CHUWI has announced that it will be adding the option to upgrade to 16GB of RAM as rewards to its Indiegogo campaign for the Minibook. These SKUs will have the same Intel m3-8100Y SoC as the UMPC's current higher-end version. The first 50 of these are to cost US$10 more than their 8GB counterparts.

Update: The $10 RAM upgrades are no more.

The CHUWI Minibook has proved wildly popular on Indiegogo, for the amount it packs into an 8-inch netbook factor. It has SKUs with either the Celeron N4100 or Core m3-8100Y Intel processors and 8GB of RAM. For those to whom this is not enough memory, however, CHUWI has just announced another extension to its campaign.

It consists of the option to upgrade an m3-8100Y SKU to 16GB of RAM. CHUWI has indicated that there will be a total of 350 units of these new versions. The first 50 will apparently add $10 more to the price of an extant 8GB model reward; the next 100 pieces will be $20 more, and the remaining 200 will cost an additional $30.

This may be CHUWI's way of celebrating the fact that its campaign has now attained over US$300,000 in backing, or 1288% of its flexible goal (correct at time of writing). The 16GB unit tiers are to go online at 12:00 UTC on June 26, 2019 - so if you want one, get clicking!

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
