In the real sense, this is the first Gemini Lake laptop i’ve seen, but it doesn’t come from a traditional notebook maker, but instead from a Chinese manufacturer named Jumper, which has produced a range of laptops – including the ECBook 3 Pro, the EZBook 2, the EZpad 6 Plus and the EZpad 5S – that have received relatively good reviews in the past.
Processor: Gemini Lake, Intel Celeron
Graphics adaptor: Intel UHD
Battery: 9,600 mAH
Webcam: 2.0 FHD
- The lines between manufacturers and laptop designers have blurred, and this helps to explain why so many laptops share the same design. The Teclast F7 and the ECBook X4 share the same chassis. This could be due to the discounting or clearance of that specific chassis type by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer).
- This laptop computer model has four rubber feet on the bottom of the notebook, a flap that hides your SSD, and a handful of screws that allow you to open your laptop. It allows you to do a good selection of ports (similar to F7): two full-size USB 3.0 ports, a MicroSD slot, a proprietary power input, a mini-HDMI port, and an audio port.
- Jumper judiciously opted for a 14-inch matte Full HD monitor with a fairly bright performance. It’s good enough for non-professional activities, but more demanding users can complain about a lack of contrast and colour fidelity.
- Proprietary power port
- Only 4GB of system RAM
- Dodgy touchpad
The Jumper ECBook X4 shows the skills of smaller laptop vendors. Stick another logo on this notebook and its price will easily leap by 50 percent, considering the nature of the inside components.
