The brand is Chuwi and it’s called LapBook.

It is 14.1″ and comes with a 12V/2A power supply and power cord, a user manual in English and Chinese, a warranty card, and a product inspection report.

The device is very thin, and quite light (1.5 kg).
One of the side comes with the power jack, a USB 3.0 port which can power external hard drive without any issues runs proper USB 3 speeds, a mini HDMI output,

while the others features a micro SD slot, a headphone jack, and a USB 2.0 port.

All plastic it’s made out of a quality plastic. It’s very good finished.
The LapBook is very thin.

It should be ABS plastic. The hinges I feel them good and strong and the screen is also quite steady surround bu very thin bezels.

The screen panel is 1080p IPS with the maximum of 235 lumens brightness that I measured.
It is sufficient for indoor use it because it has an anti-glare coating on there I find it to be really good and you can even use it outdoor too.

The keyboard layout is good.
Actually really good, however shortcuts for the brightness controls is missing on it.
And power button not the best placement because you can hit it by accident.
Of course you can set Power button to do nothing in Windows.

The TouchPad I do feel it’s one of the better ones I have seen on a budget notebook.
Only I really hate windows gestures but you can use a software called – Autohotkey and disable them.
There is a camera on the top but I was able to only record in 480 p resolution.
Some kind of big with Windows 10 doesn’t allow to use 720p.

The webcam microphone is located just above the keyboard.
I don’t particularly like this position. I wished it was next the webcam as a result will pick up noise from the keyboard if you are typing away when talking with someone on Skype at same time.
Also I don’t particularly like down placement speakers because we lose on the volume and quality of sound

The LapBook comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC ROM.

Now is time for some benchmarks.

GeekBench:

CrystalDiskMark:

As you can see the results are not the greatest but they are quite enough.
The lapbook comes with M.2 slot so you can add if you want fast SSD.

I ran some games on it and they are playable at lowered details.

For my surprise this Laptop can play even 4K videos, which is great.

Also the audio quality from 3.5mm jack is very good.

Lets don’t forget that this budget notebook is made for best battery life.
Speaking of which is pretty Decent – 9000mAh.

Full charge is done in 3 hours

So in concluding:

Pros:
Solid build with good finish
Fast wireless AC with good range.
Nice 3.5 audio quality.
Empty m.2 SSD slod for upgrades
Good keyboard.
Can play 4K videos.
Decent battery life.

Cons:
No keyboard brightness shortcut.
Flat sounding speakers.
Poor webcam.
