Venom BlackBook Zero 14 Phantom Review | Best Laptop Reviews

by Uneeb Khan

There aren’t many laptop manufacturers you could call ‘independent’ operations, and of those a huge proportion are going to localize rebranding operations of overseas clean skin laptop manufacturers like Cleva.

So, what Venom computers do – i.e build laptops from the ground up to compete with global giants like Apple or Microsoft – is rather unique.


Venom Computers create laptops from the ground up to take on the likes of Apple and Microsoft, and they’re rather distinctive in that way as well.

Building a laptop is a complex undertaking that requires an in-depth knowledge of current PC components and a substantial budget to get things off the ground.


Building a laptop is no small task, it requires an in-depth understanding of current PC components and a considerable budget and funding allocation to get things off the ground. But no matter how hard it is for small businesses to get a foot in this market, consumers are mainly interested in getting the best product for their money.

The Best way to choose a Laptop

The BlackBook Zero 14 Phantom comes in a handful of configurations so you can upgrade the CPU to an 11th Gen i7, double the RAM allocation to 16GB and swap it to a 1TB SSD for $1,699 (£1,249, AU$2,699).

If you have a unique need set you can increase the SSD or the RAM allocations further from here, but for most a 1TB SSD will be more than enough for a work laptop.


Other features that stand out include two power supplies, which allow you to leave one plugged in behind the desk at home or at the office and the other in a travel bag or briefcase so that you may leave the house or the office more quickly.

The device also includes a convenient USB recovery disc, which makes it much simpler to start again in the event that the user needs to do periodic device resets as part of normal operation.


This is a reasonable RRP for an i7 with 16GB of RAM, roughly lining up with the cost of a Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13.5-inch when you factor in the bigger SSD, but there are a couple of caveats that are worth pointing out.


A pretty standard 14-inch Full HD IPS display that has a sRGB color gamut is the next item on the specification sheet, and it’s when things start to seem a little more predictable. 16:9 is still a really common form factor in all sizes, but Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Lenovo, and MSI have all switched to 4:3, 3:2, or 16:10 aspect ratios on at least their smaller form factor devices.

The Good way to choose a working laptop

This is despite the fact that 16:9 is still a really common form factor in all sizes.
The first is that devices like Dell’s virtually identical late 2020 XPS 13 were out for more than a year before the BlackBook Zero 14 Phantom launched and there’s some decent discounts to had on these devices now that Intel’s 12th Generation mobile processors are just round the corner.


This is due to the fact that 16:9 is a cinematic format, and while it is functional for the playback of media, the typical web page or document is roughly the size of an A4 page, and as a result.

It occupies approximately three quarters of the width of a screen such as the one found on the BlackBook Zero 14 Phantom. The awkward width of today’s best laptops convert into vertical space, making it possible to see more of the web page or document you are working on.

This isn’t a deal breaker, but it is something to keep in mind when shopping.
The other difference is that virtually all of the competition has a slightly higher resolution and more colour accurate screen, which makes the BlackBook Zero 14 Phantom a hard sell for anyone intending to use their laptop for visually creative work.


A HDMI port, a microSD card reader, and a couple of USB Type-A ports included in addition to the more common USB-C and 3.5mm audio jack ports.

These interface options were extensive in comparison to the options available today, which limit to using only USB-C.

The Features has in it

Even though having an HDMI port isn’t as as necessary as it was a few years ago, having one is still a good safety net because it allows you to hook into pretty much any monitor and provides you with basic plug and play compatibility.


The keyboard and trackpad were nice enough this time around, ditching some of the idiosyncratic layout decisions of the last iteration. Both felt comfortable over long sessions and offered everything you’d need for a work device.

While the BlackBook Zero 14 Phantom didn’t offer a fingerprint sensor, it does come with Windows Hello Facial Recognition, but we suspect some business customers will disappoint.

Conclusion

The interface options were extensive against today’s USB-C only alternatives including a HDMI port, a microSD card reader, and a couple of USB Type-A ports, alongside the more common USB-C and 3.5mm audio jack ports.

While the HDMI port isn’t as essential as it was a few years ago, it’s still a nice safety net to be able to plug into pretty much any display and get basic plug and play compatibility.

The active cooling system is quiet, even when running at full tilt and the heat that does radiate through the magnesium alloy chassis is confined to the space above the keyboard, well away from your palms.
