BMAX is a newcomer in the laptop market, but the Chinese manufacturer continues to launch new devices every month. In early August 2019, the company released a compact 11.6-inch laptop called the BMAX Y11. It has a touchscreen, an aluminum body, and a convertible design. After another month, the manufacturer presented its new laptop – BMAX X14. It also has a metal body and a touch screen but is no longer convertible. As you can see from the name, the screen has grown larger, and now its diagonal is 14.1 inches.
Like the previous laptops, the BMAX X14 has a metal case and a very compact size. Its dimensions are 32.3 × 21.7 × 1.5 cm. Despite the metal cover, the laptop weighs only 1.4 kg. As you can see, BMAX X14 is very convenient to carry in a backpack or bag to college, office or cafe. The following image shows the comparison of the 14.1-inch BMAX X14 with a normal 13.3-inch laptop. BMAX’s new laptop is much smaller! BMAX X14 is only available in silver with a black frame around the screen. On the top we see a small company logo – this is a mask. The eyes of the mask are highlighted in the dark. Many gaming notebooks, but also Apple laptops, have a backlit logo. On the right side of the BMAX X14, there is a USB 3.0 port, microSD slot and 3.5 mm headphone jack.
When we open the laptop, we see a large 14.1-inch screen. This is the IPS panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The aspect ratio is 16: 9. The screen takes up 83% of the front panel. The display is very bright and also has good color rendering, contrast, and wide viewing angles. The side and top bezels around the display are each very thin at only 5 mm.
The BMAX X14 is powered by the Gemini Lake N4100 processor. This is the 8th generation Intel quad-core processor. Its clock frequency is between 1.1 GHz and 2.4 GHz. The BMAX laptop has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage. We think this is enough to store photos, videos, music and do everyday or office work. In addition, the manufacturer says that you can play games or edit photos or videos with BMAX X14. By the way, have you ever tried editing photos on a touch screen? It is very practical! As for the GPU, the BMAX X14 has Intel 9th Gen UHD Graphics 600. The laptop runs on the Windows 10 operating system with support for new functions.
There is support for dual-band Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz for wireless Internet connections. The laptop also has Bluetooth 5.0 for wirelessly connecting Bluetooth speakers, wireless headphones and other devices. BMAX X14 is equipped with a built-in 10000mAh battery. Incidentally, the manufacturer says that the new laptop boots up in just 8 seconds thanks to the fast SSD storage. It’s very interesting! The bezel under the display is wider because it has a 2MP front camera and two microphones. This is a fairly unusual place for a webcam, but we don’t think it’s a problem. Of course, the BMAX Y14 has a keyboard and a touchpad. The keyboard also has a backlight. The distance to the right and left of the keyboard is only 3 mm. The manufacturer decided to take up as little space as possible in order to make the BMAX X14 as compact as possible. There are 4 speakers, LED indicators and a square button above the keyboard to turn on the laptop.
We really like the design of the BMAX X14. Thin bezels around the display, a backlit keyboard, and a slim housing make the new laptop very stylish and elegant. We can grab it from Geekbuyinga at $363.99 in Flash Sale
