The HiBook News: This Edition, Still Searching For The Perfect Notebook

As folks may have noticed I am really looking into getting another notebook. I have covered quite a few of them on here in recent posts and videos. However I am sort of beginning to  narrow my list down.

Price is of course a big concern, but so is RAM and a decent display. I am currently leaning towards a 13.3 or 14.1 inch notebook and my minimums are not all that restrictive since quite a few have made my “A” list.

My minimum specs are as follows:

  • 13.3 inch or larger Full HD 1080p display
  • An Intel Celeron N3450 processor
  • 6 GB RAM
  • SSD storage availability is a must
  • Good battery life is a must
  • Dual Band Wireless 802.11b/g/n/ac
  • Plenty of ports for a mouse/microSD and HDMI out

Those specs have eliminated a few devices from my list already such as the Chuwi LapBook 12.3. There simply is no point in getting a 12.3 inch notebook when the Hi12 is a mere 3 tenths of an inch smaller and has a great display and works well as a notebook when used with my Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard.

I have also eliminated the Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 device because it isn’t any bigger than the LapBook 12.3 and is does not have SSD expansion capabilities.

That of course has me down to the following notebooks:

Now by no means are the notebooks that I eliminated not good they are both  great, but for me they just don’t fit into what I need for work and they simply are not big enough to justify me spending the money on.

So that is the current list and where I am at right now, unless some kind soul would like to donate a small bundle of cash so I can get a few into my hands for serious testing. Or if folks actually clicked the ads and links here and bought a few of these items, that would help tremendously.

That is all I have for now. As usual this post was written on the Hi12 while the HiBook is the server today.
