The result depends on the use you will make of it.Your computer will not be limited to technical specifications, so we have built a test plan according to the use you will make of it.So we ran tests on Teclast Ultrabook to find out what it was worth.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.
Ultrabook the right choice for surfing the internet?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.It is necessary to be able to count on a quality laptop that will not let you down in 2 years, due to obsolescence.The key is to achieve balance with a cheap but solid laptop.Here you have an almost perfect product.With this Ultrabook, Teclast is well positioned in relation to other competing models.With a 11.6 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. Also note that this model is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this Ultrabook on your lap. The materials here are of such a high standard that they will last for many years. The engineers fromTeclast have designed an interesting model with solid internal and external components.
The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Celeron N4100; A mid-range orientation. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. The amount of RAM provided is 8 Gb. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
With its 256 Gb of hard disk, you are within the average of other computers. In any case, it should be enough for a use like surfing the web. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.
Last point about the autonomy. the Ultrabook can work 4 hours in wifi mode only activated by the batteries. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. Not as good as what you can get on competing products, and that’s a pity, because in the end the laptop is pleasant to use.
The Ultrabook- the right model for streaming and videos ?
This Ultrabook is a sensible option for anyone who will use it for watching movies and listening to music. Not the best, however it is one of the models existing in a tight price range.
It is sometimes complicated to choose among all the laptops, which ones are specifically designed for this type of use; this section is made to identify if this model is made for you.
This small model is equipped with a thumb screen 11.6, in 1920×1080, and a good quality of colours. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 2.3 kilogram.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
For the sound part, the Ultrabook is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel Celeron N4100 is now outdated. As a result, in the important calculation phase, it may be a little brighter, and will consume more energy. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Equipped with the Intel UHD Graphics 600 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Regarding the connectivity part, Teclast has made efforts with available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
It Ultrabook is one of the worst endowed laptops on the market. Indeed, with 4 hours of autonomy, it is one of the worst specifications. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. In other words, do not rely too much on performance and prefer to use this device always connected to electricity.
Is Ultrabook planned for travelling ?
The main interest of the laptop, is how easy it can be taken away. We therefore analysed this Ultrabook from the point of view of nomadic use. Is it made to be taken on trips, packed in your luggage ? Will it be designed for your home-to-work transfers? Should you only consider it for weekend trips with your family? Or should this use be confined to going from the living room to your kitchen.
However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.3 Kg. It’s unpleasant to carry. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. The 11.6 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
This Ultrabook is convenient with its touch screen that frees you from the mouse. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. The selections are precise in the cursor movement, making navigation seamless.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. The viewing is up to the mark.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
CPU Intel Celeron N4100 power consumption is a bit high considering the performance of the laptop.
Note that like all manufacturers, Teclast is optimistic about the autonomy of this Ultrabook. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 4 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 256 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.Thanks to this, Teclast was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. Equipped with a compact 11.6 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
On the connector side, it Ultrabook has 4 ports. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Teclast clearly provides with this Ultrabook a very good choice for the trip.
The Ultrabook to make audio or video editing.
Considering that the assembly that you intend to carry out is of the range of leisure, this Ultrabook can suit you. It is correctly equipped on the processor level for speed and RAM for task management; Of course, there are models with much better performance, but this is already a good model.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Intel Celeron N4100 that is almost obsolete. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 256 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. Here with 256 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (4 hours). It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
For the connector part, the Ultrabookhas the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
With this Ultrabook product, Teclastoffer us a good start for an advanced use of audio and video editing. If necessary, it can be used for word processing and e-mails. In short, a relevant choice for a contained price.
The Ultrabook for online or local games.
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. It appears that in terms of performance or on the issue of general cooling, this Ultrabook is one of the models in the average. But if you’re used to playing the latest games of the moment, you’ll soon reach the limits.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Teclast like most manufacturers, knows that intensive and extensive use of the computer in game mode requires performance. It corresponds to a median choice, neither extremely powerful nor too expensive.
An average capacity/price ratio that makes this Ultrabook an interesting choice when you’re looking for a 256 Gb drive. Not necessary for everyone who plays online, but convenient for those who prefer to play locally.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
With 2.3 Kg, it is likely to remain on your desk more often than in a case to take it on a trip.
For autonomy, 4 hours, this model is worse than most other laptops.
So it’s a middle ground for gaming; enough performance at the right price. And if necessary, you can use it for internet browsing and e-mail.
Ultrabook the right choice for office automation ?
Although this does not affect the majority of users, it is important to know the OS of this hardware. For those of you who are users of specific operating systems, your choice will probably not head towards this model. This Ultrabook is clearly intended for those who will use it for office use.
Customary of this OS, Teclast has chosen as usual. It is equipped with Windows 10.
Given its size, it is not advisable to be taken away too often. This model weighs 2.3 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
We gave it the lamp test, positioned next to the screen, and it was found to be sufficiently matt to avoid the reflection phenomenon. The colour palette is of good quality; blacks and whites do not look like yellow and grey.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. It’s 256 Gb available, perfect for office use, but maybe tight for recording movies.
In conclusion, the Ultrabook is an excellent choice for office use. It combines ergonomics with power, with an interesting price/quality ratio.
Finally, the Ultrabook….
Almost impossible for a laptop to be good everywhere, but on the other hand it is possible to obtain a average result. The Ultrabook corresponds to a product that is certainly average, but still effective.
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– listening to music and watching videos
– making audio and video editing
– playing video games
Also, we suggest this laptop on :
– surfing on the internet
– travel use
– office tasks
