Starting today, it’s possible to pre-order the Teclast X5 Pro or Teclast Tbook X5 Pro which is its full name, and today’s news should go down well, cause this tablet packs a lot of sensible power in so many of the right places. The order price is $620 at the moment, and the Teclast X5 Pro release date is January 21, 2017:
8GB RAM and 246GB SSD storage sure is nice, but the pinnacle for most customers I imagine is the newest quad-core 7th generation Intel Core processor m3-7Y30 “Kaby Lake” processor at 1 GHz to 2.6 GHz which is significantly more powerful than the 6th gen. m3-6Y30 processor. With that chip we also get the Intel HD Graphics 615 GPU.
8GB of DDR3L RAM should make sure that the short term memory will keep up with the processor on this tablet too, with no bottlnecks, and it has an 240GB of fast SSD storage too. So the basic hardware that runs this Windows 10 tablet computer is good, and you can easily connect the Teclast X5 Pro to external displays/monitors.
The screen is 12.2 inches wide, with Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution and 10-point touch with digitizer support. The benefit of not having even higher resolution is imporved battery life. But the battery life is still just 4 hours on a charge of the 5000 mAh battery, in a tablet that weighs 911 grams and is 8 mm thick, and also has a built-in kickstand.
Of the other important Teclast X5 Pro specs, we must include the dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi cover and Bluetooth 4.0, a most welcome USB Type-C port, and a 2MP front camera and 5MP rear camera, and stereo speakers. It has a separate DC charge port too, which will keep the USB C port open, even though the USB C port supports both charging and USB peripherals simultaneously. And this tablet has a micro-USB port and micro-HDMI port too.
The keyboard and stylus is not included for the first adaptors of this tablet, but my personal guess is that the keyboard probably isn’t more than a month or two behind the Teclast X5 Pro launch.
