Infinix has managed to hit a pretty low price point for a slim-and-light laptop with an all-metal body, backlit keyboard, and 14-inch display. There are a few convenient features such as the webcam switch and USB Type-C fast charging, but also some quirks, mainly the cheap trackpad. The main way that Infinix seems to have reduced cost is by going with previous-gen processors, and that really isn't such a bad thing considering that even older laptops are expected to work for at least 3-4 years before they are outpaced by software. This obviously isn't the right laptop for gamers or anyone who needs serious processing power for content creation or any other kind of work. However if you're a student, professional or even home user who just wants to cover the basics of productivity, entertainment and communication, you now have another worthwhile choice in the laptop market. Given that Infinix's pricing strategy is not very clear and availability seems to be limited, we will have to go by the current market price, which is Rs. 49,999 for the Core i5 variant.

Infinix has done a good job with the InBook X1. The laptop is a perfect pick if you are a student, teacher or a college-goer. It also gets the job done if you are working professional and your job doesn’t require any technical stuff. For people in writing jobs, this laptop fits the bill as it only fulfils the need, it is also extremely lightweight and convenient to carry the device around. It has a decent enough screen so you can also watch movies and web shows on the laptop for long hours. The laptop is also equipped with powerful speakers. The battery life is good as it daily lasts for more than 10 hours on a single charge. However, the laptop is not suitable for heavy gaming or technical stuff. It can only handle the basic computing task well. The keys are big, but the response is too soft, the touchpad needs a lot of pressing. Overall, it is a good laptop if your needs are basic.

The Infinix INBook X1 is a good entry-level thin and light laptop but it falls short when you compare it to the competition. For around the same price, one can opt for Acer Aspire 5, which isn’t plagued by the build quality issues like the Infinix INBook X1 and also comes with an Intel 11th Gen Core-i5 CPU with Irix XE graphics card. The Infinix INBook X1 makes sense as your backup laptop or just a simple laptop for kids or students if the build quality issues are just model specifics, and for that I’d suggest going for the entry-level Intel 10th Gen Core i3 version which is Rs 10k cheaper but comes in an identical form factor.

Infinix Inbook X1 can be an ideal pick if you are looking for a mid range laptop for everyday usage. With metal design, backlit keyboard, decent battery life and i5 processor at Rs 45,999 makes it a deal clincher. Although the Infinix could have done better with the thick bezel and weight distribution, the impressive design and useful features makes it a suitable choice. We have seen several smartphone manufacturers entering the laptop market in recent year and this attempt by Infinix definitely makes competition fierce.

The Infinix InBook X1 isn’t made for demanding professionals, but it’s a very compelling option for beginners and average users including writers and students. Thanks to the Intel Core i5 processor, its 14-inch FHD display, and terrific keyboard and speakers, this notebook feels just right. If you are primarily writing, attending video calls, and streaming movies, I find the InBook X1 a nice notebook that perfectly balances price and performance. This is not designed for gaming or heavy tasks but it’ll be a huge game-changer for someone coming from a notebook running Windows 7 and old Intel Celeron processors. It’s a do-everything laptop that does not disappoint.

Retailing at RM2,399, the Infinix INBook X1 is a remarkable mid-range laptop that delivers almost everything you have come to expect on a more expensive laptop, there's nothing I can nitpick about and I absolutely recommend this over any other sub RM2000 laptops if you are willing to top up extra cash, unless you are brand biased, there's absolutely no reason not to give Infinix a chance.
