A few days back we had some early leaked press images of a 2-in-1 from Chuwi to share with you, today Chuwi have confirmed the name of the device along with the final specifications.

The Chuwi Hibook will launch in April and as the name suggests its a laptop style device which can be used with a detachable keyboard as a laptop or without as a touch screen tablet.

We had already spotted a few ports and plugs in the original images, now Chuwi has confirmed that the tablet has a Type C port (with a transfer speed of 10Gbps), 1 x micro USB, 1 x Mrico HDMI, 1 x micro SD card slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Chuwi Hibook will be slightly smaller than the Hi12, measuring in at 262 x 167.5 x 8.5mm with a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080, 16:9 display, but retains Windows 10 and an Intel chipset out of the box.

The processor chosen for the Hibook is a X5-Z8300 8th gen chipset. The CPU has 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory to play about with, and if Windows isn’t your OS of choice then Chuwi are working on an Android 5.1 install for the tablet coming soon.

Final details include a 5 mega-pixel main camera, 2 mega-pixel front, WIFI 802.11b/g/n and a 6600mAh battery.

    2016, the year of the netbook. It’s like 2010 all over again. $300 worth computers that are hardly useful even for the simplest things… Better give $300 more and buy a decent computer…

      Yeah because tablets and computers serve the same purpose.

      Sometimes it’s good to turn on the brain before posting, not everyone is a basement dweller.

        As a tablet it’s even worse, have you tried to run Windows Store apps? Thankfully most people use this as a low end laptop (which is still better than a windows store tablet). A device is what it is used for. Look at the picture, it’s a laptop… if calling it a tablet let’s you sleep at night be my guest, windows machines used in desktop mode are laptops though…

        BTW a tablet *is* a computer (as is a laptop). Be careful with that language of yours though, it will get you reported, just a friendly advice.

      We’d be more than happy to accept the $300 you’re gonna give us to buy a better computer.

        It’s not that you have to buy a better computer, merely that an atom computer is only capable for so little. Try photoshop or light gaming with an atom and you’d feel returning in 2006 … the difference is so big to its bigger brother (especially since we’re talking here about the single channel variant) that you could as well give $300 more (to buy the older model) and still be thought as frugal.

        Point is that those “ultra cheap” computers are actually very expensive given how little they can achieve.

        Like netbooks before them I don’t think that they serve any purpose other than parting people’s from their cash. I don’t know any netbook owner using his netbook for more than a year, I see that happening with those atom products too, they ride on a fad that it should die…

    X5-Z8300…umm, too bad, they missed the train : X7-Z8700 is gonna be the chip of this year, imo.

    If this chap is aimed at the 2-in-1 market then surely the minimum size should be 12″ or am I being unreasonable?

    64GB for windows 10 is not enough for office work.

    Data will grow and using MMC is awfully slow.
    They should use normal 2.5 SSD that we can replace ourselves to a bigger one if needed. Then we can format our own windows 10 if necessary.

    The rest of the spec is just ok, probably enough for simple office work (simple browsing, open file sharing, open excel, docx, PDF, etc) , but obviously not for heavy gaming as the onboard GPU don’t have enough juice.
