy $500 price the official AliExpress Jumper store wants.
With the new faster N4100, 128GB SSD it will be faster than the EZBook 3 Pro and 3L Pro. And it has a backlit keyboard! However only 4GB of DDR4 RAM which is a shame. I really want to see at least 8GB now on the new Gemini Lake laptops. And there is a risk this screen might be a TN Panel and not an IPS (Confirmed now with Aliexpress it’s a TN Panel!) It was a lottery on the 3L Pro if you got an IPS or not. I’ll order one for review soon now the price is normal.
Chuwi’s new budget PC, this is the GBox. Celeron N4100 with 2.4Ghz max turbo. 4GB DDR4, 64GB eMMC 5.1, 1000mbps LAN, HDD support, Wireless AC and HDMI 2.0. It also comes with a remote for media use and is fanless. Gearbest is selling it for $239 shipping next week.
