Deals: Chuwi Lapbook Pro 8GB 256GB SSD Model Finally Here

Something a lot of us have been after is finally coming the 8GB’s of RAM we have sorely been missing paired to the Intel Celeron N4100 (Gemini Lake) in a Chuwi laptop. The Lapbook SE has been discontinued for the more modern looking slimmer bezel Chuwi Lapbook Pro. I reviewed then $319 the 4GB version, and despite the 4GB of RAM and only a 64GB eMMC, it runs fine for what it was intended lig...[Read More]

Chuwi Ubook Pro Coming A 2-in-1 Core M3-8100Y Tablet

Update: Chuwi’s confirmed it will be an Indiegogo crowdfunded laptop and the price will be about $600 USD, I’m not sure if that includes the keyboard but I certainly hope so! While I was at IFA and Chuwi’s stand checking out the new Herobook 14″ Laptop this wasn’t available for a hands-on which is a shame. But it’s coming soon the new UBook. It’s called th...[Read More]

Hands-On With The Chuwi HeroBook Pro At IFA 2019

I’m only just back from IFA in Berlin and I did stop by Chuwi’s booth to have a chat and see if they had anything new on display. And sure enough, they did. The Herobook Pro is a new 14.1″ Kaby Lake R laptop that’s in the works. The current model on display was a working prototype but more or less what we can expect for the final version. The first thing I noticed is the si...[Read More]

Teclast T30 Is Coming – An Android 9.0 Helio P70 Tablet

It’s about time I’ve been waiting for someone to put the Helio P70 in a tablet, and Teclast it seems will be the first. The Teclast T30 which is currently listed on Gearbest has a 10.1″ 1920 x 1200 (16:10) screen. It should be fully laminated and powered by the octa-core Helio P70 with Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. This a noticeably faster than the older Helio X20 series 10 core chipsets and...[Read More]

NVISEN Y-M01-8 Core i5 8250U Mini PC Review

I took a look at another barebones Mini PC called the NVISEN Y-M01-8 or B3, B15 on Aliexpress but it’s really the same exact PC. And no, it’s not a weak Gemini Lake or three generations-old CPU but an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 8250U. So quad-core with 8 threads. They have 6M Cache and turbo up to 3.40 GHz. These chips are now becoming more comment with Chinese brands and this is one of the...[Read More]

First Impressions Of The Mechrevo S1 Pro

Currently, I have the Mechrevo S1 Pro, it’s no doubt another brand you haven’t heard of and another first for me too. But I’m going back to the site’s roots testing out unknown brands and taking some risks. This 14” laptop is like the 2019 Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro only smaller. But has upgradable RAM (comes with one stick of 8GB DDR4 2666Mhz) the Whiskey Lake U Intel Core i5 8265U and the newe...[Read More]

The $644 144Hz Nvidia GTX 1650 Chinese Gaming Laptop

So it’s in finally after a few shipping issues the Heimai 7 Nvidia GTX 1650 Chinese gaming laptop from MaiBenBen. Never heard of them? Neither had I, this laptop I picked up for $644 on sale from Aliexpress. The deal seemed too good to be true, 144hz refresh rate screen, 256GB Samsung PM981 NVME, 8GB of DDR4 2666Mhz RAM (1 slot used, one free) Wireless AC , backlit RGB keyboard and room for anothe...[Read More]

AllDoCube KBook 13.5″ – A Downgraded Thinker i35

Update: The official site (Thank you eDstaR) does state it has a fully laminated screen with touch support, so it’s now safe to assume it’s the Thinker i35 just with a different name and Core 6Y30. Plus double the storage. I would have preferred a Core M3-8100Y. These Chinese tech brands have been hit very hard to have to go with older CPUs due to the 14nm shortage and Intel’s hi...[Read More]

Chuwi Lapbook Plus 4k 15.6″ Launched Today

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 1...[Read More]

Mechrevo S1 Pro 14″ Core i5 8265U + MX250 Laptop For $699

This one looks interesting, a 14″ laptop with the specs of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 2019 with an even faster CPU, same GPU and a better price as It’s selling for $699. The Mechorevo isn’t a brand I’ve reviewed before, but for the price, it’s definitely an interesting alternative to the Mi Notebook Pro I might order to review. Powered by the Whiskey Lake U 8265U It&#...[Read More]

Chuwi Lapbook Plus – 4k UHD 15.6″ Laptop (Updated 28th)

Below in this post, I’ve added the official press images. The keyboard looks very similar to the Lapbook SE or Aerobook and the build. This is a good thing, over it looks decent just that CPU confirmed to be the E3950 Apollo Lake isn’t. Sure it has a 12W TDP, 4 cores with 18 EUs on the graphics. Still, a Core M3 or Core i3/i5 would have been miles better. I’m hopefully Chuwi will...[Read More]

First Look At Chuwi’s MiniBook UMPC (Updated 26th)

Update#3: Chuwi has now added an upgrade to the 16GB option for the Core M3-8100Y model only. It’s limited to now $20 the upgrade for 100 units and then $30 finally 200 piece limit. This is only for the 8GB to 16GB RAM upgrade offer. Either way, the upgrade from 8GB to 16GB for $20 or $30 is definitely worth it for 8100Y buyers. My full review of the MiniBook is also now online after 1 week ...[Read More]
