Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Another Pretty Good Review Of The Chuwi LapBook Air

I am a huge fan of the notebook in this review and I will eventually be purchasing one. This review comes to us from Linus on the TechLineHD channel on YouTube.

He seems to be a very honest and straightforward reviewer and does point out the shortcoming of the device as well as all the reasons you might want to get your hands on one of these.

This notebook is still on sale at Banggood for roughly $380 so make sure to visit their site to see current pricing.

Be aware this is not a Dell or HP or Lenovo, but also be aware that the money you would save for a useful notebook over those high-end brands can get you a 256 GB SSD and perhaps a few hundred more in gasoline to fuel your car to get to work each day.

As I always try to do when sharing a video, I recommend this channel and I would highly suggest subscribing if you like this kind of tech info that is darned honest and gets to the point without the frills.

So all of that being said below you will find the video.

That is all for now,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Dell XPS 13 (2018) Notebook Full Review

Tonight’s video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers, in detail, the new Dell XPS 13 that was just released.

The new model is thinner and lighter than last year’s version and in the case of this review comes with a 4K display.

Of course that thinner, lighter stuff means less  space to cram stuff under the hood. So the battery is a bit smaller and gone is a full size SD card slot and also gone are the full size USB ports.

On the other hand we get 3 USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and we at least get a USB-C to full size USB adapter dongle in the box.

We have an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and 8 GB of RAM along with a relatively quick 256 GB SSD.

So all the above being said, check out the video, subscribe to Andrew’s channel if you like this tech stuff and want honest reviews.

That is all for now,

Tim

Chuwi LapBook Air Still On Sale At BangGood: Excellent Budget Notebook At A Fair Price

I just thought I would point out that BangGood.com still has the Chuwi LapBook Air on sale for about 2 more days at $379!

Sure that is a bunch for a budget Apollo Lake N3450 based notebook, but if you need a 14.1 inch screen (FHD) that is fully laminated, 8 GB of RAM and a back- lit keyboard then this one is the ticket!

You can watch the video I shared a few weeks back showing off the 3 best budget laptops/notebooks right here.

Obviously it all comes down to what you need. All 3 of the notebooks I linked in the video above are great and all three are expandable via an M.2 SSD slot. While the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro is considerably cheaper, that is for the 64 GB onboard storage version, with a smaller screen, while the Chuwi LapBook Air sports a reasonably fast 128 GB eMMC on-board. Now if you throw in a 128 GB SSD M.2 you suddenly have a very respectable 256 GB storage, in addition to the microSD card slot.

No, none of those mentioned in the link above are gaming laptops and they are not going to be super fast with processor intensive apps but if you just need to use it for documents, web surfing, photo editing, the the LapBook Air will get the job done for hundreds less than a Dell or a Xiaomi or a Huawei, etc.

You might see the links in the ads on this site but make sure to use this one to find the Banggood site, since I still am running ads for Gearbest, since prices vary wildly from week to week.

That is all I have for now,

Tim

This Afternoon’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review Of The Dell XPS 13 (2017) Notebook

The Dell XPS 13 is undoubtably one of the better 13.3 inch notebooks available these days and even has a new refresh coming out very shortly.

But the 2017 model is no slouch, with the 8th gen Core-i5 CPU and 8 GB ram and either a touchscreen or a hi-res non-touch display.

The video we are sharing today covers the Core i5 version with the touchscreen FHD display. This one is from Andrew over at AMDTech and will cover all the different variants but primary concentrates on the Core i5/8 GB RAM version.

The battery life on this device are absolutely fantastic, making it a great choice as a lightweight all day notebook.

So let us proceed to that video right now.

That is all for now,

Tim

Another Very Interesting Low Cost Notebook: The Jumper EZbook 3SE 13.3 inch

The Jumper EZBook 3SE seems like the soluton for those who just are in need of a fast, light, 13 inch notebook for basic applications and maybe some web browsing and YouTube, etc. At a mere $169 currently on Geekbuying this is really a nice little home notebook for the kids to play with or if you simply need a PC on the go.

This seems to be a nice device with a few downsides such as only having a max WiFi of wireless “n” speeds, but those speeds are pretty darn quick enough for most folks. The other drawback is the lack of an SSD port to upgrade storage, but if you install an microSD card with 128GB you would have a total of roughly 150 GB free. This should suffice for basic use and office documents, etc. After all, my home PC running Win 10 Pro with a 240 GB SSD still has 127 GB free after 1 year of use.

So here is a basic overview of the specs:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 Home OS
    Windows 10 brings back the popular Start Menu from Windows 7 and introduces new features, like the Edge Web browser that lets you mark up Web pages on your screen
  • Intel Apollo Lake N3350 Quad Core 1.1GHz, up to 2.4GHz
  • 13.3 inch FHD IPS Screen with 1920 x 1080 Resolution
  • 3GB DDR3 RAM for Advanced Multitasking
  • 64GB eMMC Storage Capacity
  • Camera for Photos and Face-to-face Chat
  • 2.0MP front camera let you capture memorable moments or chat with friends
  • Bluetooth 4.0 Interface Syncs with Compatible Devices

Now I’ll be damned if I can find even a single video review of this exact product, but I am going to add the review of the EZBook 3S here, but keep in mind that this one has an IPS screen, is a 13.3 inch IPS display but sports only 3 GB RAM and processor is a dual, not quad core.

 

That is all for now,

Tim
