Onda oBook12
This Cherry Trail-powered 12.2-inch Windows 10 convertible features a rotating screen, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB storage, has a fanless design and promises up to 6 hours of autonomy.

Onda might not be well known outside Asia yet, but they have been in the business for a few years now and have a lot of products in their portfolio. A few months ago, they unveiled a convertible notebook powered by an Intel Atom x5 processor that had an 11.6-inch display and now its successor is ready to hit the market already. The oBook12 is a new 12.2-inch convertible that uses another Cherry Trail chip, namely the Intel Atom x7-Z8700.

The oBook12 has shown up on AliExpress and is listed as ready to ship in 23 days. In addition to the processor mentioned above, this convertible laptop has a touchscreen display with 360-degree rotating hinge, 4 GB of memory, 64 GB of eMMC storage, as well as a microSD slot. In terms of connectivity, it sports USB 3.0 and 2.0, micro USB, as well as HDMI, WiFi, and Bluetooth. Onda oBook12 runs Windows 10 Home and promises to offer up to 6 hours of battery life.

Pricing of this Windows 10 convertible is quite confusing since the same hardware setup is listed on AliExpress twice by the same seller and one of the listings shows $435 USD as starting price, while the other shows a price about $100 USD higher.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
