Chuwi has released yet another laptop with a seemingly good display and an underpowered processor. The company has equipped the HeroBook Pro+ with a 13.3-inch display that runs natively at 3K (3,200 x 1,800) in a 16:9 aspect ratio. Admittedly, that means that the HeroBook Pro+ has a much higher resolution display than its contemporaries. However, thick bezels also surround the screen, pushing its dimensions to 330 x 220.8 mm. Additionally, the HeroBook Pro+ is 18.5 mm thick, although it only weighs 1.16 kg.
Inside, Chuwi has installed an Intel Celeron J3455, a four-year-old processor that lacked power at release. The Celeron J3455 integrates an HD Graphics 500 GPU clocked at 750 MHz, while its four cores can reach 2.3 GHz on a 6 W TDP. Chuwi has complemented the Celeron J3455 with 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 128 GB of eMMC flash storage. Sadly, there is no way to add more storage other than with a microSD card.
Moreover, the HeroBook Pro+ also has a 38 Wh battery, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a mini HDMI output and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Chuwi pre-installs Windows 10 Home on the HeroBook Pro+ too. Currently, the machine can be purchased from Chuwi for US$269. It is only available in one configuration and one colour.
