The Chuwi LarkBox is a desktop computer tiny enough to hold in the palm of your hand, which also makes it more than compact enough to mount to the back of a monitor or hide under your desk. With a 10-watt Intel Celeron Gemini Lake Refresh quad-core processor, the LarkBox isn’t exactly a speed demon, but it’s fast enough to serve as a simple media player or general purpose computer.

First introduced last year, the LarkBox typically sells for around $200 these days. But we’re giving Liliputing readers a chance to win one for free.

Read the rules below to find out how to enter for a chance to win, but first let’s talk a little more about the prize.

What I’m giving away is the same Chuwi LarkBox mini PC that Chuwi sent me to review last summer (you can check out Liliputing’s Chuwi LarkBox review for more images, specs, and performance notes).

That means it’s a little older than the versions most stores are currently selling – it has a Celeron J4115 processor rather than Intel’s newer Celeron J4125 chip. It also means that this unit is lightly used and includes a larger power brick than the one Chuwi supplies with newer units.

But did I mention that I’m giving it away for free?

Update: This contest has now ended. 

So here’s how to enter for a chance to win:

Leave a comment on this site by 11:59PM Eastern Time on Friday, July 9, 2021.

That’s pretty much it. But here are a few rules:

  • This contest is open to Liliputing readers with a valid shipping address in the continental United States (because overseas shipping is expensive and I’m footing the bill).
  • Please leave just one comment.
  • Please us a valid email address when you leave your comment so that I have a way to get in touch if you’re selected as the winner.
  • I’ll randomly select a winner from valid entries.
  • Once that person has been contacted, they’ll have 48 hours to respond. If they don’t respond within that time, I’ll pick a new winner.
  • Writers for Liliputing and close friends and family members are not eligible to win.

Thanks again to Chuwi for providing me with this demo unit. If you’d like to buy one for yourself, the Chuwi LarkBox is currently available from several retailers including:

  1. Hm, I was thinking about getting my hands on one of these, so this giveaway could be a perfect opportunity for it 🙂

  2. I bought one for my kid to do school work on during lockdown. It is now yet another Plex endpoint in our home and works flawlessly. It even plays the Sims 4, which is important, I guess.

  3. That’s the cutest and littlest computer ever! Too bad they didn’t follow up with the same design but a better chip (and better heat dispensation).

    Good luck everyone!

  4. I generally read this blog via my RSS reader but think I’ll give this contest a try. Thanks much for the informational reporting.

  5. Thanks for doing this Chuwi LarkBox 2.4 inch mini PC giveaway! Good luck everyone!

    I’m a first time poster but long time reader!

  6. looks like a pretty great little machine. I could put it to work as a media center/ emu box!

  7. Neat little box, about on par specs-wise with my old 11″ i3-6100U laptop. One of the things for which I use the laptop is emulation of older PCs (and other old computers), hooked up to a 17″ 4:3 monitor. The Larkbox could do just as good a job as the laptop, but with less clutter.

  8. I could really use this to replace an aging unit in the living room, where small is good!

  9. Quite a few comments here, it looks like you got a bunch of readers from nowhere. Magic!

  10. I have never heard of this, but reading about it makes me reaqlly want it! So cool! Count me in, please!

  11. This would make a lovely tinker device and htpc, keep up the good work on the site, I check everyday.

  12. This is perfect, it’s so small and has amazing specs for the size

  13. I’d love to win a slightly used LarkBox with a J4115 instead of a J4125! Chuwi’s link is at https://www.chuwi.com/product/items/Chuwi-LarkBox.html and still indicates the former processor. I somehow got these processors confused with the N4500 in the Chuwi Hi10; Passmark’s comparison is interesting if perhaps predictable, the year-older, quadruple-core J4115 and J4125 processors achieving substantially higher ratings than the dual-core N4500 though lagging in single-thread performance and using ten watts rather than six — https://www.cpubenchmark.net/compare/Intel-Celeron-N4500-vs-Intel-Celeron-J4115-vs-Intel-Celeron-J4125/4227vs3679vs3667 .

  14. I have always wanted to try one of these ‘nuc’ desktops. Just wonder what it can actually handle 😉

  15. Wow! Great little machine. I’ll put my name in the hat…

  16. Interesting device. Would be cool to power on with my hands…

  17. Love the little mini computers. Been wanting to try one out for a few years!

  18. This seems like a perfect fit for an Octoprint server for my 3d printer so lets hope I win this one.

  19. Yes, please. I have an old Atom D510 that really needs replacing.

  20. I would love to win. Good luck to all, and thanks Brad for your regularly enriching content.

  21. Could totally use this to replace my ECS Liva that serves its purpose – but is horrendously under-powered.

  22. This would be an interesting box to try out Serviio media server. Minimal power consumption since the box runs 24/7.

  23. This would really fill the need for an upcoming project of mine. Wish me luck!

  24. LarkBox seems like an interesting concept, I would love to try to use it as htpc, always wanted to try it.

  25. Thank you liliputing for your giveaway, this lark box seems better than pi, hopefully got a chance to try it up.

  26. Chuwi LarkBox is an interesting small computer. Thank you Liliputing for the article.

  27. LarkBox is the first and best for the same size mini pc. My friend bought one and use it as htpc.

  28. I watched ETA Prime do a video on this. It is amazing what we can do with smaller and smaller chips.

  29. This would make for a perfect replacement of my mother-in-law’s by by ancient PC. Very nice of you to run a giveaway!

