The two Chinese brands Chuwi and Teclast appear to be competitors. Some time ago, Teclast released a crowdfunding notebook called Ubook, which was loved by many people. Today, Chuwi is not far behind, and seems to feel unprecedented pressure. So, now Chuwi is about to launch a fundraiser on the Indiegogo’s collective financing site to launch a Chuwi Aerobook notebook.
The manufacturer advertises the device as the most affordable frameless laptop, but this is normal marketing, as the frames of the screen is quite noticeable, especially from below. On the sides and on top of the frame width is about 5 mm. The display occupies about 80 % of the area of the top panel of the laptop.
The notebook is equipped with an Intel Core M3 processor that runs at up to 2.2 GHz and 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB solid state drive. The display resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels and its diagonal is 13.3 inches.
The battery capacity is 38 watt-hours. Declared battery life of up to eight hours per battery charge. It weighs approximately 1.25 kg of laptop weight. The notebook is equipped with two USB 3.0 connectors, one USBC, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and HDMI, which supports output of up to 4K resolution. The price of the device is $500, but the first customers will be able to buy it for $439.99.
For this pro e and the added giveaways, this config I very good. The only point I would like to raise is the ability to have it cone in more configurable specifications, like more storage and more ram if we want. I know this would increase the cost but I think it's worth it. This won't stop me from getting one now though.
Chuwi declared an 8hrs battery life on this device and that not bad for daily use but one can expect a drop in that duration once heavy use commences, this is to be expected. I'm just glad that they are building better laptops, the only thing that's left is to give us multiple options in terms of config.
Normally I would not look at the Chinese manufacturing market for a laptop but with the rising cost of main stream builders, it seems to be the only alternative choice. Hoping that this is released soon and its beats spending over $1000 on other more popular brands.
"Some time ago, Teclast released a crowdfunding notebook called Ubook" this statement is incorrect. I followed the link and it was the Chuwi Ubook, not Teclast. Also, "The notebook is equipped with two USB 3.0 connectors, one USBC" there is no USBC port on the device from what I can see in the images or spec sheet.
This looks like a windows version of a mac air and that's a good thing. Also its a lot cheaper
