Chuwi, the Chinese manufacturer popular for its tablets and 2-in-1 convertibles with Windows, relies on crowdfunding to launch some of its devices on the market. So he did with SurBook, which managed to raise more than a million dollars in his last campaign, and now goes the same way with CoreBook, a powerful 2 in 1 convertible that triumphs in Indiegogo.
The Chuwi CoreBook stands out for offering the power of a conventional laptop but with the lightness and portability that a tablet provides. It has a 13.3-inch touch screen with full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and a brightness of 350 nits, developed with a fully laminated technology to reduce glare and perfect for use both indoors and outdoors.
To make the experience in the tablet mode as satisfactory as possible, the screen has a palm lock and offers a writing angle of less than 30 degrees, as well as an active pencil with 1,024 pressure points to take notes. On the other hand, to function as a laptop for all purposes, the CoreBook of Chuwi is equipped with a wide-angle keyboard with continuous hinges, which can be adjusted between 0 and 165 degrees to suit the user.
The team integrates an Intel Core M3 7th generation with two cores and four threads, with excellent performance for both working and playing video games. The chip is accompanied by an Intel HD Graphics 615 GPU, a component that supports playing 4K videos and running 3D games, 6 GB of DDR3 RAM to ensure smooth multitasking and 128 GB of eMMC 5.1 storage. The operating system is Windows 10 Home.

The equipment is completed with a fingerprint reader on the front to unlock the device, and a high-density lithium battery with up to eight hours of autonomy with fast 12V / 3A charger. In addition, it integrates a USB-C 3.0 port for charging and data transmission.
If you want to get hold of the Chuwi CoreBook, the price of Indiegogo will surprise you. You have the possibility to buy the convertible tablet 2 in 1 for only $ 459, 23% cheaper than it will cost when it hits the market, or for $ 499 (26% discount) if you want the pack with the capacitive pen.
In addition, those who have subscribed to the official website will receive by email an even lower price for 50 CoreBook units and 250 units of the complete set.
