Chuwi CoreBook X relaunched with the processor from an old MacBook Pro 13
Chuwi has unveiled another CoreBook X, just six months after it launched the first model. Unsurprisingly, the new model retains its predecessor's looks, which include a 3:2 aspect ratio display. There are a few internal changes, though.
For example, Chuwi has exchanged the Intel Core i5-7267U for a Core i5-8259U, found in the 2018 edition of the MacBook Pro 13. While the Coffee Lake CPU is a few generations old now, it still holds up well against modern processors like the Core i5-1135G7.
Chuwi has not confirmed how much RAM or storage the new CoreBook X has, although we would not be surprised if it was 16 GB of the former and 256 GB of the latter, again. Additionally, the new CoreBook X has a USB 3.0 Type-A port, a USB Type-C port, a DC input, a microSD card slot and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
There is also a 46.2 Wh battery, while its 3:2 and 14-inch display runs natively at 2,160 x 1,440 pixels. Chuwi will begin selling the new CoreBook X for US$539 on June 2.
