Reviews for the Chuwi Surbook

60% Chuwi SurBook Review
Source: Slashgear English
Unfortunately, the SurBook now suffers from a sort of middle child problem. Last month, Chuwi announced the SurBook Mini which brings all of that to a smaller size. A Surface 4, if you will. And now it also has the CoreBook, which, finally, isn’t a name you’d be associating with an existing line. You could call it the SurBook 2, if you want, and its Core M processor and revamped design might make you think twice about investing in a plain not-so-old SurBook at this point in time.

The SurBook is an interesting product pitched at those who would’ve wanted a Surface 3 with some Surface Pro characteristics. Chuwi delivers admirably here, but there are some flaws that need to be addressed.

80% Chuwi SurBook hands-on: A high-performing Surface clone

All in all, I loved testing this tablet, which, like the Hi13, performs as well as my laptop. And at just over half of the cost of its competitors, what's not to like.

Comment

Intel HD Graphics 500: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
N3450: Frugal quad-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive notebook. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.2 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Atom generation, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.3":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.043 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


72.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
