Now I’m not sure if this is the final spec of the Chuwi Lapbook Pro, a laptop that should have been released some time ago already. It’s very similar to the Chuwi Lapbook SE, the same specs with the same weakness, only 4GB of RAM. I was hoping there was an 8GB RAM release coming of this one. Maybe that’s not happening now as this official placeholder with all of the press info complete shows us 4GB DDR4. At least we have Tecalst to the rescue with 8GB of RAM 14″ & 15.6″ Gemini Lake models.
Apparently, the issue is Windows 10 licensing for 8GB is much more than 4GB. A massive $40 USD cost more per unit. Now if Chuwi is reading this, why not just release it without an OS or put Linux on it and later people could install Windows 10 if they wanted it? Better yet, use SO-DIMM DDR4 RAM slots like the Xiaomai 6A, ship it with one 4GB stick installed but allow users to add another 4GB if needed? Problem solved?
On the plus side, this laptop has Type-C USB 3.1 data and charging the other Gemini Lake models lack. And slim bezels with a claimed 90% screen to body ratio, but I’m sure in real life they are double the size of these photoshopped images.
