Review of Venturer BravoWin 2-in-1 mini Windows netbook

Venturer 2 in 1 mini Windows notebook BravoWin 10KT review

Time for a brand new tech review! Today we’re looking at the Venturer BravoWin 10KT mini notebook, which converts between a stand alone tablet and a small laptop that runs Windows 10 as its OS. The reason I’ve been sent this one is that the price point is a very low £149.99 – is it value for money?

Let’s have a look at the specs and put this through its paces.

  • Intel Atom Core 4 processor
  • 2GB RAM, 32G memory
  • 8 hour battery life (didn’t quite last as long as the claim, but not bad)
  • 2MP dual cameras
  • Bluetooth & WiFi
  • Ports & slots for: headphones, USB, micro SD card, HDMI
  • 10.1 inch 1280x800px display
  • Office Mobile suite

A few notes now about ease of use. It’s easy enough to get up and running out of the box with a four hour charge, and it boots up smoothly and fairly quickly. It’s not too heavy and it’s easy to handle, although some people might find it a bit top heavy when using it as a mini laptop. The trackpad is okay especially considering the price, but somewhat skittish, although it might be possible to reconfigure that through the settings.

The magnetic clip is quite sturdy, but it’s also easy to attach and detach, making it simple to start using the device as a stand alone tablet. I found the tablet to be the most comfortable way to use the device, although the aspect ratio is a little unusual in that it’s relatively tall and skinny. It’s nicely responsive to touch, although the screen isn’t exactly what you’d call high resolution – it would be fine for watching a few YouTube videos on, but it might struggle with top notch cinematography. The speaker is adequate but on the tinny side, and for better audio you’d need headphones.

The build is sturdy rather than sleek, but it doesn’t have the flimsy feel of other similar products in this price bracket. I wouldn’t say the cameras are especially good, as most phones can do better, but it would be fine for everyday online chats and hangouts. It also wouldn’t be the best for editing video etc so it’s probably not one for the professional vloggers out there.

However, that’s clearly not the expected usage or audience. The Venturer BravoWin 10KT is ideal browsing the internet, and just right for sending emails and checking social media. The Office Mobile software would make it useful for doing homework, college reports, or a bit of extra work during a commute. That would make it most handy for schoolkids, general family use, something to keep yourself busy with on long journeys, or something Gran could use to Skype you on.

As I’m not familiar with Venturer as a brand, I wouldn’t be able to tell you what their customer and tech support is like, but if you have experience of this yourself them please let me know.

The Venturer BravoWin 2-in-1 mini Windows notebook has an RRP of £149.99, and is available from Amazon UK.
