Foreword

Latest release in the range Yitaoera, we’ve been running tests onPortable 14,1…Your computer will not be limited to technical specifications, so we have built a test plan according to the use you will make of it.To make the choice easier, we have judged this Yitaoera Portable 14,1 according to what you are going to do with it.
This article will help you make the right choice according to your needs.

Portable 14,1 compatible with internet use?

If your need for a laptop comes down to surfing the web, whether on e-commerce or information sites, and to making a few tables in excel, you could be satisfied with this Portable 14,1. An inexpensive computer such as Portable 14,1 may seem to be the solution. The material used by Yitaoera are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In the end, it is a product that will make you think about changing it in less than 4 years.
A medium-sized, 14.1 inches-sized screen that you can slip into a computer bag and take with you on the go. The manufacturer offers a processor Intel Atom x5-E8000; A mid-range orientation. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. So certainly, with this laptop you have enough resources for internet surfing and word processing, but you may have to change it in less than 5 years. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 4 Gb of memory. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Your computer will work better and longer.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. If you want to have your holiday photos locally, you’ll soon reach the limit of 64 Gb. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 4 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. Batteries store little energy, and the computer consumes a lot of energy when it is used. In other words, you will have to keep this Portable 14,1 most of the time connected to the power cable.

Is Portable 14,1 one for watching movies and listening to music ?

You are considering laptops for standard multimedia use (watching movies, storing photos, listening to music)! Yitaoera offers the Portable 14,1 perfect for that. It’s easy to find much better ones, although you won’t find any in this price range.
In order to see if it will meet your needs, we have tested it for audio and video use.
Yitaoera has chosen a medium size screen to meet everyone’s needs. With its 14.1 inches and resolution of 1920×1080, it can be suitable for a lot of uses including watching films. The rendered image is well detailed, with a bright and vivid rendering. In the end, a homogeneous product that allows you to watch films and, with its 2.4 kg,it will be easy to take on the move.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Portable 14,1. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel Atom x5-E8000 is now outdated. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel HD Graphics, which with 4 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Regarding the connectivity part, Yitaoera has made efforts with available 4 ports. It’s better than the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
It Portable 14,1 is one of the worst endowed laptops on the market. Indeed, with 4 hours of autonomy, it is one of the worst specifications. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.

Portable 14,1 the right choice for travelling connected ?

It Portable 14,1 is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. At least that’s what we find out a priori. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
With its 2.4 Kg, it Portable 14,1 is one of the heaviest in its class. It’s unpleasant to carry. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The weight is mainly related to the size of the screen. The explanation mainly comes down to the size of the screen: 14.1inches.
The backlit keypad of this Portable 14,1 is simple and convenient for when you’re in a taxi or a dimly lit subway. In addition, the materials used are of good quality.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. The screen shows an interesting result.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
Too bad for the processor Intel Atom x5-E8000 that equips this computer; it is one of the weakest of the moment and moreoverit consumes too much power.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Yitaoera; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 4 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 64 Gb SSD hard drive. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
With this model, Yitaoera definitely designed a computer easily transportable, but not too small. The Portable 14,1 is right in the middle compared to the competition with 14.1 inches and an acceptable weight.
The connector part is very interesting, with 4 inputs available. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Finally with the Portable 14,1, Yitaoera deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.

The Portable 14,1 to make audio or video editing. 

For non-professional use for audio or video editing, this Portable 14,1 may be fine. It is correctly equipped on the processor level for speed and RAM for task management; This is below what dedicated computers do for professional use, but a good level for those who need it.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Atom x5-E8000. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 64 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
The designers of Yitaoera have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The Portable 14,1 has only got one, with total 64 Gb storage for your movies and music. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
With 4 hours in battery-only calculation mode, you’ll have little latitude. This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. Maybe the next model will be better off.
For the connector part, the Portable 14,1has the USB3 format. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.
With this Portable 14,1 product, Yitaoeraoffer us a good start for an advanced use of audio and video editing. You will also be able to use it every day to browse the internet. In short, an interesting choice in this price range.

The Portable 14,1 for online or local games.

There are very few laptops today that do not allow you to play video games. It appears that in terms of performance or on the issue of general cooling, this Portable 14,1 is one of the models in the average. On the other hand, if you have to go through several hours, these same components will seem weak.
The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed the visual rendering will be. With a resolution in 1920×1080 this laptop fis one of the best of its class.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Ideal for old design games, it has difficulty restoring the images and colors of the latest online games. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Not really designed for gaming, which leads to a display system that is a little behind the times Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.With 64 Gb it Portable 14,1is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
For online gaming, it Portable 14,1 has high quality Wi-Fi. Interesting when you can play outside with full broadband.
You will limit your travels with this laptop; the cause? Its weight of 2.4 Kg which makes it one of the biggest on the market.
For autonomy, 4 hours, this model is worse than most other laptops.
So it’s a middle ground for gaming; enough performance at the right price. You can also use it for word processing if you need it.

The Portable 14,1 for office automation.

Although this does not affect the majority of users, it is important to know the OS of this hardware. The OSes available on the market are all different technical ecosystems with their own applications. Perfectly office oriented, this Portable 14,1 is efficient.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
Given its size, it is not advisable to be taken away too often. This model weighs 2.4 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
The numeric keypad is not present on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
Yitaoera chose the matt tile option for thisPortable 14,1 that does not reflect light. You will benefit from a more diffuse natural image, which has the advantage of causing less eye strain.
When working in semi-dark areas, you will appreciate the backlighting of the keypad on this Portable 14,1.
The storage of this model, 64 Gb, is one of the smallest. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
In short, it Portable 14,1 is perfectly suited for word processing and spreadsheet use. Well thought out in terms of ergonomics.

The Portable 14,1- in summary

This Portable 14,1 will be a one-time choice, and for moderate use. With an interesting price, it will be able to do the job if you know you’re going to change in 3/4 years.
