A laptop designed for audio-visual editing : Jumper Ezbook X3 – Intel Apollo Lake N3350

In a few words

Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more for multimedia, and others more for games.
So we did some tests Jumper Ezbook X3 to find out what it was worth. The result depends on the use you will make of it.Some computers have power, others have more basic features.To help you, we have tested this model according to several parameters.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.

Ezbook X3 enough for internet use?

If your need for a laptop comes down to surfing the web, whether on e-commerce or information sites, and to making a few tables in excel, you could be satisfied with this Ezbook X3. With this Ezbook X3, the company wanted to design a very basic model. 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.
With a 13.3 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Apollo Lake N3350; 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. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 6 Gb of memory. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. By offering only 64 Gb, this Ezbook X3 is one of the smallest in its category. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 8 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. This is standard for this range of laptops, and for the type of battery it is equipped with. 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 Ezbook X3 okay to watch videos ?

Jumper has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this Ezbook X3 is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 13.3 inches, with a 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 main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.25 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
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. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
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 Ezbook X3. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Apollo Lake N3350, which today is rather light for this kind of use. As a result, in the important calculation phase, it may be a little brighter, and will consume more energy. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
Equipped with the Intel Graphics graphic card, and with 6 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, Jumper has made efforts with available 3 ports. Much better than most of the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. You have 8 hours of autonomy in unplugged mode, which is in the average. 

The Ezbook X3 to use while travelling.

An intermediate model that can be taken along on an occasional basisEzbook X3. We have tested it in several configurations : For travel, packed in a suitcase, in home-to-work mode, as part of a family weekend, or simply to go from the living room to the kitchen. Here’s what it turned out : What makes this one of the best laptops to carry is the balance between weight, size and the set of components chosen by Jumper.
With a weight of 1.25 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. The 13.3 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
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.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
With the installation of the processor Intel Apollo Lake N3350, the power consumption is rather important.
Note that like all manufacturers, Jumper is optimistic about the autonomy of this Ezbook X3. 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 8 hours before the breakdown.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 64 Gb SSD hard drive. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Equipped with a compact 13.3 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
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.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
All the same, this Ezbook X3 is interesting for those who travel.

The Ezbook X3 to make audio or video editing. 

If you’re serious about editing and creating music, then you pay a lot of attention to processor speed and memory. With this Ezbook X3, you can be sure you have the right machine. Whether in terms of computing speed or memory capacity, Jumper has designed an interesting product. The parallel processing of tasks with Windows 10 are perfectly suited for audio or video editing.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Intel Apollo Lake N3350 that is almost obsolete. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 64 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. 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 Ezbook X3 has only got one, with total 64 Gb storage for your movies and music. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
For the autonomy part, Jumper proposes last generation batteries. For 8 hours of autonomy, you have a little time to work on your edits. A result in the average of the competitors.
On the connection side, the Ezbook X3i s equipped with USB 3 technology. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
By choosing this Ezbook X3, know that you will be well beyond what most laptops offer. Audio and video editing will be easier than ever. And for the right price/quality ratio.

Ezbook X3 the right choice to play online?

It is sometimes interesting, when you decide to buy a laptop, to be able to use it for several functions. With this Ezbook X3, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. The Jumper technical choices were rather made to meet classic needs such as internet browsing or word processing.
The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed the visual rendering will be. 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. 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.
Since Jumper has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.With 64 Gb it Ezbook X3is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
For Wi-Fi technology, Jumper decided to make the use of the 5GHz wireless band possible. A guarantee of quality that will allow, if your living area is equipped with it, to have a faster and generally more reliable web access.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.25 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
For the autonomy, it is in the average of the other laptops, that is to say about 8 hours.
In the end, we do not recommend this Ezbook X3 for games; low performance will degrade the rendering and playability. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.

Ezbook X3 for office automation ?

Like the majority of its competitors, Jumper has designed Ezbook X3 for office automation. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
Customary of this OS, Jumper has chosen as usual. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 that’s running it.
Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. This model weighs 1.25 Kg, which is the best at the moment.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. In fact, if you want one, it will be necessary to buy a pad connected via the usb port.
Jumper chose the matt tile option for thisEzbook X3 that does not reflect light. The colour palette is of good quality; blacks and whites do not look like yellow and grey.
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. If you are used to backing up everything locally, you will have to think about adding an external hard drive, because the hard drive Ezbook X3can be quickly filled.
In conclusion, this laptop is interesting. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.

Ezbook X3 the right choice for the right use

The conclusion of the test Ezbook X3 is that almost all its specifications are below the others. With an interesting price, it will be able to do the job if you know you’re going to change in 3/4 years.
In other words, this model is not really made for :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
This laptop is average for the following uses:
– travel use
– office tasks
And we highly recommend this laptop for :
– making audio and video editing
