For a few days we have available for reservation the small CHUWI MiniBook X, a laptop for productivity with fanless design and that incorporates some interesting novelty in its design.
In addition to not incorporating fans, with which we will have a noise of 0db, it has an elegant body made of aluminium alloy with a thickness of only 11mm and a weight of only 899 grams. Surprising in the MiniBook X is its front webcam installed on the left side of the 10.8-inch screen in a small hole, something common in smartphones, but rarely seen in laptops.
In its careful design, we also find Yoga-type hinges that allow it to adopt all kinds of positions. Its hardware configuration has as its main element a Celeron N5100 manufactured in 10nm, interesting to extend battery life for longer thanks to its good energy efficiency.
Processor, RAM and storage
The new CHUWI MiniBook X hides inside an Intel Celeron N5100 processor, a chip with four x86 cores capable of reaching 2.40 GHz in turbo mode and that integrates an Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU with 12EU with video support 4K@60fps. A sufficient processor to surf the internet, office work, classic emulators and light games without much 3D load.
This small laptop has 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM on board, a 512 GB M.2 SSD that we can easily expand by adding another one with greater capacity in another extra M.2 slot and a micro SD card reader.
Screen and other specifications
The display of the CHUWI MiniBook X is a 10.8-inch narrow bezel IPS touch screen, 2560 x 1400 2.5K resolution, 4096 pressure levels and 100% sRGB. We also have dual-band Wi-Fi aC connectivity, Bluetooth 4.2 and a 26.6 Wh battery with 40 W PD 2.0 fast charge and a duration that can reach up to 8 hours. As for connectors, we have a USB Type-C port with data and video output functions, another USB Type-C for charging and data, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
The operating system installed on Windows 11. We have a fairly large trackpad, the keys are printed in English, but we can easily use it in Spanish using various methods.
