important point The fan noise is loud when a high load is applied.

I tried to see how noisy it would be when it was loaded.

Measured from a distance of 30 cm in height and 30 cm in depth from the hinge, taking into consideration the position of the ears during use.

When idle Almost silent
* When you bring your ears closer, you can finally hear a small noise.
Benchmark test Around 50.2db

* The number of db in the benchmark test is the loudness measured on this site. We do not guarantee that there will be no louder sounds.

It is quiet when idle or when there is no heavy load.

The fan noise (exhaust noise) when a high load is continuously applied is unexpectedly loud.is.

If the fan noise becomes loud in a quiet place such as a study room, you may be a little worried.

In cafes, etc., there will be no problem as it will be drowned out by the surrounding sounds.

■ Estimated noise (number of decibels)

Pretty noisy 70db In a noisy office
Noisy 60db Ordinary conversation in a moving car
ordinary 50db Quiet office
quiet 40db Quiet residential area, library

▶ Keyboard

▲ Tap or click to enlarge

Some of the keys on the upper right may be smaller, but the keyboard layout is well-balanced.

The ease of typing isn’t hard to type, it’s not messed up, it’s normal.

The keystroke (the distance the key sinks) is about 1.2 mm, which is rather shallow.

Because the keystrokes are shallow, the start of hitting is hard, and the typing feeling that the keys enter from there quickly, so
Suitable for typing with small finger movements.
 

For function keys (F key), Windows default functions such as full-width katakana conversion are prioritized.

F key

(To use the unique functions assigned to the F key, such as raising and lowering the volume, press the Fn key at the same time.)

▼ The key top (the surface of the key) is almost flat.

Key top up image

The loudness of the typing sound is a little small.

Comparison with desktop PC keyboard

▲ Comparison with desktop PC keyboard

▼ The key pitch (distance between keys) is about 19 mm, which is said to be easy to type.

Key pitch

▼ The palm rest is large enough.

Place your hand on the palm rest

Since the body is thin, the level difference with the desk is small and your hands do not get tired easily.

Equipped with keyboard backlight

The keyboard backlight can be turned on / off with the Fn + F7 keys. Brightness can be adjusted in 2 steps.

Touchpad

A touch pad with an integrated click button.

The clicking sound when you press the touchpad is rather loud.

▼ In additionDouble-tapping the upper left corner of the touchpad is convenient because you can turn the touchpad on and off.

Touchpad off

▲ The indicator lights up when the touchpad is off.

▶ Speaker

Equipped with a speaker on the bottom.

Mouse computer DAIV 4P speaker

I felt that the sound quality of the speakers was “I want a little more sound omission.” I think the sound quality is high enough to enjoy music while working.

In addition, “THX SPATIAL AUDIO For PCs” is installed, and you can adjust the sound quality to some extent.

THX

▶ Display

A liquid crystal display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 dots.

The aspect ratio (aspect ratio) is 16:10, which is longer than the typical 16: 9 display.

Since it can be displayed vertically long, it is advantageous for displaying vertically long content such as the web and SNS.

The display is easy to see, as it looks a little dark even when viewed at an angle.

Since it is a non-glare liquid crystal, it is difficult to be reflected.

The display of the mouse computer DAIV 4PSince it is a non-glare (non-glossy) liquid crystal, it is difficult to reflect.

How the light is reflected on the display

Light is reflected during work and it is hard to flicker, soEye-friendly and practicalis.

▶ Battery life

For DAIV 4P, you can set the performance from the start menu ⇒ Control Center.

This time, I set it to “balance mode (turbo mode is off)” and measured the battery life.

▶ Creative app performance

for real,I tried using some Adobe applications and checked how comfortable they were.

Adobe Premiere Pro

I tried editing 4K video by easily inserting keyframes and telops, but I was able to work comfortably without feeling the weight.

* Since the DAIV 4P display itself has full HD image quality, it cannot be previewed in 4K image quality.

Adobe Photoshop

Images with a large resolution could be filtered in an instant, and I was able to use them comfortably.

Adobe Illustrator

Even if you move objects with drop shadows on top of each other in Starize, you can use them comfortably without slowing down the movement.

However, with the DAIV 4P touchpad, it was difficult to move with “Space + Drag (palm tool)”.

――Checking processing performance ――

■ CPU of review machine

  • Intel Core i7-1165G7
  • 4 cores / 8 threads
  • 2.8GHz-4.7GHz

The performance is sufficient for video conferencing, work in Word and Excel.

Image editing is sufficient in terms of processing performance, but the Adobe RGB coverage rate is not up to 100%.

However, the measurement result shows that the Adobe RGB coverage rate is 77%, which is a wide color gamut for a liquid crystal display.

You can edit the video to some extent, but it will take longer to render than a notebook with an external GPU.
 

* In the benchmark test conducted below, the operation mode of Control Center was set to “balance mode” and measured.

▶CPU performance

Average score of the same CPU in PassMark 10590Since it has a higher score than, it can be said that the CPU performance is good.
* Average value as of July 8, 2021

▶ SSD data transfer speed

SSD data transfer rate

It’s not particularly fast for a PCIe 3.0 x 4 SSD, but I think it’s practically fast enough unless you have many opportunities to copy large amounts of data.

In addition, it is overwhelmingly faster than SSDs and HDDs with SATA connection.

By the way, DAIV 4P can be customized by increasing the SSD capacity up to 2TB.

SSD Information

It was an SSD made by Micron.

* Laptops of the same model number may be equipped with SSDs from different manufacturers.

▶ Graphics performance

The graphics of the mouse computer DAIV 4P“Intel Iris Xe Graphics”is.

3DMark score
Fire Strike 3781
Time Spy 1515
Dragon Quest X Benchmark
Highest quality(1920×1080) 9268 Very comfortable
FF14 Jet Black Villas Benchmark
Standard quality(1920×1080) 4329 comfortable

* Graphics settings are measured with settings for “notebook PCs” except for the highest quality.

Street Fighter V Benchmark
resolution Average frame rate / result
1440×900 59.94 FPS comfortable
1680×1050 51.67 FPS Insufficient specs
1920×1200 41.30 FPS Insufficient specs

The specs were insufficient for 1920 x 1200, but it was possible to play if the resolution was reduced to 1440 x 900.

So, light 3D games such as Dragon Quest X have graphics performance that you can play normally.

――Appearance and other checks ――

▶ Appearance

It’s simple, stylish, and looks good.

▶ Summary of review of mouse computer “DAIV 4P”

This is a summary of the reviews of “Mouse Computer DAIV 4P”.

DAIV 4PIt is a good laptop because it is very lightweight, has a good design, has a wide color gamut, and has high CPU performance.

It is anxious that the exhaust noise is loud when a large load is applied, but I think that there is no choice but to make full use of the CPU performance.

Recommended for those looking for a lightweight laptop for creative work on the go!
