CHUWI Hi10 X Highlights
These features are impressive considering the affordable price point.
The space gray CHUWI Hi10 X comes with a 10.1-inch IPS screen, full metal chassis, quad-core Intel Gemini Lake the N4100 CPU, 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage rather than 64GB at about 250 bucks (with the detachable keyboard).
For a 13-inch 2-in-1 device, opt for this one (Acer Spin 5 2020 convertible). And for a 14-inch one, check this Lenovo Flex 5 model.
Without the keyboard, it will cost less (about 29 bucks less), but we recommend you to get the model with the keyboard for more productivity. Also, the price varies over time, so get it when the best price is available.
Despite being constructed with the durable metal material, this device is very thin, has only 8.8mm thickness, and weighs only about 600g. When you use it as a laptop, it weighs a total of about 1344g and has 18mm thickness.
You may be interested in purchasing a non-convertible laptop from CHUWI too, if that’s the case, get this one, the HeroBook Pro 14.1 inch.
The sandblasted silver finish adds the premium looks and feels to this unit. The IPS screen has a 16:10 aspect ratio and with 1920 x 1200 Full-HD resolution.
Dual USB Type C Ports
The CHUWI Hi10 X includes the 12V 2A 24W power input and it also comes with dual USB Type-C ports. 1x USB 2.0 Type-C for charging and data transfer, and 1x USB 3.0 Type-C for data transfer only.
This is amazing since lots of 2-in-1 devices that cost more than this one do not have charging via USB C feature.
Nice Variety of Ports
On the top left, you will locate the power and audio up and down volume buttons.
Then on the left-hand side, you will see the 3.mm Headphone jack, 1x Micro-HDMI, 1x USB 2.0 Type-C (for charging and data), 1x USB 3.0 Type-C (data only), 1x TF card slot and speaker.

The micro-HDMI slot is handy if you want to watch a movie from your tablet on your TV since you can easily connect your TV to your tablet’s micro-HDMI slot.
On the right side of the device, there is another speaker on the bottom right side.
Connect CHUWI Hi10 X to the keyboard
We recommend getting the CHUWI tablet with the detachable keyboard. So you can type and do your school, college, or office work more comfortably.
On the bottom of the tablet, there are 2 slots to dock the device into the keyboard. There are also 5 POGO pins to support the docking to the keyboard.
The system can connect the tablet PC to the keyboard flawlessly.

Webcam & Other Features
Despite being super thin, CHUWI still includes the 5MP camera on the top backside of the unit.
There is also the 2MP Front Camera which is very useful for video conferences or online classes. Furthermore, this CHUWI Hi10 X 10.1 inch works with the dual-band WiFi utilizing the 2.4G and 5G for more connection speed.
It also has the Bluetooth version 5.0 to enhance your wireless connection, all for ultra-speed connectivity.
CHUWI Hi10 X FAQ
✅ What is the battery capacity?
It's 24.05Wh (7.4V/3250mAh).
✅ Is the keyboard backlit?
✅ Does it have the power to play AAA games?
As expected the N4100 CPU and the Intel's UHD Graphics 600 work well for simple computing jobs like school or college documents, browsing, multitasking but they are not the proper specs for intensive gaming like playing the AAA newest games.
For a gaming laptop, we strongly recommend this one from MSI, the GL65 10SFK-062 with more high-end specs or the more affordable ones, this Acer Nitro 5 with the entry-level 1650 GPU.
The model we are reviewing right now is the one without the stylus, if you need one, you will need to purchase them separately or choose the configuration that has both the keyboard and the stylus.
For the stylus, this is the H6 Stylus you can use for this 2-in-1 device;
For more general computer accesories, browse more in this page.
Overall, this 2-in-1 device has excellent build quality, adequate performance, and a nice IPS touchscreen display.
The operating system is also Windows 10 home, which is great since other 2-in-1 mini laptops at this price (and even the more pricey ones) come with the Windows 10 S mode that a lot of users dislike.
The detachable keyboard is even better than expected and performs flawlessly. In a nutshell, for this price, it is the best option out there.
A quad-core 6GB Windows 10 2-in-1 laptop for around 250? This CHUWI Hi10 X 10.1 inch tablet PC is a recommended buy.
