The Chuwi HiBook News: Edition 2

The HiBook in LogiTab mode

After having owned the Chuwi now for a bit over a week I am extremely happy with it’s performance and speed in both Windows 10 and Android.

So here I am using it again today to post on THE Tablet Test Server site using it as a very slick little notebook with my Bluetooth K480 Logitech keyboard and Logitech wireless mouse.

The only issue I have noticed was a tendency in Windows 10 for it to drop the connection, but ONLY when I am in my secret writing location having a meal. No idea why, but I still suspect that this restaurant has some wireless router issues, because they have all their connections running on the same channel, which is a huge mistake by their IT guy, but since that isn’t me, I just have to deal with it.

Other than that one minor issue I am extremely pleased with my purchase of this device and would easily recommend it to anyone shopping for a 10 inch class tablet.

I have done some testing in Android also and it appears to be very fast and plays games rather well. If you click here you can see a short video of video performance running N.O.V.A. 3. The game play was flawless although I got killed immediately as usual.

The HiBook News: This Edition, Finally Got The Server Moved!

Originally posted 2017-12-09 19:33:00.

Eventually this server will end up back on a tablet but for the foreseeable short term future I thought it best to get all the good info on here loaded up onto a full server since I am in the process of moving.

Of course that meant changing a few things such as the URL of the site which no longer contains the :8080 (port 8080) because it is no longer necessary. So if you end up getting an error on a search or from a link on Google, just remove the :8080 part of the address and all should be good.

Obviously there may be some occasional errors, but overall everything should work. I actually created the new database and edited it all on the Hi12 tablet which as usual saved the day. There really isn’t very much that it can’t do when needed.

So please remember to update your book marks and remove that :8080 from the address, thanks!

That is all for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: What To Do With An LT 2016u Netbook?

Gateway LT2016u

This video comes to us from none other than….US! I am sorry, the video is rather long and a bit rambling, but it does show that even some old equipment may be useful for something.

I actually got up very early this morning and brought along my trusty flash drive and got a newer version of Firefox to work on this ancient dinosaur! So we now have a functional Windows XP, (32 bit) spare PC for use as, uh, well, perhaps a web browsing device.

However with the 1024 x 600 display, we are not talking a great experience. The speakers also stink but if you plug in some external one the sound is excellent.

But hopefully folks will leave some comments on the YouTube channel suggesting to us what this thing might be good for. After all, a functional 10.1 inch notebook (yeah, I know, netbook), with WiFi, 3 full size USB 2.0 ports and reasonable battery life, along with a surprisingly huge hard drive (160 GB), is simply not something to toss in the trash.

So below you will find the video, sorry I sound tired but it was about 1 AM when I finally had reached my conclusions on what to do with this thing…

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

The HiBook News: OBS Studio Running on a HiBook? Can This Be Real?

Infinity Screen Captures?

Today I ran across a video on YouTube about running OBS Studio on an old, low powered tablet PC called a HiBook! I said to myself, well this can’t be true, but then I remember of course it is!

After all it was me who spent literally hours, to finally get OBS to work on High End Cheap Tech!

So after about a few dozen tries, I figured out how to get a decent screen capture (display capture) video on OBS on a supposedly obsolete/under-powered tablet.

The best part is, after shooting this in two segments, I edited the video on the very same, lowly X5 Z8300 Intel Atom tablet.  Yes, Openshot failed to add a transition at one point, but I’ll take success over disdain anytime!

The video below will mention how to remove background noise and show you that sometimes hardware decoding can get the job done even when you are saying to yourself, “hardware decoding, are you fuc&%$g kidding me?”

That’s all for now kiddies, maybe later I will try this again on the HI12? Leave a comment on YouTube if you want me to try it also!

Chuwi HiBook Pro On Sale Right Now For $179.99!

Originally posted 2017-07-18 17:52:26.

The HiBook Pro has a fantastic display!

As everyone who has visited this site should know, it normally runs on a Chuwi HiBook 10.1 inch tablet. My version is the original HiBook with the BIOS tweaked to boost memory speed.

This tablet has zero glitches, no shutdown issues and a great display at 1920 x 1200 display. Battery life is good for roughly 6+ hours of average use or 9-10 hrs of use as a server since the screen isn’t used.

Now all that being said I will get right to the point and that is the HiBook Pro is on sale for a mere $179.99 which is less than I paid for my version. Considering that it has the following improvements, it seems like a fantastic buy! Which is why it made it into my back to school recommendations post the other day!

  • 2560 x 1600 display
  • Z8350 CPU
  • 8000 mAh battery

It appears that this sale ends in roughly 33 hrs from now, July 18, 17:30 hrs, CDT  (you do the math). So don’t whine to me if you miss out, but I suggest a few minutes of research, check a few YouTube reviews and then go for it.

That is all for now,

Tim
