Just order a Dell 7140 from eBay. Intel Core M for the same price.

Core M is older than the Z8300. Plus the Core M is only a dual core And clocked lower than the Quad core Z8300.
It would be nice if you can replace Windows 10 with Linux.

Uh core M > Cherrytrail Z8300 you are talking Core vs Atom quite a huge difference. I have the Cube i7 stylus with core m and it's a pretty decent machine

Avoid Intel Atom if possible.

Looks like a SD slot next to the USB 3.0 port so there may be hope for expandable memory. Other than that, I'll be getting one or 2

The #1 image in the gallery looked like a toyPad running Windows, but then the tons of ports in the other images showed how significantly more useful and future-proof it can be than the toyPad XL and even Samsung's Galaxy Tab Pro S with it's pointless limitation to 1 port like overpriced 2015 MacBook.
Well done CHUWI, yet another perfect proof that bastardized ARM tablets are overpriced jokes...

What? I'd rather this than bad quality over priced android tablets.

Teclast models are better built and better specced.
For this price you will typically get either Core M or Z8500/8700 with 8GB of RAM. Granted they will have FHD resolution panels and slightly lower capacity batteries, but that's one compromise I understand to be positive.

i have a teclast x98 air 3G that dual booted windows 8 and android...when booted into android, tablet will always give me messege about brightness being throttled due to thermel event, which dimmed my screen so much that it wasnt worth staying on android anymore...i like using android on a tablet but have since only booted into windows 8 on my teclast. no brighness throttling in windows. anyway, ive also read online that other chinese tablets have the same brightness throttling issue...and i will avoid these chinese tablets from now on.

You can also get the 7.9" version for around $110

I had a chuwi device. Poor buikd quality, and an inferior processor than stated in the "about" info! Yes, they lied about the processor in the device! Device worked ok but only lastwd a year. I wont be buying another chuwi unless they prove they have upped their game.

Chuwi is not well known yet, but never underestimate a Chinese company. Let's look at Xiaomi. Nobody knew the company before 2014. Now they jump to the top 5 of world most popular smartphone brands.
