Introduction

Chuwi Logo

Formed in 2004, Chuwi began to rapidly grow in 2010 after they partnered with Huawei, Google, and others. In 2013, they became strategic partners with Microsoft and Intel, furthering their continued growth. However, it wasn't until 2015 when they finally entered the international market. Having now stepped onto the world stage, Chuwi seeks to expand its brand recognition while branching into new product segments.


In today's review, I take a look at what the Chuwi LarkBox has to offer. This ultra-small form factor system is equipped with an Intel Gemini Lake J4115 CPU, which is a quad-core design. It has also been paired with 6 GB of DDR4 memory, which is an upgrade over its closest competitor, the ECS LIVA Q2, and sports a SATA M.2 2242 slot for increased storage and performance. Thus, the LarkBox has more up its sleeve than you might expect. That said, while its small size is interesting (61 mm x 61 mm x 43 mm), the novelty wears off over time, so its time to take a closer look at what truly matters, which would be performance and usability.
