Hello Eve Community!
It’s been a few days with my M3 V from December Flash Sale. I’m ready for a verdict.
In short: brilliant.
In long: this device is brilliant.
I’ve never been much of a Mac guy. Windows is preferred.
Never been much of a laptop guy either. Tower PCs are preferred.
This is the first time I’m using a laptop-esque device in a 2-in-1 form factor. Feels good man.
Eve Tech stood out to me the moment I found out about it. Placed my order as soon as I could on December flash sale. Been waiting ever since end of may. A full 6 months wait. Approx. 176 days. But who’s counting, right?
It was frustrating. But never worth to cancel the order. Communication was … meh. But Eve Tech is new in the business. Let’s forgive (but not forget).
Friends and family weren’t kind when they heard me talking about this order I placed on some exotic device. Told me it’d never arrive and as time passed they thought it only proofed their point. Welp, they made big eyes when I showed up with this beauty. Mom is thinking about ordering one for herself now.
I’m typing this on my terrace in broad daylight and the display can hold up. Listening to music via headphones, too. Nice. Tried the speaker: what do you guys have? They’re fine. No Bose© Deluxe but absolutely fine. Gosh.
Keyboard: Not what I expected. A bit weird at the beginning but you get used to it fast. Nice soft feeling. High quality keys. Funky keys, too (“v”, “oops”). Muy gusta. Bluetooth: nice. RGB: nice, bit dim but excellent in low-light conditions. Functionality [top row F-keys]: well chosen
Port selection: muy bien. Suck that @[allCompetingDevicesOnTheMarket]. Honestly: wtf are manufacturers thinking??? My Mac-buddy uses 2 different dongles for his inferior machine.
Performance: 7th gen M3 core. Looks pretty bad, eh?
Nope. Very good choice. I’m doing typing, office, browsing the web, play music, stream. Core does the job.
Boots in 7 seconds. Loads programs within 1-2 seconds. Enough RAM for days. Enough storage for days [I’m used to store data offline so external hard drives are my thing]. 128GB Excellent.
Why would you buy this device exactly if you need a performance machine? That’s not the point of the V. Sure, it has a Thunderbolt port for those juicy eGPUs but I won’t be using it. If I need (rendering) power, I use my PC that has been designed to specifically do just that. Jeez don’t hit on the V just because it doesn’t have a GTX1080ti i7 8XXX-K built in. That’s not the point.
Battery: holds up for my workload for around 9 1/2 hours.
Dbrand: (optional) fantastic. I’m so glad Dbrand has Eve Skins in stock. Looks marvelous.
BUY. BUY. BUY.
Worth every penny. Worth the wait. Worth the experience.
10/10 would buy again.
A word to Eve Tech
Eve Tech: you made a beautiful device. You delivered. You amazed.
I’d be more than happy to be a customer again, perhaps a V2 in the future. But please - scratch the wait time.
