In a few words
Is the P1 for you?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.From basic use (the Web, and e-mail) to online gaming with powerful machines.
So you’ll know what it’s worth at the end of this article.
P1 enough for internet use?
Considering that your use of a computer is simple (surfing the internet, writing e-mails and/or letters, doing calculations on an Excel spreadsheet), it is important to focus on a laptop that is both of high quality and strong enough to last over time.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
That’s the direction taken by LincPlus with this P1.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. Easy to handle, and cleverly thought out during its development.
It’s almost the perfect tool for travelling. A screen 13.3 inches that makes this model transportable anywhere. 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 P1 on your lap. The materials appear to be designed to last several years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care LincPlus has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The manufacturer offers a processor Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs; A mid-range orientation. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. So certainly, with this laptop you have enough resources for internet surfing and word processing, but you may have to change it in less than 5 years. With less than a 4 Gb of RAM, it P1 is a fair one. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. In terms of memory, you will be assured of having a machine that is more fluid.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. For those who regularly work on a public or private cloud, the available 64 gigabytes will be enough. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 10 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. This is one of the most important laptops on the market at the moment compared to other laptops. Incidentally, you will have all the more pleasure to use it for a long time because of its very pleasant screen.
Is P1 okay to watch videos ?
This P1 is a sensible option for anyone who will use it for watching movies and listening to music. The model has sufficient basic equipment for this purpose.
In order to see if it will meet your needs, we have tested it for audio and video use.
This small model is equipped with a thumb screen 13.3, in 1920×1080, and a good quality of colours. Nevertheless, the colours remain beautiful, with detailed contrasts in the images. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.4 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this P1. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
With Intel UHD Graphics 600, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 4 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 4 ports.That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
As for the batteries, you could almost replace your TV set with this P1 one. With 10 hours of autonomy, it is one of the best models in its range. No need to constantly check the battery level; you’ll be able to watch movies and listen to music for a long time.
The P1- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
One of the primary functions of a laptop is to be easily transportable. So we put this test to the P1. Is he home-work oriented? Or will you be able to take it on a trip? These are the questions we will answer. Or finally, is this laptop, as in many homes, just a replacement for a fixed computer?
However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
With a weight of 1.4 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. A 13.3 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
Note that the screen of this P1 being touch screen, you will be able to do without the mouse. Here you will be in a familiar environment; an ease of use that is identical to your smartphone. The selections are precise in the cursor movement, making navigation seamless.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
CPU Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs power consumption is a bit high considering the performance of the laptop.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of LincPlus; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Regarding the autonomy of this laptop, you will have 10 hours before having to reconnect; that is to say one of the best csore on the market.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 64 Gb SSD hard drive. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. Thanks to this, LincPlus 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.For those who will need more space, this P1 will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. Its 13.3 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
The connector part is very interesting, with 4 inputs available. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
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…
Taking all this into account, we can say that it will be useful for you on holiday.
The P1 to make audio or video editing.
For this type of use, it seems necessary to turn to a high-performance product. Clearly, this P1corresponds perfectly to the need related to this use. Whether in terms of computing speed or memory capacity, LincPlus has designed an interesting product. The parallel processing of tasks with Windows 10 S are perfectly suited for audio or video editing.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs does best. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
The designers of LincPlus have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. The P1 allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 64 Gb. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
The pleasure of working on a computer without being a slave to the electrical connection. Being only on batteries, you have 10 hours of autonomy at your disposal. As a reminder, with such a powerful laptop, it’s hard to do much better LincPlus.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it P1 receives the USB3 connection. 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 the P1, you’re moving towards a very good product. Perfectly designed for audio video use. And at a price that is well ranked.
With this P1 product, LincPlusoffer us a good start for an advanced use of audio and video editing.
The P1 for online or local games.
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. And this P1 is one of the average laptops you can play with. During our tests, we found that the computer was raised correctly, as soon as the scenes in some games required fast movements and colour changes.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. With a resolution in 1920×1080 this laptop fis one of the best of its class.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
Our tests have shown that for LincPlus this computer is not intended for playing video games. Possibly, the display will be less degraded if you are playing old games, requiring fewer resources.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.He’s one of the worst of the moment, with only 64 Gb.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 1.4 Kg.
It has an autonomy of 10 hours, more than many others.
So it’s a middle ground for gaming; enough performance at the right price. You can also use it for word processing if you need it.
P1 the right choice for office automation ?
Access on efficiency, this P1 is part of the laptops provided for office automation. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
If you’re already a Linux or Apple user, your choice will probably head for this laptop. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 S that’s running it.
Among the choices available to you, it will be interesting to take into account the weight in order to facilitate its transport. This model, with its 1.4 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
The storage of this model, 64 Gb, is one of the smallest. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
Ultimately, this P1 is an intermediate choice. Well placed in terms of price, it will meet your needs for office use.
Finally, the P1….
There is no such thing as a perfect laptop for every purpose, unless you put a price tag on it, and keep in mind that it will be too powerful for most of your needs. With the P1 you can be sure to have an efficient laptop, compared to competitors.
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
– office tasks
In summary, we advise this model for :
– travel use
– making audio and video editing
