  2. Great review and performance of small ultrabbok! Thank you

  3. Redmi Note 5 Pro launched in India with SD636. Phone looks kool and the pricing is OK

  4. Hi, I was wondering if you can review the Tbao T-Book X8S Pro. It has a pretty strange configuration for 2017/18, but it's pretty cheap.

  5. Have you heard about an upcoming (or existing) 16 gb ram model ?

  6. Hoping the 16gb i7 version of this will come out. Been waiting for this so I can upgrade.

  7. Chris, do you think Xiaomi will release a 2in1 laptop? And if you do, when do you expect the release date?

  8. After all, Mi notebook pro with the same spec are 100usd cheaper than the Air……..

  9. i got a acer laptop 17.3'' full hd with i5 8250u and mx150 for 163€ (1to hdd no ssd) not bad. no idea what im gonna do with it xd

  10. Nice review on the gaming stuff. Of course you appear to be as bad at gaming as myself, which is why I don't ever concern myself with gaming performance. But other folks do care I guess.

  11. Could you enable the CPU usage as well in the MSI AF just to get clear idea of the CPU power ?

  12. I know you get tons of views on these games videos but I find them useless. If someone is gaming on such machine he/she is doing something wrong. These notebooks are for productivity, work etc… Maybe show photoshop performance or something?

  13. this review from dave2d just came out for the ASUS ZenBook 13 UX331 Nvdia MX150 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWRwuilpbGw . 1.12kg. am very interested to know which is better? And at the stupid price that xiaomi is charging for their air 13, the zenbook looks like a clear winner, weighing 200g lighter.

    Edit: found the Asus ux430un 14" 1.25kg. Same specs. Might get thst instead

  14. for 1100 US dollars, i'd rather buy a thinkpad than some chinese macbook wannabe.
    or one of those 800$ dells that come with a gt1050 (or was it 1060?).

  15. Great review, thanks for the info. I think as others have pointed out it would be a much better option to buy the Notebook Pro for almost £200 less. Unless you HAD to have the 13.3 inch size.

  16. Can it connect to 4K 60 hertz monitor.. Like LG UD88 via USB type c and supply the power back to the laptop using the same cable.. Apparently like Macbook Pro does?

  17. Good work mate ! I would like to point out that the fps in the first game actually was around 40~45fps it's showing in the top right corner .

  18. Once again great video Chris. Any idea if/when 2018 revision of the notebook pro will come out? I'd love to see an i5 with 16gb versions and a slightly better screen.

  19. Asus had just released a new budget ultrabook laptop. It's the asus s410un. It has 1080p matte display, i5 8250u, 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD, fingerprint sensor, backlight keyboard, mx 150(4GB GDDR5!). Weights 1.4kg too with its 42WHr battery

    And the price of it is the same as the mi notebook that you review here (if i got no custom fee that is). Though it probably has crap speakers (asus sonic master certified isn't that good, their high end uses harman kardon certification), and the touch pad literally sinks in 2-3mm if you click it (at the bottom part, the top part is okay)

  20. you are testing the performance of the gpu ona few of the most dememdimg games on the market and exept good results. maybe test the gpu in overwatch or fortnite, 2 of the most played games right now that dont need tghat much of good gpu and a lot of pepole will probebly play on this games.

  21. i would like to know
    how long will this HW last if you push it hard (in games / video editing) every week??? I give it a year maximum 2 before something dies

  22. I've been waiting so long for this

  23. Chris, what is the gamepad you are using?

  24. Will you ever do a more casual type of video? Like a Q & A, for example?

  25. Is xiaomi planning to release a 16gb version?

  26. Why dark grey color is better than 2017 edition silver , becouse its same than Apple products or becouse its your favourite color?

  27. I don´t think that memory overclock will improve any scores, it seems stable but the performance will decrease. Please benchmark before and after the memory overclock. On a normal desktop graphics card you normally can overclock it 10%, like on my 1080. So please check that, the notebook graphics might select the max speed anyways.

  28. Would be great if you switched your thermal solution to "liquid metal", Could be really interesting with the temperatures in your future cooling mods on these laptops.


  29. I wish you added Street Fighter 5 as a test

  30. What are the actual differences in terms of power and usability between the pro and air models? Want to buy one, but can not decided which one to get

  31. Do you think these would make a good HackinTosh?

  32. Shame about the graphics, but I guess it suffices for a lot of people still.
    Still waiting for the ASUS Zenbook Flip 15 UX561UD to drop! That's my kinda thing, but it's taking forever to appear in stock around places… grrrmpf.

  33. Chris, really love your videos, but you forgot to include VRAM usage in Msi Afterburner so we can see the actual usage of video memory in those heavy games

  34. Temperature are lower than what I expected
    Okay that's a nice improvement but still it's ideal for gaming
    I'm mean yeah it's great for potato pc gamers but still I won't recommend it for gaming
    Battery life yes now that's why I would recommend

  35. Pricing is way off vs the notebook pro
    Great review

  36. Great video!

    I haven't even been here long enough to say that but nm
