Chuwi LarkBox mini PC is a 2.4 inch desktop computer. The tiny PC measures just 2.4″ x 2.4″ x 1.7″ and weighs just 127 grams (about 4.5 ounces). But it packs 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a quad-core Intel Celeron N4100 Gemini Lake processor.
While the LarkBox isn’t exactly a powerhouse (it has a 6 watt processor with Intel UHD 600 graphics), Chuwi says it can handle 4K video playback.
It also has a decent selection of ports for such a small device, including:
- 1 x HDMI
- 1 x USB Type-C
- 2 x USB Type-A
- 3.5mm audio
- microSD card reader (up to 128GB)
The LarkBox also supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0.
One other thing the little computer has? Active cooling — there’s a small fan inside the case to help keep the system from overheating. That means it won’t be silent.
Chuwi hasn’t announced a price or release date yet, but the company is giving away 4 LarkBox computers as part of a contest that ends in mid-May, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the little PC go on sale sometime around then.
Okeeeeeee… you know how much Orca is a fan of small desktop computers. My little Lenovo GagaMore is the best example as it makes me a happy penguin right now and satisfies me … within reason. 😉 Producing this blog since quite a while exclusively on GagaMore.
But as much as I admire Chuwi and their little machines, at some point the tendency to produce ever smaller computers becomes just silly one-upmanship. Why does this thing need to be so small no standard mobo will fit inside?
And no release date/price available yet? And no word about Linux comptibility??? Don’t expect me to recommend that cute little thing. Not now.
