The high-performance laptop for audio-visual editing : Ezbook 2 – Intel Atom x5-Z8300 from Jumper.

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 2 to find out what it was worth. The result depends on the use you will make of it.The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?

Ezbook 2 to surf the Internet?

We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. With this Ezbook 2, the company wanted to design a very basic model. Jumper 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 14.1 inches. Easy to take along from time to time. With a processor Intel Atom x5-Z8300, Jumper offers an already outdated technology. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. The compromise could be on a model with a smaller screen size but with a better processor. 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. With less than a 4 Gb of RAM, it Ezbook 2 is a fair one. 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.
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. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
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. You will have a limited time of freedom, needing to have the power kit nearby. It’s annoying, because the interest of a laptop is still to be able to use it everywhere, without it being plugged in.

Is Ezbook 2 okay to watch videos ?

You are considering laptops for standard multimedia use (watching movies, storing photos, listening to music)! Jumper offers the Ezbook 2 perfect for that. Not the best, however it is one of the models existing in a tight price range.
It is sometimes complicated to choose among all the laptops, which ones are specifically designed for this type of use; this section is made to identify if this model is made for you.
Jumper 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 image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience. In the end, a homogeneous product that allows you to watch films and, with its 1.2 kg,it will be easy to take on the move.
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. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
On the sound side, it Ezbook 2 has good components: board and integrated speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. 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 Atom x5-Z8300, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Equipped with the Intel Graphics graphic card, and with 4 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 3 ports.That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
As for battery life, it Ezbook 2 can allow you to have a multimedia use in nomadic mode. You have 8 hours of autonomy in unplugged mode, which is in the average. 

Is Ezbook 2 planned for travelling ?

It Ezbook 2 is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model Jumper. 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.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in its class. When sitting with the computer on your lap, it is perfectly wedged to prevent it from tipping over. One of the causes of its weight is related to the size of his 14.1 inches screen.
No backlit keyboard on this Ezbook 2. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. The viewing is up to the mark.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
Too bad for the processor Intel Atom x5-Z8300 that equips this computer; it is one of the weakest of the moment and moreoverit consumes too much power.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Jumper; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
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. 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, Jumper 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.
Knowing that you’ll have to carry this laptop by plane, train, or other means, it’s handy. The Ezbook 2 is right in the middle compared to the competition with 14.1 inches and an acceptable weight.
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.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Because of all these elements, we do not recommend this Ezbook 2 for travel use.

The Ezbook 2 for audio or video editing ?

The use of a laptop for audio or video editing requires a high-performance product. It appears that this Ezbook 2meets this need perfectly. With these components, Jumper puts at your disposal a laptop whose computing speed has been improved since the last generation. It is a laptop designed for multitasking presented with Windows 10, which will allow to manage at the same time the audio-video applications consuming calculations.
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 Atom x5-Z8300. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
The designers of Jumper 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. The Ezbook 2 has only got one, with total 64 Gb storage for your movies and music. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
In terms of autonomy,the Jumperkept it simple. For 8 hours of autonomy, you have a little time to work on your edits. However, it’s still a decent average range.
On the connection side, the Ezbook 2i s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
With the Ezbook 2, you’re moving towards a very good product. Perfectly designed for audio video use. In summary an excellent choice in this price range.
This is a good product to start doing audio-visual editing. 

The Ezbook 2 for online or local games.

It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. Our tests have shown that yhis Ezbook 2 wasn’t designed for video games. Clearly, Jumper has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
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.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. 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.
Our tests have shown that for Jumper 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.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.With 64 Gb it Ezbook 2is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
For online gaming, it Ezbook 2 has high quality Wi-Fi. Interesting when you can play outside with full broadband.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 1.2 Kg.
For the autonomy, it is in the average of the other laptops, that is to say about 8 hours.
In short, if you want a fun gaming experience, choose another model than this Ezbook 2 one. But it can be a good choice for office functions.

Is the Ezbook 2 adapted to office automation ?

Jumper has chosen to respond to all users who wish to have a basic use of their Ezbook 2. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
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, with its 1.2 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
Jumper chose the matt tile option for thisEzbook 2 that does not reflect light. In use, a matte screen gets dirty less quickly than a glossy one.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
With only 64 Gb this model is one of the smaller models. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
In conclusion, this laptop is interesting. Well placed in terms of price, it will meet your needs for office use.

Ezbook 2 the right choice for the right use

In the end, our analysis will have shown that it Ezbook 2 is disappointing whatever the uses. It’s not expensive, but it’s almost too much considering its low power.
In other words, this model is not really made for :
– web browsing
– travel use
– playing video games
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– listening to music and watching videos
– office tasks
Also, we suggest this laptop on :
– making audio and video editing
