When it comes to performance iBall CompBook i360 is almost average. It can perform basic functions like HD video streaming, browsing and office applications without any excessive exposure. We had a little struggle with WiFi and there was no shortage of Ethernet port.
But then, you do not normally get this ethernet port on the laptop. You thought that 13kg is 11.6 inches short of the price mark, but once you believe that it is also a pair of tablets, then it seems a bit more appropriate. Even so, it seems a little unnecessary. You are not going to take any heavy lifting with this laptop. If you are looking for an affordable laptop for basic needs then you can look elsewhere, but if this is a 2-in-1 budget then you want and you need a touch interface, iBall is not very bad.
iBall CompBook i360: Detailed
When it comes to budget laptops under `15,000 / – then you think that most of the today’s brands have some or the other which offer in that segment, obviously, most of the laptops in this segment are of entry-level hardware and Use components. However, iBall may be trying to increase the bar here by offering a convertible, 2-in-1 option
The iBall CompBook i360 is a 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop that gets converted into a tablet. And at the cost of Rs. 12,999 / -, i360 looks like a compelling offer on the surface. Okay, let’s see if the i360 is actually worth its price.
IBall CompBook i360 is a power adapter, a user guide, a clean cloth for display, a warranty card, a feedback form that you can send back to iBall CompBook i360, and for some reason, comes with Micro-USB for USB cable.
Budget laptops are limited if a quality of budget is limited. The iBall CompBook i360 is no exception, and this segment has the convenience of a plastic build, like most laptops. The overall appearance is not very bad; Good to see the color of gold champagne.
The I360 uses a very strong double-hinge system, it keeps putting at almost any angle. It is a convertible, so the display can be flipped all the way back and can be used as a tablet. Of course, you can stop midway and use it in ‘stand’ and ‘tent’ mode.
Touchpad uses a broad clickable touch area instead of left and right click buttons. To avoid sacrificing on the touchpad surface area, we often see in some small laptops that we have no scope with the touchpad, as we have While the laptop is 17mm thick while typing, it is very thin, but it looks a little heavy on your hands at 1.35 kgs.
That of physical connectivity. We have two USB ports, one 2.0, and others 3.0. There is also a mini-HDMI port, a 3.5mm headphone and microphone run zak, and a micro SD card. There is no full SD card reader
IBall i360 WiFi B / G / N and Bluetooth 4.0 features. There is no ethernet port in this segment, which is common in laptops in this segment. However, we appreciate the USB-to-Ethernet adapter with laptops. The laptop also has a VGA webcam.
IBall i360 Intel runs on Atom X5-Z8300 society. X5 performs similarly to Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. It is sufficient for the device such that the i360 should mainly be used mainly for lighting functions such as browsing and office. In addition, this SOC does not really need any active cooling and does not do such heavy work unless it should be used in the first place.
I360 made quick on PCMark Home at 1285, 1384, and 1142, respectively, Creative Quick and Working Quick Benchmark I360 is powered by Intel HD Graphics 5300. When it comes to power consumption, it is not able to play high intensive games. Consequently, i360 performed quite odd in the 3D mark benchmark. However, it is able to play simple gaming apps and old games in the lower setting.
It was not possible to run the most 3DMark benchmark, but he managed to run Cloud Gate, Ice Storm, and Sky Diver, returning the score of 1585, 17 9 42, and 799, respectively.
Speakers and Mic
Speakers of the I360 are located near the outer layers, which are next to the grip. It can be quite loud but do not expect any high-quality audio from these speakers. Speakers are also golden, whenever in tablet mode The laptop has two microphones, each located on top of the keyboard, either near the hinge. They were really surprisingly good.
I360 does not have much in it. I think, considering the tight space constrictions, it’s a good thing to do as a bloatware, which saves some apps and games from the Windows Store. The laptop has an internal flash storage of 32 GB which can expand through a micro SD card. Out of 32g, you only have about 20 GB for your own use, you definitely want an SD card.
Ball has placed a huge battery of 10,000 MAH in the Kampubuk i360. IBall has 7 hours of working hours, 7 hours video playback and 20 hours of music. Okay, we can assure you that with the widespread use, the i360 should end easily for about 7 hours. If this is not being used extensively, then it will be easily finished throughout the day. The only fault is the time it takes to charge. Which is insecure with that small 5 V output charger.
Here is the right idea with the iBall CompBook i360, but unfortunately its performance requires reconsideration. This type of functionality is not easy at laptops at this price, which is one of the reasons that big brands have not adopted this concept. 13999, iBall version of a convertible laptop is not a very good product and we think you will be better with traditional laptops.
Interestingly, iBall offers a price model of Flip-X5, with 2,000 high (but less premium selling), which is similar to the i360 on paper, but with the full-HD display. We can not really comment on its performance because we have not seen it in person, but at least you have a very fast performance with that model.
Battery life for iBall CompBook i360 is a very reducing factor, as well as with the touchscreen, one of the least expensive Windows 10 machines in the market, we will make sure that many people will be the appeal. However, if you are If you need serious computing nearby, then you should look elsewhere.
