Coolby’s 13.5 inch mobile notebook “Coolby EvoBook” is introduced here. This is the second time to introduce Coolby’s products on Wintab, but I haven’t had a chance to touch the actual product yet, so I have to admit that I’m still not sure about it. However, there are already a few products available on Banggood, and the EvoBook has some good specs.
The OS is Windows 10 Pro, with no information on upgrading to Windows 11, and the CPU is a 10th generation Core i5-1035G4 (one of the previous generations). There are several Core i5 models in this generation, but the one in the EvoBook has an Intel Iris Plus GPU, so it has a good graphics performance.
The RAM is 16GB and the storage is 512GB, which is enough for a Core i5 mobile notebook. The 16GB of RAM is especially reassuring when you consider that you’ll be using it for several years to come. We’ve also heard that the storage has an M.2 slot on the bottom, but we’re not sure if this slot is empty or if it contains the standard 512GB SSD.
The display is a 13.5-inch IPS LCD with a higher resolution of 2,256 x 1,504 and a slightly longer aspect ratio of 3:2, the same size and resolution as the Microsoft Surface Laptop series.
We’ll show you some images of the chassis later, but first, let’s compare the size with the Surface Laptop 4 (13.5″), which has the same display size.
The Surface Laptop 4 is noticeably smaller than the Surface Laptop 4 by 11 mm in width. In terms of depth (short side) and thickness, there’s not much difference. The EvoBook is just over 100 grams heavier.
This is the front view. In the case of Chinese products, there is a case that the product image is embellished (meaning that the image is processed to make the chassis look beautiful), and if this image is not embellished, we can say that it is a very stylish product with narrow bezel, but the truth is not clear.
For reference, here’s a picture of the Surface Laptop 4 that we compared the size of above. Actually, the bezel width of Surface Laptop is quite wide, because the design of the case has not changed much since the first model. So it’s “possible” that there’s an 11mm difference in width between the EvoBook and the Surface Laptop, and the EvoBook’s images may be “slightly exaggerated, but we can trust that it has narrow bezels”.
This is the top panel, which is a simple “metal” enclosure with the Coolby logo in the middle of the top panel. You can also see in this image that this product has a “lift-up hinge structure” (when the hinge opens, the back of the top panel dives into the bottom to create a proper angle for the keyboard surface).
The keyboard. The keyboard is in English and has a backlight. There’s also a large touchpad with a built-in fingerprint sensor. From this image, it looks pretty easy to use.
Here’s a look at the sides and the layout of the input and output ports: the USB Type-A ports are split between the left and right sides, so it’s easy to connect your peripherals. The USB Type-C port on this product supports USB PD 2.0 for fast charging.
