Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 Apollo Lake N3450 (Updated)

Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 Apollo Lake N3450 (Updated)

Update: 20th December. The official price will be $299 USD and it’s due to be released on the 22nd of December. And yes, I’ve ordered one so it will get a full review.

Chuwi’s second laptop the Lapbook 14.1 (Called that because it has a 14.1″ 1080p IPS screen) is coming at the end of this month. This model is a step up from the first Lapbook the 15.6″ model with a weaker Atom X5 Z8300 or Z8350. It has the new Intel Celeron N3450 (Apollo Lake 14nm) with Intel Gen9 graphics, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 64GB eMMC. The battery is 9000mAh which should be good for 7 hours or more and unlike the first model it has dual band Wireless AC.

It’s 9mm thin at the front with the rear coming in at 20mm. The screen bezel is 8mm and the weight is 1.3 kilos.

The Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 is powered by Windows 10 Home (Redstone) and has two full sized USB ports, MicroSD slot and mini HDMI output. It charges via a D/C in port.

This one does look a lot more interesting than the Lapbook that I though wasn’t bad, mostly let by the Atom X5 Z8300 and slower 1066Mhz RAM.  I’ll aim to review this. Gearbest has it listed for $292

Chinese tablet news, hands on videos and reviews of the latest Chinese tablets. I don't review or cover just anything, only tablets I think are good enough and worth the attention.

    Eh, kind of expensive.

    You can find plenty of better-spec’d laptops for $300 on flash sales.

    I hope this one has a real IPS and upgradeable RAM.

    But a laptop with just 64GB storage?

    I don’t know, this storage may be considered enough for more entertainment targeted devices (tablets) in the lower end, but if you want a “full-time” keyboard and a less portable device, this implies a more constant operation and working more with files than accessing content via the internet.

    With this much storage
    – instead of being a lighter laptop (in weight and performance)
    – it becomes a heavier and bulkier tablet
    i.e. its specs are seen more from a negative point of view instead of a positive one.

    it will be interesting to have the possibility to add a hard drive or ssd, cause 64GB it’s not enough

    Indeed, this (new) one is really interesting; already checking it on GB 🙂
    They could have used a N4200 BTW, like the Chuwi MiniPC…

      I think they went with the N3450 for less heat as it hs lower clocks?

        Yes, that makes sense -> on Voyo V1 Mini (with N4200), I didn’t see that there was a fan… 😉
