Chuwi Vi10 10.6-Inch Windows 10 Tablet

Chuwi Vi10 with Windows 10 is a fairly cheap Windows 10 tablet with Cherry Trail processor that has been available for a few days now at under $200:

The size of it is 10.6 inches, which is a size that we saw on the first two generations of the Microsoft Surface tablets, of which the Surface 2 Pro was the best of them.

The Chuwi Vi10 with Windows 10 is sold both as a standalone tablet without keyboard or as a 2-in-1, with a 10.6-inch screen featuring a now increasingly rare resolution of 1366 x 768. The Cherry Trail is a Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor, which means that it has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, while it also has 64GB of storage, but with additional card expansion supported only up to 32GB.

It does however have as much as 3x USB ports, both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, in addition to a HDMI port. And while it lacks the sensors you usually expect from high end models, it has a 2MP front camera, a 2MP rear camera, a battery capacity of 8000 mAh which ought to give it a 7 hour battery life, and it also has 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

So I guess we can say that this is a tablet with mixed specs. It is 8.8 mm thick which is nothing special, but a weight of 520 grams is pretty good. The tablet has a five point slot underneath for docking into a Chuwi Vi10 keyboard that costs just under $30.

This tablet or 2-in-1 deal could have been interesting for students on a budget, but it lacks just a little bit in specs to have the necessary appeal.

Together with the keyboard, it's just $79 away from the new Asus Transformer Book T100HA which offers a more solid performance, higher specs, and more attention to detail.
