So in today’s video we’re going to look at this laptop as a laptop, because at the end of the day, this whole device we’re still going to use it as a laptop, despite its difference in hardware, so let’s get into it. So, firstly, the price: this whole device here costs 2199 ringgit we’ll, come back to that later and what you get for. This price is actually pretty funky. This is a rather compact laptop and it comes with a 12.5 inch ips lcd screen with 1080p in resolution and a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and the screen color everything looks decent. What i’m surprised by this laptop, though, is the fact that it’s actually using a glossy display, rather than a matte finish, like we’ve, seen on many other laptops in the market nowadays. So the glossy screen here actually allows better clarity, because you don’t have those kind of diffuse, pixels and whatnot, because of that matte finish technically matte finish is like tiny little grains of semi, transparent sand, that deflects light and whatnot. You will get a bit more glare, but the colors coming out of a glossy display will be better than those of a matte finish and as for the laptop on this keyboard, i would say: it’s pretty nice to type on it’s, very tactile and springy, and it Also uses a pretty common 13 inch laptop kind of keyboard layout, so you will get used to this keyboard layout very easily and the trackpad, i would say, it’s actually quite good.
It glides well tracks well clicks. Well and most importantly, though, the whole palm rejection thing is actually on par with many other windows laptops out there too, which is fantastic, since this trackpad is actually kind of an ultra white ish form factor and again, this whole laptop is very compact. So, as we can see here and here actually, the top and bottom are both made out of metal, except for this part here, because this part is actually where all the antennas are housed. If you pop up this part here this little cutout, you actually get access to both a nano sim card slot and also another micro sd card slot for your memory, expansion, and given that this is a snapdragon powered laptop, you will be always connected to the internet And yet the power efficiency here is extremely good because from what we’ve tested this 31.921 hour battery here, it’s really not that large in comparison with many other windows laptops here, but because it is running a snapdragon chip, the battery life i’ve used microsoft edge and then I also use spotify and also microsoft, word most of the time on this laptop and for the battery life. We actually only drain 15 when we’re, using the laptop with 50 brightness and also with half an hour of netflix and also with half an hour of web browsing and whatnot. That is surprisingly good. And if we only go purely for online web browsing and whatnot it drains 10 per hour, which means you can easily get like a full day and more worth of battery with just a single charge.
If you are using microsoft, word somewhere, browsing and all of this stuff and if you’re worried about the performance, let’s start off with specs first, because this whole laptop again snapdragon 850 uh, four gigs of ram and also 128 gigs of ufs 2.1 nand flash okay. This whole laptop, is it just takes some getting used to because for me, when i install google chrome with all of my extensions like how i reviewed many other laptops, uh opening up gmail lags quite a lot. So what i did was to open microsoft, age, import. All of my data and extensions from my google chrome to microsoft, age and then did the same times again open my gmail surprisingly, on microsoft, age. It works really well, and i also use the typical foxit pdf reader, because i like that software a lot and office 365. Like i mentioned earlier, it works very well. I actually typed this entire script, using this laptop alone on microsoft, word it’s, good and back to the bottom of this laptop. Do you realize that there’s actually no holes, no openings at all, and that is because this laptop is using a 100 fanless design and thanks to the bottom metal plate here, i would expect it to act as a huge thermal mass like a heatsink, the snapdragon 850. Just doesn’t kick off enough heat to actually warm you up at all and as for the ports on the left side, what you’re going to get is just a usb type c port, but on the right side you get a combo audio jack, there’s, no type, a Port, so you will definitely need a dongle like this, and this is a breakout port more like because you plug in a single type c, you get hdmi type, a port, another charging port for type c and then another audio jack.
I don’t know why, but this hub gives you another audio jack, that’s, all i’m gon na say and speaking about that the charger that comes along with the drawable sk3000 is amazing because it is actually very low power. This whole thing is 30 watts and it supports both usb pd and also usb pd pps, which stands for programmable power supply. So you can actually plug this into your phone and also fast charge your phone as well. If it supports those standards and for my case, i plug this laptop directly to the ugreen 65 white gun charger and it charges as well, because they both support the same standards, which i truly appreciate, because it really gives the user a lot of convenience. In terms of how and where we want to charge the machine, actually, if we take a power bank, we can charge this machine as well and back to the price for 2199 ringgit. Who is this laptop actually for well? The most obvious answer here is obviously for students, because its build quality is good and in terms of performance, it is good enough for you to do your schoolwork using microsoft office, excel powerpoint all of those stuff and also to attend online classes as well, and for Another use case that i can think of it’s actually more towards the enterprise level, because imagine that this device, since it has a nano sim card slot, you can plug it in stay connected wherever you go and thanks to one of our facebook commenters.
That pointed this out, remote control software actually works really well on this laptop as well, especially teamviewer. So you can use this as a thin client machine. What it means by team client is actually just a dedicated machine for you to access other servers via remote control. So this laptop is actually perfect for that use case, so yeah that’s all we have to share with you about the joybook sk3000 it’s. Personally i would say this is a pretty good machine and the way it’s built is excellent.
