Space grey BMAX MaxBook Y11 is a 2-in-1 convertible touchscreen laptop with the all-metal body has the 360-degree rotating hinge for use in different modes, including laptop, tablet, stand and tent. It has an average customer rating of 5 out of 5 stars by 3 customers, being released only last month in August 2019.
The technical specs include the entry level quad core Intel Gemini Lake N4100 processor (4M cache and 4 threads) that operates at speeds between 1.1GHz and 2.4GHz with turbo boost, large 8GB LPDDR4 memory at 2333 MHz for great multitasking power, 256GB M.2 Solid State Drive for plenty of storage size and speed. The Celeron N4100 runs more than 30% faster than the Intel N4350 processor you may be familiar with. And you will be less likely to experience delays or freezing.
The machine boots up and transfers the files, and runs the applications quicker, thanks to the 8GB memory and 256GB SSD. Windows 10 Home 64-bit version comes pre-installed and will help the machine boot up in just seconds. You can be away from the power outlets for up to 8 hours depending on how you use the machine. But you can expect the average battery life to be around 5 to 6 hours. So it offers a fairly long battery life.
The 11.6-inch Full HD glossy touchscreen has the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and vibrant colors, the IPS panel for 178-degree viewing angles vertically and horizontally. There is a 720p high definition webcam and two channel speakers for your casual or formal Skype chats, videos and songs, and a 2MP rear webcam. It has the integrated Intel UHD 600 graphics card for daily non-gaming kind of use. You won’t have problems with video streaming, internet browsing or light gaming.
The space grey BMAX Maxbook Y11 weighs only 2.2 pounds (1kg) and measures 10.8 x 7.4 x 0.5 inches, so it is very slim and lightweight for when you’re away from home or office.You can use it in different modes depending on your needs at the time when you’re out and about or on your travels. The connectivity options include the Intel dual band 802.11ac (2×2) wireless, Bluetooth 4.2, an SD Card Reader, a USB-C port for HDMI, USB 3.0 and power delivery functions, and an audio combo jack.
You’ll get Google Chrome pre-installed and not much of a junkware that would take up unnecessary space. In the box you get the BMAX MaxBook Y11, a 24W Type-C Power Adapter, 3 replaceable plugs for US, UK and EU, user manual, warranty card, safety document and a micro USB OTG cable. There is no built-in DVD player on the MaxBook but you can connect a Bluetooth DVD player easily. It is a sturdy, reliable and durable convertible laptop that boots up quickly, offers decent battery life, is sleek and lightweight, relatively powerful with large RAM and SSD, a functional touchscreen and we do not hesitate to recommend it at this price level.
