The laptop has great specs for its asking price!
The InBook X1 series is the first laptop from Infinix and its parent company Transsion. The InBook X1, powered by an 10th-gen Intel Core i3 processor, has arrived in the Philippines on time for the Shopee Brands Festival yesterday. Pre-orders are done but what’s stopping you from buying the laptop after that date?
The InBook X1 has a FHD+ 16:9 IPS LCD panel measuring 14 inches and brightness measuring at 157 nits. This display has a 180° viewing angle which is not so terrible for an IPS panel, in fact, it’s expected from such a panel. Most laptops you get at this price would give you a terrible TN panel with awful viewing angles and colour reproduction. Although we do hope they aren’t lying, as 157 nits of brightness is pretty low.
The laptop weighs 1.48kg and is built on an aluminum frame for that premium-looking feel. It comes in two colours: Starfall Grey and
For performance, the laptop uses a typical budget laptop setup: 8GB LPDDR4 RAM and 256GB SSD powered by an Intel Core i3-1005G1 and integrated Intel UHD graphics. The laptop isn’t exactly made for gaming, but rather it’s built for casual and light work use. This laptop would heat faster than your very own stove if you use it for gaming. According to Infinix, the laptop does have a cooling system, a proprietary cooling system called ICE STORM cooling system 1.0
For the battery, the laptop uses a 55Wh battery with 65W fast charging. This battery should be good enough to last you a day and since it charges fast, you will have enough time to go back to your work before the battery completely dies.
Below are the ports of the laptop, it still has more ports than the more expensive Realme Book:
- 1x USB-C
- 2x USB 3.0
- 1x USB 2.0
- 1x HDMI 1.4
- 1x SD Card Slot
- 1x 3.5mm audio port
For connectivity, the laptop supports both Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. It has a 720p webcam for video calls and conferences and comes with a few nifty sensors usually seen on smartphones: Accelerometer, light sensor, proximity, gyro-meter and magnetic induction sensor. In addition, the laptop comes with a fingerprint sensor that also functions as a power button. Translated to a phone, this is equivalent to a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The laptop also has a chiclet keyboard with a backlight, 4x stereo speakers and two microphones.
The laptop also became the top selling laptop during the 10/10 sale thanks to an unusually affordable price from the specs it offers. Unlike other laptops which would normally give you an older generation Intel Core or a new generation Intel Pentium processor, this laptop gives you the Intel Core i3 10th gen, and among other things, also a full-resolution IPS LCD panel, others would have given you a 1366×768 resolution panel, which is not exactly FHD+. The laptop by default runs Windows 10 although it is not confirmed whether it’s getting a free upgrade to Windows 11 like the Realme Book.
As we mentioned, it is the best-selling laptop during the 10/10 sale. Its default price is Php 24,990 but was further discounted to just Php22,990 during the debut 10/10 sale, which is still saying something for a laptop with such a high calibre.
