Chuwi HiBook Pro On Sale Right Now For $179.99!

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

The HiBook and Logitech Keyboard

For the second week in a row the Chuwi along with the Logitech K480 keyboard has become  my go to notebook! To put it simply, it does everything my Asus X553SA Notebook does but with a brighter screen and faster response times.

This is truly one of the best little tablet notebook combinations I have ever owned and tested. It does everything well.

I do however recommend buying the HiBook Pro version because it has better resolution along with a larger battery. Gearbest has it at a very reasonable price.

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…

Tonight’s First Video Worth Sharing: The Chuwi Hi9 Air 10.1 Inch Tablet

This short unboxing and review comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the Hi9 Air which is supposedly a gaming tablet.

It has a great screen resolution, although not as bright as the mfg claims and it sports a decent 8000 mAh battery, but it does have its flaws.

As far as I am concerned, my HiBook is just as good as this device, but, I don’t play games, so that makes me rather biased. Hence the reason I am sharing this with you folks who do play games and are concerned with this info.

Chris is going to be the next reviewer I talk about on our new channel, because of his ability to engage the audience, nit-pick the living crap out of a device, whether it be a smartphone, tablet, notebook or a mini PC.

So without further into, let us proceed at once to that video! As always, make sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel!

A Very Decent Tablet With a Pretty Good Price! Lenovo Tab 4 Plus (video)

The Lenovo Tab 4 Plus is a pretty decent tablet, especially considering the current price of only $254 with Wifi and LTE ! Incidentally the specs on the Amazon site are not even close to correct.

It offers a decent screen resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels, Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 processor, Android 7.1 and a promised 20 hours of battery life (although I would realistically expect closer to 10 hours).

It also has microSD expansion for more storage and looks pretty darn nice!

This is perfect for media consumption or as a kids tablet. The price is right and Lenovo puts out some realy good tech!

Here is a pretty good short unbox/mini review I found on it today…

That is all I have at this time,

Tim
