the Chuwi MiniBook X is a compact computer with a 10.8-inch touchscreen, a 360-degree hinge that lets you switch between laptop and tablet modes, an Intel Celeron N5100 quad-core processor, 12GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD.

After going on pre-order in January, the Chuwi MiniBook X is now available. It is available for purchase for $559 from Chuwi shop Where banggood. You can also add an optional pressure-sensitive pen to your order for an additional $20.

Although not as compact as the original Chuwi MiniBook (or the recently launched model with an updated processor), which had an 8-inch screen and weighed 1.5 pounds, the MiniBook X is still quite small by modern laptop standards.

It measures 9.6″ x 6.6″ x 0.7″ and weighs around 2 pounds, which is more the size you’d expect from a 2-in-1 device with tablet and keyboard. an edge-to-edge keyboard that isn’t detachable: it hides behind the screen when you don’t need it and folds out when you do.

This lets you use the MiniBook X as a small laptop or some sort of large tablet. The 10.8-inch screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, a punch-hole cutout for a 5MP webcam, and slim bezels for a 90% screen-to-body ratio. The optional stylus supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity for writing or drawing on the screen.

Other features include LPDDR4x memory, an M.2 slot for solid-state storage, support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2, and a selection of ports including two USB Type-C ports and an audio jack 3 .5mm. The laptop will come with Windows 11 Home software pre-installed.

A potential defect? The MiniBook X has a 26.6 Wh (7.6 V / 3,800 mAh) battery, which is a bit on the small side even for a small-screen laptop. At least the laptop charges via a 45-watt USB-C power adapter, which means not only will the charger be relatively small and easy to carry around with you, but you’ll also likely be able to use a relatively inexpensive power bank as an external battery.

The MiniBook X has a larger screen and a more powerful processor than other members of the Chuwi MiniBook family. The new model Celeron N5100 The processor is a 6-watt quad-core chip with a base frequency of 1.1 GHz and supports burst speeds up to 2.8 GHz as well as Intel UHD graphics with 24 execution units and frequencies of 350 MHz and 800 MHz base/burst, respectively.

One thing to keep in mind before buying the MiniBook X is that like many other products from Chuwi and other small companies that ship products to customers directly from China, customer support will likely be limit.
