Design and display
The One Netbook 4S is not just any Netbook that we can find on the market, it enters a niche where there is little competition, so it has its charm. And with that niche we mean that of the 10-inch convertible PCswhere it is emerging as a solid contender.
Needless to say, it is extremely compact and lightweight. To be specific, measures 227mm x 157.3mm x 11-17mm and it doesn’t even weigh a kilogram (770 grams).
As we already said, it is a convertible PC, and this means that we can use it as a tablet, a conventional laptop and even in store mode thanks to its 360° degree hinge. Regarding the development and quality of the device, it exhibits an aluminum chassis with a matte black finish.
This laptop has a backlit keyboard which suffers from the same malady that afflicts all Netbooks, being too small for some people. It is also worth noting that the power button has a fingerprint reader for biometric recognition.
In another vein, its small size has not stopped the manufacturer from providing the device with a adjustable speed fan to keep temperatures under control.
Then there is the issue of the screen, which is a excellent 10.1-inch LTPS panel with 16.10 aspect ratio and 2.5K resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. In addition to providing a super sharp image with full coverage of the sRGB color space, it is tactile and takes advantage of 90% of the surface where it is installed, not to mention that it supports digital pens with 2048 levels of pressure, which comes from pearl to artists
However, the latter comes with a price, and that is that no space left for a webcam.
Performance and features
The One Netbook 4S is equipped with a Intel Core i3-1210U processor with 6 cores and 8 threads that works up to a frequency of 4.4Ghz, and is backed by integrated Intel iRis Xe graphics and by 16GB of LPRDDR5 RAMto which we must add 512GB of Nvme PCIe storage.
In general terms, it is a correct piece of equipment for day-to-day programs and applications, being recommended for teleworking and study, as well as for consuming multimedia content. It can also move around some old games and indie titles with ease, but it’s obviously not a gaming laptop.
The equipment is feeding by a 10,000mAh battery that promises up to 8 hours of video playback local, but the truth of the matter is that it is closer to 6 hours than the stipulated figure.
In terms of software it comes with Windows 11 (licensed) as an operating system and its form factor is not an impediment to installing any other operating system.
In terms of interfaces, the One Netbook 4S has a USB-C 4.0 port compatible with external GPUs, video output and 45W fast charging. There are another couple of USB-C ports present, but they are version 3.2 and 3.0.
Despite its small size, the manufacturer has not forgotten to include a 3.5mm audio jack for headphones/speakers, as well as equipping it with a memory card slot. At the wireless level it consists of Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0the usual.
One Netbook 4S vs. One Netbook 4
The One Netbook 4S at first glance is the same Netbook 4, but with an Intel Alder Lake-U series processor instead of the Tiger Lake ones. In this sensethe original model makes use of the Intel Core i5-1130G7 CPUwhile the new model settles for an i3-1210U, so we can expect a similar level of performance on the CPU side alongside better power efficiency, but at the trade-off for lower GPU performance.
In addition, Netbook 4S is only available with 16GB+512GB, while with the standard model we could find configurations with 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage. It should also be noted that the 4S comes with Windows 11 out of the box instead of Windows 10.
With all that saidthe One Netbook 4S ends up shaping up as the more affordable option of the two by a substantial margin, and that in exchange for very small sacrifices, while maintaining the design and screen that make the original model special.
Be that as it may, both are good options and choosing between one and the other is at the discretion of the buyer and his budget.
