The Chuwi MiniBook X is the Chinese company’s new pocket notebook, updated with Intel Jasper Lake processors, 12/512GB of storage and a 10.8-inch 2K touch punch-hole display. It will go on sale very soon for $599.
Chuwi MiniBook X is a variant of the MiniBook (launched in 2019), optimized in design and updated in the data sheet. It will be available very soon on the market at a price of $599, but at the moment we have no information about availability in Europe.
Both adopt a convertible concept with a special 360-degree hinge, which allows you to flip the display under the keyboard to use the device as needed in tablet, notebook, tent and stand mode. However, if the first generation was based on Intel Celeron N4100 (Gemini Lake) or Core m3-8100Y (Amber Lake-Y) processors and featured an 8-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display, the new Chuwi MiniBook X offers a newer chip and a larger display.
On board, in fact, we find a quad-core Intel Celeron N5100 (Jasper Lake) at 10nm with a base frequency of 1.1GHz (up to 2.8GHz), TDP of 6W and integrated graphics Intel UHD 350-800MHz, but above all a large 10.8-inch 2K (2560 x 1600 pixels) touch display in 16:10, with support for pen input. The amount of memory also increases, with 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 512GB of SATA SSD space.
The larger display allowed for the ability to integrate a true touchpad under the keyboard, instead of the optical touch sensor in the center of the space bar, but it also made the chassis a bit bulky than the previous model. The MiniBook X measures 243 x 167 x 17.7 mm and weighs about 900 grams, but has thinner bezels around the screen and a 5MP front-facing camera in the punch-hole that together contribute to the 90% screen-to-body ratio. The Chuwi MiniBook X integrates a USB Type-C port for 45-watt USB PD 2.0 charging and/or data and video transfer support.
