Update: The SurBook campaign is now live here.
Edit: The Indiegogo page is in draft mode. My order was refunded. Chuwi told me they have some issues with the crowdfunding page and they will launch it again as soon as possible once they sort out everything. I’ll let you know when it’s live again. Seems like it wasn’t quite ready.
Chuwi also said in the email that if you subscribe with your email on their Surbook page you’ll get a lower price offer or some sort of perk (No idea what it is)
Chuwi’s Indiegogo campaign has kicked off for the Apollo Lake N3450 6GB Surface Pro 4 style 2-in-1. It’s starting from $299 which gets you the 64GB version and $399 or the 128GB version with keyboard and stylus. The type cover style keyboard is backlit and the tablet has a kickstand and two full sized USB 3.0 ports with a USB 3.1 type-c port. And the screen is the Surface Pro 4’s 12.3″ panel, a premium 2736 x 1824 IPS screen.
The SurBook looks great, I just wish they offered a Core M3-7Y30 version of it. Hopefully, that will come in the future. Funny how they call it powerful, but it has an Apollo Lake, it’s adequate for light tasks as I’ve seen in the Chuwi Hi13, powerful I would say if it had a Kaby Lake i5 or i7.
The Indiegogo Chuwi SurBook page is here.
So far only 3 orders/backers and one of those is me 🙂
