Chinese device maker Hasee is showing off a 14 inch ultrbaook at CeBIT this week. It’s called the Hasee X300V and it appears to be positioned as a relatively inexpensive but reasonably powerful (and thin) laptop.

Hasee X300V

Mobile Geeks got a chance to check out the laptop. It’s got our basic ultrabook specs, including a case that’s less than 0.8 inches thick, a solid state disk and hard drive, and an Intel Ivy Bridge processor.

But the notebook has a plastic case and an underwhelming 14 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. The good news is that the notebook is likely to be pretty cheap – Hasee is looking to sell the X300V to distributors for around $300 (when you order 1000 units), which could give it a street price of around $500 or less.

It just probably won’t be called the Hasee X300V if and when you see it in the US and Europe.

The notebook features 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, VGA and HDMI ports, SD card reader, and an Ethernet jack.

  1. That keyboard doesn’t look so good. Be interesting to hear people’s impressions of it. I’m also very leery of core i7’s in laptops in general. I guess I’ve melted too many full blown laptops that had core i7s.

    1. i7’s don’t necessarily run any hotter than i5s and especially i3’s… Often they run cooler because they’re a higher bin part and are less likely to have defects that cause heat islands. TDP is actually a representation of thermal constraint at a given power level, not strictly a power consumption one, and i7’s are very comperable to the rest of their core brethren

      Sounds like the laptops you experienced that with are by companies that cut corners and didn’t put the necessary cooling in place to dissipate the TDP of that processor… Which is on the laptop maker, not the chip inside it.

      That said, if anything is going to have compromised cooling it’s going to be a cheap ultra thin laptop exactly like this.
