Tablets to Ultrabooks or Transformer tablets are not anymore uncommon, on the other hand, the PiPO Work W9s isn’t a tablet, rather a full fledge Ultrabook. It doesn’t transform into a tablet and thus, the keyboard isn’t detachable, it also has the aesthetics and resemblance of a Macbook Air.
TN Panel and Cherry Trail
Speaking of specs, it is similar to other tablets in the market. It is powered by Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5-8300 Quad Core processor with 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The laptop also comes with a 14.1 inch 720p Display on a TN Panel. Although it might not give you the sharpness of a 1080p or Retina Display, i think the respectable 720p HD is enough to handle games and apps without any hiccups. The laptop also runs the latest Windows 10 out of the box.
High Speed USB 3.0 and 10,000mAh battery
Furthermore, you are greeted with multiple options for IO, most notable of which is the Standard size USB 3.0 and Mini HDMI Port (1080p video out). Also worth mentioning is the 10,000mAh battery giving it around 7 to 8 hours of typical usage, but this number will depend on actual usage preference.
Probably the most enticing feature of the PiPo Work W9s is the price, at around $200, you get a full fledge Ultrabook that will give you decent performance for the price. You will also get Good Battery life and USB 3.0 connectivity. Although it might not be a powerhouse compared to their Intel Core M counterparts, it will still do decent gaming and excels more on light to moderate task. In terms of build quality, Pipo has been a reliable brand through the years and thus i don’t need to worry. Unfortunately, this isn’t a tablet or Transformer tablet, thus if you are looking for a tablet, then this probably isn’t for you.
