BMAX is one of the new brands I’m keeping an eye on and this is another late Gemini Lake release from them. The BMAX S15 is a larger 15.6″ laptop with a Celeron N4100 quad-core, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, 256GB N.2 2280 SSD and runs Windows 10 home. The screen looks like it might be a matte coated 1080p IPS. But I can’t confirm this from the info provided, it could well be glass-covered like the BMAX X14. I hope not!
The laptop has a full-sized edge to edge keyboard, huge touchpad and looks fairly good in dark grey. Your standard BT 5.0, Wireless AC, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, Mini HDMI 2.0 output and MicroSD reader. But it’s lacking a full spec Type-C port as seen on the BMAX X14 and Y13. The battery is again common, 38WH which is a shame considering they would have the room with a large 15.6″ laptop to give us over 50Wh which would mean 10 hours or over run time. But if it’s like the Teclast F15 it should run for 8 hours+.
The BMAX S15 is 1.8 kilos and 20mm thick. So not the slimmest or lightest, but it is 15.6-inches. Banggod has it listed for
$299 currently $269.99 with free shipping if you use coupon BGBMXS15 (Thanks Inhalt). I’m not sure I’ll review this one, kinda done with Gemini Lake laptops but if you do want to see it covered please let me know. I might be able to get one sent to me from a retailer since it’s not super expensive.
Edit: Now we found a good coupon for it the $269.99 price is very decent. If it has a matte screen, great keyboard, and touchpad for light computing and you can live without Type-C it might be a good laptop. I will have to get one to find out.
