The Chuwi SurBook is one of those products that has grabbed the attention of foreign media due to an interesting and nimble marketing move. A few months back the company has launched a 2-in-1 tablet PC on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. Though the company didn’t need money to make this device, it has gathered more than $1 million. Thanks to this move, the Chuwi SurBook became popular in a few days. Thus while many tablet makers from China spend millions to become known in other markets, Chuwi did it with no effort. Well, we have already understood this company knows what to do when it comes to promotion. But what about the products themselves? Are they worthy to pay attention? Moreover, are they worthy to be compared with top brands? Those who are unfamiliar with Chuwi may think this is a regular Chinese manufacturer copying western brands. But those who have seen even one product carrying this brand, know what awesome devices it designs. The Chuwi SurBook is no exception. We have already reviewed this 2 in 1 tablet. Now we are coming in with a great deal that offers the SurBook for only $409.99 if applying the coupon (code: SurBookGB).
The price tag it comes at isn’t as low as many may think. But be sure the Chuwi SurBook deserves it. This tablet PC comes with a 12.3-inch 2K screen, Intel Celeron N3450 chip paired with a 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of internal memory, 2 and 5MP cameras on the front and back, respectively, 10.000mAh battery, a number of interfaces and ports, and Windows 10 out of the box.
I would like to say the selling point of the Chuwi SurBook is the appearance, but it’ll be more correctly to say there is only one feature we can complain about – the SoC. The latter doesn’t allow us to put the Chuwi SurBook into the category of high-end models. So, it’s senseless to compare it with the Surface Pro. But if you wish you can think of it as a cheap version of Microsoft’s product.
