Chinese device maker Voyo’s latest laptop is a convertible with an 11.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen display and a 360 degree hinge that allows you to fold the screen back and use the computer as a tablet.
It’s called the Voyo VBook A 1, and the laptop also features an Intel Celeron N3450 “Apollo Lake” processor, 4GB of RAM, and a reasonably affordable price tag.
The VBook A1 is available for pre-order from Geekbuying for $300.
The laptop is powered by Intel’s 6 watt, quad-core Apollo Lake processor and features a 12,000 mAh battery, micro HDMI 1.4 output, a 3.5mm audio jack, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, and a 2MP webcam.
There are stereo speakers and the system supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
It has an IPS display with wide viewing angles, and while there are some pictures showing the Vbook A1 with a pen, it’s a capacitive stylus. The Vbook A1 doesn’t have an active digitizer and the screen does not support pressure sensitive input.
Interestingly, the VBook A1 seems to have a dual-storage setup. There’s 32GB of eMMC flash storage and a 128GB M.2 SSD. The Geekbuying page also suggests there’s a second SSD slot if you want to add up to 512GB of additional storage.
And if you don’t want to open up the case to add storage, there’s also a microSD card reader with support for cards up to 128GB.
The Voyo VBook A1 measures 11.4″ x 7.7″ x 0.6″ and weighs about 2.6 pounds.
I suspect we’ll start to see more Apollo Lake laptops and convertibles from companies that have a bigger presence in the US and Europe in the coming months. But I also suspect they’ll have higher price tags and I don’t know that they’ll have unusual features like the multiple storage options that come with the VBook A1.
