Deals: New Teclast F7 128GB SSD Model For $279 (Updated)

Deals: New Teclast F7 128GB SSD Model For $279 (Updated)

Update #2: The Tecalst F7 128GB SSD model is now $279 USD, the price has dropped $20 and is limited to 200 units. Right now it’s still the best budget laptop, the new EZBook X4 might have the faster, newer Celeron N4100 CPU, but it has 2GB less RAM and a TN panel.

Update: For those that missed out. Another 200 units were added today, so it’s back at $299 from $369! I spotted the Tecalst F7 for $299 and thought at first glance that’s not an amazing price. Until I saw that this version has a 128GB SSD and not the first slower 64GB eMMC 5.1 model. When you factor in the cost of a 128GB SSD and then the time having to clone or reinstall Windows 10 on the SSD you install this isn’t actually that bad of a deal. And more so considering the 64GB eMMC model is selling for $279 at Geekbuying and that’s about the lowest you’ll find the 64GB version for now. So the extra for the SSD makes sense for those looking for a fanless Apollo Lake laptop this is the best one I’ve reviewed. The laptop that bettered the EZBook 3 Pro.

The deal is here. And my review is here Or below if you will.

  1. There is also a good deal on the Jumper EZBOOK Pro 3 – at Gearbest £160.44 https://www.gearbest.com/laptops/pp_647765.html?wid=1433363&lkid=14770243

  2. Hello,
    First of all, thank you for all your great reviews, you do a great job and influenced me in my recent order. 😉
    Second, this Promo is online for more 6 days in Gearbest, 76 units left. Just got my ordered, 128GB SSD version.

    Best Regards

  3. Hi Chris
    Do you know about this YEPO 737A Notebook RAM da 6 GB – 64GB eMMC with SSD slot @172€ with coupon on Gearbest?
    looks like the same harware re-branded

    • Does not look same, has an different toucpad

      • you’re right, actually is more like the EZBook 3 Pro
        which anyway is a close competitor as well

  4. Ordered version 128GB ssd and received version with 64GB emmc.

    • how did you solved?

      • Paypal helped me. Gearbest behaved very unprofessional and dishonest. Paypal helped me get back 35EUR.

  5. Hi Chris,

    Is it possible to install Linux on the SSD (dualboot with Windows 10)?

    How to reinstall fresh Windows 10?

  6. Hello Chris,

    thank you for your valuable reviews.

    I’m eager to buy Teclast F7 from the deal above. However, I wonder what 128 SSD version really means. Is that just 64GB eMMC with 128GB SSD installed already? Or does it only have SSD installed, but no 64GB eMMC at all? Or maybe it has 128GB SSD “somewhere” instead of 64GB eMMC, but you can expand the memory by installing another M.2 SSD? Do you have any clue about that?

    Thank you,
    Tomasz

    • As far as I know it’s a Teclast 128GB SSD, no eMMC. I can’t find where I remember getting this info. It was the EZbook 3 Pro 128GB model, that I think Brand bought that had a 64GB eMMC + 64GB SSD in the end installed which isn’t a correct listing it as 128GB SSD.

  7. Great deal on this device, especially considering the 128GB SSD.

    However, I’d really wish we would start seeing the new Intel Gemini Lake CPUs in these budget devices.

    Not much changed since I got my Xiaomir Notebook Air 13″ 2016 version in last autumn. Still loving it, but oberserving the market of Chinese budget laptops has become a bit boring lately.

  8. Is there a chance the SSD is a sata III and the M.2 slot is still empty?

    • No don’t think so, Teclast also make their own (From parts) 2242 SSD’s and would use that. What I saw in the F6 Pro at least.

  9. Hi Chris,
    i’ve seen this vedio. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0VIIhs7UNM

    can u give me/us plez just a feedback about this issue?

    thanks a lot.

    • Oh wow, that shouldn’t be happening, some manufacturing fault on his unit something on the board or internals must be touching the outer frame. Mines fine. No shocks from the outer casing and this is the first I’ve seen of this issue. I haven’t seen it mentioned in the forum. That guy should get a replacement.

      • This adapter problem and I have it too.
        It is very unpleasant since you can feel the voltage with the touching the bare metal of the laptop with any soft skin (for example the back of the hand).
        At first I’ve thought it is because I use UK converter for the EU adapter shipped with the laptop.
        Then I tried with several other adapter and they also had such voltage leak! Including the adapter of my old laptop which I used for for year without noticing such issue … but it has plastic case!
        So I use it only on battery (charging over night).

    • I also experience high voltage on F7 body. It comes from the adapter. Can anyone else also test his adapter for high voltage on the outer contact (-)? I measure about 110 volts (luckily very low current few micro amps).

      Same on a Dell laptop, said its nothing to worry about.

  10. Hi Chris,

  11. Man, when in the he’ll are gemini laptops coming up. The processors have been anounced like 6 months ago. Wtf.

  12. yeah this is much better, real SSD there and also 128GB….

    • Yes makes sense they did this, good move. Others should do the same.

  13. You are damn right.
    128 GB SSD is faster than the emmc
    There is no emmc supplier lottery
    128 offers enough space for apps
    Data are in the cloud or on a 128 GB micro sd that syncs with free file sync.

    Good system, best of all.
    Good one – Bought one.

    Thx
