The new 15.6” 4K laptop from Chuwi is now listed on Gearbest.com and you can pre-order it now for $459 USD. It is quite expensive for the spec considering it has a dated Apollo Lake E3950 Quad Core CPU. We do however have a build (similar to a larger LapBook SE) with a full metal housing. Backlit keyboard with number pad.
8GB of DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD and a spare 2280 SSD slot. The star attraction is of course the 4K 15.6” screen with a claimed 100% sRGB and it looks to be full laminated. More on the specs here.
Be interesting to see how long the 37Wh battery last. In the LapBook SE it’s around 8 hours. But this taxing resolution with a 12W CPU should see a good hour if not less than the LapBook SE or other similar laptops.
You can find the LapBook Plus here for pre-order on Gearbest.com. More info on the Chuwi LapBook Plus can be found here in my first post on the new laptop. I’ll do my best to get hold of one of these to review, I can only hope that Chuwi eventually will give this laptop an improved SoC like the Core M3-8100Y as found in the MiniBook and then it would be far more interesting not to mention 3 times as quick.
