Chuwi Gemibook $299 13″ 2k, Celeron J4115, 12GB + 256GB SSD Laptop

Chuwi’s latest notebook is on sale the Gemibook. This $299 laptop for the price has a lot going for it. 2k 3:2 aspect ratio screen with 99% sRGB, 12GB of DDR4 RAM, spare M.2 2280 SSD slot, and NVMe support. Type-C display out @ 4k60hz. Backlit keyboard and a questionable build (Those Chuwi laptop hinges that don’t seem to last for more than a year or two) This one is powered by the Celeron J4115, Gemini Lake Refresh SoC. 2.5Ghz max, quad-core, and it has a 10W power limit with fan cooling. For light computing, these quad-core SoC do okay and very old games like Counter-Strike on the lowest of setting. Native hardware decoding of VP9 and HEVC means they play most high-quality 4k clips without any issues or lag.

The screen looks to be fully laminated and is in fact the same 3:2 ratio screen found in the $1000+ Huawei Matebook 13 and the keyboard is backlit which looks like the Lapbook Pro’s keyboard or very similar.

Other specs include a USB 3 port, MicroSD reader, and a 38Wh battery. Chuwi hasn’t sent me one of these so It doesn’t look like I’ll be reviewing it. The $299 deal can be found here on Aliexpress.

The Chuwi Larkbox is also on sale for $169. This is an HDMI 2.0 tiny mini PC with 6GB of DDR4 RAM and 128GB eMMC. It’s powered by the same Same Celeron J4115.

  1. There is a difference between “critics” and “signaling”.
    Correct the information take a few seconds, not a century and, probably, to have accurate articles
    is better than the not accurate articles.
    And, curiosity, have you never see a mistaken price in favour of end users?
    To keep this article as example: larkbook at 400 US$ and notebook at 900 US$… wrong and mistake
    are too many time, wrong (to take the clik).

  2. So you expect Chris to check prices every day and update every single post he’s ever made? Get REAL…. I’m grateful for the website and not gonna criticize him for something OUT OF HIS CONTROL…. (PS Sorry, called you Fabio for some reason FatEnzo!)

  3. @ Methanoid: this article is not the Holy book… it’s possible, always to fix the not accurate infos. 🙂

  4. fabio, you comment 3 or more days after he posted.. PRICES DO CHANGE!/… Duh!!!

  5. Hi to everyone.
    2 products, two prices mistake.

    The notebook is not at 300 US$ but at 369,00 US$
    The larkbook is not at 169 US$, but at 238,00 US$

    The disappointment for the wrong prices effect is more strong that the adv…

  6. I bought it at 242€ last Tuesday, shipping from Spain. I can’t wait to get my hands on it… 1440p IPS OGS (same as in the Matebook 13), Quad Core chipset, 12Gb DDR4X, metal body and less than 1.3Kg!!
    Sounds like a bargain to me. Not to mention the 256Gb SSD and a 2nd bay for another SSD…

  7. Does this one have problems with the hinges?

  8. This looks interesting for the price. I might actually buy it.

  9. Says it can charge through USB c on Aliexpress, but then in a review on notebookcheck it says it can’t…

  10. Yeah, the comment about hinges is a MAJOR concern… I’ll pass thanks! 🙂
