Today we are discussing the Chuwi UBook X, a new convertible computer that arrives with a touchscreen and Windows 10 Home which can be a very useful device. Any student or employee who suddenly works from home may need such a solution. So let’s see what this tablet has to offer in our full Chuwi laptop review.
The Design and Display
When you look at this device, it looks like a more expensive product. The entire external unit is actually made of aluminum, as is the base. Therefore, contrary to what one might think, the latter component is quite stable. However, in our case, there is no integrated keyboard, which would certainly make the design much more stable. In terms of dimensions, it weighs 292.19 x 207.89 x 9 mm and weighs 780 grams.
If we take a closer look at where all the ports are in terms of connectivity, we find a USB Type-C input, a USB-A 3.0 port, a microHD input, and the power slot on the right. On the other hand, there is a 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD input.
On the upper profile, there is an on/off button and volume control, while on the front frame, between the windshield and the aluminum body are two microphones. When we opened the mount on the back, we noticed that there were two speakers, one on the left and one on the right. There are also front and rear cameras. At the bottom, we finally have the connection for the physical keyboard.
In contrast to many other competing products, it is housed in a 12″ IPS display with a resolution of 2K (2160 x 1440 pixels), 340 cd/m². What’s even more surprising though is the 3:2 form factor, which really makes it a lot easier to use too. used vertically and always shows a fairly large area.
Hardware and Performance
This Chuwi UBook X has an Intel Celeron N4100 chipset, which is a 14nm quad-core processor with a base clock frequency of 1.1 GHz and Turbo Boost up to 2.4 GHz. This decision is not premature and inevitably has an impact on productivity. Just for better understanding: this processor, the eighth generation of Gemini Lake, was launched in the third quarter of 2017. However, it all comes with 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 256GB of SSD storage, not to mention the presence of Windows 10.
All graphics are controlled by an Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU with a maximum clock rate of 700 MHz.
Audio and Connectivity
In this product, you will find Dual Band ac Wi-Fi, with which I have always managed to navigate with ease even in the most critical parts of the house. There’s also Bluetooth 5.0, OTG support and a headphone audio jack.
This product has only two speakers and is located on either side of the computer, just below the stand.
There is a 5000 mAh battery under the case. It’s not huge, but it still allows you to stay at a good level and ensures adequate autonomy. Due to the constant use of the device, I spent almost 6 hours of continuous operation on just Netflix, a few Excel worksheets and a little more. It takes about 3 hours to move from 10% to 100%.
Overall, the Chuwi ubook x is a wonderful tablet that can meet your basic computing needs, it is fast and has good storage capacity. On Banggood, this tablet cost $399.99 and it is very durable.
