Chuwi UBook Pro, the new generation of convertible devices

For several years, Chuwi has been mentioned as a manufacturer worth considering when buying both tablets and computers, and much more since 2013, the company has focused on the creation of a catalog with type 2 models in 1, those with the capacity to function in one way or another on equal terms. Now, the new proposal has officially arrived under the name of Chuwi UBook Pro.

Chuwi UBook Pro is a convertible computer, that is, it works as a tablet by allowing the decoupling of your physical keyboard as well as a complete laptop with Windows 10 operating system. 12.3-inch Full HD display, compatibility with stylus, Intel processor and 8 GB of RAM are just some of its main technical specifications.

Chuwi UBook Pro

A nascent model of collective financing

Among the particularities that are found in this Asian brand, it is necessary to recognize that some of the ideas are put to the consideration of the clients themselves before their materialization. Based on the so-called collective financing platforms, some models such as Chuwi UBook Pro itself have been initially put up for sale to determine the viability of the project.

Thus, this computer has obtained more than a thousand sponsors since it was published in Kickstarter at the beginning of 2019. As can be seen in the images, you can find details inspired directly from the popular series of Microsoft Surface computers, with a special interest in satisfying the Business and pleasure travel needs from a reduced weight and thickness, as well as with a larger capacity battery to avoid the use of cables for a good amount of hours.

A design with total freedom

As you can see in the images, Chuwi UBook Pro greatly combines excellent material quality with a fairly minimalist and elegant style that looks really good just by looking at it for the first time. Its marketing is only in dark gray and logically comes with a full-size integrated keyboard.

Regarding its keyboard, there is no lack of a backlight system that makes it ideal for use during night hours or in environments without good lighting, while it can be easily removed when you only want to use your screen in tablet format. For its screen, the inclusion of a folding support on its rear face makes it possible to find the ideal position angle up to 145º.

If the dimensions are of interest, the manufacturer has achieved nothing less than reducing its thickness to 9 mm, so it feels very good to have it at the same time that it takes up little space when storing it in any bag or backpack, while its weight of 780 grams is one of the lowest found in the current market.

Display and improved performance

Turning to the technical specifications, the most interesting is the quality of its screen, which reaches a size of 12.3 inches with a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The aspect ratio is optimized to 3: 2, while its compatibility with stylus includes pressure sensitivity of 2048 points, so those who need to take notes or simply draw with this model may be more than happy with the result.

Inside, the computer makes use of an update of the Intel processor model, more precisely the Intel Core m3-8100Y (dual core at a frequency of 3.6 GHz) that improves performance by more than 50% at the time to compare it with the previous m3-6Y30. It is also accompanied by an Intel UHD Graphics 615 GPU that gives enough power for multimedia activities and most classic work tasks.

Likewise, we appreciate the presence of no less than 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 256 GB storage space in SSD format that can be expanded without problems thanks to its available microSD card slot. This standard promises a read and write speed of up to 500MB / s, which means that the boot speed and loading applications have been faster than ever.

To conclude, the equipment has a battery with a capacity of 37 WH, Windows 10 Home factory installed operating system (which gives a clear difference in use compared to models such as Chuwi Hi9 Pro ), and available ports that cover a USB input -C reversible, 2 x USB-A 3.0, micro-HDMI output and classic 3.5mm audio jack .
