There are lots of fancy, high-concept laptops at CES 2022 to gawk at — and trust us, we’ve been gawking. Problem is, those new laptops all tend to set you back more than $1,000. So, for the folks who just need something solid, portable, and functional, it can be nice to have something out there a little more within reach. That’s where TCL‘s first laptop, the TCL BOOK 14 Go, comes in.
It wasn’t all that long ago that TCL expanded their offerings and entered the smartphone and tablet markets. Now, the company is going even further with the introduction of its first laptop. It’s pretty thin for a first effort, too, at just 13.95mm, leaving it at a back-friendly 1.3kg (about 2.87 pounds).
Inside, the TCL BOOK 14 Go is equipped with support for 4G LTE and runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c compute platform, with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Its 40Wh battery supplies up to 12 hours of use and is Windows 11-ready.
It also offers a 14.1″ display with a 60Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 1366×768. For ports and connectivity, the device offers a USB 3.0 Type-A port, USB Type-C, a 2-in-1 slot (Nano + TF), and a 3.5mm audio jack.
So yeah, nothing that bowls you over in the specs department — at least, not until you peep the $350 asking price. That’s a solid machine for anyone that needs something quick and light on the go to get the kind of work done that doesn’t require a ton of computing power. Won’t be serving that purpose just yet, though. The TCL BOOK 14 Go is expected to be available in selected regions by the second quarter of 2022.
