Display

The display is surprisingly sharp, with resolution 14-inch FullHD. It offers relatively accurate colors on a matte screen without being too washed out. The brightness could have been raised a notch for better viewing. In the upper part the web cam by only 0.3MP is installed. We are used to poor quality web cam resolutions on Chinese notebooks, but 0.3MP perhaps it is too little.

Keyboard

The keyboard of the Xbook And backlit with 2 intensity modes. Upon pressing typing the keys you feel the quality too plasticky. But luckily the pad And large and fast. Perhaps this is the part you least like but remember the particularly affordable price.

The touchpad it is much wider than it is taller, which seemed rather odd at first but turned out to be a nice surprise. Left and right clicks work fine despite the absence of physical buttons. However, the palm rest areas are small. The Keyboard layout it is international but in the packaging stickers for Italian are included.

YOU

Windows 10 Pro with original license and language in Italian. It works very well on MONTH Xbook with the Windows home operating system and booting Adobe Photosho, Office e Firefox there is no slowdown whatsoever. For very complex Video editing tasks it is better to avoid because the CPU could give up.

Battery

The battery from 5000mAh da 24 W (12 V, 2 A) it has an average autonomy of approx 5-6 hours based on usage. On average with all other Chinese notebooks.

Conclusion

The Kuu Xbook ultrabook has a nice revamped design with respectable specs. It has nothing less than other Chinese notebooks of the same range. Too bad for the quality of the keyboard keys, but the pad is very large and allows fluid use. The MONTH K2 it has a superior quality and perhaps it should be taken as a reference for the next KUU models.
