this is exactly why I stopped buying "branded" laptops and took the plunge and got myself china branded ones.

no more acer laptops.
no more anus laptops.
no more hp laptops.

laptops as in plural ok. i buy a bunch of laptops every year.

I got a Chuwi. rock solid.
I bought icube. rock solid. battery is huge as well.
and most recent purchase was alldocube thinker. super, super awesome laptop. super bright 3000x2000 touchscreen. 10k mah battery somemore.

best decision I ever made on pc hardware.

How's gaming on those China laptops

no issues. it's exactly as what you'd expect.

best part is the bios. lu mau underclock ka, undervolt ka, up to you. the options are even more than desktop mobos, no joke (for the thinker model).



granted it's not perfect, and you have to open it up to add thermal paste to reduce temp by -20C, but absolutely spectacular laptop.

I got it for RM1.5k during 12.12 sale at lazatda.

Well I got myself an ultrabook grade, so yeah.

I need the battery life, and this one more than delivers. set it to standby, and it'll last for more than a day of normal usage, no joke.

if I use it almost continuously with almost zero brightness (still very bright compared to other laptops, the screen is seriously bright), it's about 5-7 hours.

research a bit, then take the plunge and buy china branded laptops.

I went all in. never been happier. you get so much for so little.

best part is, if you go to shenzhen, all laptops are upgradable. even ones that western brands try so hard to make it unupgradable.
