Reviews for the Pioneer DreamBook U14

Ivy Bridge League: Pioneer DreamBook UltraSlim U14 review
Source: APC Mag English
We’ve been hearing plenty about Intel’s upcoming Ivy Bridge processors in recent months, and now we’re getting a look at how they perform in notebooks.If this UltraSlim U14 is any guide though, the signs for Ivy Bridge notebooks look good -- 20-25% extra performance with no noticeable drop in battery life. We’ll be keen to see how things translate to new Core i7 mobile parts, particularly the quad-core chips.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
