Chuwi launched its first laptop just a few months ago. But the Chinese company has been producing Windows and Android tablets for a while, and has a habit of offering models with either head-turning specs or price tags… or sometimes both.
Case in point? The company’s next laptop features a 12.3 inch, 2736 x 1824 pixel display and 6GB of RAM.
The company hasn’t revealed a price for the Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 yet, but the notebook’s other specs suggest it will be relatively cheap for a computer with the same display panel Microsoft uses in the Surface Pro 4 tablet.
The Lapbook 12.3 features an Intel Celeron 3450 quad-core Apollo Lake processor and 64GB of eMMC storage. But there’s also an M.2 slot under the hood, so you can add your own solid state drive if you want more (or faster) storage.
Chuwi plans to begin selling the Lapbook 12.3 by the end of April. You’ll probably be able to find it at Chuwi’s official AliExpress store, among other places.
Update: Chuwi has revealed some more specs. The laptop measures 11.8″ x 8.8″ x 0.66″ and weighs 3.2 pounds.
Update 2: The laptop is now available for purchase from Gearbest.
It has USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, mini HDMI output, a microSD card slot, an Intel 3165 wireless card with dual-band 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2. And the laptop is powered by a 36.48 Wh battery.
Chuwi says the Lapbook 12.3 should be available by the end of April.
buying from these Chinese locations scare me,,there are numerous horror stories..
*Yawn* More underwhelming Apollo Lake fodder. Where is a compelling Chinese tablet with a Surface Pro 4 display and a Core M processor? They need to release that and then we can talk business . The Intel HD Graphics on these Apollo Lake 2-in-1’s can hardly push pixels enough on full HD devices, let alone QHD/4K-class resolutions.
Given the price difference, the Celeron N3450 is not that much slower than a Core m3-6Y30 on multi-core tests. The Pentium N4200 actually beats the m3 on some tests. Check out https://tinyurl.com/lsr4zjq and https://tinyurl.com/k8qavlr.
A lot of Chinese manufacturers have been releasing these n3450 6GB devices lately.
maybe they should have used Z8500, its much cheaper and a little faster
Are you sure about that? The N3450 appears to be quite a bit faster- especially with regards to graphics (which is important with a high res display.)
