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.
So we ran tests on Jumper EZBook 3 Pro to find out what it was worth.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.
EZBook 3 Pro compatible with internet use?
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. An inexpensive computer such as EZBook 3 Pro may seem to be the solution. Even if the material is not of a very high quality, with plastic materials (at the level of the hull), the components and the internal circuits of the machine are still designed by Jumper; a manufacturer who has been offering laptops for several years already. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 13.3 inches size. No touch screen available on this model. A point that could be impeding, for some users,with this EZBook 3 Pro if you have to work on the road.
Nevertheless, the trackpad is intuitive and simple to use. After all Jumper, has accustomed us to design quality products, just like this model, which will serve you for a long time to come.
The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Celeron N3450; 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. 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. Very clearly, with only 4 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the EZBook 3 Pro, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Your computer will work better and longer.
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 128 Gb. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Additional point concerning autonomy: 8 hours of tranquility. With this laptop EZBook 3 Pro it will therefore be necessary to always keep the power cable within easy reach. 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.
EZBook 3 Pro for videos?
Jumper has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this EZBook 3 Pro is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. Finally, a simple computer, yet not really made for audio and video.
Equipped with a small screen size, 13.3 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Nevertheless, the colours remain beautiful, with detailed contrasts in the images. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 1.9 kilogram.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
On the sound side, it EZBook 3 Pro has good components: board and integrated speakers. 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. 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 N3450 is now outdated. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Equipped with the Intel HD 500 graphic card, and with 4 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 3 ports.Much better than most of the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
As for battery life, it EZBook 3 Pro can allow you to have a multimedia use in nomadic mode. Jumper promises 8 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
EZBook 3 Pro the right choice for travelling connected ?
The main interest of the laptop, is how easy it can be taken away. So we put this test to the EZBook 3 Pro. 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 ultimately will it have the function of staying at home?
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 1.9 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. The 13.3 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
Unfortunately, it is not EZBook 3 Pro equipped with a touch screen as standard models. The constraint being then to always have the mouse in the computer bag. Another possibility is to use the trackpad on the keyboard.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
The processor Intel Celeron N3450 is inferior to other competitive products.
Note that like all manufacturers, Jumper is optimistic about the autonomy of this EZBook 3 Pro. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
As for the autonomy , the batteries will allow you to use it for about 8 hours.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 128 Gb. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. Thanks to this, Jumper 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 EZBook 3 Pro 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. With a screen of 13.3 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
On the connector side, it EZBook 3 Pro has 3 ports. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Taking all this into account, we can say that it will be useful for you on holiday.
The EZBook 3 Pro for audio or video editing ?
The use of a laptop for audio or video editing requires a high-performance product. With this EZBook 3 Pro, you can be sure you have the right machine. With these components, Jumper puts at your disposal a laptop whose computing speed has been improved since the last generation. The parallel processing of tasks with Windows 10 are perfectly suited for audio or video editing.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Celeron N3450. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
The designers of Jumper have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. 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 128 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
In terms of autonomy,the Jumperkept it simple. For 8 hours of autonomy, you have a little time to work on your edits. A duration which is on the other hand equivalent to the other machines at the moment.
On the connection side, the EZBook 3 Proi s equipped with USB 3 technology. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. 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 EZBook 3 Pro, 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. And for the right price/quality ratio.
The EZBook 3 Pro for online or local games.
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. The tests we ran showed that the choices of Jumper in terms of components – the chip, the processor generation, or the quality of cooling – make this an average laptop for gaming. 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. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
Our tests have shown that for Jumper this computer is not intended for playing video games. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.128 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
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.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 13.3 inches size.
By offering 8 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
In conclusion, it EZBook 3 Pro is good when used for local games or online games, although other competing models may be preferred in the same price range. And if necessary, you can use it for internet browsing and e-mail.
Is the EZBook 3 Pro adapted to office automation ?
Which operating system to choose? In fact, there are no bad choices any more today. For those of you who are users of specific operating systems, your choice will probably not head towards this model. Perfectly office oriented, this EZBook 3 Pro is efficient.
Customary of this OS, Jumper has chosen as usual. It is equipped with Windows 10.
As soon as you have to take this laptop to the office, or on a trip, you will regret its consequent weight. This model weighs 1.9 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
This EZBook 3 Pro eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. In use, a matte screen gets dirty less quickly than a glossy one.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
The storage of this model, 128 Gb, is one of the smallest. If you’re working on shared documents in the cloud, such as Office365 or Google drive, no problem.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. The right choice for anyone who wants an efficient computer.
Finally, the EZBook 3 Pro….
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. The EZBook 3 Pro corresponds to a product that is certainly average, but still effective.
