At this price range, yes even with the shipping, the Chuwi LapBook looks like a good value for money device. For now you need to buy it from an international e-commerce player, but Chuwi is in talks Indian e-tailers to bring the device here directly. If you are looking for a good notebook that helps you consume and create content, then the LapBook seems like a good buy, though with an element of risk attached to it.

In closing, I have to admit that the last thing I thought I’d be doing is writing a recommendation of this particular laptop. These Chinese “grey market” electronics are always tough to gauge, and jumping for one is usually a lesson in severe disappointment. It’s like buying the generic version of your favorite cereal; most of the time you just wished you’d have bought the name you recognized. Chuwi is proving itself to be different, and (trackpad woes aside) the new Lapbook is a pretty fantastic example of that. If you’re looking for a full-fledged Windows 10 notebook to carry out basic to intermediate tasks and don’t want to wreck your wallet, it’s a solid option. The LapBook 14.1 retails for around $299, though you can find it for as cheap as $239. Even at that higher price point it’s a pretty good deal, and if you manage to snag it for less than that it’s just icing on the cake.

Chuwi already make a number of other devices, mostly 2-in-1s, and their next release, the Hi13 looks set to eclipse everything we've seen before. But for now, as a ‘value proposition' it demonstrates everything that's great about buying grey.

Chuwi's LapBook is not the fastest laptop you can buy by any stretch of the mind, but it is both capable for most daily tasks and more up to the job than most cheap Windows 10 laptops. The full-HD screen and full-size keyboard are highlights, as is the incredibly quick startup, but you'll want a proper mouse to get around that awful trackpad. Recommended for those looking for a usable Windows 10 laptop at an attractive price.

The LapBook 14.1 is a great option for the money. It has impressive build quality, performs well, has good battery life, and a clean Windows 10 setup. Initially, I mentioned that it retails for $299.99, but if you want to get it you can find it for much less. What's not to like?
