Review of the Ultrabook LiveFan S1

Some time ago, LiveFan, a Chinese laptop maker, released its new product, Ultrabook S1. This is a compact and fashionable model which is ideal for businessmen and students. Now, let’s check it in detail.

Design and Features

There is no doubt that the new model, LiveFan S1, is eye-catching because of its whole golden shell and slim body. In the middle of the shell, there is the conventional LOGO, LiveFan.

In addition, LiveFan S1 gets a 14-inch comfortable full-sized keyboard (86 keys). For increasing the range of touch, the trackpad is a circle larger than usual models. There is no clear dividing line between the upper and lower, so the bottom left and right corners indicate the conventional left and right buttons of the mouse. And the trackpad button trays are large enough for office user groups. In addition, on the top and sides of the screen, there are respectively four and two highlight pads for preventing the screen from the closing lid damage.

Performance and Specifics

LiveFan S1 has a 13.3-inch IPS panel with the resolution of 1920 * 1080 pixels (2K) and an aspect ratio of 16: 9. Based on Windows 10 operation systems, this novelty is powered by Intel Core M-5Y10c Quad-Core processor (64-bit support). It adopts Broadwell-Y architecture design. Based on 14nm process technology, the TDP power consumption is only 4.5W. And the clock speed is up to 2.0GHz. As for the GPU, LiveFan S1 integrates the 8th generation HD Graphics 5300 graphics chip, which has 24 core cells. In addition, the device gets 8G of DDR3L RAM and solid state storage capacity of 128G / 256G / 512G. And you can replace the SSD solid state storage with a larger one.

Other features include the USB Type-C interface, USB3.0 interface, USB2.0 interface, DC power connector, 3.5mm headphone jack, Micro HDMI interface, etc.

Camera and Battery

On the top of the screen, there is a 130W pixels front camera, which is able to meet the normally required video conference or home entertainment video chat.

In order to meet users’ demand, for long life use, LiveFan S1 was built in a 9600mAh high-density lithium-ion battery. And the manufacturer claimed that it can support up to 7 hours of video play or 10 hours of music play.


Finally, I have to say that LiveFan S1 is not outstanding on its hardware configurations but wins on the compact and humanity design. It is an ideal model which deserves to be concerned by those who pursue fashion and convenience.
