Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Chuwi SurBook 12.3 Inch 2 In 1 Tablet PC

By Tim

Today’s video covers the full review of the Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 Windows Tablet PC. It comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets. This device sports a 2736 x 1824 screen resolution which is the same as a Surface Book. This is an IGZO display.

Also included we have either 128 GB or 64 GB of onboard eMMC storage, an Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake CPU, 6 GB of RAM and 2 Full Size USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C 3.1 port.

There is also a microSD card slot in the mix and an optional back-lit keyboard and a stylus. This is a pretty decent device although it has a hefty price tag but is obviously far less expensive than a Microsoft Surface Book.

This one isn’t on my list because of the storage limitations. I would have preferred to see an SSD slot on this device so upgrading storage would be easily available.

So all that being said, let us proceed to the video!

This device is currently available at Banggood for $429.99.

That is all for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Chuwi SurBook Unboxing And Initial Impressions

By Tim

Today’s video come to us from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the Chuwi SurBook 12.3 inch, 2 in 1 device.

This one has 128GB onboard storage and an Apollo Lake N3450 processor. It comes with the keyboard and stylus for $439 at this link.

This looks like a pretty solid unit. Although there is a microSD card there is no way to expand the internal storage.

All that being said, let us proceed to the video.

Incidentally, due to the lack of a laminated screen and no way to upgrade storage on this device it has been removed from my possible notebooks list. Do not get me wrong, it appears to be a fine tablet/2 in 1 and well worth the price, but it simply does not do what I need a notebook for.

That is all for now,

Tim

So Many To Consider And This Is Creating a Conundrum! We Are Talking Notebooks Here.

By Tim

To start with, I have never put a laptop in my lap so the term notebook is far more logical and therefore I shall refer to all of the following products as notebooks! Now that brings us to the subject at hand and that would be which of these new incredible notebooks should I be really considering?

Yes, one of them is a 2 in 1, but is essentially a notebook. So you nit-picky folks out there can shut up right now! I have narrowed my current list down a bit, but there are all sorts of good reasons to buy one over the other.

Almost everything on my list currently happens to be a Chuwi product, because, well, they fit into the price range and offer the best bang for the buck. However the search is still proceeding and some of the players are to be named later. The other device is a Jumper product.

Things that do not concern me as far as notebooks go:

  • I don’t give a damn how well it plays games
  • I really do not care about stylus support
  • As long as it is less than 50 lbs I can tote it easily
  • Thin is nifty, but not at the expense of battery/ports
  • Touch screen is okay, but not a requirement
  • I hate touch pads, so I do not care if they are crap

Things I do need:

  • Intel N3450 processor minimum
  • Full HD resolution minimum
  • 4-8 GB RAM
  • Onboard storage to be either 128 GB or have a slot for a SATA 3 SSD
  • No skimping on ports, (don’t be Apple)
  • Decent battery life. At least 6 hrs or so, 8 hrs+ is better
  • 12.3 – 14.1 inch screen

So all the above being said, here are the players, so far.

Chuwi LapBook 14.1

It has plenty of ports and a decent FHD screen and a super low price! You can pull the back off the unit and add an SSD and increase your storage and disk speed! At the current price of $239, it is a bargain! Check out the specs or watch the videos I have posted, it is a great machine.

Chuwi LapBook 12.3

This one has a super hi-res display and a little panel on the bottom to add your SSD. Very slick, all metal build and reasonably priced! This thing has a lot of advantages  along with the fantastic screen and can currently be fount for about $308!

Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1

This one is off my list based on the video I posted the other day! This one has a touch screen with the same super hi-res display as the LapBook 12.3 and can be purchased with either 64GB or 128 GB onboard storage and a microSD card slot. You can go to the Chuwi site to find this one. So far the best deal is grabbing one of the indiegogo deals at their site! For $439 you get the back-lit keyboard and stylus included.

Jumper EZBook 3 Pro

This is an all metal, thin and light notebook with a 13.3 inch screen and an easily upgradeable storage system via an M2 SSD drive. Add in 6 GB RAM and an Apollo Lake N3450 and we have a good device. The reviews are excellent, it has a good keyboard, a full HD 1920 x 1080 display and is currently on sale for only $230 on Gearbest. You can find the video review I posted on it right here.

Chuwi LapBook Air

We do not have all the specs on this one just yet, except it is supposed to be a full HD display, with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD on board storage. This one is still just a like, not a draft pick.

That is all for this evening,

Tim

Chuwi Surbook Surface Pro Rival Gets Handled in Front of Camera (Video)

By Radu Iorga

We’ve known about the Chuwi Surbook device for a while now, as a pretty nifty Surface Pro rival, that comes on a more budget offering and it was available on a crowdfunding platform. Today, after so many renders we get to see the real device, getting handled in front of the camera.

It all happens in the video below, showing the device in action with a variety of tasks. Chuwi is getting ready to finalize its crowdfunding campaign for the product. The demo shows Office work on the machine and comfy typing on its keyboard, as the slate is propped on a kickstand. We also see some video watching, stylus input and gaming in Asphalt 8.

This budget Surface replacement has a 13.3 12.3 inch screen with a 2736 x 1824 pixel resolution, that works with a bundled pen, offering 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. One of the less appealing parts of the device is the CPU, an Intel Celeron N3450 in this case, which is far from the Core i5 or i7 action of the Surface models. At least we get 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

Chuwi SurBook can still be found on Indiegogo, with prices starting from $299 and going to $399, depending on what you choose. The product’s goal has already been met on the platform, so it’s no doubt that it will be happening. There’s a 10.000 mAh battery inside, Windows 10 as the OS and the all metal body design isn’t bad looking at all. Interestingly, the official page of the device also features a comparison with the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 4, highlighting the pluses of the new product.

Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 Windows Tablet Now Available on IndieGogo, Starting at $299; Has a Hefty Resolution

By Radu Iorga

We wrote about the Chuwi SurBook in April, when it was first announced and we were pretty hyped about this 2 in 1 model. Especially the specs made the device interesting, like the very high resolution and 6 GB of RAM. Now the product has hit IndieGogo, where it starts at $299.

The Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 Windows tablet is basically a Surface Pro 4 alternative. Shipping starts in July and you can order one here. Specs include a 12.3 inch 2736 x 1824 pixel display, while inside we find an Intel Celeron N3450 quad core Apollo Lake CPU, as well as 6 GB of RAM. Those who are willing to pay extra will get a detachable backlit keyboard for $349 and a stylus with 1024 levels of pressure.

Add $50 and you get a keyboard, pen and 128 GB of storage. Keep in mind that this is only the initial offering of the device and retail prices will be higher once crowdfunding is over. On the connectivity front there’s USB Type-C, two USB 3.0 ports, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and an audio jack, plus microSDXC card slot. Other features include a 5 MP back camera, a 2 MP front shooter, stereo speakers and finally a 10.000 mAh battery with up to 8 hours of usage promised.

Chuwi SurBook has a magnesium case, a fanless deisgn and weighs around 2.1 pounds.
