Today’s Video Worth Sharing, Gaming on the Xiaomi Mi NoteBook Pro With The Core I7-8550U And 16 GB RAM

Previously we had the full review of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, 15.6 inch notebook and it is a very nice unit. Today’s video is once again from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the gaming performance on this device.

You can also find a review on the Core i5 version right here.

As I have stated many times, I don’t give a damn about gaming, but I do realize that many folks do and therefore I am sharing this video.

This one can be found at Geekbuying for about $1130. Over at Gearbest it is running a bit more.

That is all for now,

It Is a Bit Eerie That There Are Not a Zillion Articles Posted About the Nintendo Switch Tablet/Console

For months now the tech sites have inundated us with posts about the latest NoFriendo…oops, Nintendo gaming tablet/console which was released today and although I really don’t give a damn about games I would like to point out that at least as far as I can tell, it is already sold out at Walmart. However, I was waiting for the 8 bazillion articles on it…so far…lots of silence.

That is pretty much all I have to report, click the image above to see it full size, but it won’t change…it will be still sold out.

If this news is making you sad, I suggest getting a life…

This Afternoon’s Video Worth Sharing: Lenovo P2, 5.5 Inch Smartphone With a 5100mAh Battery!

Today we have another video review from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews on the Lenovo P2 smartphone. This is a very nice phone with an AMOLED display and a 5.5 inch display and a huge 5100 mAh battery.

The basic specs are pretty decent and the price is a very reasonable at roughly $200. See the coupon code at the end of this post to get it a bit cheaper! (at least for today)

Now of course I am glad to see a smartphone with a decent price and a battery larger than my BLU Studio Energy 2, which is far more important than minor details such as cameras and audio, etc.

So the specs are as list below:

  • Display: 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 Pixel 2.5D Arc screen
  • CPU: Snapdragon 625 Octa Core 2.0GHz
  • System: Android 6.0
  • RAM + ROM: 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Top 3 Budget Laptops/Notebooks For 2017

Today we have a short video from Chris over at TechTablets on the best 3 budget laptops/notebooks of 2017. Surprisingly all three of these are on my list for the perfect notebook for everyday use.

Personally I had already eliminated one from my list simply because the screen wasn’t large enough to warrant being a replacement for my Chuwi Hi12, since it is a mere 0.3 inches larger, albeit with a great hi-resolution display. But all three of the devices mentioned in the video are great, depending upon your needs and budget.

The 3 devices are:

  1. Chuwi LapBook 12.3, 12.3 inch hi-res display, 6 GB RAM
  2. Jumper EZBook 3 Pro, 13.3 inch FHD display, 6 GB RAM
  3. Chuwi LapBook Air, 14.1 inch FHD display, 8 GB RAM, back-lit keyboard

Obviously if price is your primary concern then the EZBook 3 Pro is the best choice at well under $250. If you need screen real estate and a back-lit keyboard then the LapBook Air is the clear choice.

All 3 devices offer easy SSD M2-2242 expansion slots and all three offer decent battery life.

Below you will find the video…

That is all for now,

Tim
