We Are Going To Be Giving Away The HiBook Tablet! We Just are Not Sure Of The Method…Yet

Yes folks, the HiBook tablet has been tested in all sorts of ways here at HiBook Labs and we are simply out of things to test on it!

We have installed Linux on it, edited videos on it, run a server off of it for over a year and a half  in a VM AND in Android and also watched hundreds of movies and TV shows on it!  Personally I love this thing, but it does sit around lately not being used too often and it still works perfectly!

So I have decided to do some sort of giveaway to someone who really could use a handy 10.1 inch, dual boot, Windows 10/Android tablet in perfect working order.

Of course the test facility here at HQ will continue to be called HiBook Labs for the foreseeable future, so do not panic! But the nature of the giveaway will be determined by those who choose to register on this web site and actually come up with a suggestion or two!

Why yes, “what a novel idea you are thinking, I could write a post on this site and perhaps influence the outcome/method of this giveaway”.

Of course if you register and do not login or post, yeah, you get terminated, if you post a bunch of links (URL’s) you get removed. Simple enough?

Make sure you are registering on tabletserver.com and not another site that this may be shared with! (yes this will be shared on my other site, so just making sure you are registering for the correct web site!)

That is all I have at this time, register and write or suggest, no comments please, since most folks screw those up and they get dumped by the security protocols.

Since This Is The Tablet Server I Thought I Would Mention That The HiBook Pro Is Only $169!

Of course we all know that the first generation HiBook is a great tablet. After all I am running this server on it and after a year it still kicks ass! Of course I wish I bought this version, but I didn’t…crap!

However the HiBook Pro version is still available dirt cheap from Banggood.com for a mere $169! Of course I have no idea  how long this price will last, so I would  jump on it right now if you want a hi-res 10.1 inch tablet!

Obviously I am a bit biased but you can also do a search on this site to so see a few reviews.

That is all for now,

Tim

Tonight, We Have Another Video Worth Sharing! This one on The Cube iWork1X Tablet

Cube iwork1x 2 in 1 Tablet PC

So as I did laundry tonight I had nothing to do except surf the web a bit and I once again ran across a video worth sharing! This one is about a month old, but this looks like a decent Tablet PC/Keyboard combo.

I will let you folks be the judge and make sure to subscribe to the channel it is on so you can get notifications of the latest reviews from Andrew over at AMDtech.

This is an 11.6 inch tablet with a full HD IPS display and you can find it on Gearbest,com.

Here is the video…as promised it the subject/title,

What Else Does The Tablet Server Do? By Golly It Hosts Development Web Servers!

While the site I used all day today has been deleted, the tablet server did host a development server for another site I work on.

The very fact that I had a few spare gig to play with allowed me to test about 20 different themes and finally a few plugins that allowed me to fix the issues that needed updating on that particular site.

So not only does a tablet make a nice server for expounding on the wonders of tablets, but it makes a great development server for other sites.

Not something I had ever considered previously, but it sure did make my job easier today.

What I ended up doing was adding a super nifty slider to this site! So in the end, you can consider using your tablet as a WordPress dev server. Just pointing that out…

Did a Little More Benchmark Testing on My Devices Today.

BLU Studio Energy 2 Results

Last night and this morning I ran some tests on all the platforms I have here at HQ, yes even my smartphone got tested.  I ran them all on Geekbench 3 just out of curiosity and there were no real surprises.

The tests were all run in 32 bit mode since the budget here doesn’t allow for purchasing the 64 bit license, but the results should be indicative of overall comparative speeds either way.

In every case the single core tests ran just about as expected with the BLU Energy2 phone at the bottom of the list, but it also has the slowest processor speed at 1.3GHz. Top of the list for single core testing was the Dell Optiplex PC which was also expected because it is clocked at 2.66GHZ. The Chuwi HiBook was next followed by the Asus X553SA notebook, which seems to not follow logic, because the Asus is actually clocked at 1.6Ghz, versus the 1.44GHz on the HiBook, but the Atom X5 processor can clock up to 1.8Ghz, so this might be the case. The single core scores are list below:

  • Dell Optiplex 745 – 1417
  • Chuwi HiBook – 728
  • Asus X553SA –  685
  • BLU Energy2 – 607

Next we have the multi core scores and there is a bit a change here. The clear winner was the Chuwi HiBook, probably because 4 cores are better than 2. The Optiplex came in well below the Chuwi in second place. Next was the BLU Studio Energy2 phone followed by the Asus X553SA in last place. The scores are listed below.

  • Chuwi HiBook – 2128
  • Dell Optiplex 745 –  1920
  • BLU Energy2 – 1655
  • Asus X553SA – 1516

So overall the results basically follow CPU speed and it is the most important in single core processing and then multi core processing with  4 versus 2 cores is always going to win the day. Below are screen shots of the results, click for full size images (the BLU phone is at the top of the article.
