Okay, so we now have a 3rd 8GB’s of RAM Gemini Lake Celeron N4100 laptop. Hard to believe most are 4GB only after most Apollo Lakes are 6GB. This one is from T- Bao and it’s a larger 15.6″ laptop that some might be after with a dedicated number pad. I personally prefer 14″ or 13.3″ in size for these cheaper fanless laptops. The listing has only just appeared on Gearbest. Thanks, Travis T for the tipoff.
And well it looks a little cheap, a plastic build with a metal lid. Seen that before a few years ago, the thing that puts me off is the silver bezel around the outside. That should be matte black and yes, slimmer would look much better and also sell better. Another worrying factor is only an 8400mAh battery. So it won’t be able to go for a good 8-9 hours like my Chuwi Lapbook SE. More like 6 hours at best.
The spec is as expected, but good to see it also has ethernet, but 100MB, not gigabit?
- 8GB DDR4 2133Mhz
- Intel Celeron N4100 (2.4ghz max)
- 1080p 15.6″ IPS
- 128GB SATA3 SSD
- Intel Wireless AC, BT 4.1
- USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0
- VGA webcam (ouch!)
- MicroSD Card reader
- Number keypad!
- A large touchpad (Windows precision driver based?)
- Windows 10 Home
- $367 according to the listing.
Still, it has the 8GB of RAM many are after and if that price drops it might be okay? Should I review or skip this one. I might sit and wait if the price drops with the Novemeber sales. Really I’m just waiting for the 8GB Lapbook SE my current Gemini Lake favour laptop. I have even got it with me here in New Zealand on my holiday back home.
