Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Onda Xiaoma 31, 13.3 Inch Notebook

This video comes to us from Chris over at Techtablets and covers the Onda Xiaoma 31 which seems to be an okay notebook, although a bit pricey. It features the Apollo Lake  Pentium N4200 processor along with 4 GB of RAM.

It has a few other nice features which I have listed below:

  • Fingerprint Reader on the Touchpad
  • Metal build
  • Full HD 1920 x 1080 display
  • Wireless ac (dual band)
  • Easy Access to add an SSD

So let us get to the video!

Keep in mind that there is also a version with the Celeron N3450 processor for about $60 less at this link.

That is all for now,

Why My Desktop PC Is So Great!

Yes. I host this web site off of a tablet, in fact at this very moment, a Chuwi HiBook 10.1 inch tablet. But when I am at home I use my Zotac along with my ancient Dell monitor to edit and at the very same time host a few web sites!

So today I went to a website that compares processors and surprisingly the Zotac Ci323 with a Celeron is roughly comparable to the Intel N3450 based stuff,  (namely the Ci327 version)!

Now of course I have been totally amazed with this product since the day I set it up , wow! So I was thinking of upgrading it to the Ci327 but considering the test results below and the current performance, the conclusion is NO. Sure if you want a fan less PC, I would highly recommend the Zotac Ci327 but you will be just as satisfied if you can find a Ci323 out there.

So here are the CPU results..

The HiBook News: Edition 8000! Ok, Perhaps Not, But Today’s Subject Is Somewhat Important!

So as I begin writing this post on the Hi12 I really have no clue where it is going. Sure enough later this evening I will test it using OpenShot for Windows.

Of course I have no doubt it will work just dandy, although a bit slower than the Zotac Nano PC, but that is to be expected considering the difference in processors.

The whole idea here however is to see if an Atom X5 can do this. Of course if you have cheeked the welcome message on the right side of this site you would already know that the HiBook tablet thinks it can do this, so I expect more negative  chatter from the HiBook later today.

So at this moment, we are awaiting my arrival at HQ, so I can do a video on the Hi12 and add an audio track and perhaps a transition or three. Obviously pushing a tablet to its limits is the point here so I guess we have to also do it on the HiBook also, so there may well be 2 videos in this post.

Now having arrived home I shot a video or 3 or the BLU Energy 2 smartphone and also downloaded a bit of music. I created a project, imported the files onto the Hi12 and into the Openshot project and of course I was pushing the tablet to its limits and the result was a dismal failure!

Like all things on the Hi12, if the ram gets pushed a bit and I forget to set the screen timeout to a long enough period I simply can’t wake the screen. This is an ongoing issue with my Z8350 version of this tablet and I simply can’t update the BIOS at all, because it will not even let me change the boot order hence ZERO chance of updating the BIOS.

So try number 2:  I set the screen timeout to be 1 hr and all appears to have worked rather well. It isn’t a fancy super video, just what I do for the cars we sell at work each day. Incidentally, it processed the 4 min video in roughly 6 min. About twice the time that the Ci3123 took to do a similar video. Perhaps later I will repeat this test on the HiBook, but it is a bit busy being the server today.

And for those folks who choose not to view the full website, here is the HiBook Tablet’s take on this video edit…

That will be it on the video front for today…I hope.

Another Video Worth Sharing: The Huawei Matebook E, Unboxing and Initial Impressions

The Huawei Matebook E is a premium, 2 in 1, 12 inch, Tablet/notebook that has some excellent specs and offers a few variants.

There is a Core M3 version with 4GB ram, 128 GB SSD and there is also a higher end Core i5 version with twice the ram and storage space.

The specs are good, the display is excellent and of course the price is a bit steep. But you are getting some goodies with it such as the keyboard and case being included along with a fingerprint sensor  and a very nice build quality.

So let us get to that video, which comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews

This product is available on Amazon starting at about $799.

That is all for now,
