Maximus Plus 11.6″ HD Atom Z8350 Convertible Laptop
Maximus Plus is an entry level, ultra slim, compact and convertible Windows laptop 11.6” HD touch display on a 360-degree rotating hinge, a quad core Intel Atom processor, 2GB memory, 32GB eMMC flash storage and Windows 10 operating system.
The quad core Intel Atom Bay Trail Z8350 processor runs at a base speed of 1.44GHz up to 1.9GHz with turbo boost. 2GB memory and 32GB storage space are not much and probably the minimum amounts you can get on any laptop. But they will be adequate at this price level and if you’ll be using the computer for basic tasks. You have a fairly powerful quad core processor that will help with the multitasking power and you will also be using more of Cloud based storage.
Maximus Plus weighs 4 pounds and measures 11.4 x 7.75 x 0.7 inches, is very compact, slim and portable. 11.6-inch high definition touch screen has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution and IPS panel with 178-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles necessary for four different modes of tablet, stand, tent and laptop. There is a reasonable quality webcam on the top bezel for your Skype chats and taking still shots and built-in speakers for adequate sound at this price level.
We mentioned four different modes that you can use this budget PC in. The tent mode is good for playing games, the stand mode for watching videos and movies, laptop mode for work etc. and the tablet mode is for easy connection. You have access to all the great features of Windows 10, when you want to check your emails, play simple games, watch videos, listen to music, type up documents or browse the internet. You can hook up a printer via Bluetooth wirelessly or using the USB port.It comes with the 802.11 bgn wireless, Bluetooth, a USB 2.0 port and a Micro Card Reader.
You have the functions like Internet Browser, Picture Viewing, Games, Music/Video Playback, Calculator, Calendar, Office Work, Email, Windows Store and more. In the package you will get earphones, and the user manual with the warranty. Typical Thermal Design Power- TDP is 4 watts on this machine and the battery should last a long time- you can be away from the power outlets all day long. 32GB can be expanded up to 128GB via the USB port if you want larger local storage. Maximus Plus seems to offer you a good deal of flexibility and functionality at such a low price, if you don’t need a computer that can handle complex tasks or advanced games. It has to be like the cheapest laptop on the market, at least the cheapest of all the machines we reviewed so far.
