Pick up Chuwi's LapBook Air at a discount for $399

Chuwi is running a one-day sale on its LapBook Air, dropping the price down to $399. Available at AliExpress (opens in new tab), that's a 25 percent discount from the laptop's current list price of $533.32 at the online retailer.

In terms of specs, the LapBook Air includes an Intel Celeron N3450 processor at a base clock rate of 1.1GHz. That's in addition to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The display is a 14.1-inch 1080p IPS panel.

As for ports, Chuwi says the LapBook Air is packed with an SD card slot, two USB 3.0 ports, a single micro HDMI port, and, of course, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. You'll also find a 2MP webcam peering out above the display.

The LapBook Air isn't going to set any benchmarking records, to be sure, but it's not a bad option if you just need a simple, budget laptop to do some writing and web browsing. The $399 sale is set to run for one day, and Chuwi says it is also throwing in a free leather laptop bag for the duration as well.

  • $380 everyday price on Gearbest. Not sure why this warrants a special post.  
  • If you havent notice Windows Central has been promoting this brand for quite some time, I bet its bout the money!
  • touchscreen?
  • My Chuwi was a POS.  No support.  A very bad experience.   Now resides at local dump.
  • I have a CHUWI hi10 and a CHUWI hi12. I hear that they have a 5% failure rate and their support is terrible. That being said, I gambled and won. I love both tablets. They are very sturdy.  I'm in Windows 10  97%  of the time, and only boot over to android for that odd app.  If this "lapbook air" was a tablet (and booted to android) I'd be buying it.  
  • @ Mike Semblance.  5% failure rate is awesome...considering Microsoft themselves gave the surface a 25% failure rate.  I am wondering if this device is faster and more up to date than my son's S3 acer ultrabook?
