ThundeRobot ST-Pro Cool VR-Ready Laptop Late 2017!

ThundeRobot ST-Pro is a laptop that is VR ready! I bought my ASUS Predator 17x VR ready for around 3500 euro. Super pricy! But super worth it. But now a year later you can get amazing deals for way cheaper. This is both a good looking laptop and powerful. Let’s see what it packs inside.

Some main specs: Gaming Laptop, 15.6” IPS FHD 1920×1080 resolution display, GTX1060, Intel Core i7 7700HQ CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD disk, VR ready, 2.5cm thickness, 6GB of GDDR5 memory and 1280 CUDA cores!

The first good thing to know with ThundeRobot ST-Pro is that the GPU GTX 1060 inside this machine performs better than both GTX 970M and GTX 980M mobile GPUs! 50% boost over GTX 970M and 10% over GTX 980M!

This computer will be great machine for these VR headsets: ThundeRobot VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other high-end headsets. The processor is running on 7th gen kabylack platform with 4 cores, 14nm manufacturing process, 2.8GHz and can be boosted to 3.8GHz.

With a computer like this it’s important to have great power dissipation and this one comes with that for optimal gaming experience. The keyboard is full colour RGB backlight. You can tweak the colours!

The laptop is made in aluminium alloy material with a reinforced metal surface. It also has gone through various things like stringent stamping, anodizing and sand blasting to make it perform better and be durable!

The display has 160 degrees angle of view, 250 nits brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio and 25mm frequency response. Probably won’t be as vibrant as Galaxy S8 or iPhone X display but it’s probably decent for gaming!

The audio experience comes with Sound Blaster X-FI MB5 which has 5.1 stereo sound technology. Called the onkyo speakers. They are available on both left and right side of the laptop.

The I/O interface on ST-Pro can be good to know: three USB 3.1 ports (which is way faster than 3.0!), two Type-C ports, one HDMI port two Mini DisplayPorts, Audio Jack, RJ45, DC and Card reader 6-in-1 for standard cards.

I like how this laptop is slimmer than my fat ASUS Predator laptop. On the other hand my predator is 17 inch. 15 inch that this one has might be a little too small for many people.

Want a BIG Laptop? The Most Overkill Laptop Ever!

This laptop here from Acer is totally insane! It’s called the Acer Predator 21 X GX21-71-76ZF21″. It comes with a 21″ 2560×1080 curved display! Apple doesn’t even create 17″ MacBook Pro’s anymore and here Acer comes with 21″!

The specs? Dual GeForce GTX 1080 SLI 16GB GDDR5X, Intel Core i7 7th Gen 7820HK clocked at 2.9GHz, 64GB RAM Memory, 1 TB HDD + 1 TB SSD! It’s a bit sad it didn’t feature 4K resolution display that can be a major downside for a lot of potential buyers.

Some ports Acer Predator 21 X comes with are: 1x Thunderbolt 3 (Supporting full USB 3.1 Type C), 2x DisplayPort, 1x HDMI 2.0 and 4x USB 3.0 ports.

The major thing here of course is that this is a hard-core gaming machine with SLI configuration with two graphics cards that are overclocked. Also comes with a 5-fan cooling system to keep your system sharp! Three predator AeroBlade fans being used to keep GPU and CPU cool and quiet.

To get rid of heat it also comes with nine heat pipes. The speaker system is 4 speakers with 2 subwoofers 4.2 Dolby Audio Premium system.

Is this system overkill? Yes it is! But that’s also what makes it fun. That you can truly do anything with this setup! It will last for a long time. And it will be a laptop that everyone will think is cool because of it’s massive size.

Do remember Acer Predator 21 X is truly massive in size! So it won’t be like having a MacBook Pro 13″. This is a laptop you probably won’t be moving around a lot. And I can’t even imagine how massive the laptop case must be for this beast..

Also the pricing… This is not something for the average guy. This will cost too much! You can buy 15 HTC Vive Virtual Reality headsets for the price of one of these machines.

Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO Beauty Notebook!

This notebook here from Jumper has a look that looks very identical to my €1,500 MacBook Pro! The EZBOOK 3 PRO comes with some interesting specs.

First it’s having a 13.3 inch display with 1080p resolution, Windows 10 Home, Intel Apollo Lake N3450 Quad-Core 1.1GHz processor, 6GB DDR3 RAM, 64GB eMMC storage, it has an option to expand memory with a 128GB TF card, 2.0MP front facing camera and Dual Band 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz WiFi, Intel Graphics 500, 9600mAh polymer battery.

The build material on EZBOOK 3 Pro is a new material, a new type aluminium with wholy pressing, it’s about 1.4KG heavy notebook and built with a stylish design in mind. The bezels are 10.55mm. This probably won’t be the best computer if you are looking to play a lot of games. But for standard web browsing and some social media and light work it might be a good option.

I am really impressed with how beautiful the keyboard is. It looks just as my MacBook Pro keyboard. Black with white key colour. The notebook has two USB 3.0 ports, one earphone jack, one TF card slot, one DC jack for charging and one mini HDMI slot. Of course it also comes with a centered touchpad.

Compared to a MacBook Pro probably one of the biggest differences will be the display quality and resolution. That will be way better on the MacBook. But if you don’t need that fancy stuff and likes Windows but with a Mac design then this might be a good choice. I might check it out in the future! I am curious how that material will feel.

I am especially curious how good the graphic card and processor will handle steam game on this device. Can it handle heavy graphic games or just old games like Counter-Strike 1.6? What do you think about this notebook?

Xiaomi Air 12 Laptop Is A MacBook Air Look-alike PC!

Have you ever wanted to have a super cool computer that can match Apple’s design? There is now a cool computer out from Xiaomi. With a MacBook laptop look but for a cheaper price! It’s called the Xiaomi Air 12.

It’s having a 12.5 inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution, processor is Intel Core m3-6Y30 Dual-Core, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 128 GB SSD for fast speed, AKG speaker, Front facing camera, Bluetooth 4.1 and HDMI! It’s running on Microsoft Windows 10 Home OS. It also comes with a USB Type-C port which is ten times faster than USB 2.0!

The battery in Xiaomi Air 12 is 7.4V/5000mAh 37Wh that supports fast charging! The front facing camera is a bit low in resolution only 1.0MP available. It also is a pretty light full metal body laptop. Weight is 1.07kg. And it’s only 12.9mm thin. And the display has Edge-to-edge protective glass. On the side it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack!

Something that has been annoying me with the current laptops is many feels very much plasticky. Not the premium feel that Apple has been able to give. But it now seems like there is a strong competitor out on the market that will challenge Apple’s MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers!

I am currently using a slim Macbook Pro and an Acer Predator laptop as my two main computers. And something that annoys me with the laptop is how it’s three times as large and heavy. It’s good that Apple is getting some serious competition on the market. With this laptop costing around half the price of what the OLED iPhone 8 will cost!

I am curious to see how it will perform in heavy tasks as rendering videos. If the intel core processor can challenge the more pricy MacBook Air. Of course Apple has more optimised software because they both design their hardware and software to work together. Do you like the design of this computer? Would you like more ports?
