Chuwi is a popular name in China, and their affordable convertibles are starting to become well-known outside Asia as well. The two SurBook slates that have been spotted at the Hong Kong Global Sources Fair are similar to the Microsoft Surface in terms of design but are expected to hit the market carrying a far lower price tag.

The SurBook and SurBook mini feature an Apollo Lake processor, namely the Intel Celeron N3450. Next to this quad-core chip, they also come with 6 GB RAM. There are also some differences:

  • Chuwi SurBook - 12.3-inch with 2,736X1,824 pixels, 128 GB eMMC 5.0 storage, USB Type-C
  • Chuwi SurBook mini - 10.5-inch with 2,560X1,600 pixels, 64 GB eMMC 5.0 storage

Leaving aside the differences mentioned above, there are a lot of common connectivity features (WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, mini HDMI, 3.5 mm audio jack), as well as the same 2 MP and 5 MP cameras on the front and back.

Chuwi plans to launch the SurBook and SurBook mini in two variants each, one loaded with Windows 10 and the other with Linux, most likely Ubuntu. The price and launch date are not known yet, but we expect these two affordable convertibles to surface in a crowdfunding campaign next month.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
