BMAX MaxBook Y11 H1M6 Convertible Review

360-degree bargain. An aluminum chassis, a 360-degree hinge, an IPS touchscreen, passive cooling, a 256-GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM for less than 300 Euros (~$335) sounds promising. Find out in this in-depth review, which compromises have to be made with the small 11.6-inch laptop.

Case & Features

Although the BMAX Y11 uses an identical aluminum chassis as the Teclast F5R, the keyboard is silver this time around. While this results in a more premium look, it also impairs the visibility of the keys due to their white key legends. The exterior of the solid chassis consists of aluminum and offers a high-quality look and feel. Meanwhile, the areas next to the keyboard are made of similarly colored plastic. During our review, we were impressed by the 360-degree hinge, which holds the display firmly in place regardless of the angle. On our test device however, the glue that is supposed to attach the panel to the case came off - this manifests in the top right edge coming loose when opening the lid.

Maintenance and Upgrade Options

Thanks to the small hatch on the bottom, the M.2 2242 SSD can be swapped fairly easily after the two screws have been removed - perfect. Removing the entire bottom plate is not all that difficult, either. Users will only have to be careful not to forget the two screws hidden underneath the rubber feet in the back. After loosening all of the 13 screws, the aluminum plate can be detached from the plastic parts with relative ease. Here, using a thin plastic spudger is very useful to prevent scratching the case. On the interior, there are no additional upgradeable components. Both the RAM and the Wi-Fi module are soldered and the fanless cooling solution also does not really require maintenance. Thus, a more massive copper cooler is the only thing users could realistically install.

Despite the small dimensions, the BMAX Y11 offers quite a few ports. However, a full size USB Type-A port is unfortunately missing and instead users will have to contend with a small Micro-USB port. At least, a USB Type-A adapter, which worked well in conjunction with both external hard drives and SSDs in our test, is included. The integrated mini-HDMI port is somewhat uncommon and again creates a need for an adapter or specific cables. Meanwhile, the USB Type-C port also supports video output via DisplayPort. While Power Delivery, 4K60 and the integrated USB hub of the LG 27UD88 monitor worked well, we were unable to get the Philips 239P9H to display anything. This shows that USB Type-C is not as hassle-free as it should be. We did not run into any issues with our external USB Type-C battery (Anker PowerCore 20000). With the Inateck USB-C power adapter and the MacBook Pro 16 charger, the BMAX Y11 alternated between mains and battery operation. Unfortunately, the microSD card reader is one of the slower models and only able to transfer data at 25 MB/s in conjunction with our fast Toshiba card.

The Y11 relies on the well-known Intel AC 3165 for wireless communication and thus supports Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 5. The BMAX performs well compared to other laptops that are equipped with the AC 3165. That being said, the 3165 is still very much an entry-level card compared to other Wi-Fi solutions and falls far behind devices such as the Surface Go, which comes with a Qualcomm module.

With a size of 14x13mm (0.55 x 0.51 inches), the individual keys of the installed chiclet keyboard are fairly small. However, this is an obvious consequence of the small chassis. As mentioned, the visibility of the white key legends is not very good and the lack of a keyboard backlight turns typing in dark environments into a guessing game. That being said, the keyboard felt comfortable while typing even long texts.

It should also be noted that the keys are held in place firmly and that the layout is rather well designed in light of the device's size. Currently, only a keyboard with a US layout is available, which makes using the keyboard even more difficult for international users.

The integrated touchpad uses up all of the remaining surface area, which brings it to an acceptable size. Since it is a ClickPad, there are no dedicated mouse buttons and the plastic surface only offers "good" gliding properties. It is still suitable for occasional use.

Additionally, the Y11 offers a multi-touch screen to enable users to navigate through the OS in tablet mode. The response time is not exactly snappy (due to the weak components). There are noticeable delays during use.

Display

The glossy 11.6-inch display offers a high native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels (Full HD) and a moderate brightness of only 248 cd/m². As a result, users will have to look for shade when using the device outdoors. At 94%, the illumination is excellent. We also did not observe noticeable backlight bleeding during normal use of our test device.

The color accuracy ex-factory is rather weak. The grayscale exhibits a distinct blue tint and our ColorChecker test showed that almost all colors significantly deviate from their ideal values. However, our calibration attempt with the i1Pro 2 significantly improves the colors that, except for bright red and blue tones, are very accurately displayed. The screen then even becomes suitable for photo editing (as always, the free download of our calibration profile can be found in the info box).

* ... smaller is better

As per usual, the response times of the IPS screen are fairly high. Thus, the ghosting effect will be quite noticeable for hardcore gamers.

Unfortunately, BMAX uses PWM to control the brightness at a level of 25% and below. Since the frequency is in the high 20 kHz range, most users will most likely not be affected and since the display is already very dim at 50%, reducing the brightness further will not be required in most environments.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
30.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.8 ms rise
↘ 14.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 76 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.9 ms rise
↘ 19.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 33 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (39 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 20000 Hz ≤ 25 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 20000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 25 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 20000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17886 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The viewing angles are very good thanks to the IPS panel. The colors remain accurate and the observed brightness does not decrease dramatically, either.

