The Chuwi AeroBook is a 2.8 pound laptop with a 13.3 inch display, and an  magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis that measures just about 0.6 inches thick.

With a 6th-gen Intel Core m3-6Y30 “Skylake” processor, the AeroBook isn’t exactly the most powerful notebook around. But it’s got a bit more horsepower and a sleeker design than most earlier laptops from this Chinese PC maker.

The Chuwi Aerobook went up for pre-order earlier this year through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. Now Chuwi is getting ready to launch the retail version — it goes on sale April 29th for $470 (or less if you sign up for an email list to get a coupon).

That price gets you a Chuwi AeroBook laptop with 8GB of RAM, 256GB solid state storage, a full HD display with slim bezels, and a 38 Wh battery. The laptop has a USB Type-C port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, a headphone jack, a microSD card jack.

The laptop also bears a striking resemblance to Huawei’s Matebook line of laptops… which, in turn, draw plenty of inspiration from Apple’s MacBook lineup.

It’s hard to be original these days.

  1. Be aware: Chuwi quality is abysmally bad. My 12.3″ had back screws that kept falling, the screen hinge not closing well, too small USB ports, the charger died early…
    Their support is the same level, you need to send all back to China and they dont comply to EU warranties.
    Better put your money elsewhere

  2. I would be interested in this device, but not having separate physical buttons for the touchpad is a no-go for me. Without them, everything besides light web browsing becomes cumbersome and irritating, and no amount of odd gestures will ever change that. I really wish more models, especially of the thin and light kind, had separate physical mouse buttons.

    1. No need. Just setup two finger right click and the rest of the touch pad becomes left click. Once you get used to it, there’s no going back.

      1. Nice solution. Although the Apple trackpads now don’t have a button, they are the best to use in the industry, with that haptic feedback making it feel like you did click. More Windows10 laptops need to borrow that feature.
