New version of the UMPC CHUWI MiniBook that this time reduces some of its features in order to cut its price significantly.
Some changes that mainly affect its processor, since this time we have a more modest Chip, the Intel Celeron J4125. In other more powerful versions we had better processors and screens. The RAM memory is also reduced to 6 GB, although this will not impact its usability excessively, since most of these UMPCs are used for basic tasks. The exterior appearance of the CHUWI MiniBook continues without major changes with its Yoga-type design that allows it to be converted into a tablet by folding the screen on the base where the keyboard is located.
