Chuwi announces new budget LapBook 12.3 with high-res display

Budget laptop and tablet maker Chuwi has taken the wraps off of the latest entry in its lineup, the LapBook 12.3. If you're on the lookout for a laptop with some moderate specs, particularly in the screen resolution and RAM departments, at what is likely to be a decent price, then the LapBook 12.3 looks like an interesting option.

The one area in which Chuwi has really stepped things up on this model in comparison to its other LapBooks is with its screen resolution. The 12.3-inch display in this model comes with a 2736x1824 resolution, which happens to match the Surface Pro 4. Chuwi is also throwing in 6GB of RAM. Here's a look at the specs Chuwi has revealed so far:

  • Model: Chuwi LapBook 12.3
  • CPU: Intel Apollo lake N3450 processor
  • Screen: 12.3 inch retina screen
  • Resolution: 2736 * 1824
  • Storage: 6G RAM+64G ROM
  • Dual band WiFi: 2.4G/5G

Like some of Chuwi's other products, the limited 64GB of storage is where the LapBook is likely to fall short for many. Chuwi says the LapBook 12.3 will arrive at the end of April. Pricing is a mystery at the moment, but this latest LapBook is likely to be priced well within Chuwi's usual budget range of around $300.
