Infinix INBook X2 Colorful, Affordable Thin & Light Laptop

Infinix InBook X1 1

Infinix just released its 14-inch Windows 11 InBook X2 laptop. It is a thin, light laptop that weighs in at 2.73 lbs (1.24Kg), and seems to be targeted for the $500-$600 segment.

With more people using online meetings and doing more online activities, computers are in high demand. Infinix claims that it can deliver superior value in certain areas, such as webcam quality and display.

Laptop webcams are often inferior to smartphones’ selfie cameras. To improve lighting conditions, Infinix added two fill lights to the webcam. This is something I’ve never seen done by anyone else.

The chassis of the laptop is all metal and feels nice to the touch. It is also available in four colors: red, blue, green and silver, which is unusual for the price and material.

Its 14.8mm thickness makes it very small and easy to carry but is big enough to hold plenty of ports including two full-size USB ports and one full-size HDMI port.

The chassis opens with 11 screws. It appears well-ventilated so cooling the Intel Core CPU i7-1065G7 should not be an issue.

The i7-1065G7 CPU is an older design. It was used in high-end laptops like the Dell 13 2020. Now, it’s useful for more affordable systems.

The INBook X2 includes a 45W power source. This makes me wonder if the laptop can draw as much power from other laptops based upon the same CPU but with a 65W adapter.

If the system tried to draw more than 45W, I would expect a slight speed differential. This is common in benchmarking and gaming.

The 50Wh lithium-ion battery can only be charged using a particular USB-C port. This capacity is slightly lower than the average for this category, which has sizes ranging from 43Wh to 68Wh.

The 14-inch display features a 1080p resolution and 300 NITs brightness. It also has a 100% RGB color gamut. These specifications are excellent for this category where it is not uncommon to make compromises on the color gamut.

It should be able to compare well with the competition if it is available at our price. It would be interesting if the INBook X2 Pro is available (there is an X1 Pro), however, that’s another story.

Last but not the least, Infinix laptops can be optimized for file transfers and communications with mobile phones such as the Infinix Zero.
