The HiBook News: Edition Number 990 Or Thereabouts…This Episode: Not A Whole Lot To Report Except…

By Tim

Wow, the title left ya’all hanging didn’t it? Yeah, there really isn’t anything new on the tablet server front since it is still sitting on a large scale shared hosting platform until I can get my cable connected.

However I can still report that the old Chuwi HiBook is still the best overall portable device I own due to its size, speed and usefulness along with decent battery life.  The faster RAM after a BIOS tweak really does make it quite a bit snappier than the Hi12, which of course still has the far superior display and of course that huge 11600 mAh battery, but lots of little annoying glitches, such as not being able to tweak the BIOS!

Both of these devices are still available. Although for the most part you can only find the HiBook Pro  with a super hi-res 2560 x 1600 screen and larger battery, both of which are a bonus! The HiBook Pro is a steal right now at $182!

Lately though I am thinking that once I get cable back online I might just opt for a 7-8 inch super cheap tablet with Windows 10 and see what I can do with it as a server.  I think I have done all I can with the current smaller 10.1 inch HiBook to prove it’s value.

So that is all the news I have for today except for the fact that it is too damned cold outside here! But that will be gone by tomorrow and the world will be right again.

That is all,

Tim

Chuwi’s Tablets Get Some Solid Discounts Over at GeekBuying; We’ve Got 3 of the Best High End Tablets on Offer

By Radu Iorga

Summer’s almost here and what better way to start it than to purchase a new device? Luckily retailer GeekBuying has a series of discounts on Chuwi tablets and we’re about to show you the best 3 high end units on offer. Let’s have a gander!

The list includes compact units, dual boot machines and more goodies, with big or small diagonal. 3 slates caught our eye and all of them are part of the “Hi” series. Interestingly, all of these models have keyboard attachments, which I recommend you also get for the full productivity experience. We’ve also played or tested some of them.

Chuwi Hi10 Plus

An instant classic, the Chuwi Hi10 Plus is a dual boot tablet, that runs both Windows 10 and Android 5.1. It packs a 10.8 inch Full HD screen, with an IPS panel, plus an Intel Z8350 1.44 GHz processor, with Intel HD Graphics Gen 8 and 4 GB of DDR3L RAM. The device comes with 64 GB of storage, of the eMMC variety, as well as a microSD card slot

 

At the back there’s a 2 MP shooter and at the front one with the same res. Connectivity wise, things are pretty modern, ranging from USB Type-C to micro HDMI, audio jack, WiFi and Bluetooth. This tablet uses an 8400 mAh battery is able to dock with a special keyboard. The price is $178.99 with the discount.

Chuwi Hi12

We take things to a higher diagonal, with the Chuwi Hi12. This is a dual boot slate that we actually played with a while ago. It’s got a 12 inch IPS panel with a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution and uses an Intel Z8350 processor clocked at 1.44 GHz. That’s accompanied by 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 11.000 mAh battery.

Cameras include a 5 MP back shooter and a front 2 MP cam too. There’s WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 here and microUSB 2.0, as well as microHDMI. The news gets even better when you learn that you get a full USB 2.0 and 3.0 port too. All of those are available for $234.99.

Chuwi Hi13

Last, but certainly not least we’ve got a big one! It’s the Chuwi Hi13, which is almost an ultrabook. This device runs on Windows 10 and docks with a QWERTY keyboard, plus it integrates an IPS 13 inch screen with a 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution. The screen aspect is 3:2 and inside the machine there’s an Intel Apollo Lake N3450 1.1 GHz chipset, with Intel HD Graphics 500.

Specs continue with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a main 5 MP camera. There’s also a front 2 MP shooter and the tablet provides a generous 10.000 mAh battery. There’s also WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and microHDMI, as per usual. An USB Type-C port keeps things modern here. Two full USB (2.0 and 3.0) ports are obviously included.

And lo and behold, it’s priced at just $339.

There are more hot offers for Chuwi devices on GeekBuying and you can find them all here.

So The New Hi12 Tablet is Still Being Setup Like I Want It. Dumping Unnecessary Files and Running Updates

It’s the New Hi12 Logitab!

So far today I have been watching as Windows 10 very, very slowly un-indexed all the files on the C:\ drive, thereby saving me a little space. That process took an incredibly painful 3.5 hrs to finish.

3.5 hrs to simply un-index the drive? Yeah.

Then we moved on to disk cleanup, which is still currently running, once again promising to free up a whopping 3.99 TB, yeah, Terabytes on a 64 GB drive. One must marvel at Microsoft math. We are currently at about 1.25 hrs on that process, but my guess is that it will free up roughly 3 GB of disk space, most of which is Windows Update leftovers.

Disk Cleanup Also Takes Forever!

So after cleaning all those files out I gained a whopping 500 MB so it really wasn’t worth the effort. But on a more positive note, after using the tablet all day long for over 8 hrs, I am still showing 41 % battery remaining!
