Chinese device maker Chuwi is probably best known for its inexpensive tablets, but the company recently launched its first laptop, and now Chuwi is getting into the tiny desktop PC space as well.

The Chuwi Hibox Hero mini PC and Chuwi LapBook 15.6 inch notebook are both inexpensive computers powered by Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Cherry Trail processors.


The Hibox Hero features 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage, dual-band 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Gigabit Ethernet, making it a little more powerful than some devices in its class… but not exactly a unique offering.

It has HDMI, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and headphone jacks and a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of removable storage.

Update: The HiBox Hero is available from Gearbest for $149 (or $130 when you use coupon code GBCWH).

Chuwi also includes an RF wireless air mouse remote control with the little computer and the system ships with Windows 10 and Android 5.1 set up to let you reboot and switch from one operating system to the other, much as you can with many dual OS tablets from Chuwi and other Chinese device makers.


Chuwi’s LapBook has similar specs, but since this is a portable device, it also includes a 10,000 mAh battery, a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a full-sized keyboard, and a touchpad. There’s also a 2MP webcam.

The 15.6 inch notebook is also a Windows-only device rather than a dual OS machine.
