Teclast X3 Plus 11.6-inch Windows 10 2-In-1 Tablet With 6GB RAM, Intel Celeron On Pre-Release Sale For $299

The recenty unveiled Teclast X3 Plus is enjoying a pre-release sale on Geekbuing for two days right now, where the pre-order price is cut to $299, which could be a lot of tablet for the money, with this being a brand new tablet with pretty good performance: http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Teclast-X3-Plus-11-6-Inches-Tablet-PC-376155.html

From the outside, the Teclast X3 Plus falls ito the category of a Microsoft Surface clone, which is a good thing, and includes a multi-angle built-in kickstand. If Microsoft had made this tablet themselves, it would have been between the Surface 3 and an 8GB RAM version of Surface Pro 4. But since it’s made by Microsoft’s partner Teclast, it has premium performance but still costs less than a Surface 3.

The performance is good for the price, with a quad-core Intel Celeron N3450 processor that outdoes the latest Intel Atom series processors. So coupled with 6GB of DDR3L RAM, and 64GB of storage with 128GB microSD expansions support, it’s off to a good start.

The screen is 11.6 inches wide, with a 1920 x 1080 diplay resolution. It can be bought with an active stylus, but I don’t know what kind of digitizer support it has yet. The keyboard is a Surface style keyboard, but it’s optional.

The rest of the specs are more normal for Windows 10 tablets in this price range, with a 2MP front camera and 5MP rear camera, stereo speakers, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Buetooth 4.0.

It has a 8000 mAh battery with 3A charging from a DC jack. Other ports are a USB 3.0 port, a micro-HDMI port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

In terms of design, it is a little heavier than a Surface Pro 4 though, with a weight of 909 grams, and a thickness of 10 mm.
