In a few words
Experienced users do not have the same needs as beginners. You are looking for a laptop and you hesitate between several models.Some computers have power, others have more basic features.From basic use (the Web, and e-mail) to online gaming with powerful machines.
So you’ll know what it’s worth at the end of this article.
X4 adapted to surf the internet?
Even if your use is limited to surfing the Web, writing e-mails and sometimes using an Excel spreadsheet, the minimum computer quality is essential.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.A fairly powerful multi-processor, but one that won’t require you to take out a credit to pay for it.This product will thus perfectly meet your needs.With this X4, Teclast is well positioned in relation to other competing models.With a 11.6 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. For all users who don’t appreciate the use of the mouse (with or without wires), it X4 is provided by default with a touch screen. The materials here are of such a high standard that they will last for many years. Solid visible parts (the hull, the keyboard,…) and almost last generation internal components have been chosen by Teclast with a lot of care.
The processor at the heart of this laptop, a Intel Celeron, is a rational choice. Teclast basic idea that you’re not going to put too much strain on that laptop. Contrary to a video editing style use that requires computing power, this model is correct for surfing the internet; a use that does not require too much computing power. With 8 Gb of RAM, it X4is a good product. It’s the certainty that the computer will work better and longer.
With its 256 Gb of hard disk, you are within the average of other computers. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.
Additional point concerning autonomy: 6 hours of tranquility. You will have a limited time of freedom, needing to have the power kit nearby. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.
Is X4 okay to watch videos ?
You are considering laptops for standard multimedia use (watching movies, storing photos, listening to music)! Teclast offers the X4 perfect for that. 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.
Equipped with a small screen size, 11.6 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The only criticism that could be drawn is its size, which makes it a small device compared to other competing models at the same price; over a whole day, it can tire the eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.4 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. 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 display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this X4. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. 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.
This X4, equipped with a processor Intel Celeron, corresponds to a price/power ratio in the average, sufficient for a dedicated multimedia use. A mid-range element with the latest components (chipsets) ensuring better compatibility with your peripherals. You won’t have to worry about launching your audio and video applications.
Equipped with the Intel UHD Graphics 600 graphic card, and with 8 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.
Speaking of connectivity, this laptop provides 4 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.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Teclast promises 6 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
The X4- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
One of the primary functions of a laptop is to be easily transportable. So we put this test to the X4. Under what conditions can you take it with you on trips, at weekends or on public transport? Or finally, is this laptop, as in many homes, just a replacement for a fixed computer?
A priori, for holidays and home-to-work travel, it is one of the best of the moment.
Its weight of 1.4 Kg makes it easy to move. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. A 11.6 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
Note that the screen of this X4 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. The accuracy of touch in navigation is without problem.
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.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. The viewing is up to the mark.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
With its processor Intel Celeron, this laptop has a power consumption in the average of the others.
However,you’ll have to decrease the manufacturer’s data concerning the autonomy figures given for this X4. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 6 hours before the breakdown.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 256 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. With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .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.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. With a screen of 11.6 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
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…
Teclast clearly provides with this X4 a very good choice for the trip.
X4 the right choice for audio or video editing ?
The use of a laptop for audio or video editing requires a high-performance product. It appears that this X4meets this need perfectly. Whether in terms of computing speed or memory capacity, Teclast has designed an interesting product. 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.
Possibly for occasional use, the processor Intel Celeron will allow you to perform certain tasks, if they are initiated individually. Having 8 Gb de ram, it is good and powerful enough. As standard, you will have the applications to make your video editing or your photo or music modifications. And in case you want to go further, you will be able to do so provided you add a bit of memory.
Even if this corresponds to quality components, Teclast made the choice to put only one SSD. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. The X4 allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 256 Gb. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
For the autonomy part, Teclast proposes last generation batteries. 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. A result in the average of the competitors.
For the connector part, the X4has the USB3 format. 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.
It X4 is consequently well designed for this type of use. Audio and video editing will be easier than ever. And at a price that is well ranked.
This is a good product to start doing audio-visual editing.
X4 for video games?
Laptops, thanks to the rise in performance of processors and graphics cards, allow some people to gamble. The tests we ran showed that the choices of Teclast in terms of components – the chip, the processor generation, or the quality of cooling – make this an average laptop for gaming. On the other hand, if you have to go through several hours, these same components will seem weak.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
Teclast has also chosen a processor Intel Celeron which has the merit of doing many calculations in parallel, and for the graphic part, the Intel UHD Graphics 600, for a good result. Even if the components are not to the level of the best, the processor Intel Celeron and the board Intel UHD Graphics 600 allow to achieve a very good result in terms of image and colors.
During the tests we ran on this laptop, the components used by the brand’s engineers proved that they could hold the load.
With an average score on the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) ranking, this laptop allows you to try some games. A good compromise that justifies the choice of this model.
A space of 256 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. Useful for local games; as there are still many of them, even though online games are progressing.
For Wi-Fi technology, Teclast decided to make the use of the 5GHz wireless band possible. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
On the practical transport side, this model is one of the lightest on the market, with 1.4 Kg.
For the autonomy, it is in the average of the other laptops, that is to say about 6 hours.
