Chuwi is on a roll lately, debuting two Surface Pro rivals with high end specs and now there’s also a mini desktop looming on the horizon. The device is based on Intel Celeron Apollo Lake chipsets, not exactly surprising, since Chuwi also introduced recently a Lapbook with an Apollo Lake chipset inside.
Notebook Italia had some hands on quality time with a new HiBox Pro mini PC, that relies on an Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake processor. The newcomer uses 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage and also relies on a microSD card slot. There’s no screen obviously and the compact newcomer did leave room for a 2.5 inch SATA HDD, plus 4 full size USB ports (2 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0), as well as an USB Type C port, VGA, HDMI and Ethernet.
Chuwi HiBox Pro measures 1.4 inches in thickness, 7.3 inches in length and 5.2 inches in width. It all weighs 13 ounces and sports a curved design, much like a media player or set top box. The device is listed with Windows 10 or Ubuntu and with a Black ABS+PC build, with anti ignition protection. No trace of a price tag, but I expect it to be below $150 or even less.
