Chuwi is a Chinese tablet computer brand that is celebrating with a brand sale this week, making anything from 8-inch Windows tablets available from $79 to dual-OS and Android and Remix tablets cheaper, while they are simultaneously launching a new cheap FHD 15.6-inch Windows 10 laptop for $249:
The Chuwi tablet sales are for the Android, Windows, and Remix tablets Hi10 Plus, Hi10 Pro, Hi10, HiBook Pro 2, Hi12, Hi8 dual-OS tablet, VI10 Plus Remix tablet, Vi8, and eBook Stylus. Chuwi accessories like keyboards, keyboard covers, VI10 and Hi 12 pens, powerbanks, and car chargers are also on sale this week in October.
But the Chuwi tablet sale also coincides with the upcoming launch of the very cheap 15.6-inch Windows 10 laptop with Full HD display. And that’s the new Chuwi LapBook 15.6 that will be released globally on November 4 for right under $249: http://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_488238.html
Chuwi LapBook 15.6 runs Windows 10 Home, with a 15.6-inch screen that has a Full HD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution. The reason why it’s such a cheap full-size laptop is because it’s powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, a very popular tablet processor, but a rare find in laptops.
It has 4GB of DDR3L RAM, along with 64GB of storage with 128GB microSD card support. And with both a full-size USB 3.0 port, and full-size USB 2.0 port, you can connect external hard drives for even more storage on the go or at home.
This cheap 15.6-inch laptop also has a 10000 mAh battery capacity, which Chuwi says is good enough for a 7-8 hour battery life. The battery has support for 5V/3A quick charge.
Internet connection is established through 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi bands or Bluetooth 4.0. It doesn’t have an old school LAN jack though, but it’s possible to use USB to LAN jack converters should that be necessary. It has a HDMI port though so you can connect it to a TV or attach a second display.
Other Chuwi LapBook 15.6 specs include speakers and a 3.5mm audio combo jack, a 2MP front camera, narrow bezels, and of course a full-size keyboard with touchpad/trackpad.
Since this cheap laptop is powered by an Intel Atom “Cherry Trail” processor, it doesn’t need a large and heavy cooling unit, so it’s not particularly heavy for a 15.6-inch laptop, at 1860 grams.
