If you’ve been around for a while, you’d have noticed the tonnes of Z8300-powered tablet and laptop launches that have graced the GizChina homepage. Trust me, we don’t even report half of them!
Fast forward, we’ve just learnt about a new laptop from China (yes, it does look like the MacBook) that doesn’t run on the Intel Z8300. This time around, we’ve a slight variation, and it features the Intel i7 6500U chip. But natural, it isn’t $150 cheap but still not too bad at around the $580 mark.
Known as the SongQi F6C, the laptop runs on Microsoft’s Windows 10 OS and features a 13.3-inch 1920 x 1080p display (sorry, no retina display here). Other specs include 4GB of RAM (a downer for sure), 128GB SSD, a 2 mega-pixel front camera, and a 6000mAh battery (slightly disappointing again).
Interestingly, it’s charged by a 5V adapter — you might just be able to charge the SongQi F6C with a typical phone power bank! Interested parties can get one for $580 right now, with shipping scheduled to commence 31st October.
It’ll be interesting if someone could turn it into a Hackintosh system.
