The Likebook P78's processor

In my review of the Likebook P78, I mistakenly thought it was using the Likebook Mars's processor. In fact, the Likebook Mars's processor is different - it is the RK3368 released in Q1 2015. On the other hand, using the CPU-Z app, I found out that the Likebook P78 uses an older and weaker processor - the Rockchip RK3066 released in Q1 2012 (see picture below). The Likebook P10 also uses the Rockchip RK3066.

Further, the RK3066's max memory capacity is 2GB RAM. Hence, both the P78 and P10 are configured with 2GB RAM.

As noted in the P78's review, performance is adequate for an e-reader, but the P78 is sluggish with third-party applications. Thus, an Onyx Boox e-reader is worth the extra cost if the use case expands to include typing documents, browsing the web, navigating large PDF documents and using third-party applications (e.g., the Kindle app and Google Docs).
