Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Jumper Ezbook 2 SE 12 Inch Notebook

By Tim

This one comes to us from Linus over at TechLineHD and covers the Jumper EZBook 2SE 12 inch notebook. This is a low end notebook that can do most things a student may wish to do, but by no means is it anywhere near bleeding edge.

However it has ok specs, works fine, has Windows 10 and is roughly the same spec-wise as my Hi12 Tablet except for the 2 GB Ram and 1600 x 900 screen resolution.

But…if you simply need to go to the web, watch videos and edit the occasional document in Word or Excel, this will get the job done. In other words enough for a casual user or your child in school to use at a great price!

Personally I would only recommend this to folks needing a notebook for schoolwork, etc. But It could be very decent for your kids or as a family PC to use when everything else is being used and the current price of $150 makes it quite appealing.

So make sure that you subscribe to the TechLineHD channel if you like these reviews and now let us get on to that short review!

This product is available here for $150 as of this posting.

That is all for now,

Tim

The HiBook News: This Edition- More Notebook Stuff!

By Tim

We all know by now what the latest laptop/notebook offerings are. Of course there are some amazing ones out there and if you feel the need to blow $1000 plus or even $1600 plus, I say go for it!

However tonight’s post simply concerns the fact that what looks pretty and slim and bleeding edge may NOT be what you need.

I would love to own a new Ford GT but I simply can’t justify blowing $450,000 on a car. After all, for the most part a Ford ZX2 will take me from point A-B just as well at a considerably lower cost.

So remove your preconceived notions about PC notebooks and let us get right into the costs. Bottom line  is do you watch YouTube/Netflix and edit some documents or perhaps even edit a photo or two? In that case keep reading, if not, walk away, you probably want a gaming device and that means buying the high  end stuff.

If you are still reading that means you probably need a budget notebook. You want something that can get the job done and nothing more. Thin, light, fast and to put it mildly…cheap!

So that brings us back to what you really should buy and the total cost and advantages/disadvantages of each of my top 2 selections.

That leaves us with 2 stellar budget notebooks which are the Chuwi LapBook 14.1 and the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro 13.3 inch notebooks. Certainly the Chuwi LapBook 12.3 is sort of in the mix, but let us stick to, at least in this article, the more traditional  notebook sizes.

Keyboards might be an issue, so do you like to type in the dark? If that is the case, only one clear winner here, the back-lit Chuwi LapBook Air. If not, then we still have a tie. Touch pads on both are about equal so that doesn’t even fit into the buying equation.

Chuwi LapBook Air

So first of all you have to ask yourself does size matter? After all, 13.3 inch versus 14.1 inch simply isn’t that huge of a difference. So for 95% of you readers this is a tie, so lets move on to the display type. Both of the top contenders have an IPS panel, but what is the environment that you will be using yours in? Outdoors? Get the Jumper, it has a matte coating, no sunlight reflections. All indoors? Get the Chuwi, with the full lamination display.

Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO

Wireless speed and ports? Both of these have pretty much the same USB, microSD,  HDMI and headphone and charging ports and wireless speed  via wireless 802.11ac, including the same Intel 3165 chip sets. Battery life on both is within a few minutes.

Now as far as RAM goes, the Chuwi has more, although clocked at a slower speed to save battery life. Obviously these are not gaming machines, so that speed difference is pretty much offset but the 2 GB extra on the LapBook Air. But do you actually need 8 GB ram for doing the basics? Video, text, documents, web browsing? That is a very personal choice. If you want to multi-task more is better, but more is simply more expensive. We are talking budget here, yes?

So all the above being said we have sort of a tie ballgame, except now we hit that big one, pricing! The Chuwi, depending on the website and flash sales will generally be about $150 more right off the start. Roughly $379  for the LapBook versus the Jumper’s $239.  So if you are thinking pure budget, then the Jumper wins…but wait! Yeah, now some more things to consider.

The Jumper has an eMMC drive of only 64 GB which means you will absolutely need to upgrade it to an M.2 SSD right away for some decent storage and to speed performance.  The Chuwi comes with a 128 GB eMMC drive so perhaps you will wait on that SSD upgrade for a few months. Bottom line is, let us say you decide on a ZTC 128 GB M.2 2242 SSD, you would be spending roughly $70. That gives you lots of room, but still 64 GB less on the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro. Obviously if you have a microSD card laying about you can bump that up for next to nothing.,(purely a storage solution, because the microSD card will be 90% slower than an SSD). I have also found a site that offers ZTC Armor 2242 SSD cards for well under what you would pay for a slightly faster Transcend drive. How does $112 for 256 GB sound? Check them out and no I make zero off this link, I just happened across it.

So let us look at the costs, you would be spending about $319 for the EZBook 3 Pro because you will want that SSD and if you get the LapBook Air and the SSD you are looking at about $450. In the long run the Chuwi might be the overall winner, because of the extra RAM and bigger screen, but if you are simply looking to get some work done on your notebook I am going to have to recommend the EZBook 3 Pro as your best choice.

Obviously these devices may drop in price as all the new stuff hits for 2018, so keep a good lookout on that if you are simply waiting to pull the trigger on a purchase. Make sure to check the video on the top 3 budget notebooks that I posted quite awhile ago.

That is all for this morning,

Tim

Another Very Interesting Low Cost Notebook: The Jumper EZbook 3SE 13.3 inch

By Tim

The Jumper EZBook 3SE seems like the soluton for those who just are in need of a fast, light, 13 inch notebook for basic applications and maybe some web browsing and YouTube, etc. At a mere $169 currently on Geekbuying this is really a nice little home notebook for the kids to play with or if you simply need a PC on the go.

This seems to be a nice device with a few downsides such as only having a max WiFi of wireless “n” speeds, but those speeds are pretty darn quick enough for most folks. The other drawback is the lack of an SSD port to upgrade storage, but if you install a microSD card with 128GB you would have a total of roughly 150 GB free. This should suffice for basic use and office documents, etc. After all, my home PC running Win 10 Pro with a 240 GB SSD still has 127 GB free after 1 year of use.

So here is a basic overview of the specs:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 Home OS
    Windows 10 brings back the popular Start Menu from Windows 7 and introduces new features, like the Edge Web browser that lets you mark up Web pages on your screen
  • Intel Apollo Lake N3350 Quad Core 1.1GHz, up to 2.4GHz
  • 13.3 inch FHD IPS Screen with 1920 x 1080 Resolution
  • 3GB DDR3 RAM for Advanced Multitasking
  • 64GB eMMC Storage Capacity
  • Camera for Photos and Face-to-face Chat
  • 2.0MP front camera let you capture memorable moments or chat with friends
  • Bluetooth 4.0 Interface Syncs with Compatible Devices

Now I’ll be damned if I can find even a single video review of this exact product, but I am going to add the review of the EZBook 3S here, but keep in mind that this one has an IPS screen, is a 13.3 inch IPS display but sports only 3 GB RAM and processor is a dual, not quad core.

That is all for now,

Tim

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

Somewhere while I was moving web sites this one disappeared…

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 $280. If you need screen real estate, more RAM 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
