The Chuwi Hi13 is the successor to the popular Hi12, it's built around a 13.5-inch 3000 x 2000 screen, with 267 PPI. It's the same screen used on the Microsoft Surface Book. It runs Windows 10, has 4GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC. Other specs include Type-C port, Wireless AC and 10000mAh battery. Optional keyboard dock and active stylus.
Chuwi’s one of the few Chinese tablets manufacturers out there always looking to put the best screens and 3:2 ratio ones in their tablets, well them and Cube.

An interesting notebook from Onda who I normally avoid for build quality issues, well at least in tablets. Called the Xiaoma 41, no not Xiaomi but Xiaoma as in Pony (Translated). Can’t help but feel they messed up on the name, what a stupid naming scheme from them! It’s very similar to the Chuwi Lapbook 14.1, the shame the exact same specs, Quad-core Intel, Celeron N3450, 4GB, 64GB e...[Read More]
Voyo’s Vbook V3 now comes with the new Apollo Lake Celeron N3450 and a larger 12,000 mAh battery but is enough? The Core M3 version had a poor keyboard and thermal throttling. The Atom X5 Z8300 model had USB ports that couldn’t even power external hard drives. Well, the last two points have been fixed, it will power external hard drivers and thermals are good. But Voyo’s poor key...[Read More]

The Chuwi LapBook 14.1 is Chuwi's second laptop after the Lapbook 15.6. This model is 14.1-inches, so it's smaller and is powered by the new Celeron N3450 quad-core CPU, with 4GB of RAM. The build is similar to the larger LapBook 15.6, White high-quality plastic build with a black bezel and matte 1080p screen. This is a budget lapbook, due to sell for under $270 USD on release.
Update 5th Jan: Chuwi just posted this image on their Weibo account today. We can see it looks like a larger version of the Hi12.
