The Jumper EZbook Air is another Macbook Air inspired Ultrabook and is also the successor to the Jumper EZbook 2. It is a smaller and thinner at just 11.6 inches and has a smaller 8000mAh battery. But does offer Dual Band WiFi support and USB Type C connectivity. It also offers a much more Macbook Air oriented design, boasting Larger Keycap design at 15mm making it ideal for typing.
In terms of hardware, it is fairly similar to the Ezbook 2, equipped with a modest Intel Atom X5 Z8300 Cherry Trail Chipset with 4 GB RAM. Moreso, it also comes with 128 GB of eMMC Storage to boot and a 64 bit Windows 10 Home Edition. As of recently, there is still no word for a Dual OS version.
Speaking of the Dual Band WiFi support, it seems a big deal because usually Realtek flock these type of affordable Ultrabooks. But now, Jumper has made use of Intel AC3160, which readily supports Dual Band WiFi out of the box.
The laptop will also offer a an All Aluminum Shell material with CNC crafted design, and judging by the pictures, they are really making it a carbon copy. At its innards is also a decent size 8000mAh battery.
It also has a very minimalist design, with only 2 ports available, 3.5mm Audio Port and a USB Type Port, meaning it is very limited in Peripheral connectivity.
A winner in style points
The Jumper Ezbook Air is clearly a referenced to Macbook Air, and judging from the design choices and product placement, it is going through that path. One thing you will also notice, is that the Ultrabook is very minimalistic, unlike the predecessor with support for HDMI and USB 3.0, it is very limited in this area. Probably to also reduce the weight and the thickness. It boasts just 0.4mm thickness when unfolded, making it the thinnest yet. However, you should expect that Atom X5 Chipset isn’t as powerful as compared to the newer Intel Skylake, and thus, performance will likely be similar to other sub$200 tablets or even Sub$100 tablets with the same hardware fitted. It will not likely break benchmark points, rather be more on style points. Also the Dual Band WiFi support and USB Type C is a very welcome addition.
