Chuwi might not be an household name yet but they make really nice mid-range laptops and 2-in-1 tablets that are fashionable and powerful. One of their latest release is the 2-in-1 tablet, the UBook Pro which is said to be one of the world most versatile tablet out there and in fact the best Chuwi ever built. Chuwi as we know had always strive to make really awesome computers and both older and newer generations of their computers never disappoints.
With the likes of the Chuwi Lapbook Pro 14 which was really a solid replacement for the previous Lapbook Air which was meant to be a mid-range Windows powered alternative of the Apple MacBook Air. Aside the compact design with a blade thin design, it also has premium quality build from aluminium materials that makes the device firm unlike all these wobbling plastic laptops.
Whats even more interesting about this tablet is the U-Shaped stand that can convert the device into a Laptop making it stand firm on any surface that you may place it. Aside the back stand, the Chuwi UBook Pro will have a slim body design at just 9mm and will weigh 780grams which would make it easy to carry around. It also offer supports for a magnetic keyboard dock like the previous model.
Convenience is what Chuwi took to heart while designing this device. Its lightweight and comfort while placing it on your lap is why you might want to get one for yourself. The device offers a bigger battery and a much more cooling system so it does not get too hot when being used on heavy tasks like video editing.
It has speakers which are hidden on each side of the device offering better volume and sound quality than normal tablets’ speakers. So believe it when I say you can host a mini party with just the Chuwi UBook Pro as the only media device you have.
The u-shaped kickstand has a maximum opening angle of 145° and can transform the tablet into a laptop, workstation or tablet, offering flexibility to its user in every situation.
The 12.3″ FHD IPS display with 3:2 aspect ratio brings larger workspace
A fully laminated 12.3 FHD IPS panel with 3:2 aspect ratio allows the Chuwi UBook to offer you a vivid and vibrant experience which makes video or picture previewing really amazing from direct stare at the screen of the device.
The 3:2 aspect ratio is vigorously promoted by Microsoft for the Windows 10 OS as it is the golden ratio for productivity when typing, web browsing, coding, etc. What’s more, the touch panel supports 2048 pressure-sensitive stylus.
CPU: Intel’s 8th Gen Core™ m3-8100Y
Mind you, this is a mid range laptop and so features a mid-range processor which might not be really powerful for heavy duties. But still the Intel Core M3-8100Y CPU makes the performance of the device amazing pushing the improvement more than 50 percent right over the previous generation. The processor is built with Intel’s advanced 14nm+ manufacturing process, it’s a dual-core/four threads chip and the highest frequency reaches up to 3.4 GHz.
Also, with the Intel UHD Graphics 615, hardware decoding of 4K video is supported and it also provides a good experience in video editing and even some heavy games
Amazingly, it also has multiple ports
Despite being a quite small 2-in-1 tablet, it offers full port for your usage. Unlike many laptops that are now getting rid of different ports altogether. The Chuwi UBook Pro comes with many I/O Ports that includes 2X USB-A, 1 x USB – C, 1 x Micro HDMI, 1 x 3.5 mm headphone port and a DC power supply port.
Docking the device has a contactor at the bottom and a TF card reader for extending the memory or file transfer. This is like a typical computer that you already know and use.
The total of these ports can meet daily needs and also offer external display, high-speed data transmission, a portable Docking keyboard, etc. Definitely a generous set of ports that when compared with devices from giants like Apple and Microsoft seems way superior. Maybe these companies have something to learn from smaller manufacturers.
