CHUWI AeroBook is the newest planned product from this famous chinese brand they have decided once again to go with it the crowdfunding way through the Indiegogo platform. And judging by the current status of the campaign it was a good idea, because already raised over 175.000 dollars and exceed 585 % of the original goal. That allows them to add some perks for free for all the supporting backers without raising the price.
The first major added perk is the addition of the full function USB Type-C port to the notebook, meaning you can use it either for charging, audio/video transmission or data transmission. It’s a nice example of listening to the community, because that has been the number one demand from the fans. There is also another stretch goal in the pipeline and if the number of backers will reach 600, then they will add for free 128 GB SSD drive for it. Maybe join up to help with that ?
