It’s been a long time coming, but the 11.6-inch Chuwi UBook powered by a quad-core Intel “Gemini Lake” N4100 processor is taking orders for $329:
The specs are good for the price, as it also has 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. So all in all the most hardware for the money in the mid-sized Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet space.
Full specs list includes an 11.6-inch screen with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 and 1024 pressure level sensitive pen support for the H3 pen, with a built-in kickstand on the back of the tablet, a Surface type of backlit keyboard, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, a 3500 mAh battery, 0.8 watt stereo speakers, a 2MP front camera, and a 5MP rear camera.
Ports on this tablet includes 2x full-size USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB C port, a micro-HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio combo slot, a charge/power port, and a microSD card slot with support for memory cards up to 128GB.
Chuwi UBook is 9mm thick and weighs 760 grams. So apart from a battery that could have been larger, this is in every other respect a lot of tablet for the price.
Windows tablets powered by a N4100 processor typically get average Geekbench 4 benchmark scores of 1800 in single-core and 5370 in multi-core scores. But with SSD storage, even more bottlenecks are removed, so the Chuwi UBook should perform over average for tablets with this processor.
