Chuwi SurBook Mini performance

The performance of SurBook Mini is pretty good, screen looks good, touch very responsive. For normal usage this is perfect, i.e. watching movies, listening to your favourite music, playing low end games, browsing the net, chatting, checking email, photo editing, video editing (to some extent). This definitely is not for gaming users.

Chuwi SurBook Mini houses a 8000 mAh battery that gives a really good backup time, you can expect up to 8 hours of non-stop usage. The 12V/2A charger can charge the 8000 mAh battery is just about 3 hours.

Rating 4.2 out of 5

I have been using this SurBook Mini for quite sometime and always take it with me for events, it is compact and gives a really good battery life. I use it for editing stories and with minimal use of PhotoShop.
