Reviews for the Chuwi LarkBook CWI509

76.9% Chuwi LarkBook Laptop Review: Good Looks, Poor Performance | Notebookcheck
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.
75% Chuwi LarkBook review – premium build, budget specs and affordable price
Source: Ultrabook Review English
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.

Chuwi LarkBook – sub-1-kilo 13-inch ultraportable, on a budget

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.

Comment

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


13.30":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.093 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


75.95%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
