You are looking for a laptop and you hesitate between several models.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.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.
Portable 14,1 to surf the Internet?
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 Portable 14,1. With this Portable 14,1, the company wanted to design a very basic model. Yitaoera is a manufacturer that has been offering laptops for several years now, but for this laptop they have used lower quality components. 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 14.1 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. With a processor Intel Atom x5-E8000, Yitaoera offers an already outdated technology. 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. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. 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 Portable 14,1, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Your computer will work better and longer.
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. 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.
Last point about the autonomy. the Portable 14,1 can work 4 hours in wifi mode only activated by the batteries. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. In other words, you will have to keep this Portable 14,1 most of the time connected to the power cable.
Is Portable 14,1 okay to watch videos ?
This Portable 14,1 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.
Through all the available laptops, you will know if, despite an average score, it corresponds to your needs.
Yitaoera decided to make this laptop a very versatile product. With its 14.1 inches and resolution of 1920×1080, it can be suitable for a lot of uses including watching films. 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 (2.4 kg) when you have to carry it.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. 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.
On the sound side, it Portable 14,1 has good components: board and integrated speakers. 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 short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Atom x5-E8000, 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. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
Equipped with the Intel HD Graphics graphic card, and with 4 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.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. Much better than most of the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
It Portable 14,1 is one of the worst endowed laptops on the market. With its autonomy of 4 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.
Portable 14,1 compatible with on the move use ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. At least that’s what we find out a priori. 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.
With its 2.4 Kg, it Portable 14,1 is one of the heaviest in its class. Every transport is painful. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The main cause is due to the size of the screen. The explanation mainly comes down to the size of the screen: 14.1inches.
The backlit keyboard decided by Yitaoera for this model was not Portable 14,1 really necessary, but it will be useful if you work in a dimly lit plane, taxi or subway. After spending some time typing on it, we can say it is of good quality.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
With the installation of the processor Intel Atom x5-E8000, the power consumption is rather important.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Yitaoera; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Unfortunately for the specifications of the batteries will only allow 4 hours of availability, one of the lowest at the moment.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 64 Gb. 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, Yitaoera 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 Portable 14,1 will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
With this model, Yitaoera definitely designed a computer easily transportable, but not too small. Because of its size, 14.1 inches this laptop represents a good compromise.
The connector part is very interesting, with 4 inputs available. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this Portable 14,1 for travel use.
The Portable 14,1 for audio or video editing ?
For non-professional use for audio or video editing, this Portable 14,1 may be fine. Thanks to its processor and its RAM, it accepts multitasking without flinching. This is below what dedicated computers do for professional use, but a good level for those who need it.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Intel Atom x5-E8000 that is almost obsolete. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
The designers of Yitaoera 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. Here with 64 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (4 hours). It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. Maybe the next model will be better off.
On the connection side, the Portable 14,1i s equipped with USB 3 technology. 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.
With this Portable 14,1 product, Yitaoeraoffer us a good start for an advanced use of audio and video editing. It will also do very well for word processing or web browsing when you need it. A sensible choice for a product in this price range.
Portable 14,1 the right choice to play online?
Laptops, thanks to the rise in performance of processors and graphics cards, allow some people to gamble. It appears that in terms of performance or on the issue of general cooling, this Portable 14,1 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.
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. 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.
Our tests have shown that for Yitaoera 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.
Besides the amount of storage space is clearly insufficient.With 64 Gb it Portable 14,1is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. Interesting when you can play outside with full broadband.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 14.1 inches size.
Note the disadvantage in terms of autonomy: it is one of the lowest with 4 hours available.
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.
Is the Portable 14,1 adapted to office automation ?
Whatever the type of operating system, it is possible today to have an office use on all laptops. The OSes available on the market are all different technical ecosystems with their own applications. ThisPortable 14,1 is in any case perfectly suited for office use.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
As soon as you have to take this laptop to the office, or on a trip, you will regret its consequent weight. Note that with its 2.4 Kg it is one of the heaviest.
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.
Our tests have verified that the matt treated screen limits the effects of light. You will benefit from a more diffuse natural image, which has the advantage of causing less eye strain.
When working in semi-dark areas, you will appreciate the backlighting of the keypad on this Portable 14,1.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 64 Gb. 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. It combines ergonomics with power, with an interesting price/quality ratio.
Finally, the Portable 14,1….
In the end, our analysis will have shown that it Portable 14,1 is disappointing whatever the uses. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.

– web browsing
– travel use
This laptop is average for the following uses:
– listening to music and watching videos
