The Chuwi UBook has a few noteworthy features for its budget category. Chuwi UBook is a Surface Pro lookalike that’s less powerful but considerably more affordable. With the U-shaped support base and docking keyboard, the Ubook can be easily converted into a tablet, laptop, or marker and fits perfectly into the office, home and travel. The U-shaped mount not only saves a lot of space inside but also reduces the weight of the entire chassis.
Chuwi Ubook is equipped with an 11.6-inch touch-screen IPS display. However, the manufacturer has not yet provided its resolution and proportions. The screen can also be operated with the stylus, which detects 1024 pressure levels. Chuwi Ubook is a hybrid, a device consisting of a tablet and keyboard, which can be disconnected at any time. Thanks to this, it can play two roles: a classic tablet and something like a laptop.
If necessary, the user can also use the feet to place the equipment on, for example, a desk or a table (inclination up to 145°). Made of aviation aluminum alloy, the UBook boasts of only 9mm thickness. While it weighs just 760 grams, that’s still about 200 grams heavier than the Surface Go, although the latter sports a smaller display size. Chuwi Ubook adopts a U-shaped kickstand similar to HP Spectre X2. It supports stepless adjustment between 0 to 150 degrees.
Upgraded from the previous Intel 6Y30 to the Intel N4100, the processor features quad-core and four threads, the highest frequency reaches up to 2.4 GHz. In addition to upgraded performance, the processor of Intel N4100 has low power consumption, which can work smoothly and efficiently. For the graphics processing, UBook is upgraded from the Intel UHD 515 to Intel UHD 600, which can decode 4K video easily. For the storage, Chuwi UBook has upgraded from the previous eMMC to a large 256GB SSD, which is faster in reading and writing.
With the storage combination of 8GB LPDDR4+256GB SSD, UBook is more efficient in dealing with multiple tasks. Compared with the popular tablet Surface Go, UBook is more cost-efficient. At a similar price, compared with UBook 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space, Surface Go has only 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space, which is poorer not only in the speed of reading and writing but also in the storage.

Inside there’s a 26.6Wh battery, which should offer plenty of hours of fun (9.5 hours on paper). The detachable keyboard has backlit keys and a spill-resistant coating. The tablet also includes a USB-C, two full-size USB 3.0, micro HDMI, and an audio connector. A separate DC port is used to charge the battery. And since we are talking about the battery, according to the declaration of the Veil, the energy reserve in the cell will last for up to 9.5 hours of operation on a single charge.
In general, the configuration of Chuwi UBook has upgraded in many aspects. Not only the upgraded processor of Intel N4100 and large SSD storage, but various interfaces also make it more powerful to deal with tasks.
