quick spec: Intel Core i7-1065G7, 16GB RAM, 512 PCIe SSD, 14″ FHD 100% sRGB, 720p webcam, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, quad speaker, fingerprint sensor, 2x USB-C, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0 , Windows 10 Home x64 | Infinix is quite serious about entering the notebook market after being quite successful with their cellphones. Lifting the price and good features that are so competitive in their class.
The most visible advantage of the Infinix INBook X1 Pro is in the difference in features at an affordable price. In the 10 million notebook class, it’s still pretty rare to find a notebook with an Intel Core i7-1065G7 class processor whose capabilities are roughly the same as the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U.
The screen is also very attractive, has an IPS panel, 14-inch diagonal, Full HD resolution, and 100% sRGB. Wow, this could be an affordable alternative for notebooks for graphic design, updating videos or photos – and content creators in general.
It’s still quite rare for 10 million notebooks to have a 100% sRGB or 72% NTSC color gamut, the same thing that the INBook X1 Pro is selling.
Varian Infinix INBook X1
Infinix launches 3 types of INBoox X1 notebooks with major differences in the processor used. Meanwhile, the design and favorite features are slightly different. They are:
- Infinix INBook X1 Intel Core i3-1005G1
- Infinix INBook X1 Intel Core i5-1035G1 dan
- Infinix INBook X1 Pro dengan Intel Core i7-1065G7.
As for the colors, each type is available in 4 colors, Noble Red, Elves Green, Luxurious Black and Starfall Grey. On its official website, Infinix said that these 4 colors were inspired by the panoramic view of the Trysil night sky on the Norwegian coast.
Design and Built Quality
It seems that Infinix is targeting the younger group of users by pointing out some bold and fresh colors. Especially in the color Noble Red – the red is quite dark so it looks sexy and catchy. The Elves Green color also has a calm and deep green.
Meanwhile, the Elegant Black and Starfall Gray colors can be a good alternative for those of you who are easily amused by other parties while working or relaxing to work in public places like this kind of cafe.
Infinix uses Premium Anodized Aluminum material throughout their INBook X1 series, and of course in this Pro version. Just like the i3-1005G1 which costs 6 million to use… – right…!
The metal material used in this case has succeeded in making it look like a cheap notebook.
Despite the low price, the build quality is quite surprising – better than the average notebook in its class. The body surface is soft with several angles that make the finishing bold and neat. It’s hard to get a problem with this body. Aluminum huh….
Infinix explained that only the bezel side of the monitor did not use metal material.
In finishing the rear casing of the monitor, Infinix distributes the texture into two other sides. The top side has a “brushed” texture – the leftover groove-system variety is brushed off like that. While the bottom side has a “sandblasted” texture – a bit rough like a smooth sandpaper surface. You can get the Infinix symbol on the middle right side of the back case.
This Infinix INBook X1 Pro variant has dimensions that are quite light and thin. The longest side is 32.3 cm, the width is 21.9 cm, and the thickness is 1.63 cm. It’s not as thin as an ultrabook, but it manages to look thin because of its good body side design.
It weighs only 1.47 kg, the standard weight for a 14-inch notebook output today. With this weight, it’s still pretty easy to take it to school, university, office, or work with you while relaxing at the cafe.
Coupled with a 65W charger adapter type USB Type C connector which weighs 253 grams, so you can carry a total weight of 1.72 kg. Still light right? The happy thing is that the charging cable can be removed from the charger, so it can be easier to store in the bag.
What about his abilities?
The Infinix INBook X1 Pro laptop is equipped with a processor from Intel’s tenth generation – Intel Core i7-1065G7, a quad-core (8 threads) Ice Lake CPU that works at a standard speed of 1.3GHz and TurboBoost up to 3.9GHz. This processor is integrated with the iGPU in the form of Belah Plus G7.
For detailed news, you can also read Intel Core i7-1065G7 – Sturdy 10th Gen Intel Processor With AI Deep Learning.
Although the Core i7-1065G7 is not the latest generation of Intel processors, its capabilities can still be considered. Great for office and home tasks – such as updating documents in Microsoft Office, searching, and streaming – so running a bit heavy on video and photo editing, running Illustrator or Corel Draw, or wanting to use it as a streamer is still possible for once.
Of course, the good capacity of the INBook X1 Pro notebook is because it supports LPDDR4x RAM, which has 16GB of space and a 512GB PCIe 3.0 SSD that it carries. Computing work that requires heavy multitasking can still run smoothly and with less lag.
How about when to play games?
The iGPU Split Plus G7 is not a high-end GPU. But even though the graphics capacity can not be underestimated. This Core i7-1065G7 built-in iGPU brings the highest type with 64 EUs at a speed of 300 – 1100 MHz.
Its performance is about a second time faster than Intel UHD Graphics 620 but also better than AMD Vega 10 from the AMD Ryzen line, yes, it’s similar to the capacity of the GeForce MX150
Obviously the performance is still below the discrete GPU which is designed to serve heavy graphics purposes. But in fact it is still sturdy enough to play some light games smoothly. Meanwhile, if you want to play some heavy games, users can play on low chart settings.
There are many game titles that you can play smoothly on this Infinix INBook X1 Pro.
And don’t worry too much about the heat it causes. Infinix equips this cheap 10 million i7 notebook with an Ice Storm 1.0 cooling system that uses military grade airflow, so the notebook doesn’t overheat and is always quiet without being too crowded when playing games or being full load.
100% sRGB screen?
