Chuwi At CES – New Model Announcements For 2018

Chuwi’s going to be present at CES 2018 in Las Vegas (Tuesday the 9th to Friday the 12th). They will be showing off the Corebook, Surbook and Hi9 models. The Chuwi Corebook is closing the gap also to the $200,000 Indiegogo crowdfunding milestone. Once it reaches this figure, Chuwi will upgrade the 128GB eMMC 5.1 spec storage to SATA3 spec 128GB’s which is great news. The RAM has alread...[Read More]

Chuwi Hi9 – 2560 x 1600 OGS 8.4″ Android 7.0 Tablet

Chuwi’s back with a new tablet, this one’s called Chuwi Hi9. With a fully laminated 8.4″ 2560 x 1600 JDI screen with 2.5D glass edges. The chipset powering this Android 7.0 tablet is a MediaTek MTK8173, quad core with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and PowerVR GX6250. It’s got 64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage (Great) and has a MicroSD card slot. And micro USB 2.0, but no HDMI out. The battery i...[Read More]

Chuwi Corebook To Get 8GB of RAM

Chuwi just recently posted on their twitter, if they pass $100,000 mark they will be upgrading for free the CoreBook’s RAM from 6GB to 8GB putting it then inline with competitors Core M3-7Y30 tablets. The current money raised is $80,000, so 20k short but I can see them reaching this goal. I hope the next move is to make the 128GB eMMC a SATA3 SSD instead, at least like what we have in the Cu...[Read More]

Chuwi SurBook Mini Hands-On

The smaller version of the Chuwi Surbook has arrived for my unboxing and review. The Surbook Mini is only 10.8 inches and uses the Microsoft Surface 3 screen. It’s 1920 x 1280 fully laminated with over 450 nits of brightness and by far the best part of this 2-in-1 tablet. The keyboard still hasn’t shipped but should in a week or two, hopefully in time for my review. It’s got 2 x ...[Read More]

Chuwi CoreBook Now Live On Indiegogo

Chuwi’s Corebook crowdfunding is now live on Indiegogo.

The keyboard has a wide-angled hinge and also doubles as a cover for the tablet. The pricing starts at $399 for just the tablet (limited to 50 units) and $439 for the tablet + keyboa...[Read More]

Chuwi Surbook Mini – $249 2-in-1 Windows Tablet Released

The Surbook Mini is due to be released today. This is a smaller version of the Surbook I reviewed. It’s built around the 1920 x 1280 3:2 aspect ratio Surface 3 screen. 450 nits bright and fully laminated, so this should be a decent display, exactly the same as my Surface 3 Atom Z8700 I had back in 2015 and it was a good panel. The screen also supports an active stylus, the Chuwi HIPen H2. Th...[Read More]

Top 3 Fan-less Budget Laptops Of 2017 (Intel Apollo Lake)

Out of all the Celeron N3450 laptops, I’ve looked at these 3 here are my top picks. These laptops share the same chipset the Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake, Intel wireless AC, full metal builds and are completely silent as they are passively cooled. They all have SSD hatches on them for quick and easy installation of a 2242 SATA3 SSD and their bios has unlocked power limits settings. All of...[Read More]

Chuwi Lapbook Air Review Now Online. A Top N3450 Laptop

The Lapbook Air review is now online. This latest N3450 laptop is by far the best with 8GB of RAM, backlit keyboard and 128GB eMMC 5.1 spec drive and SSD slot. The screen is also the second best, nothing can top the Lapbook 12.3’s anti-glare Surface Pro screen. But this glossy, glass covered 1080p IPS is bright, with deep blacks and good colors. The glass is fully laminated really makes that...[Read More]

Caution: Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 Downgraded. No More M.2 Slot?

Thanks to Spemerchina for pointing this one out and the others that PM’ed me. It would seem the Lapbook 14.1 I reviewed from Chuwi has had a revision, not a minor one but a new PCB design and there are some positives like a new heatsink made from copper. The only one was only tin and not so effective requiring my copper heatsink mod. But the battery size seems a little smaller and changing t...[Read More]

Chuwi Lapbook Air First Impressions And Hands-On

This Chuwi Lapbook Air could be the last Apollo Lake N3450 laptop I review, and possibly the best one? Maybe even topping the EZbook 3 Pro V4. It’s also the first Apollo Lake laptop to get 8GB of RAM, only a few Apollo Lake mini PC’s use 8GB and the rest of the laptops I’ve reviewed have 6GB or 4GB. So it’s great having the extra RAM.

The Chuwi Lapbook Air is now up for preorder, $336 for a limited time with coupon chuwinew02 over at Gearbest. Slightly better than the first price of $379.

Chuwi Surbook Review Online

Good thing I took my time with this review, as the first batch (my unit) shipped with a bad touchscreen driver. This resulted in an insensitive touch panel where not every touch input would register. Lucky for my review the updated driver was released by Chuwi and this solved the issue. Making the tablet very usable as a result and not frustrating like before.  Below is my video review of the Surb...[Read More]
