Second time’s a charm for Chuwi’s Lapbook, the Lapbook 14.1 proves to be one of the best budget laptops around, but it’s still not perfect. Below is my video review of the Chuwi Lapbook 14.1. There will be a write-up and rating soon, but for now, everythings covered in this video review:
Bottom line: It’s a great laptop, just has one major issue. Thermals, yet again we see a passively cooled chipset getting far too hot gaming. Luckily I do have a fix for this. My thermal mod works a treat on this notebook lowering max temps around 20 degrees, by just adding a 20 x 20 x 1 copper shim, removing the heat shielding black pad on top of the metal shield/heatsink and adding a 2mm thick thermal pad. Works a treat and the bottom hardly heats up at all!
Performance can be further increased by adding an SSD in the M.2 slot and using this as the boot drive (Windows will need to be cloned to the drive or reinstalled to the SSD).
