Chuwi CoreBook Goes Live on Indiegogo, as A Crowdfunded 2 in 1 Device

By Radu Iorga

Chuwi is back to crowdfunding with the Chuwi CoreBook 2 in 1 device. Promoted as a sort of iPad Pro rival, in concept and looks, the machine is powered by an Intel Core m3 CPU. This is not Chuwi’s first crowdfunding, as they also had a lot of backing with the SurBook, raising over $1 million.

Back to the Indiegogo newcomer, the CoreBook is a potent 2 in 1 machine with Intel HD Graphics 615 and the promise of 4K video and 3D games. Inside we find 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, 128 GB of eMMC 5.1 storage and 13.3 inch Full HD touchscreen is also in the mix. This display uses an OGS fully laminated panel, that offers sharper contrast, as well as more natural colors.

There’s a 2.5D glass panel upfront to make things even more beautiful. As far as ergonomics go, this is a very comfy machine, that sits quite well in the hand. Upfront we find a fingerprint scanner, ready to unlock the device with a single touch. CoreBook also has a full USB Type-C 3.0 port, used for charging and more. Inside the device we find a 37 Wh high density battery, that is supposed to offer up to 8 hours of average use.

A quick charger of 12V and 3A will take it up to 100% in about 3 hours. This 2 in 1 uses a hinged wide angle keyboard, making it a sort of laptop. It also lets one perform a free adjustment of the device, between zero and 165 degrees. We’ve got 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity for the display, working in tandem with an active stylus. There’s palm blocking technology and writing at less than 30 degree angles.

The OS is Windows 10 and the pricing of the CoreBook is $459 in the early bird system, with 23% discount. The whole pack, with keyboard goes to $499 after 26% off. Backers are expected here for the promotions. A super early bird price will be emailed to the subscribers to the website, with only 50 CoreBook units ready and 250 units of the whole set.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Top 3 Budget Laptops/Notebooks For 2017

By Tim

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today we have a short video from Chris over at TechTablets on the best 3 budget laptops/notebooks of 2017. Surprisingly all three of these are on my list for the perfect notebook for everyday use.

Personally I had already eliminated one from my list simply because the screen wasn’t large enough to warrant being a replacement for my Chuwi Hi12, since it is a mere 0.3 inches larger, albeit with a great hi-resolution display. But all three of the devices mentioned in the video are great, depending upon your needs and budget.

The 3 devices are:

  1. Chuwi LapBook 12.3, 12.3 inch hi-res display, 6 GB RAM
  2. Jumper EZBook 3 Pro, 13.3 inch FHD display, 6 GB RAM
  3. Chuwi LapBook Air, 14.1 inch FHD display, 8 GB RAM, back-lit keyboard

Obviously if price is your primary concern then the EZBook 3 Pro is the best choice at well under $250. If you need screen real estate and a back-lit keyboard then the LapBook Air is the clear choice.

All 3 devices offer easy SSD M2-2242 expansion slots and all three offer decent battery life.

Below you will find the video…

That is all for now,

Tim

Chuwi CoreBook is a Surface Pro Rival, With Pretty Decent Specs and Crowdfunding Behind It

By Radu Iorga

It appears that Chuwi is having quite a bit of hype with its crowdfunding campaign for the Chuwi CoreBook device. Promoted as a Surface Pro rival, the machine brings a Kaby Lake processor and 6 GB of RAM. It also promises an “all day battery life”.

We first wrote about the CoreBook here, as a 13.3 inch Full HD convertible tablet. What amazed us back then was the fact that it had a 2.5D glass panel upfront, something we don’t see on tablets every day. Chuwi is no stranger to crowdfunding success, making the SurBook campaign a hit via the same means, with over 1 million dollars raised. Chuwi Corebook has specs that make it seem like a worthy Surface Pro rival.

The crowdfunding starts in mid November and the machine comes with a fingerprint scanner dubbed “Touch ID”, plus 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It makes use of an Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor and its versatile format lets you turn the device into a tablet or laptop, using a keyboard accessory that goes all the way up to a view angle of 165 degrees. We’ve also got a pen accessory in the mix, which can provide 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity and mimic the feel of an actual pen.

Pricing has yet to be mentioned, but I expect something around $300, to $400 tops. Windows 10 is the OS of choice here and I expect some serious early bird discounts and coupons for it.

Straight Up Comparison of The EzBook Pro 3 and The LapBook Air Notebooks

By Tim

There are a lot of comments on the review sites about the cost of the Jumper EZBook 3 Pro versus the Chuwi Lapbook Air. It all depends on what your needs are.

The superior notebook spec-wise is the LapBook Air…but the EZBook 3 Pro is quite a bit less expensive.

Of course there are upsides and downsides to both, price being the obvious one, but let us check the details.

Screen size?

  • EZBook Pro 3 is 13.3 inches
  • X The LapBook Air is 14.1 inches

RAM?

  • The EZBook has 6 GB RAM
  • X The LapBook has 8 GB

Storage on-board?

  • 64GB for the EZbook 3 Pro
  • 128 GB For the Chuwi LapBook Air

SSD Slot?

  • Both devices can handle at least an M2 2242 SSD

Back-Lit Keyboard?

  • EZBook Pro 3 – NO
  • X LapBook Air – Yes

Cost, which may be your prime factor…and these are current prices that will change big time as the holiday season progresses…

  • EZBook 3 Pro Dirt Cheap at $229 right now!
  • LapBook Air a lot more expensive at $379 at this moment.

Personally I need that extra ram to run a Virtual Machine occasionally,  and that larger screen on the Chuwi is a must, but for most folks I am thinking the EzBook Pro 3.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Chuwi LapBook Air

By Tim

Today we have another video on the Chuwi LapBook Air from Chris over at TechTablets. This is the full review on the LapBook Air and it is quite positive.

The notebook seems to do everything well even some light gaming. Thermals are good and the 8 GB RAM makes for a very snappy notebook.

A quick review of basic specs here:

  • Intel Celeron Apollo Lake N3450 processor
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 128 GB onboard storage
  • M2 SSD slot
  • WiFi b/g/n/ac (dual band)
  • 1920 x 1080 IPS display
  • 10000 mAh battery

The battery life on this unit seems to be very good especially for basic office use, photo editing and some video viewing.

So let us proceed to the video.

This device is currently on flash sale at Gearbest for only $390 for the next few days.

That is all for now,

Tim
