79.8% Chuwi AeroBook (2019) Laptop Review: A crowdfunded compact Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Chuwi's latest laptop is the product of a successful IndieGoGo campaign. While the package is wrapped in a nice shell, the AeroBook ultimately falls short of other compact notebooks. This is largely in part to its outdated 6th-generation Core m3 CPU.
The Chuwi AeroBook Review: One Small Step For Chuwi
Source: AnandTech English
If you need great battery life, this Chuwi AeroBook is not for you. But for a general purpose laptop, it offers a great design, reasonable performance, and as much RAM and SSD storage as machines that cost quite a bit more. So when you factor that in, the $499 MSRP is still rather attractive. If Chuwi is going to continue to try and compete in higher brackets, they will need to address some of their faults, but at the $500 range, the Chuwi AeroBook still offers a lot for the price.

73.2% 6th Gen Intel Skylake-U in 2020: Chuwi AeroBook Plus 4K Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
One way to cut manufacturing costs is to use older components. So, what happens when you use a processor that's nearly five years old? For $600 to $700 USD, results aren't half bad.

Note this is a pre-release loan unit I reviewed, the touchpad issue will be fixed in the final version, the lowest screen brightness will be lowered, Chuwi will also post a guide on how to boot Linux and correct battery capacity will be shown in the final model I've been told.

The AeroBook Pro is the 2020 refresh designed to replace the 2019 AeroBook. Despite what the name may suggest, however, both performance and the chassis remain almost exactly the same for no tangible year-over-year advantages.

Chuwi:


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 515: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on Core-m-CPUs of the Skylake generation (4,5 W TDP).

Intel UHD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Amber Lake Y-series processors (5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with up to 1000 MHz depending on the CPU Model.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Graphics 550: Integrated GPU (GT3e) with 48 EUs and dedicated eDRAM memory found on some Skylake CPU models (28 W series).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core m3:

6Y30: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for tablets and 2-in-1 notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 515 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

m3-8100Y: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Amber Lake architecture which is basically a Kaby Lake chip produced in the  improved 14nm+ process (no 14nm++) with higher clock speeds and 5 Watt TDP. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.1-3.4 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter.

Intel Core i5:

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


77.53%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
