The laptop manufacturing industry is congested and the competition amongst manufacturers is making it easier for us to purchase a good laptop for cheap. Technically, all the big smartphone manufacturers in the world including Chinese brand has a laptop department but you can be sure that their cheapest product would not sell for less than $600. However, thank goodness that we have other smaller brands like DERE which can give us quality notebooks for about $400. Today, we spotted the DERE R9 Pro Notebook sitting on Gearbest for only $389.92. This is a very good price and it is worth consideration. However, let us take a look at the details of this notebook.
The DERE R9 Pro Notebook is a 15.6-inch laptop which has a dimension of 33.10 x 23.50 x 1.70 cm and weighs only 1.4kg which makes it lighter than most of its peers. With this dimension, the DERE R9 Pro will perfectly fit into an average size backpack and it can be seamlessly carried if need be. Looking at the design of this laptop, the company adopted a minimalist design structure which gives it a premium appearance. Its thin bezels are comparable with that on high-end notebooks and this is one of the most attractive features on this device.
A couple of features makes the 15.6-inch IPS LCD display of the DERE R9 Pro to stand out. Apart from the thin bezels, the display is scratch-resistant glass with a 1920×1080 FHD resolution. This display feature puts the screen on a par with more expensive notebooks. The display ratio is the conventional 16:9 but you got more screen space due to the thinner bezels. The display has an amazing color-calibration and the color accuracy is almost perfect. It has great viewing angles and well-calibrated contrast which makes the DERE R9 PRO a great choice for photo & some basic video editing.
Under the hood, the DERE R9 PRO is powered by an Intel Apollo Lake J3455 Quad-Core clocked at 1.5GHz up to 2.3GHz. For a $300 notebook, I think no buyer who has a fair knowledge of processors and their prices will expect more. However, this chip is optimized for ultrabooks with Ultra-low-voltage algorithm and Quad Core processing which tends to provide maximum high-efficiency power. With this, the overall user experience is great. The processor is supported by 6GB LPDDR3 RAM which is enough for high-bandwidth multitasking to run your games, photo, and video-editing applications. It also has a 64GB internal storage which is quite small considering that smartphones now readily get up to 128GB but this storage can be expanded up to 128GB via SD card. Nevertheless, for $300, this is quite good. For graphics, the DERE R9 PRO comes with an Intel HD Graphics 500 GPU which is sufficient for high image quality for basic Internet use, photo editing, and mid-end gaming. However, thie is not suitable for high-end gaming.
