Hi Giovanni @thegiolly
For 196 Euros geekbuying currently has them on sale, even from European warehouses.
Seems to vary a lot from which warehouse you can get one, last night Germany was “in stock notice” only but you could order it from Italy and Spain, at the moment it seems to be the opposite.
I’m not sure if I want to get one. If they are already in Europe, I guess chances are higher that it’s an older version (TN panel vs IPS?), but I don’t know. But I’m also reluctant to get one from China, because it’s still a lottery and honestly I don’t expect it to be that much better than the 3 Pro – especially the erratic BIOS.
…..another reason why I’m hestitant is that I just ordered a Teclast F7, also not really sure about it’s display properties 😉

Thanks for the hint – the link was the problem.
In a public message to @thegiolly it was flagged as “an unappropriate word” that I used 😉

maybe interesting for some of you as well: I finally found a picture of an open 3L, see below.
Space for an SSD seems limited, I doubt that an 2280 will fit in there.
The guy who posted this said it comes with IPS….no guarantees whatsoever

This was the response I got from the Jumper official store a few days ago.. If it def is IPS they are not helping themselves!!February 26, 2018 at 11:28 am #93507Chris GKeymaster

Yes, it looks a lot like the same OEM Jumper and Teclast is using. Looking forward to the new F7, EZbook 3 Pro updates with Gemini Lake and hopefully one will use 8GB of RAM.

Just recieved a 3L Pro from Germany Geekbuying. When the courier gave it me I thought “uh oh” as the box had gaffer tape around the edges. Sure enough it was an TN panel and probably a return.
What is the score on Geekbuying sending out open box returns as new? I thought you had to advertise it as new or open box?
I’ve just set up a return ticket.May 26, 2018 at 3:23 pm #143340ChupaParticipant

I may have jumped the gun on the open box thing. Maybe they have to open the box to put the plug adapter in. Still I’m used to getting sealed stuff here in the UK. I’ve got feeling the IPS screens are an earlier batch. Maybe the oem made a mistake for batch of them.
I’m tempted to get the f7 but I have just put 18.04 on my current chromebook (which was running 16.04) and it runs a lot better so I’m not sure what do.May 27, 2018 at 10:53 am #143358ChupaParticipant

understanding how things work
You build a reasonable product and send it to the reviewers, you wait until you got some praising reviews.
Then with the big companies (ali Geekbuying, gearbest etc) they start a “price war” to sell the most units.
This is when they tell the manufacturer “you need to make it cheaper”.
Then your “as seen on youtube” pc arrives and the screen is different, or the keyboard or the track pad or or or
Happened to me too. They all told 3s has matte screen, as you can read on the link below mine certainly did not.
It comes with windows activated – mine did not
It has an IPS screen, I did not know then how to see the difference since my last more than 20 laptops had all the same kind of TN panel. But mine is TN.
I was unhappy with it, then I found a 3 pro clone from Thompson with a matte IPS screen. THEN I saw what the differences are.
I worked for some time with a Jumper reflective bright tn, T-BAO matte TN medium brightness and a Thompson matte IPS low brightness.
Where I work It is very bright, coastal Spain, huge windows towards the sun.
My favorite PC? Jumper, because of the brightness and the reflective screen – it proved to be superior in this kind of environment.
The matte screen in sunny surroundings catches the light more because of the matte scatter field from the screen and makes it harder to read.
Now in a light controlled environment it is quite different, I prefer the IPS.
