Chuwi has unveiled the FreeBook, an Intel Jasper Lake-based laptop. The Chuwi FreeBook also has a 13.5-inch and 2K display, along with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. The FreeBook will be orderable later this month.

Chuwi has teased the FreeBook, a convertible laptop weighing 1.36 kg. Accordingly, the FreeBook has 360-degree hinges, which should provide a greater degree of versatility than most Chuwi laptops. As usual with Chuwi laptops, the company has equipped the FreeBook with a seemingly impressive display and an underpowered processor.

Specifically, the FreeBook has a 13.5-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. Chuwi claims that the display has a 2K native resolution, but it has not provided specifics for this. The inclusion of a stylus in a marketing render implies that the display supports touch input, too.

While that may sound promising, Chuwi has opted for the Celeron N5100, a quad-core processor based on Intel's Jasper Lake architecture. The Celeron N5100 may be a modern processor, but it compares woefully against much older Intel processors, such as the Core i5-8265U.

Chuwi complements the Celeron N5100 with 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a 256 GB SSD that achieves relatively slow read and write speeds. The device is rounded off with a USB Type-C port that Chuwi claims is 'fully featured'. The FreeBook will be orderable later this month through Chuwi's website. Pricing remains unknown at this stage, though.
