    Have you heard of the Chuwi SurBook?

    Yep, it is a Surface clone and yes they are a Microsoft Partner.

    Just over a week left to get a great deal on a new 2-in-1 through IndieGoGo with $100 off the top end model and a free Tempered Glass screen protector for all preorders (stretch goal met).

    • Windows 10 ("Chuwi is committed to using a full, licensed version of Windows 10, not the cut down Windows 10 S that some rivals use.")
    • Intel Celeron N3450 (Apollo Lake), 4 core, 1.1 GHz w/ Turbo to 2.2 GHz (fanless)
    • 6GB DDR3 RAM
    • 64GB or 128GB flash memory
    • 12.3" display, 3:2 ratio, (2k) 2736 x 1824 pixels at 267ppi, 450 nits
    • Magnesium alloy casing and 125 degree hinged kickstand
    • Ports: (1x) full function USB Type C, (2x) USB 3.0, microSDXC
    • 2 stereo speakers, microphone, headphone jack
    • 5MP rear camera, 2MP ffc
    • WiFi: a/b/g/n/ac 2.4/5 GHz, Bluetooth 4.0
    • Ambient Light/Hall/Gravity sensors
    • 10,000 mAh Li-Po battery
    • Supports pen w/ up to 1024 levels of pressure

    Preorder now and get the 128GB Surbook, pen and detachable backlit keyboard for $399 USD. Includes free shipping and since they raised over 600k all preorders will get a free 2.5d Tempered Glass screen protector. $299 gets you the 64GB Surbook and $349 gets you the 64GB w/ pen and keyboard.

    I looked pretty hard and could not find a better value in a 2-in-1 unless I went to the used market.

    I bought in. Who's with me?

    Looks like a good device for the price, I'm still hesitant about that company myself. Either way I won't get one as it's a downgrade to my current Surface Pro 3.

    You should write a post about your thoughts on it, or a small review when you get it.

    I'm definitely not expecting more than I'm paying for. I've seen some favorable revues of Chuwi that usually take the value aspect into consideration as well as some negative ones that seem to have lost that perspective. LOL, if I had an SP3 I wouldn't need this SurBook so I agree with you there. I think I'm going in with sufficient research and appropriate expectations. Most of my work load entails little in the way of heavy lifting.

    Honestly my current laptop is about even or a little behind and I'm hoping this replaces it as a daily. I want the better portability over a 15.6" laptop that weighs in over 5 lbs and better inking than the low ppi touch screen I have now. My tablet is also long in the tooth since it's a Nokia 2520. Don't get me wrong, they both still handle my needs, but this seems a good shot at replacing them both and a good value with the $100 discount.

    I'll definitely write something up after it comes in...

    Already have a quality Samsung Evo Select 128GB card and a Samsung T3 250GB portable ssd on the way to round things out and give me enough storage for daily driver use.

    Nobody? Only about a week left to save...

    Did I mention the svelte fingerprint reader I found to enable Hello for this tablet? Testing it on my laptop now. It's pretty quick and accurate.

    Good call @Nico Dekker

    Yeah, I'm excited to see mine arrive as well. And for the discounted price the $399 package is definitely the way to go. Welcome aboard the SurBook train.

    Extended 20 days... https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/c...95313#/updates

    • Prices took a slight bump up
    • "Will not at any way affect our delivery timeline"
    • "Earliest supporters will receive their orders first"
    • "We may start to ship SurBook at the end of July or early August"

    Note that the last bit contradicts the initial timeline slightly...

    I'm still 100% confident I'll see delivery. I also hope the extra time is spent ironing out any last minute bugs.

    Hoping this starts shipping soon. I have a host of accessories waiting here at home to enhance my SurBook experience. I already have a soft carry case with many pockets to hold the Tablet, Keyboard, Pen and everything else...
