CUBE Thinker i35

Today we have a video on the Cube Thinker i35 laptop or if you wish notebook. Those terms are rather interchangeable these days. The Cube device is a 13.5 inch touch screen notebook with 256 gb of storage and 8 gb of ram. It comes with an Intel  M3 CPU and performs very well.

So lets get right to the video, courtesy of Andrew over at amdtechreviews.com.

This product is available for $649.99 on Banggood right now.

That is all for now,

Did Some More Testing on the ComFast Dual-Band Wireless USB Adapter Today, This Time on Windows 7

ComFast Dual-Band USB Wireless ac adapter

I figured I would try the ComFast  USB adapter on some old hardware and we have a classic at work. A Dell, Precision  M6300 laptop on Windows 7 that has built in wireless g. Yeah, about 54 mb/s on a good day.

But I thought, hey what the hell, the router in our shop is wireless n, so why not see if we can get a bit more speed out of the old Dell laptop? Now our router is one of those provided by the cable company and has a max connect of 72 mb/s, but it was still worth a quick test!

So I plugged in the adapter booted up and turned off the internal wireless and ran the setup program on the ComFast mini-DVD. In less than a minute I could see the highly annoying blue led and we were running just fine at a whopping 72.3 mb/s.

The bottom line here is that not only can one of these little adapters make your newer devices fast, it can be used with just about anything with a USB port to at least gain a bit of wireless speed on older hardware.

That is all for today,

Tim

Chuwi HiBook Pro Tablet Still on Sale at Chinese Retailer For $185

If you have visited this site at all you know that it runs for the most part on a Chuwi HiBook tablet. My version is the standard HiBook with the 1920 x 1200 display and a 6600 mAh battery.

Today however I noticed that Chinese retailer Banggood is offering up the Pro version for what I paid for the standard version last year. The HiBook Pro has a 2560 x 1600 display It also has the Z8350 processor which is a bit quicker and also has an 8000 mAh battery.

The other specs are the same as the standard version with a microSD card slot, a USB-C port, micro-USB port and a micro HDMI port. 4 GB ram, 64 GB eMMC on-board storage. Windows 10 and Android 5.1.

If you are looking for a really good, low-priced, 10 inch tablet you certainly will find the HiBook Pro hard to beat at only $185.

That is all for now,

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Initial Impressions of The Jumper EZBook 3 Pro Laptop

Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO

Today we have a video from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews.com. This one pretty much confirms that this laptop is a pretty decent device, as the previous video I posted about this product was also quite positive.

This is the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro with a fast processor and the ability to upgrade to an SSD drive. With an Intel Quad Core Apollo Lake N3450 CPU and 6gb of ram this is a pretty decent machine!

So without boring you to death with all the specs, here is the video!

That is all for now,

Did I Mention That The Comfast Dual Band USB Adapter Is Reversible?

Comfast-reversible adapter on the left, standard USB on the right.

The last few posts have covered the ComFast CF – 913AC Wireless USB Adapter but, although I covered speeds and battery life impact, I did possibly neglect one fact. Click the image above to compare a Comfast adapter with a standard USB flash drive adapter.

This adapter is reversible! Yep, works in a standard USB port no matter which way you plug it in! This kind of makes you wonder why USB-C is supposedly so cool? Seriously think about that. This is a normal, everyday, standard USB adapter and does the only thing that makes USB-C cool, with a standard adapter!

I am sure there are many other considerations, other than selling adapters and dongles which led us to USB-C, but…well, perhaps we are all a victim of a marketing ploy?

That is all for now,
