The HiBook News: This Edition, Still Searching For The Perfect Notebook

As folks may have noticed I am really looking into getting another notebook. I have covered quite a few of them on here in recent posts and videos. However I am sort of beginning to  narrow my list down.

Price is of course a big concern, but so is RAM and a decent display. I am currently leaning towards a 13.3 or 14.1 inch notebook and my minimums are not all that restrictive since quite a few have made my “A” list.

My minimum specs are as follows:

  • 13.3 inch or larger Full HD 1080p display
  • An Intel Celeron N3450 processor
  • 6 GB RAM
  • SSD storage availability is a must
  • Good battery life is a must
  • Dual Band Wireless 802.11b/g/n/ac
  • Plenty of ports for a mouse/microSD and HDMI out

Those specs have eliminated a few devices from my list already such as the Chuwi LapBook 12.3. There simply is no point in getting a 12.3 inch notebook when the Hi12 is a mere 3 tenths of an inch smaller and has a great display and works well as a notebook when used with my Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard.

I have also eliminated the Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 device because it isn’t any bigger than the LapBook 12.3 and is does not have SSD expansion capabilities.

That of course has me down to the following notebooks:

  • The Chuwi LapBook 14.1, which meets almost all the requirements and is dirt cheap. It does lack the 6 GB RAM but 4 GB is probably more than I really need. I did a comparison post between this one and the LapBook 12.3 a few weeks back.
  • The Jumper EZBook 3 Pro which is priced very reasonably and has the 6 GB RAM.  It has all the requirements I listed above and has done well in reviews!
  • Last on my current list is the new Chuwi LapBook Air which has some killer specs with the 8 GB RAM and a fully laminated screen. However this one is only a want until I see some reviews on it. At this point we don’t know how it actually performs when it comes to the display and battery life.

Now by no means are the notebooks that I eliminated not good they are both  great, but for me they just don’t fit into what I need for work and they simply are not big enough to justify me spending the money on.

So that is the current list and where I am at right now, unless some kind soul would like to donate a small bundle of cash so I can get a few into my hands for serious testing. Or if folks actually clicked the ads and links here and bought a few of these items, that would help tremendously.

That is all I have for now. As usual this post was written on the Hi12 while the HiBook is the server today.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review Of The Jumper EZBook 3 Plus

Our video today covers the full review of the Jumper EZBook 3 Plus. This is a fairly decent notebook but does have one major flaw and that is the TN display, (click here for more info on display types).

However if you are just looking for processing power and RAM and an easily upgradeable storage solution, then this might be what you are looking for.

The short list of specs are as follows:

  • Intel Core M3 7Y30  processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 128 GB SSD (Upgrade M2 slot on bottom of notebook)
  • WiFi b/g/n/ac dual band
  • microSD slot
  • 2 full size USB 3 .0 ports
  • 1920 x 1080 display, 14 inch

Overall this is a decent notebook for productivity or school. It certainly isn’t a gaming notebook, but it can do real work.

So let us get to the video from Chris over at TechTablets and see what he has to say.

This notebook is available for about $429 at this link.

That is all for now,

Tonight We Have Another Video Worth Sharing: Jumper EzBook 3 Plus Unboxing And Hands On

This video covers the EZBook 3 Plus, which is actually a slight upgrade from the EzBook 3 Pro in that it has the Intel Core M3 processor instead of the Apollo Lake N3450.

This one comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets, so make sure to subscribe or visit his site!

The short list of specs are as follows:

  • Intel Core M3 7Y30  processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 128 GB SSD (Upgrade slot on bottom of notebook)
  • WiFi b/g/n/ac dual band
  • microSD slot
  • 2 full size USB 3 .0 ports
  • 1920 x 1080 display

The display appears to be the weak point on this device, but considering the price it may still be well worth the money!

So let us get to the video…

This device is available on Gearbest currently at $424.99.

That is all I have for now,

It also offers a way to add an SSD to the tablet if you don’t mind taking the back off your tablet. The display is 1920 x 1080 FHD IPS.

Of course there is an optional keyboard for this device which is what makes it a 2 in 1.

Below you will find the video:

That is all for now,

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Chuwi LapBook 12.3 Versus The Jumper EzBook 3 Pro

This afternoon we have a great video comparison between the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro and the Chuwi Lapbook 12.3.

Suffice to say both of these have similar specs and I am not going to cover them because they will be covered in the video we have below from Chris over at Techtablets.

Both of these were mentioned in my Back to School Recommendations post about a week ago. They both have advantages and disadvantages. It all depends on what exactly is important to you.

So without any further input from me, watch and learn.

That is all for the moment,

Tim
