The KUU brand continues to offer new products regularly in the field of entry-level laptops and is releasing the new version of the KUU A8S Pro. This latest addition from the Chinese manufacturer seems to offer good performance for a very competitive price and proposes to be used for both work and entertainment. Are the promises kept for this update of an already existing model?
Identical to the KUU A8, the KUU A8S PRO model has a slim and thin body, which is made of plastic material with a touch of aluminum, which gives it a quite elegant design. The lid hosts a 15.6-inch Full HD display that features a thick top and bottom bezel and thinner sides, and the top bezel hosts a 0.3MP front-facing camera. With a weight of 1.7 kg, we are here on a rather light and practical notebook-type laptop, even if it will not be the easiest laptop to carry in your backpack.
The 15.6-inch HD screen with its 1920 x 1080 resolution offers a very good experience for surfing and/or watching videos on the Internet and offers high-quality images. In addition, the night mode and color settings can seriously reduce eye strain during use. The flexibility of the rear hinges has a limit and does not allow going beyond approximately 100°. However, this does not prevent you from enjoying the laptop on the move without too much difficulty.
The KUU A8S Pro is equipped with an Intel Celeron J4125 processor, therefore a quad-core unit that can go from 2 GHz to 2.70 GHz at maximum power. RAM level, it has 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a 256 GB SSD which this time has not been divided into three units, allowing you to have a single memory for all your backups. A hardware advance, therefore, compared to the A8S, ensures better use of programs that require more resources, such as Photoshop, for example. The RAM is enough for multi-tab web browsing while being on a YouTube video at the same time. There is no slowdown on the test videos in 4K, better supported than on the previous version.
Gaming level, since this KUU A8S Pro proposes to allow you to have fun as much as to work; we note that it is possible to play video games with a decent frame rate, but not excellent. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 600 graphics card, with a maximum power of 750 MHz; is insufficient for many recent titles but should work for a few less demanding titles.
The laptop is equipped with two high-quality independent speakers which produce a decent sound effect but no more; distortions are absent but the whole thing obviously lacks the scope. The KUU A8S Pro has also equipped with dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi which is almost three times faster than its predecessor; greatly improving access to video streaming and online communication. We regret the absence of Wifi 6, however, in this price range it seems impossible for the moment.
The KUU A8S Pro netbook is equipped with a 5000 mAh large-capacity battery; which provides longer battery life in standby mode. A full charge can work continuously for more than 4-6 hours. The laptop has 67 interfaces, 1 * DC (power interface), 1 * MicroSD (TF) card slot; 2 * USB 3.0, 1 * MINI HDMI, 1 * 3.5mm headphone jack, 1 * RJ45. . Multiple interfaces can perform multiple tasks, efficiently read and write data; high-speed transmission of audio and video models, control equipment and fast charging.
Having a laptop is not only useful for individuals and professionals. Indeed, students are also concerned, since the use of computers is part of their learning. It remains to be seen what the KUU A8S Pro gives for school use. You can buy it from Geekbuying at $299.99 in Flash Sale by using Coupon Code: 6X8WGN6W
