TrekStor launches SurfBook W1 and W2 affordable Windows notebooks
The two inexpensive SurfBook W1 and W2 notebooks will each have the following specifications:
- 14.1-inch FHD IPS display
- Intel quad-core Atom x5-Z8300 SoC (up to 1.84 GHz, 2 MB Intel SmartCache)
- 2 GB DDR3 RAM
- 32 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD support up to 128 GB
- USB 3.0, USB 2.0, mini-HDMI, 3.5 mm audio
- WLAN 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz only) + Bluetooth 4.0
- 2 MP webcam and microphone
- 9000 mAh internal Li-Ion battery for up to 7.5 hours video playback
- 347 x 229 x 19.5 mm
- 1.5 kg
The subnotebooks are essentially identical in hardware and will only have software differences. The SurfBook W1 ships with Windows 10 Home 32-bit while the W2 will have the 64-bit equivalent. Both the W1 and W2 will be available in Germany and other European regions before the end of this year for 250 Euros and 350 Euros, respectively. Unfortunately, no other processor options are available outside of the Cherry Trail Atom SoC. A proper ULV Core ix, for example, could have boosted the overall performance of the subnotebook.
The German manufacturer also revealed new tablets and convertibles earlier this year at IFA 2016.
