The Chinese brand Teclast proposes a new ultralight notebook, the Teclast F6 Plus, with a convertible format and, therefore with a touchscreen, moved by Gemini Lake processors and, on the software side, by Windows 10.
The lightness of the Teclast F6 Plus is not disappointing. It weighs only 1.5 kg and is as thin as 7 mm, making the notebook much more portable. At the same time, the F6 Plus uses a 2.5 D curved border to make the notebook more beautiful, with a screen margin of only 8mm. In terms of appearance, the F6 Plus features a deep space gray color match and a glittering LOGO on the A-side to make it more personalized and attractive. Like the almost confusingly similar Teclast F6 Pro, the Teclast F6 Plus is a convertible. This means that the display can be rotated 360 ° and can therefore not only be used as a notebook, but also as a kind of tablet. The manufacturer relies on a common 13.3 inch diagonal. The screen offers a typical 1920 x 1080 p resolution and of course uses an IPS panel. So that the use as a convertible also makes sense, the screen can, of course, be used as a touchscreen, which also enables 10-finger multitouch. Not only that, but it can also be used with the stylus, but this is not included in the scope of delivery.
The centerpiece is the Intel Celeron N4100 processor, a CPU that is often used in such notebooks. In combination with the Intel UHD 600 GPU, you get a solid performance that should be sufficient for office tasks and light image processing. The performance is not enough for current games. It should also be noted that the Intel M3 processor from the “predecessor”, the Teclast F6 Pro, offers a little more power. After all, the RAM for these applications is sufficiently large with 8 GB LDDR4, the internal memory is a 256 GB SSD. Windows 10 is already pre-installed on it. This can also be easily set up in German, in this regard we have had good experiences with Teclast.
In cross-section, the actual computer of the Teclast F6 Plus is the thinnest at the very front with 8 mm. The convertible is a bit thicker where the ports are located, i.e. near the screen. There you can accommodate the following connection options: power connection, 3.5 mm jack connection, micro-HDMI, microSD slot, USB Type-C port, and two USB-A ports. A battery with a 10,000 mAh capacity ensures a runtime of around seven hours for video playback. In contrast to the F6 Pro mentioned, this is simply twice the capacity. The F6 Plus is somewhat conservative in terms of connection options: only Bluetooth 4.0, but at least dual-band ac-WiFi.
The Teclast F6 Plus is once again a somewhat cautious design of an office laptop. We like the convertible design, but implementation and processing are very important here. The hardware is also available in other notebooks in this price range, only the high battery capacity stands out positively. Right now we can buy it from Gearbest at $319.99 at the launch for 500 units ONLY.
