So we did some tests Winnovo Notebook to find out what it was worth. The result depends on the use you will make of it.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.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
So you’ll know what it’s worth at the end of this article.
Notebook compatible with 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 Notebook. This Notebook is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. The material used by Winnovo are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In the end, it is a product that will make you think about changing it in less than 4 years.
A medium-sized, 14 inches-sized screen that you can slip into a computer bag and take with you on the go. The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Celeron N3350; A mid-range orientation. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 4 Gb of memory. It is highly likely that if you decide to use the Notebook, you will have to add at least 2 Gb to one of the avaiilable.Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. By offering only 64 Gb, this Notebook is one of the smallest in its category. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
Additional point concerning autonomy: 6 hours of tranquility. This laptop is in the middle of the range for its autonomy. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.
Notebook for videos?
This Notebook is an interesting option for anyone who uses laptops to view movies, photos, or listen to music. It’s easy to find much better ones, although you won’t find any in this price range.
In order to see if it will meet your needs, we have tested it for audio and video use.
Winnovo decided to make this laptop a very versatile product. A model with a standard template, 14 inches, and good resolution. 1600×900. The image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience. In conclusion, it is a well-balanced product that allows the films to be viewed correctly; and with a contained weight of 2.5 kg, it is easily transportable.
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.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Notebook. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. 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 N3350 is now outdated. 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. 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.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. 6 hours of battery life is enough for the vast majority of the videos you’ll see.
Notebook the right choice for travelling connected ?
One of the primary functions of a laptop is to be easily transportable. We therefore analysed this Notebook from the point of view of nomadic use. Is he home-work oriented? Or will you be able to take it on a trip? These are the questions we will answer. 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 2.5 Kg. Every transport is painful. If you use it on your lap, you will find that it is cumbersome. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. One of the reasons is its 14 inches screen.
No backlit keyboard on this Notebook. Not really necessary.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. 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.
At the same time, the laptop processor Intel Celeron N3350 is struggling; in terms of power it does less well than its competitors, and consumes a lot of energy.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Winnovo; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
As for the autonomy , the batteries will allow you to use it for about 6 hours.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 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 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.For those who will need more space, this Notebook will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.

On the connector side, it Notebook has 3 ports. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.

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. Thanks to its processor and its RAM, it accepts multitasking without flinching. 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. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Celeron N3350. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The Notebook has only got one, with total 64 Gb storage for your movies and music. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
In terms of autonomy,the Winnovokept it simple. Indicated for an autonomy of 6 hours by the manufacturer, it is preferable to keep your charger close by if you need to make changes while on the move or if you use a lot of resources for your audio or video editing. That’s pretty much what the other laptops do.
On the connection side, the Notebooki s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files.

With this Notebook product, Winnovooffer us a good start for an advanced use of audio and video editing. You will also be able to use it every day to browse the internet. 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. The tests we ran showed that the choices of Winnovo 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.
This laptop has a resolution in 1600×900, which is one of the poorest existing today. The visual comfort during the game phase, and the image quality will be less good.
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.
Winnovo like most manufacturers, knows that intensive and extensive use of the computer in game mode requires performance. With a display system, this machine provides a speed in the average of what is currently done.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.64 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
For those who want high speed wifi internet you will be quickly limited with this model which does not have the 5Ghz techno. Too bad, it could have been interesting.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 14 inches size.
By offering 6 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.
It Notebook is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. Good for games, but also for many other uses.

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 2.5 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
Key spacing will be important for office use. On the right-hand side you will find a number pad.
Our tests have verified that the matt treated screen limits the effects of light. With less or no glare, this screen will also stay cleaner for longer.an advantage when working on the screen several hours.
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, 64 Gb, is one of the smallest. If you’re working on shared documents in the cloud, such as Office365 or Google drive, no problem.
