Can it be considered an Ultrabook? |
A "medium-class" Ultrabook?
Or lighter and more slender than the average Laptop?
Thus "light-medium device-weight-class" Laptop?
Or is the Lapbook setting a new device-weight-class for its kind (vs other Laptops, "Yoga/180°/360°", etc..)?
Should students with lots of paper textbooks choose a Lapbook? Instead of a Chuwi Laplet? What about those using digital books and wanting portrait-mode, what should they choose? Keeping in mind whether you want active stylus support (with good hover/palm rejection, and pressure sensitivity) or not.
So the Lapbook is Chuwi's offering, a "new choice" next to their Laplet 2in1 tablets. The Lapbook 12.3 is possibly meant for Surface Pro 4 potential customers, that want the screen with lap-mode support, to have the advantage of traditional Laptops and Ultrabooks, or a "Yoga".
But should Chuwi release a Tabtop 2in1 tablet (integrated kickstand with no counterweight in the keyboard)?
Some argue that Chuwi should. And they argue that Chuwi should improve the keyboard pogo mechanism used in the Surface Pro devices and their "clones". That Chuwi should create a "hybrid keyboard" that relies on the integrated kickstand, to bring down the total weight of the Laplet by making it an improved Tabtop. And that the kickstand could use an innovation (like Acer and HP, etc..) making the tablet no thicker than otherwise, but also supporting multi-angle portrait-mode out of the box. That's their vision.
Because if you want a lighter device from Chuwi with a keyboard, lighter than their Laplet 2in1 tablets (Hi13, Hi12, etc..) you only have the option of a Lapbook from Chuwi. Or you're looking at competitors.
Let's face it, we're always looking at competitors, to know the market.
But if you don't realize the downside of either a Laptop, "Ultrabook" Lapbook, "Yoga", or a Laplet, or the requested (improved) Tabtop, you might not cover all of the use-case-scenarios you want.
