The i-Life ZedAir is an entry-level laptop great for students, personal office and home use. It has genuine Windows 10, delivers good battery life, smooth performance and sold build quality at an affordable price without making too many major omissions. It comes with 32GB internal memory which you can supplement with a 500GB or 1TB External HDD to carry along all your favorite documents, music and movies. The laptop weighs just 1.36kg. The design makes it easy to carry around and the compact charger (it’s like a phone charger) adds to the overall portability.
On the left is the charger port, a USB port and a mini HDMI out port while the right side gets another USB port, microSD slot and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The keyboard is chiclet style and we found it to be comfortable for typing. The ZedAir’s trackpad is black in colour and has a matte finish adding to overall beauty of the laptop.
The display is one of the highlights of this laptop, it comes with a medium size 12.5-inch screen and has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with brilliant visuals.
The Zed Air has a quad core Intel Atm x5 processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM and 32GB flash storage. There is also a dedicated microSD slot for storage expansion. The big advantage of the flash storage is that the laptop boots up and runs smooth as long as you stick to less advanced usage.
With a brightness level of 60% and normal use (web + documents), you regularly get 6 hours of battery life on a full charge. Some other things you will like include the surprisingly loud dual speakers, dual microphones, LED indicators on the front and the sturdy hinge design.
