Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more intended for multimedia, and others more for games.Price and type of technology alone do not justify the choice of a model.To help you, we have tested this model according to several parameters.
After reading this article you will know if this model suits your needs.
P1 adapted to surf the internet?
Your needs are almost exclusively internet browsing and some word processing documents, but you don’t want any quality defects in this laptop.To be able to perform regular tasks that will not deteriorate over time.
It is in this spirit that LincPlus has developed this P1.A well-made laptop that positions itself as mid-range compared to its competitors and because of its price. Material that seem to be well-designed.
It’s almost the perfect tool for travelling. A screen 13.3 inches that makes this model transportable anywhere. This laptop is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this P1 on your lap. The materials appear to be designed to last several years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care LincPlus has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The manufacturer offers a processor Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs; A mid-range orientation. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. The compromise could be on a model with a smaller screen size but with a better processor. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. With less than a 4 Gb of RAM, it P1 is a fair one. Chances are you’ll have to add some memory over time. In terms of memory, you will be assured of having a machine that is more fluid.
The disk size of this laptop is among the smallest on the market. With only 64 Gb, LincPlus considers that you won’t need to store too many files locally, and that you’ll rather do it on a public cloud. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but if you need to, remember to have a USB key with you.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 10 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. This is one of the most important laptops on the market at the moment compared to other laptops. A feature that will keep you surfing for a long time.
P1 the right choice for watching movies ?
This P1 is a sensible option for anyone who will use it for watching movies and listening to music. The model has sufficient basic equipment for this purpose.
Through all the available laptops, you will know if, despite an average score, it corresponds to your needs.
This small model is equipped with a thumb screen 13.3, in 1920×1080, and a good quality of colours. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The big advantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop that weighs only a 1.4 kilogram.
For the sound part, the P1 is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs that is several years old now. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD Graphics 600, 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, LincPlus has made efforts with available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
As for the batteries, you could almost replace your TV set with this P1 one. You get 10 hours of battery life, which is better than many other models. No need to constantly check the battery level; you’ll be able to watch movies and listen to music for a long time.
The P1 to use while travelling.
The main interest of the laptop, is how easy it can be taken away. With this in mind, we tested the P1. Is he home-work oriented? Or will you be able to take it on a trip? These are the questions we will answer. Or should this use be confined to going from the living room to your kitchen.
However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in this category. When sitting with the computer on your lap, it is perfectly wedged to prevent it from tipping over. The 13.3 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
Note that the screen of this P1 being touch screen, you will be able to do without the mouse. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. The accuracy of touch in navigation is without problem.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
The processor Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs is inferior to other competitive products.
Note that like all manufacturers, LincPlus is optimistic about the autonomy of this P1. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of LincPlus; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
With this model you have one of the best autonomy of the moment with 10 hours.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 64 Gb. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. Thanks to this, LincPlus was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who will need more space, this P1 will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. Its 13.3 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
On the connector side, it P1 has 4 ports. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
LincPlus clearly provides with this P1 a very good choice for the trip.
P1 the right choice for audio or video editing ?
If you’re serious about editing and creating music, then you pay a lot of attention to processor speed and memory. It appears that this P1meets this need perfectly. Since the last generation designed by LincPlus, there have been many improvements on the components. This laptop will facilitate multitasking, and you will be able to simultaneously run applications such as Photoshop, Magix Video or Vegas pro with an operating Windows 10 S system.
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 Celeron 2.56 GHz 2 coeurs. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. The P1 allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 64 Gb. It’s a product that provides enough space to save all your audio and video creations.
As with many laptops, autonomy is a delicate subject. Being only on batteries, you have 10 hours of autonomy at your disposal. As a reminder, with such a powerful laptop, it’s hard to do much better LincPlus.
On the connection side, the P1i s equipped with USB 3 technology. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. 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 the P1, you’re moving towards a very good product. And much more if you finally decide to use it only for word processing or web browsing, instead of audio video editing. And for the right price/quality ratio.
A quality product, designed by LincPlus with facilities on the use in audiovisual editing mode.
P1 the right choice to play online?
Laptops, thanks to the rise in performance of processors and graphics cards, allow some people to gamble. It appears that in terms of performance or on the issue of general cooling, this P1 is one of the models in the average. But if you’re used to playing the latest games of the moment, you’ll soon reach the limits.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
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.
Besides the amount of storage space is clearly insufficient.With 64 Gb it P1is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.4 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
An excellent autonomy of 10 hours, will allow you to play almost anywhere.
So it’s a middle ground for gaming; enough performance at the right price. And if necessary, you can use it for internet browsing and e-mail.
Is the P1 adapted to office automation ?
Like the majority of its competitors, LincPlus has designed P1 for office automation. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
LincPlus has designed this new laptop for the majority of users. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 S that’s running it.
Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. This model, with its 1.4 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
The storage of this model, 64 Gb, is one of the smallest. If you’re working on shared documents in the cloud, such as Office365 or Google drive, no problem.
In conclusion, this laptop is interesting. Well placed in terms of price, it will meet your needs for office use.
Finally, the P1….
Hard to do very well for all purposes; in any case this computer is doing well. With the P1 you can be sure to have an efficient laptop, compared to competitors.
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
– office tasks
And we highly recommend this laptop for :
– travel use
– making audio and video editing
