We have already covered the announcement for the tiny pocket laptop CHUWI MiniBook and the upcoming plans to send it to crowdfunding waters via Indiegogo. Today we got a confirmation, that the device will get two separate versions with different processors, one with Core M3-8100Y and one with the much weaker Celeron N4100. And the makers made for us a nice performance comparison with some benchmarks and tests so take a look in the gallery below.
CHUWI MiniBook will be sporting just an 8-inch IPS touchscreen, but it will be fully adjustable with 360-degree rotation similar to the YOGA models so will be usable in both laptop/tablet mode. Inside we will find the latest Intel Core M3-8100Y / Celeron N4100 processor supported by 8 GB LPDDR4 RAM and 128 GB eMMC memory, but with a free M.2 SSD NVMe slot it would be a shame to keep it empty. And despite the tiny size the makers managed to force in ultra-narrow border full sized keyboard. The battery will be also pretty impressive with 26,6Wh capacity and charging through fully functional USB Type-C port will be fast with PD 2.0 fast charging.
The results are more or less in line with the expectations and there are no real suprises. The only outstanding interesting point is the speed of the M.2 slot when using the super fast NVMe SSD disks, so should be a priority to get it. The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the CHUWI MiniBook should theoretically start at the end of June, but you can already sign-up on CHUWI’s website to get all the info and more importantly the 25 % early bird discount.
