Speaking of Chinese laptops, this one runs Remix OS (for $125)


Small-time Chinese companies have had their eyes on the laptop market for a long, long time. Earlier today, one behemoth that goes by the name of Xiaomi revealed its first laptop, opening the floodgates for a lot more.

Onda is a Chinese tablet maker that’s been around for a long while (even before Xiaomi came into existence). With the line between tablet PCs and laptops blurring, a lot of 2-in-1 devices are making it to the fore – the Onda oBook10 SE is just another.

As the name would suggest, the device is an upgrade to an existing variant. This one though, doesn’t come with Windows 10 or (pure) Android OS; it instead features the interesting RemixOS. That said, RemixOS is based on Android should you not be aware.

Its specs include an Intel Z3735F processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800p display, a 2 mega-pixel front camera (no camera on the rear), and a 5400mAh battery. All of this for $125 shipped.

It clearly isn’t the most powerful tablet PC/laptop hybrid around (also, the keyboard is a separate purchase), but RemixOS can be fun to use… and the oBook10 SE doesn’t cost too much. That said, it may not be the best device to get work done on the move.

    Well, thanks for the news, but, NO, not for me 🙂

    This device has no redeeming features, rubbish SoC, low res display and the worst manufacturer on the planet. Any device bearing the onda name is a waste of the planets resources, there are tons of decent tablets that should get a mention way before this one. The only good thing is the OS, I really like remix.

      Agreed. Remix is actually a rather nice rendition of android for big displays. I have the Remix Mini which I got from kickstarter.

    useless. Also this company has not a good reputation, I’ve tested a few Teclast products and are working all flawless after almost two years, at that price you can get some proper licensed win 10 (not windows wannabe like remix) 4gb+64gb products,

      Personally I’d say Teclast has gone down hill since they started dabbling with the Cherry Trail stuff… Their Baytrail tablets were much better! Maybe not for pure grunt or gaming, but definitely better looking with smaller bezels and better wifi etc, etc…

      The only Teclast tablet I bought for a gist, GOT MAD… so no, Teclast is not good.

    I have heard nothing but bad things from this brand. Like the Elephone of Tablets/notebooks.

    I wouldn’t even consider it in gold for a start!

    Why all the ‘pretentious’ gold crap!?!?!?!?

    Z3735F in 2016 ? c’mon… can’t be serious.
    It’s like having a MT6752 in a laptop.

    Onda makes shitty stuff, this is a fact! Have bought some of their tablets before, became junk after a short while, stay far away from this brand!

    No thanks I’ve made the mistake of buying an Onda once; definitely I won’t do it again.

      What was wrong with the tablet ?

      • AeRoberto
        August 5, 2016

        Almost everything, starting from the terrible UI in android, the almost unusable and laggy W10 (probably bad drivers). Luckily it fell from the table, so I had to change for a Teclast, which was definitely better, although with its problems.

          I see, tnx. Chris, from techtablets site, said, chinese tablets, ara a lottery, one just cant know what to expect. But, seemingly, ONDA is definatelly brand to be avoided. Cheers
