Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Top 3 Budget Laptops/Notebooks For 2017

Originally posted 2017-11-10 09:52:14.

Today we have a short video from Chris over at TechTablets on the best 3 budget laptops/notebooks of 2017. Surprisingly all three of these are on my list for the perfect notebook for everyday use.

Personally I had already eliminated one from my list simply because the screen wasn’t large enough to warrant being a replacement for my Chuwi Hi12, since it is a mere 0.3 inches larger, albeit with a great hi-resolution display. But all three of the devices mentioned in the video are great, depending upon your needs and budget.

The 3 devices are:

  1. Chuwi LapBook 12.3, 12.3 inch hi-res display, 6 GB RAM
  2. Jumper EZBook 3 Pro, 13.3 inch FHD display, 6 GB RAM
  3. Chuwi LapBook Air, 14.1 inch FHD display, 8 GB RAM, back-lit keyboard

Obviously if price is your primary concern then the EZBook 3 Pro is the best choice at well under $280. If you need screen real estate, more RAM and a back-lit keyboard then the LapBook Air is the clear choice.

All 3 devices offer easy SSD M2-2242 expansion slots and all three offer decent battery life. Please remember after Xmas these devices will have wildly fluctuating prices.

Below you will find the video…

That is all for now,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing! Chuwi LapBook Air Finally At A Good Price!

Chuwi LapBook Air

This is primarily a heads-up post to let folks know that the Chuwi Lapbook Air noteBook is finally down to a price most reviewers said it was worth!

It can now be found on Gearbest for the next 4-5 days at $350! That was the price many reviewers said it would be well worth it!

This device has a 14.1 inch full HD panel, and 8 GB RAM. It also sports a backlit keyboard and a microSD slot AND a hatch on the bottom to insert an M2 Sata 22.42 SSD drive!

There are plenty of other posts on this website concerning this but here below are the ones to read!

Here are a few other laptop notebook reviews that cover all of the ones I mentioned in the College Time Post.

Let us proceed on to the video, before Chuwi sells them all!

Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 in Notebook Gets My Attention: video

Chuwi Lapbook 14.1

Since tax time is approaching it is once again time to look at some new hardware. Now there isn’t a thing wrong with my Asus X553SA notebook, but this Chuwi Lapbook does look interesting.

No it isn’t bleeding edge, but it certainly has some positive features at a reasonable price. It is currently at $236 on Gearbest.com. The specs are very good and reviews I have seen are quite positive.

Most important to note here is the fact that the storage can be easily upgraded with an SSD drive.

The specs are listed below:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel APOLLO LAKE N3450
  • Core: 1.1 GHz, Quad Core  up to 2.2 GHz
  • 4 gb DDR3L ram
  • 64 gb onboard eMMC storage
  • microSD slot, up to 128 gb
  • Display: 1920 x 1080 IPS 14.1 inch.
  • 2 USB ports, 1 USB 3.0, 1 USB 2.0
  • 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack
  • Upgradeable to a SATA 3, M2242 SSD,

So the product does have some expansion options and below I have included a video review. You can find all the details right here.

Tonight’s First Video Worth Sharing: Daysky D-Book Pro Budget Gaming Notebook

Our first video tonight is from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the Daysky D-Book Pro notebook. This is a tablet that does have some gaming capabilities.

As any regular visitor here knows I really don’t care about gaming, but if you are into this stuff, then here is the info!

The basics are as follows:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 OS
  • Intel Celeron N3450 Quad Core 1.1GHz, up to 2.2GHz
  • NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU
  • 6GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • 1920 x 1080 (FHD)  Display (IPS)
  • SSD Slot to make it a bit faster and expand storage

This is by no means a terrible notebook, but there are a lot better ones out there if you are really into gaming. I will put a link in near the end of this post, but, if you need a decent , lower cost 14.1 inch notebook then I still suggest the LapBook Air or Jumper EZBook 3 Pro.

So now we move on to the video.

This device is available on Gearbest for $396 as of this posting. As usual, be on the lookout for flash sales.

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Teclast F7, 14.1 Inch Notebook, Full Review

This afternoon we have a full review on the Teclast F7 notebook from Chris over at TechTablets. This one is an Apollo Lake N3450 powered 14.1 inch notebook with 6 GB of RAM and is quite the competent device.

No it isn’t the fastest or best notebook out there, but yes it is priced reasonably and has decent specs and battery life is good.

It has the following features (all the specs are in the video):

  • Celeron N3450 Processor
  • 1920 x 1080 (FHD)  IPS display
  • 64 GB on-board eMMC 5.1
  • microSD slot
  • SSD slot to add a Sata 3,  M2242 drive.
  • Excellent Cooling Properties

Currently it is available from several vendors but at a price much higher than mentioned in the video, the best being on Geekbuying at $295. So you might want to keep on the lookout for flash sales since it was available at one time for $219.

I am still thinking that the Chuwi Lapbook Air is a superior notebook, in this class, except the price on this makes it super tempting. Yeah, I just like the extra RAM on the Chuwi and the back-lit keyboard.

So I will leave it up to you to decide and here is the promised video.

That is all I have for now,

Tim
