Chuwi HiBook: Dual-boot Windows 10 and Android Lollipop

Chuwi HiBook: Dual-boot Windows 10 and Android Lollipop

Chuwi's HiBook is one of few tablets to dual-boot Windows 10 and Android Lollipop, making it a great proposition if you can't separate work and play. This budget tablet comes in at a great price, too.

To switch between OSes the tablet requires a reboot. Fortunately it performs this pretty quickly, but you should remember not to leave any work unsaved. At startup you can choose to boot Android Lollipop by pressing the volume up key, or Windows 10 by pressing volume down; if you don't make a choice the HiBook will boot into the last used OS by default. A shortcut on the Windows desktop lets you switch to Android, or if you're using Android you can tap the Switch to Windows icon in the drop-down notification bar to revert to Windows.

It's difficult to find fault in a 10in tablet that can handle most tasks and offers both Android and Windows operating systems. We strongly recommend you purchase the optional keyboard for the extra functionality it affords, including two full-size USB ports, but even without it the Chuwi HiBook is a very decent budget tablet, with acceptable performance and a decent screen.
