VocBook to surf the Internet?
Considering that your use of a computer is simple (surfing the internet, writing e-mails and/or letters, doing calculations on an Excel spreadsheet), it is important to focus on a laptop that is both of high quality and strong enough to last over time.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
It is in this spirit that Winnovo has developed this VocBook.A product positioned as mid-range but of good quality. Easy to handle, and cleverly thought out during its development.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 13.3 inches size. This laptop is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this VocBook on your lap. The materials here are of such a high standard that they will last for many years. The engineers fromWinnovo have designed an interesting model with solid internal and external components.
With a processor Intel Celeron N3350, Winnovo offers an already outdated technology. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. 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. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 4 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. Your computer will work better and longer.
The disk size of this laptop is among the smallest on the market. If you want to have your holiday photos locally, you’ll soon reach the limit of 64 Gb. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 8 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. Winnovo is among the best in terms of duration in only battery mode. A feature that will keep you surfing for a long time.
The VocBook- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Winnovo presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the VocBook; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 13.3 inches, with a 1920×1080. The colours are faithful, warm enough, and the contrasts allow a high level of detail. 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 1.5 kilogram.
Glossy screens are best suited to the indoor environment. Winnovo is primarily intended for film lovers the VocBook. Taking full advantage of the backlighting, this tile benefits from the glossy coating which offers more contrasts. Also note that potentially this screen will be more stressful to the eyes, after 2-3 hours of use in a row.
For the sound part, the VocBook is equipped with a correct sound card and 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. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Celeron N3350, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. 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 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.
In the connectivity part, you have 3 ports available. About the average compared to the competition.Between, the speakers, the mouse, and the external hard drive you will have little possibility to add many more peripherals.
A laptop usually has an autonomy of several hours.Winnovo promises 8hours of battery life; it’s the best on the market right now.Enjoy streaming, locally or on your Netflix session, or any other streaming platform.
VocBook the right choice for travelling connected ?
This VocBook is one of the average laptops; not really nomadic oriented, but still possible to carry on special occasions. We have analysed different scenarios : depending on whether it will be used for work, with bus-metro-train travel, or just for holidays and weekends. And here’s the result : If you need to go on holiday and commuting, and because of its configuration size/weight/quality materials, it is a very good choice.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. A 13.3 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
Note that the screen of this VocBook being touch screen, you will be able to do without the mouse. Here you will be in a familiar environment; an ease of use that is identical to your smartphone. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
This model is supplied with a shiny slab. Its screen displays good image definition and beautiful colours. The disadvantage will come in the event of using it outdoors with a lot of light.
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.
Note that like all manufacturers, Winnovo is optimistic about the autonomy of this VocBook. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Winnovo; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Regarding the autonomy of this laptop, you will have 8 hours before having to reconnect; that is to say one of the best csore on the market.
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, Winnovo 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 do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Thanks to a reduced space requirement, departures on holiday with all the plane-bus-hotel transfers will be simple. Its 13.3 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
Winnovo provides 3connectors on this model. It’s one of the average laptops.
The manufacturer has surely decided on this model to limit the manufacturing costs, and thus removed the Bluetooth functionality; a pity when we know that sharing between devices (phones or speakers) is convenient with this technology.
In brief, this VocBook can be considered useful when you decide to travel.
The VocBook- the right model for audio or video editing ?
For this type of use, it seems necessary to turn to a high-performance product. It appears that this VocBookmeets this need perfectly. With these components, Winnovo 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. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Intel Celeron N3350 does best. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
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 VocBook 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.
The pleasure of working on a computer without being a slave to the electrical connection. Here, it’s 8 hours of autonomy available. This model is one of the most powerful of the moment.
On the connection side, the VocBooki s equipped with USB 3 technology. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
By choosing this VocBook, know that you will be well beyond what most laptops offer. Audio and video editing will be easier than ever. In summary an excellent choice in this price range.
VocBook for video games?
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. With this VocBook, 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 Winnovo 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. With a resolution in 1920×1080 this laptop fis one of the best of its class.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below 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 Winnovo 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.
Besides the amount of storage space is clearly insufficient.64 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.5 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
With an autonomy of 8 hours, it’s better than the competition.
In short, an average rendering that makes this VocBook a poor choice for video games, whether local or online. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.
Is the VocBook adapted to office automation ?
This product could wrongly make you think that this is what you need. In detail, here’s what’s going on.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. In this case, it is Windows 10.
Among the choices available to you, it will be interesting to take into account the weight in order to facilitate its transport. An almost featherweight of 1.5 Kg.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
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 short, the VocBook is an average choice. It would be more suitable for other, simpler uses, such as web browsing.
The VocBook – in summary
The conclusion of the test VocBook is that almost all its specifications are below the others. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.
In other words, this model is not really made for :
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
– office tasks
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– web browsing
– travel use
Also, we suggest this laptop on :
– making audio and video editing
