Chuwi Surbook has exceeded all limits on Indiegogo. As of this writing, the Chinese-based company has raised $298,131 USD supported by 807 backers. The original goal was to raise $30,000 and now the limit has crossed by 994 percent. You can still place your order since nearly one month is left for the campaign to end.

If you compare Chuwi Surbook with Microsoft Surface Pro, you will find that the Surface Pro is expensive with the standard model starting at $799. If you need to buy a type cover and pen, you will have to pay $129 for the type cover and $99 for the pen. Moreover, if you want the type cover with Alcantara fabric, you will have to pay $30 extra. Hence, you will have to spend $1057 to purchase Microsoft Surface Pro.
