It is Time For Another Video Worth Sharing: Teclast X3 Plus Review

Teclast X3 Plus

The Teclast X3 Plus appears to be a fairly decent product although it has some drawbacks, especially when it comes to battery life. Of course it has a nice super fast Celeron, Apollo Lake processor and a decent display.

The short list of specs are:

  • CPU: Intel Celeron N3450  Quad Core running at 1.1 Ghz
  • GPU::Intel HD Graphics 500
  • 6 GB RAM
  • Display is 1920 x 1080 (FHD), 11.6 inch

So I will let you get all the details from Chris over at Techtablets.com just by watching this handy video!

That is all for this evening,

Teclast X3 Plus 2 in 1 Tablet PC, Quick Video Worth Sharing (video)

Teclast X3 Plus 2 in 1 Tablet PC

The Teclast X3 Plus is a 2 in 1 Tablet PC, running Windows 10 with 6gb of RAM. It comes with a decent 1920 x 1080 (FHD) 11.6 inch display and the big attraction is the Intel Celeron N3450 CPU clocked at 1.1 GHz with a max speed of 2.2 GHz.

Lots of RAM and a newer Apollo Lake processor should produce some great results.  So just so you know you can find it on Gearbest right now for $363. As usual my personal recommendation is to find a really good Bluetooth keyboard so you don’t waste extra cash on an accessory keyboard. Trust me, it sure makes life cheaper and easier when switching up tablets.

So let us proceed to the video right away and find out all the specs from Chris over at TechTablets.com.

That is all for now,

Tim

The Chuwi HiBook is Getting The Windows 10 Creators Update Right Now!

As I type this the Chuwi HiBook is getting the latest Win 10 update, although it was referred to as a “Feature Update” but it is the latest version. Now of course we all knew this was coming, but I am just hoping to have enough storage to get through this, considering that during the update it mentioned low disk space and I confirmed delete old Windows.

I will of course run disk clean-up after this, but now 45 min into the update I am seeing a reboot….so…..I am getting the usual, “Your PC will Restart Several Times”, blue screen. So we now wait…

After eating dinner, we are now at 42%…we are roughly 1 hour into this…..

….We are now at 1.25 hrs and finally a little light at the end of the tunnel…91%…

So while I wait, you will receive a sort of mysterious message indicating you need to select some options before the latest update is installed. I left most of them turned to on, on the assumption, however ill advised, that I could kill them later. That was at noon today… the update started this evening.  The scary part was the message saying: “thanks, we will take it from here”. That is pretty much akin to a bad lawyer telling you, “I got this covered”, or the National Weather Service telling you it will be clear and sunny for your Easter picnic.

7:39 pm….it is telling me: “Hi we have some updates for your PC and then the usual, This might take several minutes and then the maker of the least secure operating system is telling me: these will help you be secure…blah,blah.

I finally am back to my Windows 10 home screen and low and behold, after the update I have 1.67 gb free when the update started with 10.8 gb free! So I am using Disk Cleanup which promises to free up 16.8 gb and we all know that ain’t happening!

….so we are once again waiting…well over 2.5 hrs into the update…at this point I have decided to take a nap…for a few hrs, because Winderz does stuff slowly…very, very  slowly.

update: This disk cleanup freed up about 10 gb of space, so it was certainly worth running.

What amounts to ‘Proof of Concept’ for the New Tablet I am Considering! Win 10 on a dual-core Notebook running a VM in Linux!

VM is working great!
VM is working great!

So once again this evening I did a bit more testing using my Asus X553SA Notebook to see how well Windows 10 with a VMware server, running on Linux Debian would work.

There were a few minor glitches, such as having to install the php5-gd library and Imagemagick so I could edit images inside WordPress and crop headers, etc.

However all seems well at this time as I write this directly to the Asus notebook based server.

Below is a short video I recorded using my BLU Studio Energy2 phone via screen capture.

So someone buy my Asus Z580CA so I can test this all out on a nice Windows 10 Tablet!

The video below is for those who never visit the Tablet Test site, because by the morning this site will be back in the Dragon Touch X10.
