Reviews for the Chuwi UBook Pro
The UBook Pro offers high-end looks with low-end performance for a mid-range price. If you can get past the slow Core m3 processor, then you'll find the super-bright 12.3-inch display and three USB ports quite useful when compared to the dimmer and pricier Surface Pro.

The Chuwi Ubook Pro is a compelling alternative to the far more expensive Microsoft Surface Pro 7. It doesn’t offer all of the features of the latter but at half the price with a keyboard and a stylus, it has a lot going for it.

Intel UHD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Amber Lake Y-series processors (5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with up to 1000 MHz depending on the CPU Model.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
m3-8100Y: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Amber Lake architecture which is basically a Kaby Lake chip produced in the improved 14nm+ process (no 14nm++) with higher clock speeds and 5 Watt TDP. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.1-3.4 GHz with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.
The same applies to tablets in this size range.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
70.03%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
