Alldocube GT Book
– 12GB RAM 256GB SSD
– Intel® Celeron® Processor N5100
Hello, this is Tyler. I’d like to introduce you to a notebook computer with slightly surprising specs from a Chinese manufacturer that was released at the Mid of the year. Before I go any further, I’d like to say that the configuration of this PC is too unbalanced. It’s the Alldocube GT Book, a 14.1-inch laptop with a 1920 x 1080 pixel FHD high-resolution display.
This may be a digression, but the other day, when I attended a drinking party at Win32 remote, the topic of why young people have a high percentage of Macs came up. One of the reasons given was that for people who are buying a computer for the first time, a beautiful display is simply a big attraction. Personally, I agree with this. I’ve been immersed in Windows for quite some time now, but after using the Alldocube VBook, even FHD resolution is no longer enough for me, and I’ve always thought that Windows PCs should pursue higher resolution. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to write this article about the ALLDOCUBE GT Book.
On the other hand, there’s the CPU, which is a Celeron N5100. This is an entry-level spec by 2021 standards. It can handle office software and light web surfing (rich pages will be sluggish), but it can’t keep up with multitasking or anything a little more advanced. Based on my experience with the TECLAST F7S, which has the same CPU, I’m honestly not sure how much I can take advantage of the high resolution display with this CPU. For example, in the case of watching videos, it may be possible to simply play video files, but watching videos on YOUTUBE or other video distribution sites with high resolution settings seems to be quite difficult.
Other than that, it has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage, which is satisfactory for a computer of this rank. Depending on the sales site, there is also a description that SSD can be added, but there is no description here on the official site and I don’t know. It’s probably a “replacement” even if it is. The ports are also a bit interesting if you look closely, but I’ll touch on them in the chassis section.
In addition to the two USB 3.0 ports, the USB Type-C supports video output, charging (PD), Internet wired connection, and OTG with full specifications. I’d say this is excellent for a mobile notebook. It may be a small detail, but it’s also nice that the ports are spaced reasonably close to each other. It’s often the case that when you plug something into the Type-C port, it blocks the normal USB port. On the other hand, there is no microSD card slot. I don’t think there is any other Chinese mobile notebook that omits this feature as far as I can remember. Whether you need it or not is up to you, but just a heads up.
