The Chuwi Hi13 is an inexpensive 13.5-inch tablet running Windows 10. You can get it with an optional keyboard dock and an optional stylus.

Highlights

  • High-resolution 13.5-inch screen
  • Full metal body
  • Intel Apollo Lake processor
  • Four speakers

Chuwi Hi13: The Basics

Even though the Chuwi Hi13 is fairly inexpensive, its body is completely made out of metal. Because of that, it feels quite high-end indeed. As you might expect from such a huge device, it is pretty heavy at 1.1kg. On the other hand, with just 8 millimeters it is very thin.

With its 13.5-inch display and a high resolution of 3000 x 2000, it has the same or at least a similar IPS panel as the Microsoft Surface Book. Unlike the more expensive competition, the screen is not fully laminated.

Inside the 2-in-1 runs an Intel Celeron N3450 which is a quad-core processor with four cores clocked at 1.1GHz. We’re also getting 4GB of RAM and a 64GB internal storage. Other hardware specs include dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth, a USB Type-C port and a micro HDMI connector. You can use a micro SD card to expand the storage.

Since the Chuwi Hi13 is running standard Windows 10, you can use it exactly like your typical Windows tablet, notebook or desktop PC. The performance is fine for office work and some light web browsing. Chuwi should have gone for a lower resolution display though. While the screen looks really nice, the high resolution is quite demanding for the N3450 chipset.

Availability & Price

As I mentioned previously, you generally can’t get the Chuwi Hi13 at most stores. It’s mainly sold in China or through Chinese shops that export tablets into the world. Actually, it is very easy to order – the shipping might take a couple of weeks though. Generally, you can get it at just under 300 US dollars.

Comparisons

With its 13.5-inch screen, the Chuwi Hi13 kind of competes with the Microsoft Surface Book. But it is a lot cheaper and noticeably weaker. While the screen is great, you should check out the Cube Mix Plus if you need more performance at a similar price. Another interesting competitor is the Acer Switch 3. Usually, it is more expensive but offers a similar screen size and a bit better performance.

Chuwi Hi13 test
The Chuwi Hi13 offers a good build quality and a great 13.5-inch screen. While the 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution is awesome, the performance of the Intel N3450 is a bit weak for that. On the upside: The Chuwi Hi13 is very inexpensive.
Positive
  • Great high-resolution screen
  • Good build quality
  • Tons of ports
  • Optional pen
Negative
  • Performance is lacking
  • Bad battery life
