Jumper Ezbook 3 Pro £175 @ gearbest

83
Found 17th Aug 2017
Use code BOOKPRO

Posted a few times before, last time it was £191, it's dropped a bit more.
Metal casing, not plastic, even the screen surround. Battery lasts around 8 hours. Only downside is the touchpad could be better, I know because I have one. Other than that, great bit of kit. The graphics can be tweaked to give 70frames a sec just by increasing the wattage limit, has no real effect on temperature, it's got a decent heatsink.

13" IPS 1080p screen, N3450 processor, 6Gb ram, ac WiFi, M.2 slot.
Community Updates
1. A fairly straightforward tweak to unlock the TDP to 10W (and thus increase performance).


2. Change the eMMC speed setting in the BIOS to improve the speed of the eMMC storage


3. Cheap M.2 2242 SSD upgrade:

128GB (£38 - see coupon under price): aliexpress.com/sto…tml

256GB (£59): aliexpress.com/sto…tml

The 3s has a plastic body, where as this has a metal body. 256gb ssd is apx £60, so price is similar but you'd have a metal shell which looks nicer.
Also the webcam is at the bottom of the screen on the 3s, odd location.
Does the 3s have ac wifi, thought it was single band n using realtek RTL8723B which is a faff on Linux and the bluetooth often kills the wifi strength, the Intel 3165 on the 3Pro is much better.

Personally I would pay the extra and go with the posted deal for the Ezbook 3S with the full sized 256Gb M.2 SSD

Ordered this about two weeks ago, not shipped yet, got in touch with them and they said it should be shipping on 20-23rd Aug. Fingers crossed. Managed to get it for £149 with a code. Still hot tho and as the op said, with the tdp tweak, you can actually get some decent performance with lower end games!

Mine took 3 weeks to ship but that was because it hadn't been released, once they shipped it, it a couple of weeks to receive it.
Does this run silent?

The CPU will be about twice as fast but not sure about the GPU performance. Don't expect much as this has about half the wattage I think.

The Pro is definitely the better deal over the 3S.

You can increase performance with a simple mod. HERE
There are some benchmarks on their YouTube channel.

What the hell are breast bumps!!
Think its quite jump up from the 2, although I've not actually seen the 2.
Yes, it comes with the same style of wall charger, at least its lighter for traveling..

Boring question - but if I load up ms office will it a) function at a resonable pace b) have enough space on the disk for the programs and a resonable amount of files

Sounds about right. So many of their codes either don't work or actually increase the price.

Microsoft Office will be absolutely fine. Space should be fine as well if that's all you're doing. You might want to consider a having a 128GB USB3.0 flash drive (~£25) permanently plugged in though for extra storage or upgrading the SSD (£40-£60 for 128GB/256GB).

Thats the 3s, the 3L pro is different again, keep up ;-)

Not sure the 3L has an IPS screen, it may well have but its not in the spec, which is a bit of a no no.

Gearbest support suggest it's a TN Panel on the 3L. But it's probably a lottery as to what you end up with anyway.


Q
Is it a ips panel or tn?

Hello Rayyan,

It is TN panel.

Do you reckon Jumper are deliberately having a laugh at our expense by giving several different models almost the same model name?

Asking them to call them (a) EZBook 3 13" (b) EZBook 3 Pro 13" (c) EZBook 3 14" etc is clearly asking too much!

Sorry, meant the normal 3 Pro, not 3S or 3L.

The 3 Plus is better still but it's a silly price at the moment (over £340 at the moment and fluctuates to over £400).

It was the deal here. That he found, and had already shared and didn't work when I tried it. Guess reading is harder than assuming I was holding out on you.
