We recently saw some dirt cheap Windows 10 laptops launch for $99, but those were powered by the old Intel Atom processors. Now however, a new 14.1-inch Windows 10 notebook powered by a Intel Celeron N3350 processor will hit the market in September for under $220:
This Windows 10 notebook is called AN10D, and also has 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 32GB of storage with 128GB microSD card support. The 14.1-inch screen has a traditional laptop-screen resolution of 1366 x 768.
It actually has ac Wi-Fi support so bandwidth speeds can be maxed out. Or, if you want to connect directly to the modem, it has a RJ45 connection too, in addition to a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, a mini-HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, and a DC power and charge jack.
The battery is of 4800 mAh capacity, and finally it has a 0.3MP front camera and stereo speakers.
With the Intel Celeron N3350 processor it can achieve single-core benchmark scores in Geekbench 4 at over 1400, or even more in performance mode. So that’s significantly more than an Intel Atom computer.
Just for reference, even the top of the line Intel Atom x7-8700 processor only scored around 1150 on average in single-core benchmarks. So, that makes the AN10D a little interesting.
There is one other Intel Celeron N3350 notebook available for the same amount of money right now, since the Acer AO1-132 is on sale for a few days for the same price, but then again this is a much smaller 11.6-inch notebook.
