Tag Archives: HiBook Pro

Since This Is The Tablet Server I Thought I Would Mention That The HiBook Pro Is Only $169!

Of course we all know that the first generation HiBook is a great tablet. After all I am running this server on it and after a year it still kicks ass! Of course I wish I bought this version, but I didn’t…crap!

However the HiBook Pro version is still available dirt cheap from Banggood.com for a mere $169! Of course I have no idea  how long this price will last, so I would  jump on it right now if you want a hi-res 10.1 inch tablet!

Obviously I am a bit biased but you can also do a search on this site to so see a few reviews.

That is all for now,

The HiBook News Delayed Edition: The HiBook is a Workhorse for Everything!

This edition was delayed because I was a bit busy this weekend but here we go. I have been using the hell out of the HiBook and even after a year the battery life is excellent and watching videos on it is a pleasure!

The last 6-7 days I have been using it as the web server here AND to watch videos on Kodi or TV channels such as CBS All Access and  a lot of YouTube stuff.

Now considering the fact that the web server is using up 1.8 GB RAM out of the 4 available I have a real appreciation for this device. Sure it is only a 10.1 inch tablet and doesn’t have a super hi-res screen, but 1920 x 1200 is perfectly adequate for movies when viewed from roughly 3 feet away. The battery can get me through about 2 movies or 4 TV episodes and still be sitting at 40% or more.

I can only imagine how good life could be with the HiBook Pro model which can still be found at sites like this. This is one of the best tablets I have ever owned and worth every penny I paid for it. If you are looking for a 10.1 inch tablet, this is the one to get!

The HiBook Pro features a larger battery and a Z8350 processor and a 2560 x 1600 fully laminated display. Bonus here it is on sale again, this time for $170!

That is all for today,

Tim

Chuwi HiBook Pro Still on Sale For Only $180!

The Chuwi HiBook is what this site is actually running on as I write this post. The HiBook Pro is the very same device with a bigger battery and an incredible display!

At a mere $180, this is one of the best deals you will find out there for a 10.1 inch tablet! The specs are listed below…

  • Windows 10 64 bit/Android 5.1
  • Intel Z8300 Processor
  • 2560 x 1600 display! (maybe the best display of any tablet in this class)
  • 4 GB Ram
  • 64 GB on-board eMMC storage
  • microSD support for up to 64 GB cards.
  • WiFi a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Battery: 8000 mAh

I certainly wish I had purchased this version over the standard HiBook, which is a great tablet, but the bigger battery and better display and low price make this one a winner! You can find it right here for about 1 more day, they only have 7 left.

That is all for this evening,

Tim

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

My Suggestions For Back To School PC Devices For 2017

We Test so you don’t have to!

We are about a month or so from back to school time and off to college time so these are my suggestions for great economical PC’s with Windows 10 or in 2 cases a Dual Boot Windows and Android. Remember most of these devices will be coming from China, so now is the time to order.

Now remember to choose your devices based on need and not  price or prettiness. Sure you can’t go wrong with a Samsung or Apple but you will probably spend far more than you should.

So let us get right to the list:

 

  • Number 1 on my list would be the Chuwi LapBook 12.3 with a whole slew of features. It has 6 gb of ram, it has a fantastic hi-res display and decent speakers and lots of ports. You can find the details and a great price on it at this link…right here. It is currently priced at $284 for 5 more days! You can find the video review on this one right here.
  • Chuwi Hi12 with a K480 keyboard

    Next on the list is the Chuwi Hi12. This server is running on it right now and it has a great display (2160 x 1440)  and amazing battery life. Yes you may want to get a keyboard for it, but I would go with a Bluetooth keyboard and a case/stand., which is what I use.  You can find it right here for under $210. Yes it is a dual boot!

  • Third on the list is the absolutely super Chuwi HiBook Pro. Now I normally run this site on the original HiBook which is great but the Pro model gets you the incredible  super hi- res 2560 x 1600 display and a Z8350 Intel processor. This is possibly the best 10.1 inch tablet you will find with the specs it has which like the Hi12 include 4 gb ram and the ability to use it with an attached keyboard or Bluetooth (smarter), and a dual boot system. The best price I know of is right here.
  • Jumper EZBOOK 3 PRO

    One more device here and that is the Jumper EzBook Pro 3 which gives us an Intel Apollo Lake N3450 Quad Core  CPU and a 1920 x 1080 display. It also can be easily upgraded with an SSD to expand storage. Check the post I wrote last month for the video on how this is done. This one is currently selling for $230 on Gearbest.

  • As always I would also suggest checking out Refurbees.com as they carry quite a few decent/fast/low cost laptops!

Incidentally this post was written in the Chuwi HiBook using the Logitech K480 keyboard and yes it is getting a day off road trip!

The HiBook on a Road Trip!

That appears to be all I have for now, but keep tabs on us, we here at HiBook Labs never quit searching for cool stuff!
