Review: Nokia PureBook Pro 15.6"- Nokia PureBook Pro 15.6" ; Simply productive. Boosted by the latest 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, Windows 11, and upgradable memory and storage

The Nokia PureBook Pro 15.6″ by Off Global, which carries the Nokia brand, offers an entry-level laptop option with a touch screen and fingerprint reader. The laptop is aimed at the budget-conscious segment, and while it comes with some interesting features, there are several aspects to consider before deciding whether it’s convincing enough.

Dimensions (width, length, thickness)237 x 358 x 19mm
ProcessorIntel Core i3-1220P

Construction and Design:

The laptop’s aluminum cover gives it a quality appearance, but upon closer inspection, the overall design and materials used reveal its entry-level nature. The keyboard and touchpad are serviceable but not exceptional. The keyboard has a soft typing experience with plastic keys that feel basic. The touchpad is functional but not outstanding. One notable feature is the fingerprint reader integrated into the power button for quick unlocking. However, the build quality and design might not be up to par with more premium laptops.

Connectivity and Disassembly:

The laptop offers a comprehensive selection of ports, including USB-C 3.2 ports, USB-A 3.2 port, microSD card reader, and a headphone jack. The ability to disassemble the laptop for upgrading components like the M.2 SSD and RAM is a positive point. The laptop’s cooling performance is average, and the heating remains manageable even under load.


The laptop is equipped with an Intel Core i3-1220 P processor, which is a surprise in terms of efficiency and performance. The thermal envelope of 28 W (with the potential to rise to 64 W) allows the processor to perform well in office tasks and some light multitasking. However, the laptop may struggle with more demanding tasks like heavy photo or video editing. The SSD’s read and write speeds are decent.

Screen and Display:

The laptop features a 15.6-inch touchscreen with a Full HD IPS panel. While it’s a touchscreen, the display quality falls short in some areas. The thick bezels and reflective panel impact the overall visual experience. The color accuracy and brightness aren’t exceptional, and the display’s Delta E and color temperature are not ideal.

Audio and Battery Life:

The laptop’s speakers deliver average sound quality with lacking bass and emphasized midrange. The headphone output, however, is better with good characteristics. In terms of battery life, the laptop offers around 6 hours and 52 minutes of video playback, which is relatively modest compared to some competitors.

The Nokia PureBook Pro 15.6″ stands out in terms of its performance given its Core i3 processor. However, it also showcases some of the typical drawbacks of entry-level laptops, including design limitations, display quality, and battery life. The laptop’s price point positions it against better-equipped competitors, which could make it less appealing. Ultimately, whether it’s convincing enough depends on your specific needs and priorities, particularly if you’re looking for a budget-friendly laptop primarily for office tasks.
