The Taiwanese manufacturer is unveiling its ultra-cheap laptop, which will cost only $ 170 in 11 and 200 in the 14 version. Revolution or just an unnecessary imitation of chromobox? Come and be judged
Continuing on the interesting leaks we received two weeks ago, Baiser is now officially announcing the Cloudbook mobile - an "official" alternative to Google's Chromebooks based on a free version of Windows 10, and try to prove to all of us that it is also portable Windows Can offer a reasonable user experience at very low price tags.
The Cloudbook will be offered in either 11 or 14 inch sizes, with both screens getting both 768 × 1,366 pixel resolution (probably in basic and cheap TN technology), memory RAM 2GB, Wi-Fi connectivity with 802.11ac support (very impressive considering price), Bluetooth connectivity 4.0, connection USB One full size 2.0 connection USB One full size 3.0 connection HDMI And a SD card slot and battery that should provide between six and seven hours of work.
The most significant surprise in Cloudbook for us, is what is under the hood - we expected to get here chip Bay Trail is one of the most basic and simple to offer, but Acer chose to include it on mobile chip Celeron N3050. This is one of the Celeron chips that are based on a pair of cores that belong to the atom processor world (unlike other Celeron models based on Core chips), but they are a pair of up-to-date 14-inch Airmont cores operating at frequencies between 1.6GHz and 2.16GHz.
On paper, this is a better offer than quad-core Bay Trail chips, but a larger thermal envelope of 6 watts (compared with 4.5 watts on Bay Trail) should provide Performence General similar and perhaps even better apparent when in addition Core Graphically enhanced with 12 units makes the Celeron N3050 a more qualitative choice. Just do not expect to run Crisys on this thing.
As expected, the key disadvantage of the N3050 is the extremely small (eMMC-based) storage volume - 16GB for the base model that costs 170 dollars, and 32GB for a model that costs 190 dollars. This volume should primarily populate the 10 windows system itself and maybe some additional software that you will be able to compress, but for all your pictures, movies and music at Easer, you expect to use the service cloud Microsoft's SkyDrive, where you get free 100 gigabytes or terabyte storage for a year. Another option is a USB drive or an external storage drive, which will certainly minimize the problem of storage cloud Available only where you have connectivity Wi-Fi To the Internet.
So what's better for a consumer looking for the most lucrative deal - Chromebook with a chip ARM Rockchip's cost of 150-170 dollars, or Cloudbook with an atom chip of Intel And 10 windows at the price of between 170 and 200 dollars? We would be happy to hear your comments on this subject.
