As an introduction to this analysis
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.To help you, we have tested this model according to several parameters.
After reading this article you will know if this model suits your needs.
Netbook 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. This Netbook is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. Goodtel is a manufacturer that has been offering laptops for several years now, but for this laptop they have used lower quality components. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 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 Atom X5-E8000; A mid-range orientation. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. 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 Netbook, 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.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. By offering only 64 Gb, this Netbook is one of the smallest in its category. 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.
Finally, the autonomy of 5 hours is one of the worst on the market. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the Netbook is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
Netbook for videos?
Goodtel has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. This Netbook is a multipurpose laptop that will suit most uses, whether it’s for playing resource-efficient games, light photo editing, or for office work and web browsing. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
Goodtel decided to make this laptop a very versatile product. A model with a standard template, 14 inches, and good resolution. 1920×1080. 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 (1.7 kg) when you have to carry it.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. 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.
For the sound part, the Netbook is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. 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.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel Atom X5-E8000 is now outdated. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
Equipped with the Intel UHD G1 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.
Regarding the connectivity part, Goodtel has made efforts with available 3 ports. It’s better than the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
For multimedia use in travel or on-the-go mode, this Netbook may not be suitable. With only a little autonomy, you don’t have a lot of time. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. In other words, do not rely too much on performance and prefer to use this device always connected to electricity.
Netbook the right choice for travelling connected ?
Making this laptop an easily transportable computer may not seem to be a priority in Goodtel the design of this Netbook. 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. And here’s the result : What makes this one of the best laptops to carry is the balance between weight, size and the set of components chosen by Goodtel.
It Netbook weights 1.7 Kg which makes it a computer in the average of its category. It’s still an easy-to-handle computer, even if it’s not an ultrabook. On the other hand, it is also pleasant to use it to surf the internet or write e-mails. One of the causes of its weight is related to the size of his 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. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
We enjoy viewing on this screen which displays deep and vivid colours. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
CPU Intel Atom X5-E8000 power consumption is a bit high considering the performance of the laptop.
Note that like all manufacturers, Goodtel is optimistic about the autonomy of this Netbook. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Goodtel; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
With 5 hours, this model is unfortunately one of the weakest currently offered on laptops.
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. 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, Goodtel 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.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
With this model, Goodtel definitely designed a computer easily transportable, but not too small. Because of its size, 14 inches this laptop represents a good compromise.
On the connector side, it Netbook has 3 ports. 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.
If it is for an exceptional trip, we think it can be taken away.
The Netbook- the right model for audio or video editing ?
Considering that the assembly that you intend to carry out is of the range of leisure, this Netbook 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 components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Intel Atom X5-E8000 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.
The designers of Goodtel 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. Here with 64 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (5 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 Netbooki 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. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
If necessary, it can be used for word processing and e-mails. In short, an interesting choice in this price range.
The Netbook- the right model to play with?
It is sometimes interesting, when you decide to buy a laptop, to be able to use it for several functions. Our tests have shown that yhis Netbook wasn’t designed for video games. The main causes are related to a lack of homogeneity in the choice of the graphics chip, associated with the processor, the screen and the cooling level of the laptop.
The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed the visual rendering will be. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Ideal for old design games, it has difficulty restoring the images and colors of the latest online games. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
Our tests have shown that for Goodtel 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 Netbookis 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.
You’ll like this handy laptop, and rather light (1.7 Kg and 14 inches), comparable to most similar products.
One of the lowest battery life 5 hours, which will force you to often leave this laptop plugged in.
In short, an average rendering that makes this Netbook a poor choice for video games, whether local or online. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.
The Netbook for office automation.
Access on efficiency, this Netbook is part of the laptops provided for office automation. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It is equipped with Windows 10.
It is one of the laptops available in the range. Average weight, with 1.7 Kg.
Key spacing will be important for office use. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
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.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 64 Gb. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
In conclusion, this laptop is interesting. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.
What about the Netbook ?
In the end, our analysis will have shown that it Netbook is disappointing whatever the uses. With an interesting price, it will be able to do the job if you know you’re going to change in 3/4 years.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
This laptop is average for the following uses:
– travel use

– office tasks
