Reviews for the Chuwi LarkBook CWI509
If all you want to do is email and some light browsing, then the Chuwi LarkBook might be worth a look. For anything more, a basic Core i3 system will do you better.

This notebook punches way above its class in terms of construction quality, choice in materials and design, while not compromising on the screen or inputs either. It's only built on a Gemini Lake-R Intel platform though, a slow performer for a modern Windows laptop, and that's why this LarkBook is suitable for a tight niche of potential buyers: those of you who put a major price on how your laptop looks and feels, but don't have a lot to spend for and don't expect much in terms of performance or even battery life.

Anyway, we’ll hopefully cover the LarkBook on a more detailed review in the near future, so look forward to that, as we’re in contact with Chuwi for a sample. In the meantime, get in touch down below and let me know what you think about this laptop and this class of inexpensive ultrabooks as a whole.

Intel UHD Graphics 600: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Gemini Lake series. Compared to the HD Graphics 500, the 600 offers improved display outputs. Compared to the faster UHD Graphics 605, the 600 offers less shaders at lower clock speeds.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Celeron N4120: Low power quad-core SoC from the Gemini Lake series for inexpensive notebooks. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.4 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
75.95%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
