YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

A convertible Notebook for just over $250 sounds at first too good to be true.

However, this is exactly what the Chinese manufacturer YEPO promises with its YEPO 737A in our review. This Notebook is available on various Asian platforms for about $260 and looks damn good at first glance!

YEPO 737A Notebook 6GB RAM

Price: $239.99 or $209.99(64GB) with coupon: Bfriday076 & GBTPC09

YEPO 737A Notebook 6GB RAM

Price: $239.99 or $209.99(64GB) with coupon: Bfriday076 & GBTPC09

13.3 inch with 1920 x 1080 Pixels, RAM: 6GB, ROM: 128GB, Battery: 8000mAh, Windows 10, Intel Celeron N3450 Quad Core 1.1GHz, up to 2.5GHz

Maybe it looks a bit too good, as is often the case with Chinese products.

I could not resist here and ordered the YEPO 737A for a full test.

Can the cheap Ultrabook from YEPO convince in the test?

YEPO 737A: Packaging

The YEPO 737A in our test is available in many different versions. Starting with 64GB of memory + Intel Celeron N3450 for about $220 and with 128GB of memory for around $260.

I have the bigger version of this test. So the Intel Celeron N3450 with 6GB RAM and 128GB eMMC memory.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

I ordered this time again at Gerbest. These offer the European Express shipping, which is duty-free! Otherwise, it would be quite complicated and expensive to order such a high-priced product from Asia.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

So I can only recommend to order at Gearbest and to choose the European express at the checkout so there are no additional customs fees and labor.

I also recommend ordering a US to EU power adapter. Unfortunately, the notebook is only supplied with a US power adapter, but you can easily operate it with Adapter.

YEPO 737A: Design and Appearance

At first glance, the YEPO 737A in our analisis surprises. First, the eye-catching color immediately catches your eye, and second, the feel is surprisingly good.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

In terms of optics, YEPO has not made any experiments. The top of the notebook is completely made of aluminum and has only a small YEPO logo. Something similar in the interior, a lot of aluminum and an “island keyboard” with a sufficiently large Trackpad.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The notebook feels neither rickety nor cheap.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The thickness is pleasingly low and is quite comparable to a MacBook Pro.

YEPO has left nothing behind in the connections and offers decent I/Os. On the left side, we find the charging port, a USB 3.0 port, and an HDMI port.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

On the right side are a USB 3.0 port, the headphone output, and a microSD card slot.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Of course, there is also a connection for the included power supply, which unfortunately has a very short cable.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Somewhat unusual for notebooks is the side-mounted power switch and the side volume rocker.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The enclosed European charger is only moderately good. It is a 12V 2A power supply with a rather short cable, but the power supply is also quite compact.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Maybe it is even a bit too robust because the one-handed opening of the VOYO VBook is unthinkable.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

By the way, the YEPO notebook in the test does not have a fan! The notebook is passively cooled and thus completely silent.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

I was a little surprised when turning the laptop.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

This has on the bottom of an easy to reach m.2 slot for an SSD. So yes it would be possible to extend the rather small sized memory very easily.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Note, this slot seems to take only short SATA m.2 SSDs, like these, but I did not test it due to the lack of a suitable SSD.

YEPO 737A: Display

The YEPO 737A in our review has a 13.3 inch Full HD display. This one even seems to be an IPS panel in terms of angle of view.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

This is unfortunately relatively strong and not all the brightest but perfectly adequate for indoor use.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

In terms of colors and contrasts, this even depends on my Acer Aspire V15 (which admittedly has a poor display).

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

In short, the display is really not bad for the price of YEPO 737A a $250 device, there is of course still air up, just for outdoor use but it could have come in this price range, much worse.

YEPO 737A: Hardware and Performance

My version is the YEPO 737A is equipped with the Intel Celeron N3450. Accordingly, the notebook is not a racing machine.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

You can feel this in everyday life, in which you often have to accept small waiting times. Especially at first counts with a somewhat halting experience. Windows first loads various software updates in the background which causes 20-40% CPU load.

If only one application is working, the notebook will perform well. Only when something works in the background in addition to the active application, you realize how the YEPO 737A gets problems and slows down.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The YEPO 737A 13.3 includes an Intel Celeron N3450 processor in combination with 6GB RAM. When ordering, pay a little attention to your exact configuration, as usual, there are the Netbook in different configurations.

The version tested here, however, is the cheapest version. Do not let the Intel “Celeron” processor put you off too much. I know Intel Celeron does not necessarily mean “top performance”, but the quad-core used here is neat.

Geekbench 4

Although the N3450 is not a performance monster, this provides well over 50% more power than, for example, an Intel Atom x5 Z8300. But is about 40% behind a Core m3-6Y30.

Youtube

I did not even expect, but this laptop without any problems plays in the 4k video. Indeed, the performance of the laptop is good, so 6GB of RAM and a good processor makes itself felt.

Of course, gaming is only possible to a very limited extent on the YEPO 737A 13.3 in our analisis. Minecraft runs without mods, even older games like CSS or classics like Age of Empires. But even modern ESport titles like CS Go are very marginal at minimum resolution.

AIDA64

But in everyday life, the YEPO 737A looks great. However, this is also due to the generously sized RAM. 6GB of RAM is more than enough to have some tabs in Google Chrome open while listening to a Word document for editing and music via Spotify.

