If an ultrabook is on your shopping list, and you're in the market for some good deals, be ready to spend at least several hundred dollars to buy a model built by a famous manufacturer such as Dell or HP. But on the other hand, if you're on a tight budget, and you're willing to give Chinese products a chance, you've certainly come across the VOYO VBook V3 ultrabook.

Although it bears a name that could easily trick you into believing that it's a device manufactured by VAIO - and that's an honest mistake. The manufacturer is actually VOYO, a company whose purpose is to build products that are similar in look, feel, build quality, and performance to those coming from world-renowned brands.
But there must be one big difference between the devices produced by VOYO and those from other companies, and that's the price.
The VBook V3 Windows 10 ultrabook is a device that's entirely built on this approach, and just by looking at the spec sheet, you realize that whoever designed this laptop has the know-how to work for a bigger company as well.
BUILD QUALITY AND DESIGN
Let's say this from the very beginning: if you think that the first impression counts, then you'll be very impressed with this ultrabook.
The VOYO VBook V3 is thin, offers a nice sensation to the touch, and doesn't share that typical cheap feel that you might be used to if you've previously owned some other Chinese gadgets. The VOYO VBook V3 boasts a premium finish, and you certainly won't be disappointed when seeing it for the first time.
The device has dimensions that can easily rival those of other, more expensive ultrabooks: 33.00 x 22.00 x 1.60 cm / 12.99 x 8.66 x 0.63 in. There's just one issue, though. The laptop feels rather heavy, and although VOYO claims that it tips the scales at 1.5 kilos, you won't trust this figure when holding it in hand. Partly responsible for this is the 10,000 mAh battery, but you can't build a laptop without a large battery these days anymore because nobody would buy it.
We'll let you know if this pays off when it comes to battery life in the section below, so head over to the Hardware category for more information.
Overall, however, the VOYO VBook V3 isn't the typical Chinese laptop that you'd buy with one hundred dollars, but a nicely crafted device that you won't feel embarrassed to use in a room full of people. Truth be told, there's a lot of plastic, but it's not exactly the cheap sensation you'd normally expect from a Chinese product built by a company only a few people heard of.
