Chuwi HiBook 2-in-1 first images

chuwi hi book

Chuwi are well and truly on the Windows 10 train with yet another device set to launch by April. Here are the first images of the Chuwi HiBook.

So far we only have these images to work with, plus a release date of April 2016 (probably). We’re not sure on the size of the specs of the Chuwi HiBook, but going through the images we can learn a thing or too.

First of all this is a 2-1n-1 device and can either be used as a touch screen tablet, or docked in to a physical keyboard. The keyboard will connect via pins, and even has it’s own USB port.

Judging from the size of the keyboard we would guess that the tablet is going to be around 11-inches or so.

On the tablet portion of the device we can make out Intel logos, cameras and a whole range of ports to accept USB Type C, SD cards, and it looks like it might even be possible to use a SIM card too.

As already stated we don’t know what the price will be, but we expect it to be somewhere between the $200-$250 mark, but this all depends on the final hardware specifications.

    I don’t think any of these 2 in 1 tablet type things coming out will be mature enough until later on in the year.

    I’m really glad that Chinese brands are moving (slowly) from the ‘Tablet’ market to the ‘Laptop’ market (kind of), with the help of Windows 10 actually (ChromeBooks were not really successful 🙁 ).
    I bought a Pipo W9S last December and it’s a cool device for the price/specs (Atom X5-8300).
    My last buy is the Onda oBook12 (Atom X7-8700)
    They are more ‘laptops’ than ‘2-in-1’: I really don’t trust those ‘removable’ keyboards (we are using a lot of Asus at work, and it’s…touchy)

      Chromebooks from China weren’t that successful because of the limited markets that Chromebooks are actually sold in, most people in the US will just by a Dell, HP or Samsung for the same money as that Chuwi. In the US chromebooks as a whole are doing very good, especially in the education segment.

        Yep, you’re probably true about Dell and others… Not a big success here tho 🙁
        And RemixOS will probably make things worst, who knows…

      How do you find the oBook – looks nice, but seems very expensive to me, for what it is (for £275gbp/$370usd I could buy an i3 powered laptop locally with a proper warranty, that I can actually install a Pro version of the OS on).

      Yeah i am 100% totally agree with you, for working we need something more sturdy and durable (problem free hardwares). Those removable keyboards are somehow don’t feel reliable for long term use. Especially if you need to constantly unplug and plug in back on daily basis.

      Again what i mean for long term use is around 3 years. The same normal hardware warranty on reputable brand like Lenovo, HP, etc

      Truth to be told I don’t much get those neo-netbooks. I find 13 inches and up better for work. Maybe because those are cheap? But so were netbooks. Atoms are too weak for serious work anyway…

      I think the market was better when $500 and below you could buy an excellent data consumption machine and from $500 and up you could get great data creation machines. Lately we seem to revert to a pre-2010 situation where you have cra*p laptops/netbooks and good laptops, it smells like lack of choice…
