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 $299 with coupon code Chuwi123. 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 $240. 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 $280 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!

PSA: Gearbest Offering Both the HiBook Pro and Hi12 Tablets at Excellent Prices

If you have been waiting for some sales to get a hold of a Chuwi HiBook Pro or a Chuwi Hi12, today is your day! Gearbest is offering up both of these tablets at excellent prices!

The HiBook Pro model is available for $184 and the Hi12 for a mere $219! The HiBook sale ends in roughly 15 hrs and the Hi12 is available for 7 more days but only 100 units are available.

Lets put this in perspective, sure the new Chuwi  LapBook 12.3 can be found at a pretty good price also and is slightly larger than either of the aforementioned tablets and of course has a keyboard and SSD expansion capability.  But you would be looking at roughly $300-$400 if you find it on flash sale.

On the other hand you could get both the HiBook Pro and the Hi12 for $403, if you needed a 10.1 inch and a 12 inch device. Or you could purchase either one singly and have a ton of cash left for a keyboard/mouse/wireless ac adapter/microSD card.

Advantages and disadvantages:

  • The LapBook has a faster CPU, a slightly better display and more RAM.
  • The HiBook and Hi12 both have stunning displays and can store a lot of files with a microSD card. I personally have 39 GB free on my 64 GB microSD card.
  • The LapBook has a keyboard built in.
  • The HiBook and Hi12 both work with my LogiTech K480 keyboard or any other Bluetooth keyboard.
  • The LapBook is better for gaming!
  • No response to that except that I outgrew gaming when I became an adult…although the HiBook plays N.O.V.A. 3 quite well in Android…
  • The LapBook has decent battery life.
  • The Chuwi Hi12 will run all damned day, doing spreadsheets, image editing and watching YouTube videos. My original HiBook will last about 8 hrs max, but the Pro version has a larger battery.

So being this is sort of time sensitive, I am going to get this posted right now….I may edit it a bit throughout the day, but folks, now is the time to strike if you have been waiting for a low price on either the HiBook Pro or the Hi12!

That is all,

Tim

Chuwi HiBook Pro Tablet Still on Sale at Chinese Retailer For $185

If you have visited this site at all you know that it runs for the most part on a Chuwi HiBook tablet. My version is the standard HiBook with the 1920 x 1200 display and a 6600 mAh battery.

Today however I noticed that Chinese retailer Banggood is offering up the Pro version for what I paid for the standard version last year. The HiBook Pro has a 2560 x 1600 display It also has the Z8350 processor which is a bit quicker and also has an 8000 mAh battery.

The other specs are the same as the standard version with a microSD card slot, a USB-C port, micro-USB port and a micro HDMI port. 4 GB ram, 64 GB eMMC on-board storage. Windows 10 and Android 5.1.

If you are looking for a really good, low-priced, 10 inch tablet you certainly will find the HiBook Pro hard to beat at only $185.

That is all for now,

Tim

Chuwi HiBook Pro Now Has a Z8350 Processor!

The HiBook Pro has a fantastic display!

The Chuwi HiBook Pro which has a fantastic display appears to now be available with a slightly faster/better CPU.  I noticed when checking some of my links today that Banggood is selling the latest version for a low cost of $179! Of course that deal ends today…but I would keep an eye out for more deals soon!

Based on what I know about the HiBook, the Pro version is an excellent choice and there are absolutely no negative reviews to be found on this product.

I have no idea when they upgraded this stellar tablet to the better processor, But at the lower price, I would jump on this deal right now! Of course I have an Hi12 coming, so I am not going to be getting one of these, but read the specs, watch the YouTube reviews and buy yourself one if you need a 10.1 inch tablet!

That is all for today…Happy Easter!