In the 10 million price class, the average notebook monitor on the market still has a 45% sRGB color gamut. Gaming notebooks for 15 to 20 million are also the same. Just watch the HP Victus 16 E0089AX monitor which is priced at 18 million. (but the refresh rate is 144Hz!). Not many provide a color scope as wide as this Infinix INBook X1 Pro monitor.
This Infinix INBook X1 Pro screen has a 14-inch monitor range, the right size for the average user. Not as big as 15.6 inches and above, but also not too small like 11.6 inch monitors. This 14-inch monitor is very comfortable to use for various purposes, such as searching, updating documents in Word, producing data in Excel, making presentations in PowerPoint, or editing photos in Photoshop or videos in Premiere.
The screen has a size of 14 inches, a type of IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD LED backlight panel, full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution with optimal information up to 300 nits which can once provide a happy experience, good for working or enjoying multimedia content.
The 100% sRGB color gamut ensures that whatever is displayed on the monitor is in accordance with the design industry standards. This is very helpful for those of you whose job requires the best color accuracy to ensure the colors of your creations on the notebook monitor are always precise and do not experience color shifting when seen in other features.
The monitor design is beautiful!
When viewed from the front, the appearance of the Infinix INBook X1 monitor is quite thin on the left-top, and right. The left and right bezels are only approximately 4.13 mm. While the top bezel is a little thick. Infinix positions the 720p HD webcam in the center of this top bezel. You can get 2 microphone arrays on the right and left of the webcam.
In addition, this monitor is also given an anti-glare structure that helps reduce light reflections that can make eyes tired quickly. And to provide the best experience, this monitor can also be opened up to a 180-degree plate.
To make it easier for the user to open the monitor, Infinix positioned the elongated bump next to the webcam. Small details that are often overlooked in today’s notebook designs.
Are the keyboard and touchpad comfortable to use?
The Infinix Inbook X1 Pro’s keyboard layout is really neat. The distance between the buttons match, not too close or too tenuous. The buttons themselves feel soft, the travel distance is not deep, and it’s light when pushed, although yes, it still feels plastic.
Feel tapping feels pretty good, though chances are some people can feel a little disturbed by his pretty loud voice. Not a big problem sich…, it just feels like a mechanical keyboard, wkwkwk….
Don’t be sad first, after a while, you can feel comfortable. And so that you can continue to work in poor lighting situations, there is a backlit with 2 levels of information on the keyboard.
This Infinix INBook X1 Pro laptop has a touchpad that is quite large. Windows Precision Driver support allows users to navigate comfortably and quickly. The upper surface is soft and sensitive, therefore the fingertips can move quickly.
It’s a shame the place is more center to body than center to spacebar – not really my favorite status, because most of them are lighter than the touchpad accidentally presses the palm of the hand. After some time you can get used to it, sich….
Considering that this cheap Core i7 notebook is quite thin, it is quite surprising when Infinix pairs quite a number of ports and connectors on the left and right of the body. The only thing missing is the RJ-45 LAN connector, which is becoming increasingly difficult to find on today’s thin notebooks.
On the left side, you can get 1x DC-In, 1x HDMI 1.4, 1x USB Type C (for data transfer, charging, and display out), 1x USB Type C (for data transfer (USB 3.0) but not charging) , 1x Webcam Shut-Down Switch.
On the right side, you can find 1x Micro SD Card Reader, 1x Audio Combo Jack, 1x USB 2.0 Type A, 1x USB 3.0 Type A, and 1x Kensington Lock.
What deserves attention here is that in the sales package, the included charger uses a USB Type-C connector, not the usual power jack.
That is, the time is in the status of charging the battery, so the number of USB Type-C ports is only one. Although in fact, USB Type-C that can be used to charge this power has the use of being a display output. Such as participating chargers use DC-IN ports so this is even better.
At least there is still an HDMI 1.4 port to connect it with an additional monitor, so you don’t have to depend on that USB Type-C port.
Switch WebCam Manual
If on Lenovo’s launch notebook there is a dedicated webcam cover, then Infinix has a private switch to turn on and off the same webcam according to interest manually. You can get this switch on the left side of the notebook body.
The existence of a switch like this can provide more security for users, especially in situations where users are constantly connected to the internet.
This webcam switch works effectively. When turned off, Windows will also see this notebook is not equipped with a webcam.
You also get a fingerprint scanner which is placed on the right side of the touchpad for better security.
Charging up to 70% in an hour.
The installed battery capacity is 55 Whr, a type of Lithium Polymer. The staying power itself is pretty good. For standard use, Infinix dares to claim the battery can last up to 13 hours. To watch 1080p video, it can last up to approximately 10 hours.
Infinix includes a charger that has 65 Watts of power with PD3.0 which is quite fast to charge the battery. On a watch, the battery can contain up to 70% (from 5%). Furthermore, the charging speed can be reduced. at 2 hours, 94%. And brand-new within 2 hours 35 minutes, the battery can be fully charged.
This is natural, the battery charging speed will be reduced. Reducing this speed to lower the temperature, therefore in the long term, can make the battery last longer.
1.5 Watt Audio There is a Tweeter
Infinix said that this notebook carries 2 1.5 Watt base speakers which are placed on the bottom, near the front corner. Then there is another pair of tweeters with a power of 0.8 Watt which is installed facing up between the 2 hinges of the screen. To make the sound better, Infinix uses DTS audio processing.
As a result, the audio output sounds better than standard notebook audio in its price class. His tweeter helps bring out the small details nicely. For low-frequency tones are still less bouncing.
