It seems that the stock shortages of Intel processors are motivating manufacturers to take hold of any Chip they find, including chips that we can consider obsolete. This is the case of the new 14.1-inch laptop called Chuwi HeroBook that recovers the old SoC of Atom x5-Z8350, a SoC launched no less than 3 years ago and widely surpassed at this point. The rest of the specifications are on par with the SoC and make this a basic laptop and we hope that it is very economical.
SoC, Ram and storage
Chuwi HeroBook includes the old Quad Core SoC Intel Atom x5-Z8350, with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and 64GB of internal storage eMMc expandable only via the microSD card reader found in the back. A simple configuration for Windows 10 although suitable for basic use.
Screen and other specifications
The screen is 14.1 inches narrow frames and a resolution that we expect will be 1920 × 1200 pixels. At the level of wireless connectivity we do not have data. The included connectors are a USB 2.0 port, a USB 3.0 port, audio jack and a miniHDMI output. The battery will be 38Wh and advertise that it will last about 8-9 hours.
Price in stores
- Chuwi HeroBook will be on sale in a couple of weeks in Chinese stores at a price for a approximate price of $200 (176€).
