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.

Teclast P10 – 10.1″ Octa-Core Android 7.1 Tablet For $110

Teclast’s Master T10 turned out to be a very good tablet and there is this P10 Octa core that I missed till now. This one looks like a budget version, it has a 10.1″ screen like the Master T10. However, the resolution is 1920 x 1200, not the 2560 x 1600 on the T10. But this resolution suits the Rockchip RK3368 Octa-Core powering the tablet and its SG6110 GPU. The build weighs 520 grams...[Read More]

I don’t have to resort to using a mouse ...[Read More]

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]

Coming This Week – Mi Mix 2 Unboxing, EZBook 3 Plus & Surbook Reviews

This weekend has been a bit hectic, I’ve moved from the studio apartment in the center of town over to another apartment with air conditioning.
