TrekStor launches affordable SurfBook W1 and W2 Windows notebooks
The 14.1-inch W1 and W2 will launch this month for 250 Euros and 350 Euros, respectively. Core specifications include a Cherry Trail Atom SoC and 2 GB of RAM.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
