Chuwi is a Chinese manufacturer appreciated for the quality, price and performance of its products. Among the best devices, the Chinese notebook Chuwi AeroBook looks good with ultra slim metal design, Intel Core m3 – 6Y30 Dual Core processor, 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM and passive cooling (fanless), therefore super quiet.
If we look at the closed AeroBook, the notebook looks almost like a tablet with a keyboard. The size is really small with one thickness of 1.5 cm. Easy to carry in any handbag thanks to the weight 1,2 KG. The Chuwi’s design is certainly highly regarded for being so modern. The Chuwi AeroBook is based on color dark gray. The anodized aluminum lid feels well done to the touch. The display hinge is recessed into the main cover.
Overall the The Chuwi AeroBook has a good one build quality, and the speakers are good enough for watching movies too, but not too pretentious. At the bottom there are rubber feet and the SSD compartment cover. There are no ventilation grilles, the notebook has cooling fanless.
Chuwi AeroBook is equipped with a display IPS 1920 x 1080 with thin frames on the sides and top. The thickness of the frame made it possible to adapt a screen 13.3 inch. The display is not matte, but glossy. The viewing angle is not bad but we cannot expect better from a notebook for around € 360.
Keyboard and trackpad
The keyboard is perhaps among the points of merit of the Chuwi AeroBook. The keyboard of the Chuwi is made of black plastic. The keys have a very comfortable size, they are quite large compared to the same size ultrabook keyboards. For who writes a lot this notebook can give you a lot of satisfaction. The keyboard has an international layout. You see Italian keyboard stickers.
The keyboard has two levels of lighting and is managed by key F6. A point to know: the additional functions on the F-series keys are assigned as main functions and vice versa. For example, to trigger a page refresh by pressing F5, you need to press Fn. It’s strange, but it’s not hard to get used to.
The trackpad offers complete control, clearly recognizes gestures and clicks. The trackpad surface is rough.
Autonomy and performance
AeroBook copes well with periodic activities that take place in the office. Taking into account not the processor Intel Core M3 and the not particularly performing graphics card, it is clear that the notebook is not suitable for gaming. But to get a decent fps value, you have to lower the graphics level or even the screen resolution. In the benchmarks under stress the Chuwi heats up but not too much, it reaches around 65 degrees, a good result.
Thanks to’256 Gb on SSD or I 8 GB ram the AeroBook is a Chinese notebook very fast, and with Windows 10 you can install all the applications you need.
The battery lasts about 7 hours if we use the notebook only for surfing or writing on the office, lowering the brightness of the screen to a minimum.
