With Intel’s new Gemini Lake low consumption CPUs coming to the market to offer 30% more power than the previous generation, more and more new laptops and mini PCs are appearing online. The latest addition is the Teclast F5, a convertible laptop in the likes of the Yoga Series from Lenovo, offering 3 working modes: Laptop, tablet, and Tent.
Just like the other big Chinese manufacturer (Chuwi), Teclast jumped from being an Android tablet to a Windows laptop manufacturer. The F5 is an 11.1″ laptop with FHD resolution with its biggest advantage being the touch display that supports Teclast’s T6 pressure sensitive active stylus. Also, the hinge looks durable enough to handle multiple display rotations through the years.
On the hardware side, the F5 finally breaks the 4GB barrier of most laptops and comes equipped with 8GB of DDR4 RAM thanks to the new N4100 CPU. In addition, it sports a real SSD of 128GB capacity and not the usual eMMC slow memory. What’s more, it can be expanded via the M.2 SATA port being accessible on the bottom. As far as connectivity is concerned, it comes with a full-featured USB Type-C port as well as a micro-HDMI.
Lastly, the overall footprint is extremely portable. It weighs at just 980g and has a thickness of just 13mm. It practically is smaller than an A4 paper and can easily be carried everywhere without too much effort. The Teclast F5 will probably hit the market this month but we’ll have to wait for the official announcement that will tell us what the price will be as well. See all the details here.
