Design & Display
Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 comes in a slim package measuring only 20.mm when the lid is closed. The entire device is made from plastic, meaning it doesn’t feel like a premium device. However, the bezels on the Lapbook 14.1 are surprisingly thin giving you a nice screen-to-body ratio.
From the name, you can guess that the display of the Lapbook 14.1 is 14.1-inches. The display is Full-HD, which means that you get a pixel density of 118PPI.

As with most Chinese laptops, the Lapbook 14.1 notebook PC comes with Windows 10 OS preinstalled. With Microsoft’s latest OS, you are afforded a great opportunity to a vast collection of software; and you also get Cortana – the virtual assistant that is bundled with the new OS.

Battery capacity on the Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 stands at 9000mAh. You also get a 12V/2A power adapter for charging the laptop.
Coming at an affordable price tag – which by the way is the trademark for most Chinese devices, the Chuwi Lapbook 14.1 is no doubt a nice notebook PC. However, the small 64GB of ROM and the low-entry processor are the major drawbacks; besides these, the Lapbook 14.1 is a decent laptop.
