When looking for a new laptop to buy, commonly there are several questions we ask the seller. Those questions refer to the processor, screen size, RAM, and hard drive. If all the aforementioned features meet our requirements we take a look at the design and make our final decision. If you act like this when you are going to get a new notebook, I have good news for you – here is the CIVILTOP M651FB, a laptop that will attract you at the first sight. This gadget is packed with a number of affordable features and I’m offering you to get acquainted with its key specs right now.
We have recently reviewed another CIVILTOP laptop, but it came to our way as a budget notebook sporting a business look. This time we’re going to take our hands on a device full of awesome features making the M651FB to write down its name by golden letters.
Honestly, when the CIVILTOP M651FB is not turned on and the logo is covered with something, almost everyone will think they are dealing with an Apple MacBook. Thus almost everything reminds us elements of Apple’s popular product. First, it comes in the same color as the MacBook, a silver-white. But as you remember this laptop should be come to our way in champagne gold as well. Seems the developers and designers have borrowed everything we saw in the prototype.
Second, the CIVILTOP M651FB is very slim and light. It comes in dimensions of 32.50 x 21.90 x 1.80 cm and weighs only 1.473 kg. Remember we said the CIVILTOP S643 is one of the lightest laptops, forget what I said – this devices is the way lighter, thus it is more comfortable when taking it to somewhere. As you noticed, it’s very slim, its height even doesn’t reach 2cm.
The DC Jack, USB 2.0 port and 3.5 mm headphone jack are located on the left side of the laptop, while the right side carries the SD card, Type-C, mini HDMI and USB 3.0 slots. As you see there is no CD driver coming with this laptop, and as I like to say, ultrabooks doesn’t have CD drivers, otherwise they wouldn’t be slim.
The keyboard is a matter of taste, because the area keys are located on is concave to make the key be at the same height as the overall palm rest. But as you see the keys are made of a very affordable material, so you won’t feel any inconvenience when typing.
As you can guess, the CIVILTOP M651FB comes with the backlit keyboard that allows users to type even with lights off. The touchpad is placed the bottom center area of the panel. And finally, the 2MP camera for video calls are located above the 13.3 inch screen.
Personally, I like the design very much, because you won’t find anything that can annoy you. So no complaints in terms of design. Well done, folks!

As I said at the beginning of the post the CIVILTOP M651FB is not a budget laptop like the S643. It’s a mid-class gaming laptop that looks like a MacBook.
