Awo Xiao Ai – Le 14 Notebook Review: The Must-have Thin And Light Book For Young People In The Workplace


[Bestbuy618 Laptop Channel]As people’s lives become more hectic, mobile offices have become a daily occurrence. Simultaneously, demand for portable thin and light notebooks is increasing, both in terms of value and performance; the main thing is the degree of thinness and battery life. With so many thin and light notebooks on the market, deciding which one to buy has become a major issue.

Today’s review machine is the AWO Xiao Ai – Le 14 thin and light notebook. AWO’s Chinese name is Xiao Ai, and this brand may be unfamiliar to some users.

AWO is Raytheon technology’s “chain group contract” model incubated under the creator of small micro-company brand, and they are committed to building young people’s favorite thin and light notebook. This demonstrates that this is a reliable brand.

The AWO Xiao Ai – Le 14 is available in two colorways: silver and gunmetal gray. The test machine I received was silver, and at first glance, its pure silver simplicity drew me in. The notebook, as seen in the photo above, is very small and delicate.

The body is made of metal on three sides, the material is aluminum-magnesium alloy, the slim size of the body is 17.9mm, and it weighs only 1.4kg. It’s small enough to fit in a backpack or handbag, so even if you have to work for a long time, you won’t get tired, which is ideal for business people who frequently need to work outside the office.

When you open the computer, you’ll notice the matte screen, which can be opened and closed 180°. The notebook is designed with narrow bezels on three sides, giving it a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio, and a high color gamut screen that covers 100 percent sRGB, providing a great viewing experience and display of color breadth. Faced with this excellent screen, I chose the Red Spider Sypder 5 Elite to test the color gamut, brightness, and color accuracy of the screen.

In the actual test, AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14 covers 95 percent sRGB, 74 percent P3 color gamut, and the average color accuracy reaches 1.47. The AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14 has excellent color reproduction and accuracy in both the screen parameters and the actual test, and it can easily perform a variety of tasks.

The keyboard area of the AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14 follows, which has a solid feel, more commonly used keys, and a surface coating that is quite comfortable to touch. You can also see that Xiao Ai has installed a fingerprint recognition system in the upper left corner of the touchpad, which allows users to log in with a single key. The back of the body is designed with two rows of cooling holes to ensure that the computer does not overheat. The texture is also very pleasant to the touch, and the overall appearance is very simple, in keeping with professional women’s aesthetics.

Finally, let’s take a look at its interfaces. On the right side of the body, there are two USB-A ports that can support USB3.2 Gen1/Gen2 protocols, as well as a headphone jack and a micro-SD card slot.

The DC power connector, USB-A3.2Gen2, HDMI, and a Thunderbolt 4 port are all located on the left side of the body. This Thunderbolt 4 interface I have to introduce to you, with it you can even charge at up to 65W without the power connector; or you can also use it to external a piece of display, but also with up to 32GB / s speed transfer data, very All-rounder. I got the AWO small Ai – Le 14 equipped with Intel’s 11th generation standard voltage Core i5-11320H processor, so I did not use a single display, using the Iris Xe

To test the performance of this notebook, I used CINEBENCH R20, CINEBENCH R23, CPU-Z, 3DMARK’s Time Spy, Fire Strike, CPU Profile, and PCMARK 10. The single-core score of CINEBENCH R20 is 559pts and the multi-core score is 2341pts; the single-core score of CINEBENCH R23 is 1461pts and the multi-core score is 5846p As can be seen, the single-core performance of the AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14 can assist users in better coping with CPU high load tasks.

The Intel Core i5-11320H has a single-core score of 596.4 and a multi-core score of 2975.3 in the CPU-Z benchmark test. The performance of Intel Xe core graphics is basically equivalent to an entry-level single display, and this test score can basically reflect its level of performance in dealing with daily graphics processing, light video editing, and other work. You can even use it for gaming, as the i5-11320H performs well in terms of 4 and 2 threads in the CPU Profile test.

4 and 2 threads are primarily tested for older DirectX 9-based games or gaming games, such as DOTA 2, League of Legends, and CS:GO, where frame rate typically correlates with the 2 or 4 threads score. The 4-threaded score outperformed the i5-10600K desktop, while the 2-threaded score outperformed the i9-10900K.

In the PCMark10 software modern office benchmark test, simulation of daily web browsing, document editing, forms processing, video conferencing, and other scenarios are used to test its overall office performance. I also tested the CPU performance release, after 30 minutes of single baking FPU test, the CPU power consumption can be maintained at around 35W, the frequency is 3.4GHz, the core temperature is 90 degrees, the heat area is concentrated in the “H, J, K” key near the CPU. Overall, heat dissipation performance is moderate, and the system is relatively stable.

The AWO Xiao Ai – Le 14 comes with 16GB RAM and 512GB PCI-E SSD. The memory latency of AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14 is around 69.3ns with a frequency of 46.5GB/s, which is the mainstream level, according to AIDA 64; CrystalDiskMark8.0 tests the read/write speed of the software, and the sustained read/write is close to 2117MB/s, and the sustained write is close to 2117MB/s, according to CrystalDiskMark8.0. CrystalDiskMark8.0 test software read and write speed, sustained read and write is close to 2117MB/s, sustained write is 1677MB/s, is also a moderate performance, to cope with the daily study office is certainly enough.

AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14 is suitable for light entertainment and business offices.

Finally, I used PCMark 10 modern office software to test the battery life of the AWO Xiaoyi-Le 14, obtaining a score of 11 hours and 42 minutes under brightness 50, volume 50, link WIFI, and best energy efficiency mode. The long battery life ensures that users have no problems even if they go out for a day’s work. The AWO-Le 14 is a good balance of thinness, portability, and strong hardware performance as a thin and light notebook targeted at young people. The metal body adds a sense of premium, the Core i5-11320H processor adds long life and high performance, and with a mid-range price of 4000 yuan, it is simply the best companion for young people traveling and working in the office.

After-sales service is also very secure. Users do not need to go to the designated after-sales network; instead, they can enjoy 2 years of unlimited hardware problems door-to-door service, seamless coverage of the country’s county level, which is both time-saving and convenient.
