Chuwi Hi10 X: The Basics
The Chuwi Hi10 X is a clamshell laptop that gives you the option to detach the display for being used as a tablet, much like many modern Windows laptops. Its tablet portion has a 10.1-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels in a taller 16:10 aspect ratio. The unibody metal chassis offers a certain degree of sturdiness, and the same goes for its keyboard deck. Besides pocking your fingers, you have the option to use the included stylus that supports 1024 pressure points.
Everything on this tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel Gemini Lake N4100 processor that comes with an integrated UHD Graphics 600 GPU. You’ll be able to pick the Hi10 X in only one configuration — 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage that you can expand further using a memory card. It comes preloaded with Windows 10 for a full desktop-like experience. In terms of connectivity, you will get dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 support.
Chuwi is also offering a great selection of ports that includes a pair of USB Type-C ports on the tablet portion, while the keyboard deck has an additional pair of traditional Type-A ports. Besides that, the tablet also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a mini HDMI out port for its use in boardrooms for connecting to a projector or a bigger screen. With a battery capacity of 3250mAh, the tablet is claimed to last for at least 6 hours on comprehensive use along with a standby time of 260 hours.

Availability & Pricing
As always, you can get one of these from a number of Chinese stores that ship globally. It is available for purchase right away and should reach most countries within a couple of weeks of placing the order. You’re in luck if you don’t need the keyboard attachment as the tablet can be purchased without any accessories.
Banggood is selling the tablet unit* and its dock* separately for a price of $220 and $52, respectively. Though on AliExpress*, you can get the entire bundle with the keyboard and stylus included for $246, while you still have the option to buy the tablet alone.
Chuwi Hi10 X Alternatives
If you’re looking for a form factor along the lines of the Surface Pro, then you can get Chuwi’s own UBook Pro that has a kickstand and supports a keyboard attachment. Or, go for the Chuwi HiPad LTE and you’ll save tens of dollars in the process. Alldocube also experimented with a similar design in its Nuvision tablet that costs similar to the Hi10 X. Coming to a more traditional brand, Lenovo also made a detachable budget tablet called IdeaPad D330 (review) that you can consider getting instead of the Chuwi model.
Those who can stretch their budget a bit can get Microsoft’s Surface Go tablet (review), which carries all the good points of the Surface Pro. Aside from that, Apple also refreshed its budget iPad (review) to support keyboard attachment, which is worth checking out. The Samsung Galaxy S5e (review) was released last year as a fantastic budget table that works well with a keyboard using its magnetic connector.
Chuwi Hi10 XThe Chuwi Hi10 X is more like a traditional laptop that can be detached from its base for being used as a tablet. You're getting the full Windows 10 experience, plus there is the option to use a stylus. It is powered by an Intel processor that should be great for regular use and the plethora included ports should always come handy.
