Notebookcheck
22 April 2014

The keyboard is very good and the connectivity very suitable for practical applications. The price is attractive, too. It is almost cheap compared to works...
  • Cons: upgradeability of mass storage, M.2 expansion cards with max. 42 mm can be used, interface layout on the left, buttons of the Clickpad, throttling of CPU performance in the stress test and on battery mode, dedicated touchpad / TrackPoint buttons, a preciser color sensor and constant CPU performance.

eteknix.com
5 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The OCUK Ultra Book left me with mixed feelings for the first day or so, at least when I was using it at home. I found the resolution was a little too low for my liking and that I’ve become accustomed to a 1920 x 1080 minimum, but also found that typing on the keyboard resulted in too many typos and...
