Micromax Canvas Laptab Review, cheap budget alternative to laptop

Micromax Canvas Laptab Review: A good enough alternative to the laptop? If you want a cheaper substitute for a laptop and have a very tight budget, the Micromax Canvas LapTab is something worth looking at.

Micromax Canvas Laptab priced at Rs 14,999, and is aimed at users who can not afford to buy a laptop and want a tablet that can really help out with the work. The student, the office-goer who does not have a big budget, is the target audience of the LapTab canvas.

Micromax Canvas Laptab Review, cheap budget alternative to laptop

The LapTab, which runs on Windows 8.1 can be used as a touch screen or tablet users can only connect to external keyboard and then turn it into a laptop.

Specifications of Micromax Canvas Laptab: 10.1-inch IPS capacitive touch screen (1280x800p) | Intel Atom fourth Gen (3735F, Quad Core, up to 1.83 GHz) | DDR3L 2GB RAM, 32GB of flash storage (expandable up to 64GB) | Windows 8.1 system Operating (free upgrade to Windows 10) | Camera - Front and rear 2MP | Built-In 1 USB, 1 micro port USB.2.0
Design, Form Factor: The canvas LapTab resembles a cheaper version of the surface and in my opinion the design does not really impress.

With a laptop, the advantage is that the screen does not fall if you decide it on his lap. With LapTab, you can never be comfortable while typing. The keyboard has a hinge in the center where you can dock the tablet and works well if you say while on a table, but if you are in a moving train, instability is not reassuring.

The tablet has a power button and the volume buttons on the left side. These are not exceptionally well designed. I had to push really hard button on the tab to get started in the first place and with the volume buttons was the same subject.

At the top of the tablet is a micro-SIM, micro-USB and a microSD slot. This tablet has only 32 GB of space, where users end up getting space around 16 GB of free space. (Once the Microsoft Office 2013 that comes free with the LapTab is activated). So yes, you need to add a microSD card if you want more space.

Besides this, the keyboard has a USB slot on the side of right, which is convenient if you want to connect your hard drive to this device.

Tablet vs keyboard: On a device as the key is performance and of course the keyboard. Since I have tiny fingers and hands, it should not have been so hard for me to adapt myself to write to the smaller keyboard, but really take time to get used to this.

I kept writing bad, at least in the first couple of days, but I managed to write this review in the LapTab, without hitting too often recoil. Once you get used to the LapTab, then it's a fairly comfortable keyboard, but the keys feel plasticky.

But, writing in a smaller keyboard is not as easy, simply because many of us are used to a larger keyboard. I suspect that people with giant hands would probably have more trouble with this than me.

When using the LapTab as a tablet will, Windows 8.1 is not the greatest tablet platform. When I was using the touch screen, I faced problems getting the screen to respond in the exact place where I put my fingers. For example open a new tab in Chrome on the touch screen tablet mode only it took several attempts.

Besides this, on a point of the touch screen stopped working completely and I was not sure if there was tinkered by mistake with some adjustments to turn it off. The installation of the touch screen and then came back as mysteriously as he had disappeared.

Speed ​​battery: For a Windows 8.1 device with only processor 2 GB of RAM and Intel Atom processor inside, the LapTab was attentive, although from the tablet took some time.
Microsoft Office 2013 is free with the device and activate once the software installed quite quickly and efficiently worked for me so. For users who would buy this device Office it is probably going to be the most important and frequent application that will access the LapTab and therefore it is essential that this works flawlessly. I was able to write, save documents in onedrive without facing any problem is a win in my opinion.

When the side of the laptop LapTab failed to impress me it was in the choice of USB port on the board. No matter how many times I disconnected or my external hard drive connected to the USB port, the unit would not show for the first couple of minutes.

When the unit did come and tried to open some folders, the scanner box gave the common Windows message: no answer. If students go to a device like this, they will want to plug into your hard drive, and if that does not happen smoothly, then there's really no point.
The LapTab also gave me trouble on the final day, when not started, despite showing LapTab the logo that appears on the screen. After a couple of attempts, it worked fine, but was not very reassuring to address a problem of this type with a review unit.

The battery is certainly the most disappointing feature of the laptap. It took over four hours to get the charging device 50 percent on the first day. The battery (full charge was more than eight hours, which is a lot) even last a day, even with moderate use that included navigation at most.
Battery life is crucial for a device that many would want to use on the go and this, in my opinion is a great failing.

Worth buying?

Windows 8.1 tablet/two-in-one is not really an entertainment device in the absence of applications on the platform of Windows 8. If you want a tablet for games, music, watching movies, this is not directed at you. If you want a cheaper substitute for a laptop and have a very tight budget, this is something worth looking at because to me delivered to the basics: the ability to perform work-related applications and do basic typing. For a more rugged use, I'm not convinced that is the right answer LapTab.
