Chuwi LapBook 12.3 review

Chuwi's LapBook 12.3 is one serious part of portable workstation for your cash, with a gem of a show. 

Chuwi is one Chinese PC producer that hasn't been short on item discharges in the course of recent months regardless of being a relative newcomer outside of terrain China. 

The Hi13, Hi10, LapBook, HiBox Mini and the Hi12 have all been generally welcomed, with the Hi arrangement pointed decisively at Microsoft's set up and grant winning Surface range. Also the way that Chuwi has just flagged its desire with an abnormally prominent crowdsourcing venture, the Surbook, that has raised right around 20 times more than its objective with almost two weeks to go.

The LapBook 12.3 is the most recent expansion to this range and positions itself as a 'souped-down' portable workstation likeness the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. As it were, if the Surface Pro 4 had a portable PC equal, the LapBook 12.3 would have been its immediate rival (and no, we're not including the Surface Laptop thusly a gadget). 

Online Chinese retailer, Gearbest, sent us the example and offers the LapBook 12.3 for around £245 ($320). Note that while this cost incorporates conveyance, it is restrictive of any assessments that might be imposed by HMRC or the messenger organizations in the interest of the merchant. Need to purchase tech from online Chinese retailers? Read this first.


In many regards, the above examination with the Surface Pro 4 is a diversion. A superior approach to think about this gadget is: if the iPad Pro and MacBook Air had an adoration youngster, it's conceivable that it would resemble the LapBook 12.3. There are clear plan signals that point to some genuine tasteful motivation from Apple's scope of items (yet then Apple's incredible CEO, Steve Jobs, jested himself that the organization has "dependably been indecent about taking extraordinary thoughts"). 

Given the dark edge encompassing the screen and the thick bezel, the wedge profile, all-metal suspension and the 'mono-pivot' alongside a brushed aluminum complete, it's not shocking that many individuals' underlying idea will be "Apple" while looking at this note pad surprisingly.

Like the iPad Pro and the Surface Pro 4, the LapBook 12.3 has a show with a 3:2 angle proportion and like the last mentioned, it is a 12.3-inch display with a 2,736 x 1,824 determination. That is just about five million pixels, more than twice what you'd anticipate from a couple of full HD screens. 

That is additionally a higher pixel thickness than the iPad Pro or Apple MacBook Pro Retina Display.

This is a somewhat substantial portable PC at 293 x 200 x 15mm with a weight of just shy of 1.4kg. A noteworthy component that adds to the enormous impression of the LapBook 12.3 is the thick bezel – tablet and portable workstation sellers utilize these on the grounds that they prove to be useful for holding your gadget in touch mode. 

In any case, this portable PC isn't touch-proficient and the matte complete just serves to underline this point, so all things considered, this is a somewhat befuddling move by Chuwi here. 

Somewhere else, the journal packs two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI connector (that can bolster 4K at 60Hz), a microSD card space, an earphone attachment and a restrictive power port which associates with a 24W (12V, 2A) block style control supply unit. 

Flip the machine over and you will find a fold that shrouds an unfilled space where you can connect to a M2-measure SSD, in addition to there are two speaker flame broils and four elastic feet on the underside. 


Inside the LapBook 12.3 is the inexorably well known Intel Celeron N3450, a 14nm individual from the Apollo Lake family, which is a quad-center (four-string) processor with a 1.1GHz base recurrence blasting to 2.2GHz. It has a 6W TDP and 2MB store, alongside coordinated Intel HD Graphics 500 timed at 200MHz, blasting to 700MHz.

Sponsorship that up is 6GB of framework RAM, likely in a 4GB in addition to 2GB setup, intended to benefit as much as possible from the double channel memory support of the N3450. Note that the CPU bolsters up to 8GB of RAM so in principle, expecting that none of the memory modules are welded in and the memory openings are available, you ought to have the capacity to swap them. 

Not surprisingly, the capacity subsystem comprises of 64GB eMMC memory (Toshiba 064G93, a prominent model among Chinese brands), which is one way producers figure out how to eliminate costs. 



  • Jaw dropping super-high-res display
  • Very nicely priced
  • Officially supports Ubuntu

  • Massive bezel isn’t needed
