CHUWI recently kicked off its campaign for the CHUWI LarkBox on Indiegogo. The LarkBox is an extremely tiny mini PC that's roughly the size of a baseball. In CHUWI's campaign video and images, the company shows off the PC fitting easily in the palm of someone's hand. The least expensive perk that gets you the LarkBox is the $1,201 HKD which equates to roughly $155 USD. The PC is estimated to start shipping in August 2020.
The tiny PC runs on an Intel Celeron J4115 processor and has 6GB of RAM. It supports Bluetooth 5.1 and 2.4GHz and 5Ghz Wi-Fi. It has Intel UHD Graphics 600 inside and has 128GB of eMMC storage.
It features 2 USB-A 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, an audio port, a USB-C port, and a microSD slot.
In the LarkBox's marketing material, the mini PC is shown off in people's hands and being dropped into bags easily. It only weighs 127g, so it should be easy to carry around.
As with all Indiegogo campaigns, you should make sure to do your research before committing any money to a campaign. It's also worth noting that the LarkBox's pricing is listed as $169 on the spec sheet and $155 in the perk section. You can read more about the CHUWI LarkBox on its Indiegogo page.
