This Surface Pro Lookalike Has Exciting Advantages
After the successful release of the Microsoft Surface Pro in Shanghai, a Chinese tech company and hardware maker Chuwi has launched its crowdfunding battle for a Surface Pro lookalike. Chuwi's very own Windows 10 SurBook fundraising campaign has been live on Indiegogo for days. Indiegogo is the first international crowdfunding website founded in 2008.
As of now, the campaign of the SurBook has gained 399 backers who've vowed a total of $142,904. The cheapest choice available in Chuwi's project is the $300 64GB SurBook. However, the most popular for the fans have gone for the $400 model, which incorporates a backlit keyboard, a stylus, with 6GB memory and a storage of 128GB.
Aside from that, the company also teased its forthcoming "powerful but affordable" 2-in-1 Windows 10 device that is said to be unveiled in April. According to BGR, the device is said to have very strikingly similar dimensions like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. It has the same 12.3-inch display with a 2,736 x 1,824-pixel resolution but will run an Intel Apollo Lake processors.
The new Microsoft Surface Pro runs on the much more expensive Intel Kaby Lake processors and its price starts at $800 for the Core m3 model with a RAM of 4GB. As far as visual is the concerned, the new Surface Pro doesn't really differ that much to the Surface Pro 4. There are just fey key differences other than the processor.
According to ZDNet, Chuwi's SurBook starts with 6GB RAM while Microsoft's Surface Pro starts with 4GB RAM. Chuwi also delivers in the keyboard, as well as the stylus, at no extra costs, unlike the Microsoft that charges extra for these accessories. Also, the new Microsoft Surface Pro has a 13.5-hour battery life, while Chuwi's SurBook has an eight-hour life.
In addition to that, the SurBook is 200 grams heavier and slightly denser than Microsoft's Surface Pro. Although Chuwi promises for SurBook to match many points of the Surface Pro at a lower price, it won't satisfy those people who need the higher performance and larger capacity storage.
