With the Surface Pro 4 coming closer to its release and Windows 10 taking over the OS market as the most popular operating system in the world, smaller manufacturers are also hurrying up to take advantage of the hype around Windows 10. The Chuwi Hi8 is one of the few tablets to be launched with Windows 10 on board and if you expected to see a preamium for it, you might be wrong.
The Chuwi Hi8 is now available on Everbuying, where you can buy the dual-boot Windows 10/Android 4.4 tablet for only $95 a pop. The best part about this is that it comes with free shipping, too, so the hassle you need to go through is minimal. For what the tablet offers, that price bundled with the free shipping offer is definitely a good investment, especially for those who haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 yet or who want a good office-tablet that they can use as a daily driver.
The Chuwi Hi8 comes in as a mid-ranger or entry-level tablet, as its specs aren’t as interesting as its software and dual-boot capabilities. Nevertheless, there’s an Intel Z3736F process clocked at 2.61 GHz, which should be a powerhouse if used correctly. The tablet also comes with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of onboard storage, with a microSD card slot also available for expansion.
When it comes to the rest of the tablet, the Chuwi Hi8 is pretty basic, but pretty impressive at the same time. Its design is sleek and slim, similar to what you would expect from an iPad Mini tablet, but largely made from plastic. An 8-inch display is up front sporting a pretty good 1920*1200 resolution on a MagicColor Panel.
The camera setup of the Chuwi Hi8 is the only truly disappointing aspect of the tablet, as it only gets a bland 2 MP shooter on the rear and an even blander VGA camera on the front. The 4000 mAh battery balances things out with a pretty neat two-day battery life with moderate use on both operating systems. Overall, the Chuwi Hi8 is an extraordinary deal, for less than $100.
