The 12.2-inch Surface Pro lookalike ships with the brand new Kaby Lake Core m3-7Y30 CPU, WUXGA touchscreen, 8 GB of RAM, and USB Type-C all for less than the price of the lowest-end Surface Pro 4.

The Surface Pro tablets are some of the best Windows tablets by far even according to our own Top 10 list. Thus, it's no surprise that Chinese imitators have already jumped on the bandwagon with designs and features seemingly lifted directly from Microsoft.

The Teclast TBook X5 Pro is one such Windows 10 tablet with its kickstand, angled detachable keyboard, and clean-cut bezels that look all too familiar. Though users may be quick to dismiss the tablet as a knockoff at first glance, its core specifications are actually quite respectable:

  • 12.2-inch 1920 x 1200 16:10 touchscreen
  • Intel Kaby Lake Core m3-7Y30 CPU
  • Integrated HD Graphics 615 GPU
  • 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • 256 GB internal SSD
  • 5 MP rear w/ auto-focus + 2 MP front cameras
  • Dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Micro-HDMI, USB Type-C, USB Type-A, SD reader
  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 29.9 x 20.2 x 0.8 cm
  • 0.911 kg

The Y-series Kaby Lake processor suggests a fan-less design not unlike the low-end Surface Pro 4 tablet, though it seems unlikely that the TBook X5 Pro will include any WWAN or SIM functionality or faster U-class CPU options.

The Teclast X5 Pro is expected to sell for around $620 USD or hundreds less than the Surface Pro 4. To take another page from Microsoft, the magnetic detachable keyboard dock will be sold separately as well.

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.
