E FUN to launch its first Windows 10 notebooks in Q2 2016

E FUN has released a number of budget-priced tablets over the past few years, but in 2016, it will enter the notebook market for the first time with two new Windows 10 models. Both the Nextbook 11.6-inch convertible laptop and the 14-inch notebook will go on sale in the second quarter of 2016.

The notebooks were announced as part of E FUN's CES 2016 plans. The Nextbook 11.6-inch laptop will have a touchscreen display that can be rotated 360 degrees with its hinge. E FUN says:

"The Nextbook convertible laptop features an 11.6" 1366x768 IPS touch screen and 64GB of onboard storage memory with microSD card expansion. With a built-in webcam for video chatting, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi connectivity, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, and a microHDMI port, the Nextbook 11.6" laptop delivers the essential features you need for entertainment and work.

Here's what the Nextbook 14-inch notebook will be like:

"Perfect for students of any age and those looking to be more productive, the Nextbook laptop powered by Windows 10 features a large 14" 1366x768 screen and 32GB of onboard storage memory with microSD card expansion. Its built-in webcam is great for video chatting, Bluetooth 4.0 allows for connectivity with other devices, and a microHDMI port lets you mirror your screen onto an HDTV. With 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port, and a full laptop keyboard with touch pad, the Nextbook laptop gives you everything you need in a portable design."

The 11.6-inch laptop will be priced at $269.99 while the 14-inch notebook will cost $199.99.

  • Hmmm
  • i think its typo
  • We live in a world where 5" phone displays have over 1080p resolutions and on PCs with higher than 10" we have 768p displays.
  • this^
    the irony!
  • We also live in a world where production for smartphone displays far exceed those of notebook. Also, it's a full fledged PC for 249 dollars.
  • Ofc the production is large, how many people with broken screens on PC monitors or laptos do you see, how many clumsy people with broken phones do you see ? :) The companies count on you dropping your phone, it`s good for business.
  • Well, what I meant was, high production drives the cost down. That is why full HD smartphones have become a commonplace, the same cannot be said for PC displays where 1366*768 is still a very common resolution.
  • R&D it`s what costs more, and the technology is already here, technically there shouldn`t be any problem into craming a 10" 1080p OLED into a laptop ... they already do this crap on android tablets, what`s the catch that they don`t do it on PC ? Many manufacturers use now generic panels, just to cut down on prices, but when we speak PC, there`s nothing they can do about it!
  • We also live in a world governed by science. Physics says the distance you hold the screen impacts the size of pixel you can see. Pretty sure you use a laptop at a different distance than a phone. Honestly, if you can tell the difference between 1080 and 768 (outside of quantity of content displayed) on a laptop, I will gladly trade eye balls with you...assuming they are brown of wife digs my brown eyes :) I have a tablet with 768 and it looks the same to me as my 720 phone, 1080 desktop, and 1080 and 720 TVs. Side bar-plenty
    of phones still use 720p displays.
  • I have brown eyes :) and i can tell the difference from my Lumia 930 to my 24" 1080p screen or my 10.1" 768p laptop. True, you can`t really tell the difference when looking a let`s say a picture, but when we talk text or other thing that require pixel finesse, you can clearly see the difference. I can`t tell the difference though between a Lumia 930 running at 1080p vs my wife`s Galaxy S3 Neo running at 720p.
  • You use laptops at only a slightly longer distance as you would hold a tablet. Premium 8" tablets are at QHD (1440p) already. 720/768p on an 11" laptop isn't bad, but on 13"+ it's horrendous, can tell easily especially with text. Doesn't help that with the race to the bottom most 14" and 15.6" screens are poor quality too, not just low-res. Last year when I was looking for a 15.6" laptop with a good screen for my parents' I ended up getting a refurbished Asus model on ebay because there's a darth of options for 1080p IPS unless I went $1300+ on a premium laptop that had specs my parents didn't need at all. Btw I'm perfectly happy with the 720p screen on my 5" Blu WinHD LTE, I'm not some high-res proponent, but that same res on a laptop is too low!
  • Wow. It's 2016 and they're advertising that it has a webcam as a major selling point. Just.... Wow
  • No mention of RAM or processor. These are probably aimed at the 3rd world markets.
  • Or the market that just wants a simple laptop that works...
  • Don't they mean 'netbooks'? lol I mean....that's the same price and specs that netbooks had like what....5 years ago???????
  • If it looks like the one in the picture, then im all in.
  • These Nextbooks by E FUN are decent. I've bought a couple and the build quality is great for the price. Battery life usually isn't great, but that's all I've got to complain about for the price.
  • Nice, another Chromebook killer...
