It scores high in design, usability and value but scores moderately in the features and performance department.

The machine is equipped with a screen size of 15.6 inches and has a weight of 2.2kg along with a black and dark grey plastic chassis of 25mm. The UltraNote II is available in different price ranges with the low-end model starting at £387 inclusive of VAT and the upgraded model goes up to £516 inclusive of VAT.

The machine is powered by a 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i3-4110M processor along with an 8GB DDR3 memory. The device’s graphics are supported by Intel’s HD4600, a chip that performs well but lacks the sheer gaming grunt of the Iris range. Its screen has a pixel resolution of 1920 x 1,080 along with an IPS display. The UltraNote II is also available in a screen size of 14 inches.

The machine provides a wide range of options in the storage section. The user has the option of large hard disks, hybrid disks and full-sized SSDs from companies like Intel, Samsung and Kingston. Additionally, you also have the option to add an SSD to its mSATA slot.… Read the rest
