Chuwi hopes to provide consumers with the same look and feel as those of the prestigious tablet from Microsoft, at nearly half price
Crave the updated Surface Pro tablet of Microsoft, but also feel that the initial price of 800 dollars (not including 130 dollars on keyboard cover and 100 dollars for the compatible stylus) is a bit too much in return for the change? Chinese company Chuwi agree with you, andTurn to mass funding on the Indiegogo platform To try to do something about it.
After having achieved considerable success with a Surface Pro 4 product that received the name SurBook In the framework of mass financing before, The manufacturer of Shenzen unveiled a tablet Windows New and enlarged this season for the CoreBook name - and immediately launched a modest but intriguing crowdfunding campaign for it.
The new surface-mounted tablet offers an 13.3-inch IPS screen and an 1080p resolution with convex glass on all sides, an aluminum-clad body that includes a Kaby Lake dual-core Corem3-7Y30 processor, a dynamic 6 gigabyte memory, Basic storage of the gigabyte 128 and system Windows 10 of course - all for only $ 460 (and free shipping), which includes both the stand-up keyboard-keyboard cover and a touch pen with 1,024 click levels. A significant difference compared to the cost of over $ 1,000 you will be required to pay for a similar product package at Microsoft Office.
802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, built-in fingerprint scanner, 2 front-facing megapixel camera, 5 megapixel camera, stereo speakers, USB One Type-C, one microUSB and a card reader microSD Complete the picture.
It is worth noting that not everything is perfect in the CoreBook, quite naturally for a product with such a competitive cost. The dynamic memory is LPDDR3 (also true for the new Surface Pro), eMMC 5.1 chip storage is soldered and limited in performance compared with the drives SSD, You can not upgrade the processing unit or memory volumes with an additional charge as in Microsoft Office, A relatively modest 37-Watt-hour battery will find it difficult to provide particularly competitive working times (although at least there is a fast 36 watts charge, which can potentially bring the capacity back to 100 percent in just over an hour) and a kilogram With the keyboard) which certainly can not be set as the lowest category.
Nevertheless, the CoreBook still looks like a very intriguing computer, and having easily crossed the basic recruitment threshold set for 30,000, we can only wait patiently for a few more months to find out whether the total is larger or smaller than the whole this. what do you think?
