Model: Eyebrows rose when the EZbook 3 by Jumper was suggested as a possible choice for a laptop. This Chinese manufacturer might not be as widely known as the likes of Lenovo or Acer; yet it deserves the benefit of the doubt and is worth checking out. On first impression, the EZBook 3 is pretty similar to its predecessor, the EZBook 2. What distinguishes the two is that the former had a metal lid whilst the latter is all plastic. This does not render the successor any less robust; in fact this makes the EZbook 3 much more lightweight. Furthermore, its profile is rather slim at 8.0 mm. The front panel of the laptop is silver in colour with the chic Jumper logo emblazoned on it. Upon lifting its flap, one will greeted with a beautiful display which is framed by small bezels. The display is 14.1 inch FHD with 1920x1080 resolution. It offers good experience for watching videos and browsing the web. The display also has a matte finish, and hence is more glare resistant in direct sunlight. Specs-wise, Jumper opted to upgrade the EZbook 3 with the latest dual-core Intel Apollo Lake Celeron N3350 with 4 GB of RAM. This processor is nowhere near the performance of Intel’s Core series. It nevertheless is more efficient than the Atom series. Overall, it is ideal for performing basic tasks such as word processing and web browsing. Running demanding software and games on this laptop may not fare too well.
The available storage is arguably pretty limited at 64 GB. Nevertheless, if it is pretty much slated for performing basic everyday tasks, this should not be a major issue. Furthermore, storage can be expanded via a MicroSD card. One of the key features of the EZbook 3 is its huge battery. It is packed with a 10,500 mAh battery which is rather remarkable for its size. This laptop is also adequately provided with various ports for connectivity and this includes both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports. Early reviews seem to indicate some grouses on its keyboard as it does not seem to have as much travel as its rivals. However, this should not be a significant drawback particularly considering its incredibly low price. In all, the EZbook 3 is a fully functional laptop, which is well worth the money. It is suitable for those who want a thin and lightweight device for light work on-the-go. Its only drawbacks are its low storage option and weak processor but all this is compensated with its low selling price.
