Onda’s oBook 11 is a Lenovo Yoga-style ultrabook laptop


1453171208013943285Lenovo’s Yoga series shot to fame with its flexible body, and since that there have been numerous attempts at recreating the design by other brands.

The newest to jump ship is Onda, a brand that has launched it’s own Windows PC with the same hybrid design.

Known as the Onda oBook 11, the device packs mild specs to make for a moderately powerful netbook. This includes the Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 64bit quad-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and more.

Onda oBook 11: The Lenovo Yoga alternative that could be?

Priced at under the $300 mark, the oBook 11 could be something that could catch the fancy of people who use their machines to spend time online — bloggers, writers, and the like.

Full specifications of the tablet include, besides the aforementioned, 64GB of storage, a 11.6-inch 1920 x 1080p display, 2 mega-pixel front facing camera, and a 30Wh battery. The factory claims this gives the tablet a 7 hour battery life.

The oBook 11 runs Windows 10 out of the box. Would you consider paying the ~$100 premium of this laptop over traditional Chinese tablets?

    Only a fool would buy this piece of Onda garbage, I would pay the premium to get the original over this any day. Like all Onda products the ROM is atrocious, full of bugs that will drive you mad.

      its runs Windows 10.
      I’ve owned Onda stuff in the past and found it to be fine. I probably won’t buy this, but it seems like a pretty decent machine.

      Easy there…. This one has Windows 10 so unless the drivers are crappy ( most are from Intel though ) or there’s something between the drivers and hardware this will work just fine.

    Since my last model bought from onda 2 months ago was the model V919 without 3g (remember, No 3 g), the display was with a high resolutin but made from some plastic. the battery last up to 3 hours with the screen open and wifi..nothing more. sold that one, and i wont ever buy a tablet from onda

    If this is just 100 $ I consider it a best buy.

    Onda is a no go for me…BTW Z8300 is weak and getting hot easily.

    For web use and low gfx games, Z3637 is sufficient and cheaper (X98)
    For heavy use, you’d like to buy a Core M tablet
