Chuwi MiniBook 8
Body and Design
The Chuwi MiniBook 8 is small, and were talking seriously small. Before the review unit arrived, I knew I would be looking at a very small computer. I was still surprised by just how small it was when I took it out of the box. You can see the dimensions listed above, but the MiniBook may still surprise you when you see it in person.
Display and Brightness
Given the 8-inch screen size, you might expect less than HD resolution. That isnt the case. The Chuwi MiniBook 8 has a resolution of 1920 x 1200, meaning that the display looks quite sharp, no matter how close you look.
Chuwis marketing around the MiniBook 8 makes it clear that this computer should be able to serve as your only PC, should you wish it to. This is a clear difference from the netbooks of old. Those were best used for browsing the web, as the name implied. The MiniBook can do much more.
Chuwi equipped the MiniBook with a 26.6Whr battery. I routinely got around eight hours of use off of a charge, though this lowered somewhat when running benchmarks and other hardware-intensive apps. You may get more or less depending on your usage. (source: www.makeuseof.com)
