Chinese device maker Teclast’s latest tablet is a Windows-powered model with an 11.6 inch full HD display, an Intel Celeron N3450 quad-core APollo Lake processor, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.
It’s called the Teclast X3 Plus, and it’s available for purchase/pre-order from Geekbuying, AliExpress, (and from Gearbest soon too) for around $360 to $400.
Aside from the reasonably low price tag (compared with tablets from better known companies, it’s probably the 6GB of RAM that’s the stand-out feature).
Since many recent Windows tablets have memory that’s soldered to the motherboard and cases that aren’t meant to be opened, the amount of memory you get when you buy the computer is all you’re ever going to have. So if you think you might want more than 2GB or 4GB, you have to hunt for a model that has more… and there aren’t a lot of options in this price range.
Note that while some of the promotional images of this tablet show a keyboard, it’s not included in the sale price. The X3 Plus does have a built-in kickstand though, which should make it relatively easy to use with any Bluetooth or USB keyboard and not just an official keyboard cover.
Teclast also recently launched a higher-performance 11.6 inch Windows tablet called the Teclast X3 Pro. That model has a similar display, but features a Core M3 Skylake processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
But with a price of around $550, the Teclast X3 Pro is also more expensive than the X3 Plus.
The new Chuwi Hi13 ist another Surface clone: The same big (13,5!) sharp 3000×2000 display but unfortunately nothing more, only an Apollo Lake N3460 cpu (better than Atom slower than Core i) with 4+64Gb. But the starting price is under $ 400.

Waiting for 13.5 inch 3000×2000 with 4GB RAM and good stylus to buy anything.
just grab the lowest end surface 4 like I did. 2736×1824 is pretty damn close and don’t bother with a keyboard. its an awesome second computer. It’ll be pretty close to the 550 they want for the core M version of this.
1. The “active stylus” mentions a “clear plastic disk” – it’s not active, its capacitive Adonit-type design.
2. Ports? AliExpress shows it with a barrel plug charger – so much for USB-C hopes.
