Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: A Comparison of the Mi NoteBook Air 2016 and 2017 Models.

The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air is a premium laptop/notebook and offers excellent performance. Bu it has been upgraded just a bit this year to include the Intel  Core i5 Kaby Lake processor that has a bit higher clock speed.

Both of these are excellent notebooks and  they both are well over my budget, but they are both a helluva lot cheaper than a Dell/Mac/etc.

So without further into below you will find the video!

 

That is all at this time,

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,

First Possible 12 inch Tablet on My List, Chuwi Hi12. Video

1-gearbest-hi12So as I search for the newest mobile device to test we are now looking at the Chuwi Hi12. The specs are great, and of course I won’t need a keyboard or a microSD card because I already have those.

Obviously if I go with this tablet or anything larger than 10.1 inch I will be getting a case/stand for it, but those are much less expensive than a keyboard.

The specs are as follows:

  • Intel Atom X5-Z8350 Quad Core at 1.44 GHz (up to 1.8 GHz)
  • Fantastic display at 2160 x 1440
  • USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports
  • WiFi /b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0
  • 4 gb Ram
  • 64 gb onboard storage
  • microSD up to 128 gb
  • 5 mp rear camera, 2 mp front shooter
  • 11000 mAh battery

Below is a short video review I found…

That about covers it for this evening,

The HiBook News: This Edition, New WLAN Drivers and General Info

This week’s HiBook News edition covers much of what was already posted in the last few posts. The most important being that I did manage to update the WLAN drivers on both the HiBook and the Hi12.

The update was easy to install and so far appears to have cured the occasional issues that the WLAN chip suffered, which was simply dropping out of existence and requiring a reboot.

This really isn’t a problem on the Hi12 because I generally use the handy ComFast dual-band (ac) USB adapter and it has no issues and the Hi12 battery doesn’t suffer like the HiBook does when running it.

Now on to a bit of good news about prices on the HiBook Pro model, which has the larger battery and the super hi-res 2560 x 1600 display. This one with the Z8350 processor is on sale at Banggood for a mere $180! That is a great price for this device!

Other than the above news I do not have much else to report, although it would be super if a few folks would register and post an article, or don’t register and post a comment or 5….just leave out any URLs or the system will auto dump it.

Oops, one last item, make sure to listen to the short welcome message in the right sidebar. These tablets crack me up sometimes.

That is all for now,

Tim
