If you’re like me and you want the maximum performance out of your Gemini Lake Laptop. Then you might like this image I created for the Chuwi Lapbook SE this will also work on the EZbook X4. It uses only 900Mb of RAM on first boot and has just 13 background processes running. It’s stripped of all Windows 10 bloatware, Metro app and even Windows defender (Install your own Anti-virus) It’s designed to get the best performance out of Windows 10 on limited hardware like these 4GB Celeron N4100 laptops.
With this image Windows 10 runs much, much faster it feels like it’s not a 14nm Gemini Lake CPU but more like a Core M3 and also runs a little longer on the battery ( Aprox 5% more due to less RAM use).
But be warned this isn’t for everyone, advanced users ONLY. Remember no Windows metro apps, no Edge, IE11, Windows Store or Windows Defender.
Note: It will work on any x64 CPU PC like the Apollo Lake N3450 Teclast F7 or Jumper EZbook 3 Pro. But you’ll need drivers for those models. This image has the Gemini Lake drivers installed for Lapbook SE & others.
