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

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Microsoft Surface Book 2 15 Inch 2 in 1 Notebook

The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is technically a tablet and a notebook, but at 15 inches, it isn’t exactly a handy to hold device, but it is surprisingly good. The video we have tonight is from Andrew over at AMDTech and is a full review of the Surface Book 2.

Of course this device has one huge downside and that is the astronomical price tag, but let us face facts folks, if you need a ton of processing power and like to do video editing and absolutely need to be able to draw on the screen with a stylus, well…yeah, it is certainly worth it.

We are looking at an 8th gen, Core i7 processor and an Nvdia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. Yeah, lots of muscle here!

The display is outstanding, the web cam is great and there just isn’t a lot one can say that is a big negative. Battery life is good, the keyboard and track pad are great.

Sure, I have zero need for one of these myself, but there are folks who visit this site that might want to know all about this device, so I am going to quit typing and get you folks right to that video!

That is all for right now, as usual check out our donations link if you find this site the least bit useful,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Teclast F7 Pro Notebook, UnBoxing And Initial Impressions

Teclast has put out a very decent 14 inch tablet with good specs and at a budget price. The video we have tonight is from Chris over at TechTablets and covers his initial impressions of the device.

Now I am still going to recommend the Chuwi LapBook Air, only because it has 8 GB RAM, more on-board storage and a back-lit keyboard, but if price is a major concern this one can be had at a reasonable price and will perform equally well.

The basic specs are as follows:

  • Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake CPU, Quad Core
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 14 inch IPS FHD display
  • SSD Expansion slot
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 64 GB eMMC 5.1 on-board storage
  • Great keyboard and track pad
  • WIFI: 802.11 ac

As far as pricing goes, I do suggest shopping around although I understand that if you use coupon code: TECLASTS$200-$10 that you can get this device for about $219!

So without any further babbling on my part, here is the video. Make sure to subscribe to the TechTablets site if this stuff appeals to you!

Remember, the Chinese retailers change prices constantly, so make sure to be patient, wait for flash sales and check multiple sites.

Always check BangGood.com and Geekbuying.com in addition to the Gearbest site.

That is all for now,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2018),Hands on Detailed First Impressions

Tonight we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets on the new version of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air for 2018.

This version sports most of the same hardware as last years model, with a few improvements such as the CPU. This one has the newer Intel Kaby Lake-R quad core CPU (8th gen) and is faster, much faster.

It also includes 8 GB ram in the unit in the video although I understand that there is a 16 GB RAM version coming soon.

It has a very nice 1920 x 1080 IPS display, decent speakers and a precision touch pad. In addition it offers 2 full size USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C 3.1 port for charging, data and video out and also a full size HDMI output port.

With 256 GB SSD storage and room for expansion this device is quite appealing.  This review also takes a peek at the internals and gives us some Geekbench scores and some thermals info. There will be a full review in roughly a week or so.

So I advise checking out the TechTablets channel and subscribing if you like this kind of tech info. So let us proceed to the video!

This one is available on Geekbuying.com currently at $959.99.

That is all I have for now,

Tim
