In Another Blatant Attempt to Get Folks To Visit This Site, We Are Allowing The Tablets To Speak!

Yes kiddies, the tablets here at HiBook Labs have insisted we allow them to offer up a greeting message and to tell their opinions on the web.

It might sound crazy, but these are not voices in my head, these are the actual voices of the HiBook and Hi12!

They don’t speak often but here is an example!

So the bottom line is, there is a greeting message on the right side of the site if you are using a tablet/PC, on a phone it will show in the first menu section below the posts.’

This is actually a new feature of WordPress in version 4.8 and rather slick. You can create the robotic voices at this site.

That is all for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe Notebook Review

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is a very premium device that comes with a rather premium price tag, but also with enough ports to be a functionally useful laptop/notebook.

The biggest negative on this device is the price tag since we are looking at a $1699 hit if you were to purchase one. But for some folks the quality and specs might just be worth the amount spent.

Below you will find the video from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews.

If this notebook sounds like it is right for you  it can be found at Amazon.com.

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Testing Session 2 With Linux Lite 3.0 on the HiBook

Yes kiddies, Linux on a VM inside Windows 10 on a Tablet!

Several days ago I mentioned installing a Linux Lite 3.0 VM, (Virtual Machine), onto the Windows 10 side of the Chuwi HiBook. It worked great but it gobbled up a huge chunk of available disk space.

So tonight I got the bright idea that since the microSD card on here is pretty much empty, why not try to run it from there?

At the present time (1950 hrs CDT) the install has completed and a restart is occurring. Installation took roughly 30 min and I set aside 15gb for the VM and as I am typing this it is up and running!

Current time: 20:29 hrs CDT: Linux installed and running on the microSD card and functioning perfectly! After the install and adding Chromium (the Linux Version of Chrome) we have 8.3 gb free of out of the 15gb I allocated for this VM.

Below are just a few shots of the available software on the stock install.

Yes, you can edit documents, spreadsheets and all that other office related stuff using LibreOffice

This is a great free operating system and will work on most older PC’s and laptops and yes, even on a Tablet in a VM.

A quick note here. Anyone can post a comment on this site or even register…

A1-Dont-Forget-to-Post.001So if anyone out there who has visited this site would like to contribute, please do so! It only takes about a minute to register and start posting as an editor.

Keep in mind that if you do register it would be a great idea if the site is running on the Asus (as it is as I post this) to leave me a quick message using the private messaging system, so that I can back this version of the site back up before going back to the Dragon Touch Tablet as a server. Otherwise your registration/profile will get lost in the shuffle, since I usually only back the site up from the DTX10.

Better yet, write a post, I will certainly notice it!

We Are Nearly 11 Months Into Using The HiBook As a Server And It is Still Great! :HiBook News Edition, Oh Hell 30?

So after almost 11 months of testing I have reached several conclusions on the Chuwi HiBook tablet. They are exactly what one would expect from a pretty damned great, better specs tablet these days and that is, if you want a great  10 inch class, Dual Boot, tablet, buy one of these!

I am uncertain if you can find the original HiBook like this one but the Pro is better has a better display and a larger battery. The 10.1 inch screen on the original version is bright and to be frank, quite stunning when watch movies! It has it glitches here and there, but over all it is an incredible buy if you can find one on a flash sale at either Gearbest or Banggood.

The battery life is good and it can easily function as a notebook if you get the add on keyboard or use a Bluetooth keyboard available almost anywhere. I do like the K480 Logitech,  but there are a lot of decent Bluetooth keyboards available these days. Grab yourself an OTG adapter and you can use any wireless mouse out there.

No it isn’t a gaming machine, although N.O.V.A 3 does work well in Android. But if you are buying a 10 inch tablet for gaming I personally think you need to get a life.

The HiBook is certainly not as nice as the Hi12, but it is lighter, the ram runs faster, (BIOS tweak), and it doesn’t have nearly as many glitches as the Chuwi Hi12 that I am typing this article on. The HiBook has a USB C port the Hi12 doesn’t. On the flip side the Hi12 has  2 full size USB ports, 1 x 2.0 the other 1 x 3.0.  I am not entirely thrilled with USB C because it means if you have some older devices to connect you need to have an adapter.

The bottom line is that I am totally happy with both of the tablets we have here for testing and  including any adapters  and the super fast ComFast WiFi dual-band adapter I purchased, I am still about  $500-700 dollars below the cost of a single MicroCrap or Apple product, and yeah Samsung also!

That is all for now,

Tim
