What is it? The Chuwi Corebook X is an Intel Core i5-powered laptop that has a 3.1-megapixel 14-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio.
What makes it special and why should I buy it? This is an affordable laptop with a QHD resolution, the sort of display you will find on a premium laptop like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 which costs nearly four times the price of the Corebook X.
How much does it cost? The laptop is available from Banggood for $510 (about £376/AU$671) until later today, no discount code needed. That’s an extra $90 off the current sale price of $600 – every little helps, after all.
What else should we know? The device is powered by the Intel Core i5-7267U which is roughly equivalent to an Intel Core i3-10110U. It is a 4-year old CPU that carries some oomph. It is paired with a whopping 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, a 46.2WHr battery, Wi-Fi 5 courtesy of an Intel Wireless-AC 7265 chip, a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, a spare M2 slot for a second SSD and a metal chassis. We love the fact that it has a backlit keyboard, supports PD via Type-C which makes it a perfect partner for modern laptop docking stations. Of course, the icing on the cake is the IPS display, a gorgeous 14-inch QHD screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio that some purists prefer.
Any cons? It has only two USB ports and no HDMI, which is a shame given that it is a 14-inch laptop.
