Various news circulating about a new Surface Pro 4 alternative available for as little as $350, but in reality, it is not exactly what it seems. The referred model CHUWI Lapbook 12.3 is not a two-in-one like the Surface Pro 4. But if buyers are looking for a sleek designed PixelSense-type display at a very cheap rate then this could be the best thing.

According to Thurrott, several manufacturers are adapting the functionalities that Microsoft first bought through the Surface Pro series. While these cloned models are very less expensive than the Surface series, some of them hold an upper hand in terms of product offerings. One such example is the CHUWI Lapbook 12.3. The model is a standard laptop from a China-based company and not just a clone of the Surface Pro 4. This model will cost buyers an incredible lower amount of $350 when it will arrive in May.

According to Microsoft, the Surface Pro 4 offers a 12.3-inch PixelSense-like high DPI display with an aspect ratio of 3:2. The CHUWI Lapbook 12.3 also offers the same display, though it is not a two-in-one like the Surface Pro 4. This made things confused with the model being linked with the Microsoft product. It is obvious to accept that the model will not be as Premium as the Surface Pro 4 in terms of quality. But it cannot be ignored that this will cost one-third the price of Surface Pro 4.

Surface Pro 4 will be powered by the Apollo Lake Intel N3450 processor and will also have integrated Intel HD Graphics. The CHUWI Lapbook 12.3 will be carrying 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, a 2MP rear camera, USB 3.0 +2.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, a 37 Wh battery and 64 GB of internal eMMC storage with MicroSD expansion. While many crave for the Surface Pro series it is not affordable for all. With all these cheaper versions of the hybrid model coming to the market, things will definitely turn sweet for many.
