    Onda Xiaoma 21 best ultrabook I have got this year. It's thinner and lighter even than my Windows Surface tablet! Yet comes with a bigger and brighter 12.5 inch screen, full keyboard, trackpad and fingerprint scanner!

    Onda Xiaoma 21 Notebook - CHAMPAGNE GOLD - $342
    12.5 inch Windows 10 English Version Intel Apollo Lake Celeron N3450


    Originally I was planning to turn the Onda Xiaoma 21 into a hacintosh Apple Macbook Air alternative for ONLY $340!
    Though I have dropped this idea for two reasons.
    1. Installing OSX on a machine with an Intel Celeron N3450 is a quite complicated process especially for computers with integrated Intel graphics too.
    2. After installing the new Firefox browser in Windows, I'm more than happy with the current setup.

    I use the ultrabook mainly for internet browsing and watching videos, connecting it to TV and projects.

    So I like OSX and Safari for the speed, but the new Firefox is even faster than the Safari! And Windows are more than capable to run any kind of videos I threw at it even 4k at 60fps!
    So I actually enjoy Onda Xiaoma 21 with Windows 10 now.

    Add an 8 hour battery with USB Type C charging and it's a perfect machine for everyday carry. It's super compact and light, doesn't even feel if my bag is empty or with the computer inside! And it does everything I need from a portable machine: fast web browsing, any size/format video playback and works perfectly for presentations when connected to a projector!

    Finally, Linux fans can easily convert this notebook to a Linux machine. I have tested Linux Tail, it run perfectly straight out of the USB drive with no extra setup!

    And I have ordered a tiny 12 USB Type C charger too.
