Not quite the typical cheapo laptops currently available, the Chuwi Lapbook Apollo is surprisingly good for the price. At around $200, you get a slightly faster chipset, faster than Atom Cherry and also a good matte IPS screen, which is hard to come buy at this price. If you are looking for a good value laptop then look no further to this one.

  1. hi .i plan of buying chuwi hi12.mostly for photoshop and drawings. but chuwi announced the release of chuwi hi13 with higher processor. Do you think i should wait for hi13 or go for hi12?

    1. Hello Brigz,

      I dunno if the Chuwi hi13 will support Wacom Stylus or a Stylus with similar features to the Microsoft Surface. But I do know that it has a 3000×4000 pixel screen I think.

      Best Regards,
      Vince