3DMark

In such applications, the YEPO is also quite responsive and speedy. The fast onboard WLAN, which even supports the 5 GHz band and the AC standard, certainly also contributes to this.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017 Speed Test

Slightly less fast is the built-in memory. This comes to reading around 150MB/s and writing at 50MB/s. Sounds not very impressive, it is not, but practically the memory is sufficiently fast.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

From pressing the power button to the desktop (cold boot), the YEPO 737A needs a good 25 seconds. Even in everyday life, I could not recognize stuttering, which could be attributed to the SSD.

YEPO 737A: Keyboard and Trackpad

Let’s start with the keyboard. This has a decent size and a nice matte texture on the laptop. The mouse buttons are embedded below the trackpad and can be activated by pressing.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Important the YEPO 737A has a QWERTY keyboard.

The click feeling of the keys is pleasingly good and crisp! Tracking the trackpad is good too, if not very good! Although this has some problems when you navigate with two hands or too many fingers on this, in practice, the pad is well used.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The normal movements and also clicks are detected clean!

What about the keyboard? This is very interesting with the YEPO 737A! The manufacturer relies on relatively “small” buttons which have a relatively high distance from each other and are quite high.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

But the keys offer a very low-pressure point, very unusual when one comes from an Apple MacBook.

Unfamiliar but not bad! The keys feel crisp and the typing goes well after a short familiarization of the hand. Due to the aluminum housing, the keyboard cannot be pressed at all but is pleasantly taut.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The whole course requires some getting used to, but is certainly feasible. If you get along with the layout, great! Because the keyboard is good!

So, if you can type as far as possible blind, that’s no problem at all. Otherwise, this may be a bit strange.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Otherwise, the keyboard is okay. The pressure point of the buttons is useful, although somewhat firm and flat but still significantly better than most “type covers”.

The same applies to the trackpad. This works as far as useful but is also no enjoyment to use.

YEPO 737A: Software

YEPO 737A relies on Windows 10 64-bit.

This is software moderately clean, there is nothing preinstalled which would not be there for a new installation of Windows 10.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Unusually, a user account is already stored on the VBook and thus, of course, the setup process is skipped.

The YEPO 737A 13.3 uses stink-normal Windows 10, but only with English / Chinese language. The English version is 100% English and not the same English-Chinese mix as other notebooks.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

I have left this, however, because the Windows 10 what is used here, is really nice clean. On the one hand, I mean that this is virus-free (you do not know Chinese products) and on the other hand there is no preinstalled software except the necessary drivers.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Exemplary YEPO! Windows was also fully enabled and, unlike other Asia tablets, not already set up. At the first start, I expected the completely normal Windows 10 setup screen.

Only the free memory is good with 115GB.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

I assume that the used Windows 10 is the “China Version”. This is the normal Windows 10, which, however, can only be activated in China and is cheaper for the manufacturer.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

This is to combat illegal Windows versions in China. Gearbest or YEPO has probably switched on and activated the device so that it can be used in Europe so that it can be used throughout the world.

If you do not trust history, just reset the VBook completely under Settings -> Update and Security -> Restore.

After a while, you will then land on the normal Windows 10 Welcome page, where you can set up the notebook fresh.

The Activation remains.

YEPO 737A: Sound

The speakers in the YEPO are rather the worse ones. For one, these are attached to the bottom of the notebook, on the other they sound very thin.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

The sound goes here and there once a Youtube video, but much more is not synonymous.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Most smartphones even have better speakers.

YEPO 737A: Battery

According to the manufacturer, the YEPO 737A contains an 8000mAh battery, which certainly sounds very impressive at first.

In my practice test, on 100% recharge and surfing the internet with Google Chrome until the battery is empty, the YEPO held up pretty much 6 hours at half the display brightness, which is not bad.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

With another web browser or only with video certainly, 2 more hours are possible.

A big disadvantage, however, is the charging of the notebook. Enclosed is a 12V 2A charger with US plug.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

That’s not a major problem in itself, especially since Gearbest has also included an adapter for me.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

However, the cable with about 120cm is quite short and the plug tends to fall through the adapter from the socket.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

This could be very annoying for students in mobile use. However, this is a normal hollow plug (I suspect it is a 4.0 mm / 1.7 mm, but I am not 100% sure), so it should be possible to find suitable substitute Amazon.

YEPO 737A: Conclusions and Reviews

The YEPO 737A in our review is a remarkably usable convertible Notebook. For the price of $260, you get an Intel Celeron N3450, 6GB RAM, and 128GB memory.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

Among other things, I really mean the computing power with performance. The Intel N3450 in combination with 6GB RAM is already strong! Here you can feel in everyday life quite a big leap in performance compared to the Intel Atom notebooks. The 6GB RAM is also ideal for surfing the web with many open tabs.

Of course, there is still a lot of room for improvement in terms of computing power, but for normal everyday life, what is offered here is often enough to travel completely.

YEPO 737A Review: Speedy Notebook 13.3 inch with 6GB of RAM for low Price 2017

In addition to the performance, the feel and processing is a big plus. The YEPO is really solid and ruggedly built. Also, the notebook is not overly heavy or thick, but this is also no featherweight.

Add to that the very neat input devices. The keyboard is good, so does the trackpad. What is also good, if not excellent, is the display.

In short, with the YEPO 737A 13.3 for less than $260, you get a relatively fast laptop with a full 6GB of RAM, a great display, a solid battery life and a processing that makes the various Dell, HP, Lenovo plastic bombers blush with envy.

In short, if you are a little experimental and maybe looking for a second notebook, which is very portable, then the YEPO 737A could be just the thing for you.
