CHUWI LapBook 14.1


The Notebook is arguably inspired by Apple’s products and there is nothing wrong with that as long as the product satisfies customers. The laptop is an excellent option for people who are not into gaming, but still want a laptop that can get routine things done without hiccups and freezes. CHUWI decided to implement the design that has worked for Apple for years. The bezels are narrower and the laptop is sleeker than most 14-inchers out there, while it’s also light enough to be easily carried around. Although the 7th Gen Celeron processor won’t beat any performance records, it’s still good enough for most of the usual stuff. The GPU supports hardware playback of 4K videos and is even able to play some of the recent game titles, but in the lowest settings. Overall, the laptop offers excellent value for the money and tries to balance different requirements instead of shining in one particular area.
