Jumper’s Gemini Lake Celeron N4100 14″ laptop I reviewed gets a need screen upgrade, but just the screen it seems. In my Jumper EZBook X4 review, I said all Jumper needs to do is give it an IPS panel over the TN panel and bump the RAM from DDR4 4GB to 8GB. Well, at least it seems they are listing and the new EZBook X4 model now has an IPS panel, but still just the 4GB of RAM.
The EZBook X4 also has a backlit keyboard now, which is great at this price range. So what’s the cost of an upgrade from a TN panel to IPS? Well, it’s going for $329, so $30 USD more for the better screen. It’s worth it but what a shame they didn’t go a step further with 4GB of RAM more, I guess price point was the issue keeping it as close to $300 as possible.
The rest of the system is the same, thin and light metal build, Wireless AC, precision touchpad, good keyboard, 2 x USB 3 ports, 37Wh battery and a good 25% faster than the older Apollo Lake Jumper EZBook 3L Pro or 3 Pro. Make sure you catch my review of it below if you’re looking at this model.