  30. Hi, Brad! I hope I get lucky with this one. I’m looking to turn it into a mini retro emulation box and HTPC.

  31. I bet it would be a awesome vintage gaming machine. Most of the classics don’t need much power at all.

  32. Seems perfect for a 4 year old. Does it run Linux? Don’t want to pay for windows on a free box if I win.

  33. Thank you for your kindness! This would be ideal to relive some classic PC games.

    Cheers

  34. I would love to use this tiny computer as a brain for a low cost air quality sensors site in southern California.

  35. This should definitely be awesome as a media player, but kinda curious how it would perform for general computing.

  36. Looking forward to these and the next generation of Jasper Lake and Elkhart lake devices that will hopefully soon follow.

  37. I’ve always wondered what a cluster of these would be like. 5-6 LarkBoxes and a gigabit switch.

  38. The Chuwi LarkBox seems to be a pretty interesting device…thank you for setting up this giveaway event…! Cheers!

  39. I can think of several Linux projects for something similar in use to a Pi this could be used for.

  40. Dear Batman: please make a miracle and make me the winner of this contest… thanks…

  41. Is like a third of it a heat sink or something? How does it keep cool? Pretty neat little guy though, lots of possible applications.

    At any rate, thanks Brad!

  42. Amazing what they can fit into such a small space for so little.

  43. This looks like an awesome little box. I’d love to work with it.

  44. This looks like a fun device to tinker around with. Might even make for a quieter streaming server than my repurposed old laptop.

  45. Cute little thing that would help in a space constrained home in florida. Ideal for running Debian Linux, of course.

  46. Wow, would a Swedish reader have a chance at winning – even if I paid the shipping cost? Fingers crossed 🤞🏽😬

    PS. Thanks for the reviews and the blog!

  47. I wish they sold more mini PC’s like these in big box stores. Some people just need something basic and not $1,000 towers to browse YouTube and read emails.

  48. Thinking about getting 100 of them and build a small Kubernetes cluster, as an on-premises extension of our AWS cloud. Hybrid-cloud is a way of cost saving. Would be nice to get a sample and try it out. Thanks!

  49. Shame about the lack of eth port but could be a good coat rack controller

  50. Ooh, I’d love to have one to test. I’ve been thinking of pitching these as disposable and hidabe network jump boxes.

  51. I’ve enjoyed the site for the last several years as well and appreciate the work you put into it.
    Sign me up for the box too! Thanks!

    1. Would definitely like to own one of these and use it as my daily PC .

  52. This is my proud comment sent from my hone in the United States of America 🇺🇸

  53. Long time reader and small computer enthusiast. I could put this to use right away! Thanks for doing this. You’re awesome!

  54. It’s great that you give the devices to the readers, it is almost like having a bit more involvement in your website!

  55. I’ve been hankering for something like this for a while to have as a media server in the living room. Just curious, if our email is tied to our commenting account, is that good enough?

  56. As a steady reader over the years. Keep up the good work and let me add, i want the box!

  57. Very nice article about Chuwi… It is one of computers considering to own. Very informative about this product. Many thanks.

  58. I have a friend working off of a Celeron based laptop held together with a binder clip and duct tape. This would be a game changer for her. If I win, she wins.

  59. I think it’s only a matter of time before mini PCs like this become more and more powerful ethics more and more relevant.

  60. I’ve always been curious to find out whether a small unit like this could be used for a home theater PC, but even if not I have other uses for it!

  61. Looks like a fun little toy to upgrade the J1800 powered Mini-PC I’m using right now. Count me in for the giveaway.

  62. Oh, this will be a cute little machine for Linux stuff. Also been meaning to get something set up for PiHole, but don’t think I have a spare RPi (and Microcenter is a pain in the ass to get to).

  63. Looks like an interesting little device. Thanks for the giveaway.

  64. I have been trying to get my hands on one of these for a while! TV Box!

  65. I could take advantage of this cute little device! Thanks for the contest.

  66. Love your blogs, including linuxsmartphones.com. Thanks for providing RSS feeds.

  67. Please me. I want to learn Linux, and it would help alot
