Chuwi has unveiled another laptop following the HeroBook Pro Plus release last week. The company has called its latest laptop the HeroBook Plus, which it equips with plenty of RAM and an outdated processor. The 15.6-inch laptop retails for US$439.

It has only been a week since Chuwi unveiled the HeroBook Pro+, which features a 3K and 14-inch display. However, the company has already announced another laptop - a 15.6-inch one this time. The Chuwi HeroBook Plus retails for US$439 on Amazon, although it is available on AliExpress at slightly higher prices depending on from where you ship the laptop.

The HeroBook Plus contains an odd combination of components, though. On the one hand, Chuwi has included a 15.6-inch display that operates at 1080p. The display also appears to have relatively thin bezels, but we have been caught out by Chuwi's marketing images before.

Additionally, Chuwi has included 12 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256 GB SSD, both respectable for a budget laptop like the HeroBook Plus. Moreover, its 38 Wh battery capacity is adequate, if a touch on the small side. Likewise, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI port, an RJ45 connection and a microSD card reader round out the I/O. All good so far, then.

On the other hand, Chuwi has equipped the HeroBook Plus with a Celeron J4125, a quad-core processor from Intel's Gemini Lake Refresh series. The Celeron J4125 is practically the same processor as the Celeron J4115 found in the Chuwi LarkBox, except with 200 MHz higher base and boost clock speeds.

Overall, the HeroBook Plus offers decent hardware on paper. We doubt that the machine will offer great performance, although we can only say so definitively once we have put it through its paces.
