Today’s Video Worth Sharing: T-Bao Tbook X85 Pro – Simply Not a Great Notebook/Laptop At All

Originally posted 2018-02-24 13:16:09.

Today we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets and as usual it is brutally honest and this particular device simply doesn’t fulfill any sort of niche whatsoever!

This is supposed to be a budget gaming notebook but fails on graphics, build quality and everything except the SSD drive.

But of course it might be of interest to some folks or then again, probably not.

On paper it appears to be an okay device, but when reality sets in, it just isn’t up to the task of gaming at all and that would be the only reason to even consider this notebook.

So a big thanks to Chris for pointing out all the shortcomings and being honest as to the faults on this one! Make sure to check out his YouTube channel for all kinds of great reviews on all sorts of tech stuff.

That is all I have for now except for the usual request to either register and write a post or to donate to this site,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2, UnBoxing And Review

Originally posted 2017-08-29 18:33:44.

Tonight’s video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews and is the usual very well done, thorough review of the HP EliteBook x360 1030 G2. This is a convertible laptop that offers some excellent specs and lots of nifty features.

This is one very solid convertible device and comes with plenty of ports and 8GB ram as tested with 128GB storage.

It really does offer a lot of bang for the buck considering the ports available and just how powerful it is.

Specs are as follows:

  • Screen Size: 13.3 inches
  • Display type: IPS FHD 1920 x 1080
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Storage: SSD 128 GB
  • OS: Win 10 Pro
  • WiFi: 802.11 a/b/c/g/n/ac (Dual Band)
  • Processor: 7th Generation Intel Core i5-7200U

So on that note let us get to the video!

I found this version on Amazon for $1149.24.

That is all for now,

Tim

Time Once Again For a Video Worth Sharing: Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, 15.6 Inch Notebook

Originally posted 2017-11-18 22:52:47.

We now have another review of the Mi Notebook Pro 15.6 inch notebook (okay you purists, laptop) This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews and as usual I highly recommend subscribing to his YouTube channel!

Sure we have had quite a few reviews on this one, but what the hell, one more full review is better than one too few.

This is a premium notebook with high end specs and considering the price, is a much better deal than many other high end  notebooks.

So all that being said, I will mention that you can find the other reviews I have posted by using the search function here or simply by selecting the category of videos on the left side of the screen if you are on a PC, so now let us get to the video…

 

You can find this product at this link.

That is all for now,

Tim

I Simply Must Test This Mini Laptop PC! GPD Win Pocket….a Good Server? Maybe….But We Need To Get Our Hands on One!

GPD Pocket

Occasionally I go back a and review posts and I don’t know why I never thought of this device as a potential test server!

Yeah we are are talking about the GPD Pocket Win 10 PC! The most likely reason is that it is far over-priced for what I will be using it for. But still, this device intrigues me!

Since the tiny notebook has 8 GB ram , 128 GB of on-board storage and a decent processor, ( the Z8750 Cherry Trail), it will easily run the tabletserver.com website once we get back on cable here.

Sure it is a bit out of date, but hell, it looks like it would easily do 8-10 hrs per day as a server of a WordPress site! In testing it gets roughly 7 hrs of use but as a web server we are not using up battery because the screen is on, so I am guessing at least 10 hrs minimum, perhaps more!

So if anyone wants to help out with the donations so we can test the crap out of this poor little tiny notebook, kick in some bucks, or if you have one send it on over for testing. I promise we won’t break it. In fact I am betting it might beat out the HiBook as a tiny server!

Here is a repeat of the full review on this mini notebook/laptop….

Oh wait, now I remember why I didn’t put this on my list to test, it is currently on sale at Gearbest for $509! But you could still send me one…

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Today’s First Video Worth Posting: How in The Hell Did We Get Here?

Originally posted 2018-05-06 00:13:25.

This one is from our new YouTube channel and basically gives some background history on how we ended up with this site and the other site I run over at Tim’s Tablet Web Site.

It covers the history as I remember it, although at times it may not be 100% accurate, but it is at least 99.5% accurate!

So watch the video, learn some history and then Like it, share it and subscribe!

That is all for this morning, except that eternal request for someone out there to donate!
