Jumper are pushing out yet another budget focused laptop, this time it looks more interesting than the EZbook 3 I reviewed. Why? Firstly it has a full metal build, so the lid and body are made out of alloy, so hopefully it will mean the keyboard is more firm without the flex the EZBook 3 has. Secondly, it will have 6GB of RAM, no doubt another piece of tech to use two Samsung LPDDR3 3GB RAM module...[Read More]
It’s been a while since we had a new release from Teclast, the last one I reviewed was the X5 Pro, now the X3 Plus is on the way.

It will be Teclast’s first Apollo Lake powered tablet. It’s another 2-in-1 with optional keyboard...[Read More]
An interesting notebook from Onda who I normally avoid for build quality issues, well at least in tablets. Called the Xiaoma 41, no not Xiaomi but Xiaoma as in Pony (Translated). Can’t help but feel they messed up on the name, what a stupid naming scheme from them! It’s very similar to the Chuwi Lapbook 14.1, the shame the exact same specs, Quad-core Intel, Celeron N3450, 4GB, 64GB e...[Read More]
The Chuwi Hi13 is the successor to the popular Hi12, it's built around a 13-inch 3000 x 2000 screen, with 267 PPI. It's the same screen used on the Microsoft Surface Book. It runs Windows 10, has 4GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC. Other specs include Type-C port, Wireless AC and 10000mAh battery. Optional keyboard dock and active stylus.
Voyo’s Vbook V3 now comes with the new Apollo Lake Celeron N3450 and a larger 12,000 mAh battery but is enough? The Core M3 version had a poor keyboard and thermal throttling. The Atom X5 Z8300 model had USB ports that couldn’t even power external hard drives. Well, the last two points have been fixed, it will power external hard drivers and thermals are good. But Voyo’s poor key...[Read More]
Finally got my hands on the second Chuwi Laptop, the Lapbook 14.1 this model is more impressive over the 15.6″ model I reviewed thanks to it’s new Apollo Lake Celeron N3450, 4GB of dual channel 1600Mhz RAM and the option to even add an SSD in there to expand storage and boost boot and system speeds. Wireless is handled by the excellent dual antenna Intel Wireless AC 3165 chipset with g...[Read More]
The Chuwi LapBook 14.1 is Chuwi's second laptop after the Lapbook 15.6. This model is 14.1-inches, so it's smaller and is powered by the new Celeron N3450 quad-core CPU, with 4GB of RAM. The build is similar to the larger LapBook 15.6, White high-quality plastic build with a black bezel and matte 1080p screen. This is a budget lapbook, due to sell for under $270 USD on release.
Update 5th Jan: Chuwi just posted this image on their Weibo account today. We can see it looks like a larger version of the Hi12. Transformer style dock confirmed, looks to be made out of metal and should have two USB ports both left and right. Thanks to David that brought this one to my attention, At CES 2017 in Las vegas (Due to kick off tomorrow) The Chuwi Hi13 will be officially announced by C...[Read More]
Onda’s Xiaoma 41 (Shouldn’t it be Xiaoma 14?) Notebook with a metal body and Celeron N3450 is now listed on GearBest, this looks like an interesting alternative to the Jumper EZbook 2 I reviewed a while ago. From the press photos, it looks decent, but you knew know till you receive it in person they can often differ drastically to the real thing VS the press images. The spec looks ago....[Read More]
