Chuwi’s LapBook Plus with 4K display starts at just $439

Chuwi has launched a new laptop in the market. But the interesting thing about this laptop is that it has a 4K display panel. Along with that, it comes powered by Windows 10. This laptop from Chuwi is named as the LapBook Plus. And it is quite noticeable that Chuwi took heavy influence from Apple’s MacBook while designing this laptop.

Although the Chuwi LapBook Plus comes with slightly larger bezels, the overall design is very close to MacBook. We can see a wider trackpad on Chuwi LapBook Plus same as Apple’s recent MacBook devices. Apart from that, Chuwi’s 4K laptop also comes in space grey colour. We can also say that this is the same as Huawei’s MateBook X Pro which was also similar to Apple’s MacBook in many ways. However, the biggest difference here is that Apple does not have a 4K display on its MacBook while Chuwi Lapbook Plus does.

This means that you get a much crispier display on this laptop. This is a 15.6-inch display which comes with 340 nits of peak brightness. Also, Chuwi says that this laptop has an HDR screen and 100% sRGB colour gamut. Along with that, you get 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 256GB of SSD which is decent for a laptop at this price.

Oh, did we mention the price of this laptop yet?. Chuwi LapBook Plus’s price will blow your mind to say the least. Because you can get this laptop with 4K HDR display and Windows 10 at just $439. However, this price is limited to the promotional offer days only. Even after that, you can get the Chuwi LapBook Plus at $499 which is still exceptional. The only problem with this laptop is in its processor.

Chuwi has included an Intel Atom x7-E3950 which is not a great chip, to be honest. It would have been decent if Chuwi included a Ryzen 3 or Intel Core i3 processor for this price.
