Best Value for Money Chromebook Ever !!
Chromebook market is getting hot these days as almost all major PC manufacturers getting into it. Why ? Chromebook is easy, simple, not many things to manage and care for, and more than anything else, it’s very affordable. Poin2 Lab., an IT start up based in South Korea, has released a new Chromebook with $149 price tag, which is the lowest the market has ever seen. “You get what you pay for” – is it true with Poin2 Chromebook 11 ? Poin2 Lab. guarantees that “You get more than what you pay for”, so let’s find out why Poin2 Chromebook may offer the “Best Value for Money”.
Poin2 Lab. developed its 11″ Chromebook with the philosophy of “Iconic” and “Eco-friendly”. Its outer look has clear and straight-forward shape and lines, with no unneeded details or cheap looking components. Who wouldn’t love premium features for less money? Poin2 Chromebook has integrated “Real Brushed Metal (Aluminum)” on the palm rest with diamond-cut touch pad area. The metal palm rest provides a welcome touch of class and makes the device seem extra sturdy. (It does add extra sturdiness too!) You will be more than satisfied with Poin2 Chromebook 11 with its iconic and durable looking design.
Build quality and mechanical strength are two of the most critical requirements for outstanding Chromebooks, not only because they are carried around everywhere, but especially because they are used widely in schools. They will be dropped, kicked, thrown, who knows what will happen? So Poin2 Lab. has built a solid Chromebook for everyone by introducing spider web structure for corners and adding extra plastic here and there. After surviving harsh mechanical reliability tests, Poin2 Chromebook withstands drops on hard floors, twists on diagonal edges, repeated opening and closing of the lid, scratches, all those that you can think of what can happen to a laptop. Poin2 Chromebook is and feels very rigid whether being used or carried.
Wireless connection, especially WiFi capability, is basic but very critical feature for Chromebooks. In many cases, WiFi speed can be the bottle neck for performance rather than the CPU. Poin2 Chromebook integrated 2×2 802.11ac WLAN module to achieve stable and fast wireless connection. (2×2 means support for dual band 2.4GHz/5GHz with 4 antennas, 2 for each operating frequency). There are just too many APs around us these days, most of them using classic 2.4GHz which causes interference with each other, degrading wireless connection speed. Being able to connect to an 5GHz (802.11ac) AP means clog-free and wider bandwidth to connect to, thus more stable and faster internet connection. Poin2 Chromebook also supports Bluetooth 4.0 connection for peripherals such as mouse, keyboard and headset.
Poin2 Chromebook 11 is powered by Rockchip RK3288 CPU – Coretex A17 Quad-core. It is very well suited for average laptop uses – browsing, online video streaming, productivity works using Google docs or Office365, and etc. It won’t be a good match for those requiring high graphic performance, but come on! at a $149 price tag, the system performance is well above expectation.
Poin2 Chromebook 11 provides all day long battery life of up to 8.5 hours on a single charge. Charge it over night, and there’s no need to carry power adapter.
