Reviews for the Chuwi CoreBook X Pro

74.8% Chuwi CoreBook X Pro laptop review: 120 Hz display for cheap | Notebookcheck
The CoreBook X Pro is the least expensive 15.6-inch laptop you can find with a 120 Hz panel. The catch, however, is you'll have to deal with substantial cut corners to major aspects of the system.

79% Chuwi CoreBook XPro 15.5" Review: A Great 120Hz Laptop ... for Spreadsheets?
Source: Make Use Of English
Chuwi's design team built a laptop that successfully competes with large manufacturers. Unfortunately, the lack of a dedicated graphics card means its 120Hz display won't live up to its potential for gaming. But none of that is terrible, given its price. Unfortunately, what is terrible is that Chuwi requires you to pay ship-in costs to China on returns. But if you can stomach its warranty, Chuwi's CoreBook is the best laptop under $500 for productivity and for video playback. However, there are laptops for $750 and 800 which also have 120Hz displays and a discrete graphics card, which I would advise buying instead if it's within your budget.

Chuwi Corebook X Pro Review: Gaming Laptop For Just $500
Source: Awaqua English
After one week of testing the new model of the Chuwi Corebook X Pro gaming laptop, I was left with both positive and negative emotions. Of the advantages, the device stands out for the presence of good materials used. Also, the laptop case was well assembled and executed. In addition, I liked the performance of the processor, both in real life and in synthetic tests. You can also easily install additional RAM and built-in memory in the device. The backlit keyboard will definitely not be a superfluous feature, as well as the presence of a full-fledged SD card slot. I also liked the battery life with a good 70 Wh of capacity and fast charging. But the main disadvantage for me was the screen, since the color gamut was not the best in its class. Other than that, I didn’t really like the maximum screen brightness of 230 nits. The device also made a little noise under heavy loads and tasks. At the same time, the quality of sound and webcam did not have the best indicators.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655: Integrated graphics card (GT3e), which is used for some Coffee Lake-U CPUs (28 Watts).

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

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

i5-8259U: Coffee Lake based SoC (System on a Chip) for medium-sized notebooks. Integrates four CPU cores clocked at 2.3-3.8 GHz as well as an Iris Plus Graphics 655 GPU clocked at 300 - 1050 MHz with 128 MB eDRAM. Manufactured in a 14nm process. The TDP of 28 Watts is much higher than the regular ULV quad-cores at 15W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

76.9%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
