I am shopping for an new Corebook X from Chuwi to remplace my actual ASUS Chromebook 15.6 C523N. The price is high but its perfect. He got i5

an actually reasonable budget choice if you find one at retail price. it’s a 8700k but much better value. the 8700k is much better at overclocking but a 5 ghz all core overclock is douable which is more than enough for everyone.
