Hands-On With The KNote From AllDoCube

This is an odd release from AllDoCube (Cube) A tablet with the name note in it, yet it doesn’t support a stylus. The screen is a fully laminated one which is great to see. Can’t get enough fully laminated displays even at 1920 x 1080 and 11.6 inches it looks great but does lack on top end brightness somewhat topping out at 270 lux (White images). The build is slim, and as a result, it ...[Read More]

Chuwi Corebook To Get 8GB of RAM

Chuwi just recently posted on their twitter, if they pass $100,000 mark they will be upgrading for free the CoreBook’s RAM from 6GB to 8GB putting it then inline with competitors Core M3-7Y30 tablets. The current money raised is $80,000, so 20k short but I can see them reaching this goal. I hope the next move is to make the 128GB eMMC a SATA3 SSD instead, at least like what we have in the Cu...[Read More]

Mi Notebook Pro i7 8550U 16GB Version Reviewed

I’ve already reviewed the i5 8250U 8GB model of the Mi Notebook Pro, the RAM limit of 8GB (nonupgradeable) made me sell it and buy this model.
