Chuwi LapBook 12.3
Compact design and 2K display
With dimensions of just 29.30 x 20.00 x 1.50 cm, the Chuwi LapBook 12.3 plays in the same league as the Xiaomi Air 12. Despite the compact design and the unibody aluminum housing, the notebook weighs a whopping 1.4 kg. The anodized and sandblasted surface of the housing gives it a special visual touch. The 12.3 inch display has a razor-sharp 2736 x 1824 pixels and thus comes to a point density of 267 PPI. Incidentally, the LapBook 12.3 uses the same display as the Surface Pro 4 or Surface Pro 2017. The aspect ratio is 3: 2. Chuwi specifies the luminance as a comparatively high 450 nit.
An Intel Celeron N12.3 processor works inside the LapBook 3450. This processor was introduced in mid-2016, belongs to the Apollo Lake platform and is considered the successor to the Intel Atom series. A total of 4 processor cores clock at a minimum of 1.1 GHz and a maximum of 2.2 GHz. This makes the processor primarily suitable for everyday office work. A whopping 6GB of RAM provides support. When it comes to internal memory, the Chuwi notebook uses a 64GB eMMC memory. The storage can also be expanded with an M.2 SSD via an easily accessible M.2 slot. Another feature of the system-on-chip is the integrated processor graphics "Intel HD Graphics 500". This is based on the Gen9 architecture and supports, among other things, DirectX 12. One or two computer games can be played smoothly with the Intel HD Graphics 500. Hardware playback of VP9 and H.265 encoded video material is also supported.
Connectivity, camera and battery
The connection options of the Chuwi LapBook 12.3 amount to two USB 3.0 sockets, a mini HDMI socket and a 3.5 mm audio connection. The notebook wirelessly supports the WiFi protocols 802.11b / g / n / ac and thus dual band AC. The notebook is also compatible with Bluetooth 4.0. A 0.3 megapixel camera is located above the display for video telephony. The battery has a capacity of 8000 mAh and should be on par with the other LapBook models in terms of runtime.
