The newest addition to the Chuwi extensive lineup has been showcased for the first time during the IFA 2017 and the Chuwi LapBook Air got some well deserved attention there. Now the latest Chuwi laptop model is ready for pre-orders and you can get a pretty good discount if you pull a trigger right away.
Chuwi LapBook Air is of course influenced heavily by the thin MacBook line as the name suggests after all. Even though it’s sporting a fairly large 14.1-inch FullHD screen it keeps the weight pretty much in check with 1.3 kgs and the profile with 6mm in the thinnest spot. Backlit keyboard is also something we craved in the previous models and while the hardware is not cutting edge, it looks very decent and usable with Apollo Lake Celeron N3450 with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD disk. The battery promises 33.7 Wh so nothing to scoff at either.
There is a chance to get a pretty juicy $50 discount coupon for subscribing for the pre-order, which would carve out a significant chunk from the official retail price of $429. Starting today they also fired up a giveaway event so you can check it all on the official website and try your luck.
