First of all I want to apologize for my English, I am a French student come to inform you of my opinion and our expectations.
I do not hide that I am one of the people who have "yelled" on your Indiegogo page and I would like to make a big point about our expectations (yet simple for one of them).
What we want :
- A real alternative to Surface Pro.
That is to say, keyboards for each country of the World, or at least the most populous.
I am French, I study and your Tablet Chuwi Surbook meets mostly my expectations. The problem is that you only offer one keyboard model, the QWERTY!
How to do since we in France need accents?
Stick stickers on? We can not because the keyboard is backlit, it will remove the functionality yet useful ...
You offer us a novelty that can not be used by everyone because of your restriction to a single and ONLY keyboard .. It's a mess .. So you just have to move a few keys so that we students Which use keyboards AZERTY, Arabic or other can use the Surbook in good conditions.
Even if you pay $ 20 more, it's not a problem.
You would be the first Chinese manufacturers to offer this kind of thing and it's certain that it will attract more people!
- A second version with a m3 processor for ~ 100 € more!
Teclast and Teclast X5 offer a 2 in 1 tablet with a m3-6y30 (good now would have to go to m3-7y30) findable at $ 500 with keyboard + stylus.
- An SSD?
Ok, using eMMC storage is a good compromise, but the eMMC takes less time than SSDs and is less efficient and impossible to change if it grills!
- And why not a fingerprint reader?
I do not know the real cost that it implies but what kind of small features like the new surface pro has is rather nice.
If you succeed in offering everything I quoted above (you can do without the fingerprint reader if it's really too costly) for about $ 600 with at least the keyboard, believe me or not but You would make a misfortune in all the universities of France to see all of Europe!
All this to tell you that your Chuwi Surbook is not completed ..
Putting a backlit keyboard is good but if it is unusable for all Europes countries because of the QWERTY keyboard it's useless and you feel like paying for something you can not Use (which is true).
I think I will cancel my order of the Chuwi Surbook on indiegogo if there is no French keyboard proposed by early July ..
I'm waiting to see more videos from you before it's released.
(PS : By cons nothing against the design the Surbook is really very pretty, the connections are correct as well as the functionality Wifi and Bluetooth.
On the other hand is the Chuwi Surbook type-c port compatible with thunderbolt-3? If not, it should be added, it is super important now to be able to plug the shelves to the screens etc!)
