Teclast F6 Pro Laptop: 13.3 inch, 360° foldable touchscreen for $499.99

The Teclast F6 Pro, with its 360° foldable design, is strongly reminiscent of the Lenovo Yoga series. This series has made such a screen well known everywhere, but can the Chinese manufacturer’s alternative also keep up in terms of hardware?

Hardware

The Teclast F6 has solid hardware that is comparable to the 2017 version of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 12.5″. Only the memory of 8 GB is twice as large as that of the Xiaomi notebook. The m3-7y30 belongs to Intel’s 7th generation of notebook processors, which has already been replaced by the 8th generation. However, m3-7y30 processors are still frequently installed in mid-range notebooks and can also be found “around the corner” in some devices in the electronics market.

I myself have been using the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air in daily use for about 1.5 years. Working and surfing is no problem with the hardware, so it should be the same with the Teclast F6. However, the latest games are not included, if you are looking for a notebook with which you can also play games, you might want to have a look at the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro.

Apart from the solid computing power, the Teclast F6 Pro is especially interesting for me with its tablet properties. Like the Lenovo Yoga series, the laptop in the aluminium case can be folded 360°. However, we can’t (yet) say how the 13.3-inch Full HD touchscreen will perform in practice.

Connection options

The Teclast F6 Pro features two USB-A 3.0 interfaces, a USB-C 3.1 interface, a microSD slot, a jack input, a micro-HDMI port, and a DC charging connector.

Similar to the CHUWI LapBook Air, a separate flap for the built-in SSD is mounted on the underside of the hybrid notebook. Unfortunately, this is not an expansion slot, but the only slot available. This way the SSD memory can at least be easily changed or enlarged. Otherwise, the option to expand the memory capacity of the notebook via microSD card remains.

Evaluation

In the data sheet, the Teclast F6 Pro Hybrid notebook is a clever combination of laptop and tablet paired with Windows 10, and the manufacturer relies on solid mid-range hardware, which I like because many Chinese manufacturers use cheap or outdated hardware. For components used, handling Microsoft Office, streaming HD content and playing smaller or older games should not be a problem. It remains to be seen how the screen fares and whether precise operation is possible with the touch screen.

So far we have had good experience with Teclast when it comes to processing, but our previous products were without an aluminium case. If everything fits, this could be a real alternative to the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air, with touch screen!
