Conclusion:

So the main thing it’s got going for it is portability, being very light and thin. And mostly made of alloy. But it sacrifices too
much in the process. Only one port for charging and data. That’s just ridiculous if you ask me. No HDMI out, no MicroSD card slot not even a micro USB port. And we’re lucky they didn’t do an Apple and remove the 3.5mm audio jack like their latest mobile devices.

So the screen is quite a nice 1080p glossy panel. Good colors, blacks, and brightness.

The keyboard is good to type on with good key travel, the trackpad isn’t the best you’ll use and
it’s not supporting a single gesture. But it’s fast and accurate.

The color and those large screen bezels are a letdown. If Jumper had used a 12.5″ 1080p panel and smaller bezels it
would look much better.

The web camera is good only good lighting conditions, however, it can only record at 480p max and not HD. And the microphone works well with almost no static, but its location means you get feedback from the keyboard if in a skype call and typing at the same time for example.

Battery life and thermals are also great. So if you want a secondary notebook for portability over
everything else including partial USB ports, this worth a look. For everyone else that wants
connectivity best look elsewhere. The Jumper EZbook 2 is worth a look.
