Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe Notebook Review

By Tim

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is a very premium device that comes with a rather premium price tag, but also with enough ports to be a functionally useful laptop/notebook.

The biggest negative on this device is the price tag since we are looking at a $1699 hit if you were to purchase one. But for some folks the quality and specs might just be worth the amount spent.

Below you will find the video from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews.

If this notebook sounds like it is right for you  it can be found at Amazon.com.

That is all I have for now,

Tim

We Are Nearly 11 Months Into Using The HiBook As a Server And It is Still Great! :HiBook News Edition, Oh Hell 30?

By Tim

So after almost 11 months of testing I have reached several conclusions on the Chuwi HiBook tablet. They are exactly what one would expect from a pretty damned great, better specs tablet these days and that is, if you want a great  10 inch class, Dual Boot, tablet, buy one of these!

I am uncertain if you can find the original HiBook like this one but the Pro is better has a better display and a larger battery. The 10.1 inch screen on the original version is bright and to be frank, quite stunning when watch movies! It has it glitches here and there, but over all it is an incredible buy if you can find one on a flash sale at either Gearbest or Banggood.

The battery life is good and it can easily function as a notebook if you get the add on keyboard or use a Bluetooth keyboard available almost anywhere. I do like the K480 Logitech,  but there are a lot of decent Bluetooth keyboards available these days. Grab yourself an OTG adapter and you can use any wireless mouse out there.

No it isn’t a gaming machine, although N.O.V.A 3 does work well in Android. But if you are buying a 10 inch tablet for gaming I personally think you need to get a life.

The HiBook is certainly not as nice as the Hi12, but it is lighter, the ram runs faster, (BIOS tweak), and it doesn’t have nearly as many glitches as the Chuwi Hi12 that I am typing this article on. The HiBook has a USB C port the Hi12 doesn’t. On the flip side the Hi12 has  2 full size USB ports, 1 x 2.0 the other 1 x 3.0.  I am not entirely thrilled with USB C because it means if you have some older devices to connect you need to have an adapter.

The bottom line is that I am totally happy with both of the tablets we have here for testing and  including any adapters  and the super fast ComFast WiFi dual-band adapter I purchased, I am still about  $500-700 dollars below the cost of a single MicroCrap or Apple product, and yeah Samsung also!

That is all for now,

Tim

Occasionally Your Win 10 Print Queue May Get Clogged and Cease to Respond, Easy Fix, Write a Batch File: Video

By Tim

Super simple batch file to clear your printer queue!

We have an HP 3510 series printer at work and occasionally the printer will cease to function. This is because either my HiBook or Hi12 has decided to get a clogged up, (best words I can think of), printer queue.

It is relatively easy to clear the spooler/queue via the command line, but I went ahead and wrote a batch file to do it super fast!

So you can type in the text from the image at the beginning of this post or you can pause the video below. It is a whopping 3 lines and Win 10 will ask you to verify you want to run the file you create. Obviously say yes, or learn how to do it the long way.

Save your file as a notepad file with an extension of “.bat”.

Below is the amazing video, shot on the Hi12 while doing laundry….

That is all,

Tim

It’s Confirmed. The ComFast Dual Band Adapter Is A Bit Of A Battery Guzzler

By Tim

Whoa! Yeah the ComFast draws the juice!

In my previous post I mentioned how today we were going to retest the HiBook using the ComFast CF-913 Dual-Band, (2.4 GHz/5 GHz), WiFi  USB adapter.

This time I used the USB C port with an adapter of course and it was worse on the battery than the first test. The tablet was running as a server as of 0745 hrs today and the test ended when I plugged it back into the charger at 1735 hrs. That is just under 10 hrs and the amount of battery left? 4%, yeah, normally I get home and have anywhere from 40-50% power remaining.

So are the performance gains worth the battery consumption? I would say most definitely yes! For only $9.99 you get yourself WiFi ac speeds and somewhat better performance overall than the internal WiFi which is surrounded by a metal case. Is it a must have? Nope, wireless n at 150 mb/s is plenty fast, but if you must have faster and don’t want to get a new tablet or laptop it is a dirt cheap alternative. The bonus being you can use it on multiple devices.

Keep in mind that on a tablet with a huge battery like the Hi12, (11000 mAh), there is really no noticeable battery drain. I imagine that the HiBook Pro would also fair better because it has a larger battery, (8000 mAh), than the original HiBook.

I really think that the police cruiser intensity LED on the ComFast adapter is the major guzzler of power. A small tiny,tiny, LED would have sufficed.

That is all,

Tim

Yesterday We Got a Video Of All The Nice Things About The Microsoft Laptop, Today We Get The Reality of How Bad It Could Be:(Video)

By Tim

Microsoft Surface Laptop

Since I recently shared the video about what the cool features on the horribly overpriced Microsoft Surface Laptop were and I did mention the issues with upgrades or repair, I thought I would throw in the following video from the folks at iFixit.

This laptop just earned itself a ZERO on the repair-ability scale they use. You probably have a less than zero chance of upgrading the lower end version and the high end version is simply more of the same.

Below you will find the video….

It is sometimes hard to believe that people buy this MicroCrap/Apple garbage, but then again, folks buy a Lexus or Acura also instead of getting a Toyota or Honda…so I guess PT Barnum had it right, there is a sucker born every second!
