That’s Impressively …

Kyoot! 🙂

… tiny!

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.

    • I only know what’s in the article and on Chuwi’s website. Maybe,as it’s the fashion these days, CPU and Ram are soldered onto the board. No idea. :/

      I think Chuwi has much better, more nifty machines in the line-up. Only thing cool about the Larkbox is its size. The rest is a bit underwhelming methinks.