The BMAX is currently equipped with the Intel Celeron N4100 or N4120 (refresh). Both processors are part of the old Gemini Lake generation and based on the 14nm process. They come with four small Tremont cores with a core clock speed of 1.1-2.4 GHz, a UHD Graphics 600 graphics unit and a dual-channel LPDDR4-2400 memory controller. In our case, the Celeron N4100 is accompanied by 8 GB of LPDDR4-2133 RAM. Thankfully, BMAX has opted for an SSD instead of slower eMMC storage. However, the Foresee SATA SSD is a slower model.

Processor

The Celeron N4100 was fairly stable during our test despite the passive cooling and there is only a slight dip after the first Cinebench R15 loop as well as a second dip after the 16th loop. At worst, the performance difference between the maximum and minimum speed amounts to 9%. With a score of 200 points, an average N4100 in our database is slightly faster. The difference is less striking in other CPU benchmarks and the MaxBook Y11 is even slightly faster than average in the long-term blender test.

System Performance

In PCMark 8 and 10, the performance is slightly below average compared to other laptops equipped with the Celeron N4100 as well. The fact that the Y11 falls short of other recent laptops becomes immediately apparent. This can also be felt during daily use. In most tests, the CPU is the limiting factor. The performance is still fast enough for simple tasks such as browsing with a few tabs and using office applications. While Core i3 and Ryzen 3 laptops are noticeably faster most of the time, they do not tend to be passively cooled and are usually bigger.

GPU Performance

Unsurprisingly, the synthetic benchmarks of the integrated Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU paint the same picture as the processor benchmarks. Compared to other UHD Graphics 600, it comes in at the bottom of the scale. Faster Core models have a significant lead over our GPU. Only previous generations offer even less in terms of graphics performance. Under prolonged load, the GPU also throttles due to the passive cooling. The 3DMark Sky Diver stress test shows a 92.8% after 20 loops, which amounts to a deficit of 7.2% due to throttling for the UHD 600. This should not have a significant impact on gaming.

Gaming Performance

The iGPU of the Celeron N4100 and N4120 is only suitable for very undemanding and old games. In our test, we were able to run titles such as Trackmania Nations Forever (now free2play) and Hearthstone. While Counter-Strike: GO ran smoothly in our benchmark, many internet games and other maps cause severe stuttering.

Emissions & Energy

System Noise

The economical Celeron N4100 does not need active cooling, which means the Y11 is completely silent even while under load. We also did not observe coil whine or electronic noise on our test device.

Temperature

In spite of the passive cooling and the compact chassis, the surface temperatures of the Y11 do not reach critical levels. Our calibrated probe registered a peak temperature of 38 °C (100.4 °F) after a prolonged period of extreme stress.

Speakers

Unfortunately, the installed speakers do not reach a very high maximum volume and due to their mediocre characteristics, they will not be satisfactory for audiophiles. That being said, they are still suitable for undemanding sound applications and listening to YouTube in quiet environments.

Energy Consumption

While idling, the Y11 is not very economical when taking into account the installed hardware. Here, an average laptop with the Celeron N4100 consumes significantly less power (about 20%). Under load, the consumption matches the average exactly. Stronger devices such as the Eve V, which is equipped with a Core i7-Y processor, tend to draw significantly more power on average.

Battery Life

According to BMAX, the Y11 is equipped with a 26.6-Wh lithium-ion battery. Windows detects 29.6 Wh and uses 28 Wh over the course of the preset 100-5% (according to the powercfg report). While users cannot expect record runtimes due to the small battery capacity, the battery life is very poor even compared to the Chuwi UBook CWI509, which is equipped with a similarly sized battery.

Pros

+ premium aluminum chassis
+ display can display colors accurately (requires a calibration)
+ M.2 SSD easy to upgrade

Cons

- weak battery life
- key legends hard to read
- below average N4100 performance

Verdict

The BMAX MaxBook Y11 is a small convertible with a 360-degree hinge (yoga style), an aluminum chassis and a cheap price tag. 8 GB of LPDDR4 dual-channel RAM and a swappable M.2 SSD with a capacity of 256 GB are the highlights of the system. The display offers multi-touch functionality and an overall pleasant visual experience. The color accuracy is fairly good, particularly after our calibration.

Compared to other devices in our database with the same SoC, the Celeron 4100 performs slightly below average. The older Gemini Lake processor is the system's bottleneck. Demanding tasks and games are not the Y11's area of expertise. Instead, the small dimensions and the rigid design of the convertible make it ideal for traveling. However, the small battery limits mobile use to just 4 hours. Thanks to USB Type-C Power Delivery, an external battery can be used to extend the battery life.

Good chassis and cheap price, but poor battery life.

At about 280 Euros (~$313), the BMAX Y11 belongs to the budget entry-level range. However, due to the Chinese manufacturer's base of operations, returns can be tricky. The cost of shipping the device off to China (at your own expense) can quickly turn this process into a poor economical choice. We were also confronted with this issue, since we had originally planned to buy the newer model with the Celeron N4120, but missed a small note on the Banggood webpage stating that devices from the European warehouse would still be equipped with the N4100. Users should also be aware of the customs and warranty conditions as well as CE marking requirements.
