A design that is not the best

KUU A8S PRO

KUU A8S PRO has six connection options

It is normal for a product that seeks not to raise its final costs to leave design details in the background. Here we offer a construction in plastic materials that looks quite good on its external face but unfortunately It doesn’t stand out too much inside, especially when you notice its rather thick bezels around the screen.

In addition, the included keyboard does have a full size that also offers an island of number keys for an even more comfortable writing experience. Total, the official dimensions of KUU A8S PRO remain at 37.5 x 24.5 x 2.2 cm, while its weight of 1.7 kilograms It is within the market standards for equipment with a 15.6-inch panel.

If what interests you are your present connections there are a total of two USB-A 3.0 ports, plus a mini HDMI video output to bring the image to televisions and external monitors in Full HD quality, Ethernet input, SD card slot and classic 3.5mm headphone / microphone combo complete your available options.

A kit for basic activities

KUU A8S PRO

KUU A8S PRO has a classic screen size and resolution

KUU A8S PRO can be a very useful model for those who are used to consuming video content regularly, since its 15.6-inch display responds to a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 Hz, that is to say, normal for most mid-range laptops currently in stores.

Inside, an Intel Celeron J4125 processor (composed of four cores clocked at 2.0 GHz, Turbo clocked at 2.7 GHz, 4MB L3 Cache) it will not be enough if the use of more demanding software is sought, although its 8 GB of DDR4 RAM they are more than enough to maintain a fluidity when multitasking. There is also a Intel HD Graphics 600 graphics, 256 GB internal space in SSD format to ensure fast OS startup and file read / write speeds as expected.

Finally, the laptop arrives from the factory with Windows 10 Home operating system, 5000 mAh battery that promises around eight hours of autonomy on a single charge, built-in speaker with support for Dolby Audio Premium technology and an HD-quality webcam for basic video communications.

Comparison with KUU A8S

KUU A8S PRO

KUU A8S PRO only has changes in its components

Previously we were able to perform the analysis of the original model called KUU A8S and logically most of the features in both match perfectly, in addition to a design that does not change in its general aesthetics in silver color, dimensions and total weight, or specifications for your screen.

Thus, the main difference is that KUU A8S may offer lower performance if you choose the version with 6GB RAM or have less internal storage space available with 128 GB (there is also an option with 8 GB + 256 GB for sale).

On the other hand, the original version was left with an Intel Celeron J3455 processor, which means a 7th generation model (Apollo Lake) and two generations behind the CPU present in the Pro version. Its performance is also based on four cores but at a speed of 1.5 GHz with maximum increase of up to 2.3 GHz.
