  • Looks nice. No thunderbolt 3 ?

    As far as I know it does not have it.

    What you need it for in such note? I much prefer USB 3.0 and SD reader

  • Oh this would be nice!

    But I just got a Jumper EZBook 3 Pro, I think I only paid US$229? With free shipping.

    Battery life is great, very compact and lightweight.

    But.... can't playback ProRes HQ files from my BMPCC in VLC :-/ :-( Plays ProRes LT fine however!

    Anyway, I just wanted it as a personal laptop for casual usage, plus as an on set tool for data offloading (thanks to the 2x USB3.0 ports!).

  • I'm so tempted to get one of these! I've seen a lot of reviews regarding the general use and gaming performance of the Mi Notebook Pro, but I was wondering if anyone here has any experience editing on one of these machines. I wonder how well it edits 4K footage in Premiere and if it gets hot and throttles under heavy load.

    Cooling seems good.

    For performance - it is same as i5 4 core desktop + GT1030 GPU. 4K must work very good.

  • Can you rip out the i5 and put in an i7 4+8......

  • @DrDave There's already a configuration with an i7 and 16GB of RAM.

  • @kin869 Looks good. The i7-8550U is a 14nm 4+8.
