I only saw 1024 pressure sensor and aesthetics similar to the Surface Book

Honestly, seeing at the specs, the only bottleneck I see is the Intel Apollo Lake N3450, which I think would hold back the performance of the Notebook. Although it isn’t a bad chipset, neither is it powerful, I would have expected a bit more, probably Kaby Lake or at least Skylake, which is powerful enough to run the 2K High Resolution Screen. It seems like a repeat of the Chuwi Hi13. Anyway, that is just my thoughts.

Highlights of Chuwi SurBook:

  • 12.3 inch IPS 2736 x 1824 pixels IGZO Screen (3:2 Aspect Ratio)
  • 6 GB RAM and 128 GB eMMC
  • Powered by Intel Apollo Lake N3450 Celeron
  • Backlit Keyboard
  • 125° Adjustable Kickstand
  • USB Type C interface and 2x USB 3.0 Slots
  • Dual Band 2.4/5GHz WiFi Support
  • 1024 Pressure Sensor Stylus Support (probably similar to the Chuwi HiPen H3)
  • Fast Charging Support (PD 2.0)
  • 37Wh Battery

Some Cons:

  • No SSD storage (only eMMC)
  • Apollo Lake isn’t that powerful compared to Kaby Lake (preferred would be Kaby Lake especially for a 2K screen)
