Formed all the way back in 2004, Chuwi started to rapidly grow in 2010 when they partnered with Huawei, Google, and others. In 2013, they became strategic partners with Microsoft and Intel, furthering their continued growth. However, it wasn't until 2015 when they finally entered the international market. Having now stepped on to the world stage, they started by crowdfunding the SurBook via Indiegogo, where it was extremely successful by raising over a million US dollars.

In today's review, I take a look at what the Chuwi SurBook has to offer. Using an all too familiar Apollo Lake SOC, this unit makes use of the N3450, which is a quad-core design rather than the more common N3350 that is a dual core. With double the cores and 6 GB of DDR3 in dual channel, it will be rather interesting to see just how well it performs compared to the more common N3350. However, before we see what this hybrid tablet/PC can do, let's take a closer look at its specifications.
