Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing, The Chuwi SurBook Mini Full Review

Originally posted 2018-01-30 17:56:03.

This evening’s video comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the Chuwi SurBook Mini tablet PC.

This is a 10.8 inch tablet with the following specs:

  • Display- fully laminated, 1920 x1280
  • Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake CPU
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 64 GB on-board eMMC 5.1
  • microSD slot, supports up to 128 GB
  • 2 full size USB 3.0 ports
  • 1 USB-C 3.0 port
  • option keyboard/cover
  • stylus support, but very low end
  • 8000 mAh battery

For me this one isn’t a whole lot better than my little Chuwi HiBook. Sure, it has the better processor, but  the display isn’t much better, 1920 x 1200 versus 1920 x 1280.  If you can still find a HiBook or HiBook Pro, buy it!

However I digress a bit, considering the point of this post is to share the video and let you decide!

So let us get right to the video.

This product is currently available at Gearbest for $274.

That is all for now,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Chuwi SurBook Mini 2 in 1 Tablet/Notebook

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the details on the Chuwi SurBook Mini Tablet/Notebook 2 in 1 device. The device is the smaller of the 2 SurBooks available from Chuwi and has some good and not so good features.

Below are the basic specs:

  • Intel Celeron N3450 Processor
  • 4 GB DDR3 RAM
  • microSD Slot
  • USB-C charging/data port
  • 2 USB full size ports
  • 64 GB eMMC 5.1 spec on-board storage
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 10.8 inch 1920 x 1080 fully laminated IPS display

The specs are okay, but here is my take on this. Sure it is a 2 in 1, but there are quite a few better ones than this one at a similar price point. Unless you absolutely use a 2 in 1 you can make do with a Bluetooth keyboard and a tablet of any size.

The storage is horrible, they could easily have provided a way to use an M2242 SSD drive for some real storage capacity. Yes, the microSD slot will help a lot, but at the expense of speed.

In this same price range you could probably find a notebook like the LapBook Air and get more storage, more RAM and a back-lit keyboard. Yes, you would forgo the touch screen and tablet use, but if you are going to primarily use it as a laptop, who cares?

However…if you need a nice basic 2 in 1 tablet PC, this might be just perfect for you. You can find it at this link for about $327 and they have a deal on the the keyboard also.

So let us get right to that video where you can see this thing in action and marvel at the quality of Andrew’s videos. Make sure you subscribe to his channel if you want super honest reviews.

Another Video Worth Sharing: The Chuwi SurBook Mini 2 in 1 Tablet PC

Tonight’s first video comes to us from Chris over at Techtablets and covers the Chuwi SurBook Mini, which is a 10.1 inch Tablet with available keyboard and a decent display.

This video pretty much covers initial impressions but is certainly worth watching.

The SurBook Mini has a few shortcomings and some positives also.

So I am not going to spend a great deal of time with all the specs, since they are covered in the video.

This product is available at Gearbest for $249.

That is all for now,

Tim
