The early bird price will be available to only the first few hundred backers before prices go up to the ~$350 USD range for the entry-level SKU. Even so, the 2-in-1 will pack impressive features compared to the pricier Surface Pro 4 alternative.

Announced earlier this year in April, Chuwi is finally ready to launch its direct competitor to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 with the upcoming all-metal SurBook. The tablet even includes a similar built-in rear kickstand that can be opened up to 125 degrees for easier use. Core specifications include:

  • 12.3-inch 2K resolution (2736 x 1824) touchscreen
  • 3:2 display aspect ratio, 450 nit brightness
  • 2.2 GHz Intel Celeron N3450 processor
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 64/128 GB internal storage
  • Dual-band 802.11ac WLAN
  • USB Type-C, 2x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 10000 mAh internal battery

The catch, however, is that the Chinese manufacturer will first need to raise at least $30000 USD through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. The entry-level model can be had for $299 USD while the $349+ SKUs will include the detachable keyboard and active stylus pen with double the internal storage space. SKUs are limited to 200 units each, so Chuwi is encouraging backers to purchase sooner rather than later or else prices will go up once a certain minimum is reached.

We recommend checking out the official Indiegogo page below for more details and technical specifications on the SurBook project.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
