Update: Latest video from IFA 2018 updated in this post it’s in English and confirms the Lapbook SE has HDMI 2.0 support for 4k 60hz and not 4k 30hz like the Lapbook Air. Now, all we need to do is get Chuwi to release an 8GB model, 4GB is a deal breaker for many of us!
Chuwi’s new Lapbook Air Apollo Lake upgrade, the Lapbook SE with a faster Intel Celeron N4100 Gemini Lake is now available according to Chuwi. This model, if you’ve missed the coverage on the site here, has an edge to edge keyboard MacBook 12 look about it with a fully laminated 13.3″ IPS screen. Which could well be the same screen I reviewed in the Corebook Core M3-7Y30 tablet. It has a metal body and that keyboard is even backlit.
There is 32GB of eMMC storage, but the main storage is an M.2 128GB SSD and it has sadly only 4GB of DDR4 RAM it’s only real weakness on paper. This Windows 10 Home laptop has an Intel wireless AC 3165 card, BT 4.1, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI out, MicroSD reader and D/C 12V 2A charging. The touchpad also looks large and thanks to below video we get a look at it finally on video, a non-promo video that is. It weighs 1.4 kilos and has a 10,000mAh battery or 37Wh. So battery life should be around the 6-7 hours + mark.
The Chuwi Lapbook SE is now just $259.99 at Gearbest on a limit flash, making it cheaper than the other N4100 laptops like the Teclast F5 and Jumper EZbook X4. I hope to have my Lapbook SE next week for review, so stay tuned for that!
