Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 might be a terrific machine in shortening the functionality gap between laptops and tablets, but for the price tag of $899, it is definitely a product that only the affluent crowd of world will be able to afford. This is the reason why affordable alternatives are being manufactured, and on this occasion, Teclast X16 is the ideal Windows 10 powered tablet that will also go easy on your budget.
Teclast X16 comes with a pre-order price of $424.59. Coming to the specifications of the Surface clone, Teclast X16 might not be fitted with Intel’s Skylake processors, but rather the company’s Cherry Trail Atom chipset, X7 Z8700. For all those who have the impressive that Intel Atom chipsets are unable to deliver sufficient performance, they will be highly mistaken with that impression.
he Teclast tablet is a dual OS machine: it ships with both Windows 10 and Android 5.1 software pre-installed. You can switch from one operating system to the other by rebooting.
The tablet supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, has a microSD card slot for up to 64GB of removable storage, and sports a 5MP rear camer and a 2MP front camera.
It also has a USB 3.0 port, a micro USB port, a micro HDMI port, and a headset jack. There’s a docking connector for a keyboard, but the keyboard is sold separately. Teclast will also offer an optional pen, but it’s not clear if the tablet uses an active digitizer or if it will be a passive stylus.
There is a quad-core processor present inside the Surface clone running at a speed of 1.6GHz, and while executing demanding tasks, the clock speed will increase to 2.4GHz. In addition, there is 8GB of RAM present, with is far more than what you get when you head out to purchase affordable notebooks. The screen size is an 11.6 FHD display, and it is running Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system. For all those who are curious on how they can order the tablet, Teclast X16 is available for pre-order at an online retailer called Geek Buying.
Similar to Ali Express, you can order via a credit or debit card (PayPal option is available, but it will be of no use to us) and proceed to click on the ‘Checkout’ option. According to the website, it can take between 2-7 days to ship the product.
As a Surface clone, Teclast X16 will obviously not be able to provide you with the same level of performance as a Surface Pro 4 thanks to its inferior processor, but when you want to fulfill your requirements of completing your office related tasks as well as fulfilling your entertainment requirements, the 11.6 inch tablet is an ideal alternative that you can get for yourself.
