Chinese PC maker Chuwi plans to launch a small desktop computer next month with a 10th-gen Intel Core i3-1005G1 Ice Lake processor.

The upcoming Chuwi CoreBox Pro has the same chassis as the company’s older HiGame computer, but a newer (and less powerful) processor.

It goes up for sale in mid-October for a promotional price of $399.

The Chuwi CoreBox Pro measures 6.8″ x 6.2″ x 2.9″ and features ports including:

  • 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports
  • 1 x Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C
  • 1 x HDMI
  • 1 x DisplayPort
  • 4 x USB Type-A

Inside the 2 liter case, there’s a 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD with support for speeds up to 2000MB/s, 12GB or 16GB of LPDDR4-2133 memory (the press release says 16GB, but the promotional website says 12GB), and an Intel AX200 wireless card with support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.

There’s also room for a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD.

Chuwi hasn’t announced the full retail price for its latest compact desktop PC yet, but you can sign up at the CoreBox Pro website to get a coupon that may let you pick one up for as little as $399 when it goes on sale in about three weeks.

    1. It’s not something I’d ever considered until a few days ago when a friend mentioned that he was experimenting with one on his website. I’m going to see how that works out for him before deciding whether it’s worth the overhead of adding the option to Liliputing.

      So… I guess it’s on my radar?

  1. My Larkbox bricked with a simple bios change (set OS to linux, loose your USB, HDMI, etc with no way to reset) and Chuwi doesn’t answer emails or their own support forums, so I’m screwed.

    Chuwi = Buyer Beware

    1. Well these Chinese D list tablet/PC manufacturers always have a terrible track record on customer support. Most tablets they manufacture couldn’t last more than 6 months based on what I saw on those forums.
