Budget Jumper EZbook X4 laptop with Gemini Lake now shipping
The Gemini Lake series launched over 6 months ago, but its availability continues to be scarce even to this day. Few notable systems are currently shipping with Intel's 2nd generation low-power processor including the Chuwi GBox, Zotac CI329, and Acer's Swift 1.
Chinese PC manufacturers could soon change things as there are now more inexpensive laptops available with Gemini Lake CPUs. The latest is the 14-inch Jumper EZbook with a Celeron N4100 SoC and integrated UHD Graphics 600 GPU. The system is very likely passively cooled considering its light 1.3 kg weight and relatively thin 13.7 mm profile.
Other major features include a 1080p display, 4 to 8 GB of DDR4L RAM, 9600 mAh battery, dual-band WLAN, 2x USB 3.0 ports, and mini-HDMI. The 128 GB M.2 SSD should also be upgradeable as it is not embedded storage (eMMC). Perhaps surprisingly, the system even includes a backlit keyboard which we would not have expected based on its price.
The Jumper EZbook is now shipping with Windows 10 Home for $300 USD.
