Today’s Video Worth Sharing: What To Do With An LT 2016u Netbook?

Gateway LT2016u

This video comes to us from none other than….US! I am sorry, the video is rather long and a bit rambling, but it does show that even some old equipment may be useful for something.

I actually got up very early this morning and brought along my trusty flash drive and got a newer version of Firefox to work on this ancient dinosaur! So we now have a functional Windows XP, (32 bit) spare PC for use as, uh, well, perhaps a web browsing device.

However with the 1024 x 600 display, we are not talking a great experience. The speakers also stink but if you plug in some external one the sound is excellent.

But hopefully folks will leave some comments on the YouTube channel suggesting to us what this thing might be good for. After all, a functional 10.1 inch notebook (yeah, I know, netbook), with WiFi, 3 full size USB 2.0 ports and reasonable battery life, along with a surprisingly huge hard drive (160 GB), is simply not something to toss in the trash.

So below you will find the video, sorry I sound tired but it was about 1 AM when I finally had reached my conclusions on what to do with this thing…

Tonight’s First Video Worth Sharing: The Chuwi Hi9 Air 10.1 Inch Tablet

This short unboxing and review comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the Hi9 Air which is supposedly a gaming tablet.

It has a great screen resolution, although not as bright as the mfg claims and it sports a decent 8000 mAh battery, but it does have its flaws.

As far as I am concerned, my HiBook is just as good as this device, but, I don’t play games, so that makes me rather biased. Hence the reason I am sharing this with you folks who do play games and are concerned with this info.

Chris is going to be the next reviewer I talk about on our new channel, because of his ability to engage the audience, nit-pick the living crap out of a device, whether it be a smartphone, tablet, notebook or a mini PC.

So without further into, let us proceed at once to that video! As always, make sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel!

A Very Decent Tablet With a Pretty Good Price! Lenovo Tab 4 Plus (video)

The Lenovo Tab 4 Plus is a pretty decent tablet, especially considering the current price of only $254 with Wifi and LTE ! Incidentally the specs on the Amazon site are not even close to correct.

It offers a decent screen resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels, Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 processor, Android 7.1 and a promised 20 hours of battery life (although I would realistically expect closer to 10 hours).

It also has microSD expansion for more storage and looks pretty darn nice!

This is perfect for media consumption or as a kids tablet. The price is right and Lenovo puts out some realy good tech!

Here is a pretty good short unbox/mini review I found on it today…

That is all I have at this time,

Tim

The HiBook News: OBS Studio Running on a HiBook? Can This Be Real?

Infinity Screen Captures?

Today I ran across a video on YouTube about running OBS Studio on an old, low powered tablet PC called a HiBook! I said to myself, well this can’t be true, but then I remember of course it is!

After all it was me who spent literally hours, to finally get OBS to work on High End Cheap Tech!

So after about a few dozen tries, I figured out how to get a decent screen capture (display capture) video on OBS on a supposedly obsolete/under-powered tablet.

The best part is, after shooting this in two segments, I edited the video on the very same, lowly X5 Z8300 Intel Atom tablet.  Yes, Openshot failed to add a transition at one point, but I’ll take success over disdain anytime!

The video below will mention how to remove background noise and show you that sometimes hardware decoding can get the job done even when you are saying to yourself, “hardware decoding, are you fuc&%$g kidding me?”

That’s all for now kiddies, maybe later I will try this again on the HI12? Leave a comment on YouTube if you want me to try it also!

Just Another Decent Tablet I Ran Across on Gearbest This Evening. Cube iWork10 Flagship Tablet PC

Originally posted 2017-03-22 19:52:27.

The Cube iWork 10 Flagship is another dirt cheap 10.1 inch tablet that you may want to consider. It is priced at a mere  $150 or roughly $199 if you want to get the keyboard.

Those are fairly stellar prices for a 10 .1 inch table with the following specs:

  • OS: Android 5.1, Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Cherry Trail X5-Z8300 Quad Core 1.44GHz ( up to 1.84GHz )
  • Screen resolution: 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)
  • 4 gb DDR3L Ram
  • 64 gb on-board storage
  • microSD slot supports up to 128 GB
  • USB-C port
  • micro USB port
  • Micro HDMI out
  • WIFI: 802.11b/g/n wireless
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Battery Capacity(mAh): 7000mAh

If you are like me and run a Bluetooth keyboard this becomes very attractive.

Below you will find a video review, keep in mind this tablet has been around for quite awhile…

That is all for this evening,

Tim
