As a preamble to this test
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.What power? Which operating system? Linux, Windows or Mac OS X? So many points that won’t tell you if you’re making the right choice.
To make the choice easier, we have judged this Winnovo Notebook according to what you are going to do with it.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.
Notebook adapted to surf the internet?
What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. With this Notebook, the company wanted to design a very basic model. The material used by Winnovo are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In other words, don’t expect to keep it for more than 3 years.
This model is a mid-range model with a screen size of 14 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Celeron N3350; A mid-range orientation. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. The compromise could be on a model with a smaller screen size but with a better processor. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. Very clearly, with only 4 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. Chances are you’ll have to add some memory over time. In terms of memory, you will be assured of having a machine that is more fluid.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. If you want to have your holiday photos locally, you’ll soon reach the limit of 64 Gb. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
In the end, with an autonomy of 6 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. You will have a limited time of freedom, needing to have the power kit nearby. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.
Is Notebook one for watching movies and listening to music ?
This Notebook 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.
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.
Winnovo decided to make this laptop a very versatile product. A model with a standard template, 14 inches, and good resolution. 1600×900. And in film display mode, you’ll have excellent visual quality with bright, realistic images. In the end, a homogeneous product that allows you to watch films and, with its 2.5 kg,it will be easy to take on the move.
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.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Notebook. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Intel Celeron N3350 that is several years old now. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
With Intel HD Graphics, 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. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 3 ports.That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
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.
The Notebook to use while travelling.
Easy to carry, and usable wherever you go. With this in mind, we tested the Notebook. Under what conditions can you take it with you on trips, at weekends or on public transport? 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.
This is one of the heaviest models compared to the competition: 2.5 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. One of the reasons is its 14 inches screen.
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. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
Here this laptop is not very powerful because of its processor Intel Celeron N3350; it’s inferior to the competition, and it’s not very good in terms of energy consumption.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
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 64 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 .And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Knowing that you’ll have to carry this laptop by plane, train, or other means, it’s handy. The Notebook is a fair alternative with iis 14 inches.
At the connector level, this model provides 3 inputs. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Taking all this into account, we can say that it will be useful for you on holiday.
The Notebook for audio or video editing ?
Considering that the assembly that you intend to carry out is of the range of leisure, this Notebook can suit you. Even for an amateur level, editing and creating music requires processor speed and sufficient RAM. Of course, there are models with much better performance, but this is already a good model.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel Celeron N3350 does best. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
The designers of Winnovo 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 Notebook allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 64 Gb. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. The available battery life is of 6 hours in standard conditions of use, which means keeping the charger close at hand because the audio-visual assembly consumes a lot of power. A result in the average of the competitors.
For the connector part, the Notebookhas 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.
This is a good product to start doing audio-visual editing. If necessary, it can be used for word processing and e-mails. A sensible choice for a product in this price range.
The Notebook for online or local games.
There are very few laptops today that do not allow you to play video games. And this Notebook is one of the average laptops you can play with. On the other hand, if you have to go through several hours, these same components will seem weak.
With only 1600×900, this model is below standard ones. In fact, the game phases will present lower quality images.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
For most games, this model will be suitable for gaming mode. A good compromise that justifies the choice of this model.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.With 64 Gb it Notebookis below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
No 5GHZ network possible in wifi on Notebook. Too bad, it could have been interesting.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 14 inches size.
For the autonomy, it is in the average of the other laptops, that is to say about 6 hours.
It Notebook is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. And if necessary, you can use it for internet browsing and e-mail.
Notebook 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. The OSes available on the market are all different technical ecosystems with their own applications. ThisNotebook is in any case perfectly suited for office use.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. In this case, it is Windows 10.
Given its size, it is not advisable to be taken away too often. This model weighs 2.5 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
Due to the size of the keyboard, all the office oriented elements are present. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
This Notebook eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. You will benefit from a more diffuse natural image, which has the advantage of causing less eye strain.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
The storage of this model, 64 Gb, is one of the smallest. If you are used to backing up everything locally, you will have to think about adding an external hard drive, because the hard drive Notebookcan be quickly filled.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. It combines ergonomics with power, with an interesting price/quality ratio.
Finally, the Notebook….
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 Notebook you can be sure to have an efficient laptop, compared to competitors.
