Today the new Chuwi Lapbook Plus 15.6″ 4k laptop has officially launched with a new $439 launch price. This is down from $499 which it was first listed as and $449. For an Apollo Lake E3950 with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 256GB of storage, it’s still pricey considering this is a last gen CPU. However, for light tasks and computing this should still fair fine with a 12W TDP, four cores, with 18 EU’s on that iGPU and a max turbo of 2Ghz. By default, for example, the Gemini Lakes are set at 6W. And driving the 4k display it’s going to need the 12W power limit boost I feel.
The main features of the Lapbook Plus are a 15.6″ 4k UHD screen with 100% sRGB, metal unibody, a second 22 x 80 M.2 SATA3 slot for storage upgrades and a full-sized backlit keyboard with number pad. You can find the special launch price here at Gearbest.
And for those asking if I will review this one, yes it looks like Chuwi will be sending me another loan unit.
