Chuwi’s Aerobook Core M3 Laptop Updated With Type-C USB 3.1

After reaching their stretch goal on Indiegogo, Chuwi’s crowd-funded Aerobook a13.3″ laptop has been updated to now included a full spec type-C port. So this means, power, data and video output. A move which I’m sure most will be happy with, I hope there will now be a new stretch goal to include at least the Core M3-7Y30 or better yet the Core M3-8100Y? (Chuwi?) But the Core M3 6...[Read More]

Core i9 8950HK Mini PC – A Beast of A PC Smaller Than A PSU

If you caught my review of the Coffee Lake Core i7 8750H Aliexpress mini PC, this is very similar. Exactly the same design, cooler, PSU and build all except for the CPU. This has the quick Core i9-8950HK and being a K series CPU just like the desktops it’s unlocked and overclockable. Like the 8750H it has the 6 cores, even if it’s badged as a Core i9 it’s not a true Core i9 but s...[Read More]

Teclast F15 Hands-On First Impressions

We finally have a large 15.6″ Gemini Lake laptop. And quality one from Tecalst, fully laminated OGS screen 1080p IPS screen, a backlit full-size keyboard including a number pad. For a 15.6″ laptop it’s slim because it’s not actively cooled but passively so no loud fan or having to worry about blocking any fans and later them filling up with dust. Teclast F15 Hands-on Video ...[Read More]

Powerful $400 Six Core Intel Core i7 8750H Mini PC Review

This is what the site is about finding those value for money items that are a great value, a good bang for your buck. After the Core i5 8250U mini pc I reviewed that had power current and limit throttling I was worried about forking out $400+ USD for an even more powerful Intel Core i7 8750H mini PC, but this one is a true gem and in many aspects surprised me mostly its great fan noise (complete l...[Read More]

Horrendous

Voyo After Sales is bad

I won’t get a Voyo if I were you. I will forever say this whenever I find anything they sell online. Their after sales is a gimmick. They converse but the goal is for you to give up asking for support. The devices they ship out will break in a few months leaving you a brick.   Either the power switch breaks. Then later on the keyboard. Never buy a Voyo. You’ve been warned  

Teclast F7 Plus Copper Heatsink Mod. A Must If You Want to Tweak Power Limits

The Teclast F7 Plus review has been out for a while now, it’s one of the best if not the best Gemini Lake laptop. And one with 8GB of RAM  unlike the Lapbook SE which has only 4GB. Thermals under the stock TDP (Power Limit) are perfectly fine, but if you’re like me you always want to push the absolute maximum out of your tech. Then this mod here which I’ve been doing for years is...[Read More]

Chuwi Lapbook SE 64GB eMMC Model Now $270

One of my favorite Gemini Lake laptops along with the Teclast F7 Plus is the Lapbook SE. The 32GB eMMC + 128GB SSD models seem to have been phased out and now Chuwi sells only a new 64GB eMMC 5.1 model which means no 128GB SSD. But the slot is still there for upgrades. No other changes to the laptop, so still no sign of the 8GB DDR4 version. You can find the new model listed here on Gearbest for $...[Read More]
