Bmax Y11 Review

Creature Future is an innovative company committed to innovation and developing its R&D research in Shenzhen, China. Currently, they specialize in mini PCs, ultrabooks, and compact computers. This laptop has arrived in a brown cardboard box with the brand name on the front. On the back of the box, there are quite a few certification and recycling stamps.

Inside, in another small white cardboard box, is the charger. This comprises a single part with a USB type C charging plug. The transformer has an output of 12V at 2A. In addition, it comes with interchangeable plugs to connect it to any pin, European, American, or UK.

Occupying practically all the space and protected on the sides with a white and rigid sponge, there is another box where the laptop comes. Inside comes a micro USB 3.0 to USB OTG adapter, quick start guide, warranty card, and the Bmax Y11 laptop.

I liked the packaging; I think it comes well protected. In addition, it is detailed that it came with a USB OTG micro USB adapter. However, since this laptop doesn’t have any standard USB ports, I wish it had also included another USB Type-C to USB OTG adapter to take more advantage of its unique input ports.

Bmax Y11 Review : Design and Screen

This Bmax Y11 is an ultrabook made of metal in dark gray. In addition, it is “convertible into a Tablet” thanks to its two hinges that allow the screen to rotate 360 ​​degrees and thus imitate it.

It weighs only 1 Kg and has a reduced dimension of: 28.48 cm x 18.84 x 13 mm thick, which from my point of view, leaves this ultrabook in a perfect place. The screen frames are very narrow, thus taking advantage of most of the front. It has a touch screen of up to 10 points of type IPS LCD of 11.6 inches with a Full HD resolution (1920×1080 lines). It has a good level of brightness and good viewing angles. A screen that is more than enough to carry out office automation tasks or consume multimedia content. A screen that I liked.

At the bottom is the brand and model name engraved. There is also the serial number, some engraved quality, and recycled stamps and labels. So that it does not slip when we place it on a surface, it has black silicone stops.

Unlike other laptops that have to be disassembled to access the hard drive, this one has a small cover protected with a star-shaped screw, with which we can access it. This is ideal if we want to replace and increase your M2 SSD hard drive in the future.

On the left is the 3.5mm audio jack, an elongated volume up and down button, the power button, a microphone, and a speaker opening.

On the other side, there is another opening for the other speaker, a microSD card reader, another microphone, a micro USB 3.0 port, the mini HDMI, and a USB type C port that will also be the power input.

This Bmax Y11 has a QWERTY keyboard layout without the letter “ñ.” When starting Windows 10, we can configure the keyboard in Spanish as I have done. For those of us who are not used to not having the letter “ñ” on the keyboard, there are stickers or silicone covers available with the engraved letters placed on top of the keyboard and thus know where each letter or symbol is.

The keys are not big, but they have a good separation between them, so there is no problem when typing. The trackpad is quite large compared to the size of the laptop. This one has a good touch, and the pressing of the buttons is good. Finally, I would like to add that it has configured gestures that can be used on the “trackpad” and configurable from the Windows 10 panel.

As I said, it has an outstanding design thanks to its finishes and small dimensions. It is ideal for many people who want practical and versatile equipment. Aesthetically it is very similar to my laptop (Asus Zenbook Flip). Since it is designed for the western market, I would have liked to find a keyboard layout for Spain.


This laptop comes with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit as its operating system. On this occasion, and unlike other laptops I have tried in the past, this one has not given me any errors with the license. It has been possible to update from “Windows Update” itself, receiving Microsoft’s latest official security updates.

The Operating System comes with several pre-installed languages ​​such as Spanish, English, etc. You can also choose the keyboard input language and configure it to your liking according to its distribution.

Computers sometimes come with adware and software called “bloatware.” This time we have a clean installation without commercial applications or additional antivirus. It has Microsoft Office installed, although we must buy a license to use it.

Other software that I have installed have been the Internet browsers “Firefox” and “Chrome.” I have also installed the programs to check the computer’s performance and some additional ones such as VLC and some WiFi signal analyzer from the Microsoft store.

Finally, and to check the status of the operating system, I have installed the Malwarebytes antivirus, and it has not detected any threat that could put the user’s security at risk. Usually, I use the pre-installed Windows Defender, which gives excellent results, except on rare occasions, I install the one I just mentioned.

Bmax Y11 Review : Power and Hardware

It has hardware that doesn’t draw too much attention, but it’s more than enough to carry out basic office tasks. The processor is an 8th generation Intel Celeron Gemini Lake N4100. These are low-end processors manufactured at 14 nanometers and compatible with 64-bit operating systems. They have four cores capable of reaching 2.4 GHz speed.

It uses a 9th generation Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU at 700MHz maximum speed and 8GB LPDDR4 RAM that you cannot replace or expand since both are integrated into the board.

As for internal storage, I would like to detail that it has a 512 GB SSD M2 hard drive, which seems to me to be the best today for all types of computers, including high-end ones. Thanks to this, the operating system and the programs we install will dash, obtaining a lot of fluidity. I think that it is more than enough for this type of computer, however, if this is not enough and as I mentioned before, you can change it from the small opening on the back.

Being a low-priced laptop, it is not intended to overload the system by installing many programs or games, as these might slow down the computer. I think it is designed to work with office software, surf the net, and do tasks that do not require too many resources. I don’t recommend it for video editing or playing demanding games.
