Design

Described by Chuwi as a “cost-effective” productivity business laptop aimed at the booming SMB/WFH market, Chuwi recycled the full metal magnesium alloy chassis of the CoreBook Pro for the Chuwi GemiBook with its rounded edge. Space gray brushed finish gives it a rather classy look with no sign of flex or creak.

From left to right, there’s a Type-C connector (that does DisplayPort and supports Power Delivery with a compatible charger), a proprietary barrel port charger, a full-size USB Type-A connector, a headphone jack and a microSD card reader. A couple of extra ports would have been welcomed. At 289 x 219 x 17.75mm for a weight of 1.28Kg, the Gemibook is surprisingly compact without being super lightweight. What’s even more impressive is that it has two M.2 SATA slots, one of which is occupied. Underneath are plenty of air vents and four rubber feet that elevate the laptop base to help with air circulation.

Hardware

Chuwi engineers swapped out the Core i5 processor in the CoreBook Pro for the Intel Celeron J4115 which is a quad-core, quad-thread CPU with 4MB cache. It won’t break world records but it is as fast as a 5th generation Intel Core i5 processor. So it should have enough oomph for light business use cases.

The other highlight of the Gemibook is its 13-inch screen, a 2160 x 1440pixels, fully laminated IPS display with a 3:2 aspect ratio. It has  50% more pixels than on a full HD display means extra workload for the onboard UHD Graphics video subsystem.

Elsewhere, there’s an M.2 2280 storage component, a 256GB Kingston SATA SSD (rbusns8180s3256gj), and an uncommon memory configuration, 12GB LPDDR4X memory in dual-channel mode, soldered to the motherboard. An Intel Wireless-AC 9461 card delivers Wi-Fi 5 connectivity and Bluetooth 5. The battery is a 38Whr model, smaller than the CoreBook Pro. In addition, it comes with a proprietary 24W (12V, 2A) wall charger.

Gizcoupon Review
The Chuwi Gemibook sets a new standard for Windows-based entry-level laptops. We have never seen anything like this before at that price and while you can question its robustness, you can’t take away the fact that, on paper, at least, it is miles ahead of anything else on the market.
