The CoreBook X is Chuwi's latest wallet-friendly laptop with a retail price of under $550 USD. Like most other models from the manufacturer, the CoreBook X prioritizes display quality and visual appeal by integrating a high resolution 3:2 2160 x 1440 display wrapped around a sleek metal alloy and plastic chassis. To keep costs under control, the system ships with slower components including a three-year old 8th generation Intel Core i5-8259U CPU instead of newer 10th gen or 11th gen parts.
Competitors in this space include other inexpensive multimedia laptops like the Honor MagicBook 14, Asus VivoBook 14, or Acer Swift 5. However, it's also clear that the CoreBook X is attempting to emulate pricier 3:2 laptops like the Huawei MateBook X Pro or the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4.
