F7PLUS to surf the Internet?
Chances are that your daily use is not limited to surfing the Internet, and that you need the other functions as well.It is necessary to be able to count on a quality laptop that will not let you down in 2 years, due to obsolescence.A fairly powerful multi-processor, but one that won’t require you to take out a credit to pay for it.You only have to take it in your hand to see that the material is of quality.
With this F7PLUS, TECLAST is well positioned in relation to other competing models.This model is a mid-range model with a screen size of 14.1 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. This laptop 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 F7PLUS on your lap. The materials appear to be designed to last several years. The engineers fromTECLAST have designed an interesting model with solid internal and external components.
A reasonable choice equips this model; the Intel celeron N4100. Indeed, the power it delivers is interesting, even if it is not the latest generation of component. Contrary to a video editing style use that requires computing power, this model is correct for surfing the internet; a use that does not require too much computing power. With 8 Gb of RAM, it F7PLUSis a good product. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
With its 256 Gb of hard disk, you are within the average of other computers. If, on the other hand, you are storing photos, video or music, it will be filled up quickly. 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.
In the end, with an autonomy of 6 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. It is in the average range of what is done with today’s battery technology. It would be more interesting for the same price, to buy a desktop or a tablet, more powerful on the part autonomy and web surfing.
The F7PLUS- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Making this F7PLUS a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of TECLAST. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. Among all the laptops of the moment, it appeared to us as one of the best for multimedia use. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
TECLAST has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. A model with a standard template, 14.1 inches, and good resolution. 1920×1080. The rendered image is well detailed, with a bright and vivid rendering. Clearly, big enough to tire your eyes when watching movies, but also rather light (1.55 kg) when you have to carry it.
For the sound part, the F7PLUS is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
The F7PLUS has a processor Intel celeron N4100, a little more powerful than average, compared to those dedicated to office automation. Although it is in the middle of the range, this processor will be able to evolve according to your future needs, and in the immediate future will allow a good compatibility with all your peripherals. You won’t have to worry about launching your audio and video applications.
On the application side, TECLAST chose to let you do it. Only the operating system is installed. This is a Windows 10 on which you can install the software you need. Clearly, to watch movies, nothing more.
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. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Regarding the connectivity part, TECLAST has made efforts with available 3 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.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. 6 hours of battery life is enough for the vast majority of the videos you’ll see.
F7PLUS the right choice for travelling connected ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes F7PLUS to be easily carried around. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model TECLAST. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
It F7PLUS weights 1.55 Kg which makes it a computer in the average of its category. It is easy to carry even if you prefer the ultra slim models of the competition. On the other hand, the large size will be an advantage to see photos during the holidays. One of the causes of its weight is related to the size of his 14.1 inches screen.
This F7PLUS 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.
The keypad F7PLUS is equipped with backlighting. In addition, the materials used are of good quality.
The energy consumed by the processor Intel celeron N4100 is in the average currently.
However, please note that the autonomy indicated by TECLAST must be reduced. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 6 hours before the breakdown.
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.With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Knowing that you’ll have to carry this laptop by plane, train, or other means, it’s handy. The F7PLUS is right in the middle compared to the competition with 14.1 inches and an acceptable weight.
At the connector level, this model provides 3 inputs. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
According to our analysis, we think it is better not to bring this F7PLUS on holiday.
F7PLUS the right choice for audio or video editing ?
For this type of use, it seems necessary to turn to a high-performance product. It appears that this F7PLUSmeets this need perfectly. Whether in terms of computing speed or memory capacity, TECLAST has designed an interesting product. It is a laptop designed for multitasking presented with Windows 10, which will allow to manage at the same time the audio-video applications consuming calculations.
Generally speaking, for occasional use, the choice of processor Intel celeron N4100 makes it possible. Having 8 Gb de ram, it is good and powerful enough. All the applications you’ll need to get started are available. If on the other hand you start on pro applications, it will be necessary to add more memory.
The designers of TECLAST have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The F7PLUS has only got one, with total 256 Gb storage for your movies and music. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. Indicated for an autonomy of 6 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. However, it’s still a decent average range.
For the connector part, the F7PLUShas 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. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.
By choosing this F7PLUS, know that you will be well beyond what most laptops offer. And much more if you finally decide to use it only for word processing or web browsing, instead of audio video editing. In summary an excellent choice in this price range.
The F7PLUS for online or local games.
There are very few laptops today that do not allow you to play video games. It appears that in terms of performance or on the issue of general cooling, this F7PLUS 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.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below 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.
Not really designed for gaming, which leads to a display system that is a little behind the times An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
A space of 256 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. A feature that interested those, and there are still many, who want to install and play locally.
For the Wi-Fi technology, TECLAST, has done little more than standard i.e. without the 5GHz wireless band. You will need to use the ethernet port to access broadband.
As far as space requirements are concerned, this computer weighs 1.55 Kg and is 14.1 inches sized; it is in the average range of other laptops.
By offering 6 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
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.
F7PLUS for office automation ?
Which operating system to choose? In fact, there are no bad choices any more today. For those who prefer Apple, there are MacBooks, free distributions for Linux, and Windows computers for the vast majority. This F7PLUS is clearly intended for those who will use it for office use.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
It’s not F7PLUS equipped with all the applications you’ll need. It’s up to you to download and/or purchase the software suite that suits you. It is one of the laptops available in the range. Average weight, with 1.55 Kg.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
Another interesting feature is the backlit keyboard option, which allows you to work in half light.
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.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. The right choice for anyone who wants an efficient computer.
The F7PLUS – in summary
The key to choosing a new laptop is to clearly define your needs; it’s good in almost any conditions of use. Compact, elegant and efficient, the F7PLUS is the perfect tool for anyone who wants a mobile computer.
