CHUWI, makers of affordable tablets and PCs, unveiled the LarkBox with a giveaway today. Measuring 2.4x2.4x1.7 inches, it's a full-fledged PC that can fit in the palm of your hand.
Even though CHUWI is comparing the PC to an apple, it's actually fairer to say it's the size of a mini apple. At only 2.4 x 2.4x1.7 inches and 127 grams, it's easy to mistake it for something else entirely, but make no mistake, this is a real PC you could throw in the side pocket of a bag with room to spare.
Despite its small size, the LarkBox has enough processing power to be quite the capable entertainment or productivity PC. It's running an 8th-gen Intel N4100 with integrated UHD graphics, and 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM. It even comes with a built-in 128GB SSD for rapid booting and responsive media storage.
I've used the N4100 on machines in the past and, even though it struggles with modern gaming, it's a very capable processor for streaming and emulators, and is a perfect fit for web browsing and productivity applications like the Microsoft suite. Combined with its small size, the LarkBox is shaping up to be quite an interesting choice for a media PC you can hide right on the back of your television.
CHUWI is no stranger to making compact PCs. In the last year alone, they've released the GTBox Mini PC and the pint-sized Minibook, a full laptop that only takes up eight inches of space. The LarkBox takes that trend and pushes it to the next level in a way that almost redefines how "mini" a consumer mini PC can be.
Pricing and availability haven't been revealed yet, but CHUWI is running a promotion where you can win one of the first models for yourself. Head over and sign-up for your chance to win. We'll keep you updated as we find out more.
