Connectivity & IO
Connectivity options on the Ultra II are on three sides of the chassis. From the left you have the single USB 3.1 Gen 2 port (10Gbps), a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack for for audio and a separate mic input.
Around the back you’ll find the Thunderbolt, HDMI and Gigabit Ethernet Port.
On the right side, you finally have two additional USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports and of course the mandatory UHS-I SD Card reader.
The Ultra II also features Bluetooth and the latest WiFi 6 (802.11ax) connectivity.
The Wootbook Ultra II is Windows Hello compatible and as such features an IR webcam with a dynamic mic for audio pickup. It isn’t fancy by any means, but it gets the job done. It’ll work for Zoom, Skype or any other webcam application, but you’ll certainly need something better for low light conditions, as it doesn’t hold up well in low light. Still it is more than serviceable for the aforementioned applications.
For your typing or gaming needs rather, The Ultrabook II uses optical mechanical switches. If you’ve ever used a low-profile scissor switch keyboard, you’ll know exactly what kind of tactile feedback to expect. Actuation time for these switches is claimed to be 1ms with a short travel of only 2mm. The keyboard supports full N-Key rollover as well, so overall its gaming Bonafede’s are legitimate. Worth noting is that no matter how hard your keystrokes, the keyboard remains firm with no signs of flexing whatsoever. As if that wasn’t enough, the keyboard supports full RGB per key lighting via the Control Center. So far, the Ultra II ticks every single box for what qualifies as a gaming notebook.
Finally we get to the glass touch pad. Your fingers will glide easily on this, and it’s precision is quite remarkable. Should you wish to disable it for your gaming mouse however, you simply click on the left corner twice. Easily among the best touch pads I’ve ever used.
