If you want the best computer in the world right now, you have the option to choose between Apple’s MacBook and Microsoft’s Surface. However, both of them are shamelessly expensive and lack in one area or the other. Now though, there’s a solution to that issue from China — the Chuwi CoreBook.

The Chuwi CoreBook is a convertible 2-in-1 running Windows 10. It boasts of a 13.3-inch display with full HD resolution with an OGS laminated panel. It uses an Intel Core M 7th generation processor along with 6GB RAM and 128GB of SSD storage to power itself. It also supports 4K video hardware decoding.

The CoreBook comes with a Surface-esque detachable keyboard with a kickstand arrangement. The keyboard houses a 37Wh battery that supports fast charging. It also comes with a pen that supports 1024 pressure levels. Oh, it also uses a fingerprint sensor by the name of TouchID (does it ring a bell?).

Right now, the laptop isn’t available for sale as it will be put on Indiegogo for crowdfunding. If things go north for the company, then this shouldn’t be a bad alternative for the flagship PCs from Apple and Microsoft.
