Chuwi has increased its product line with the launch of the Chuwi GT Box mini PC. The company claims the GT Box is an affordable successor to the HiGame PC that did so well on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo. This little machine sports a veteran i3 processor, 8 GB RAM, a 256 GB SSD, and it comes in a lightweight metal case.

Chuwi has issued a press release to announce the availability of the Chuwi GT Box mini PC. This pocket rocket is supposed to be an “improved version” of the company’s HiGame PC that garnered over US$400,000 from backers in its crowdfunded campaign.

It’s not really clear how the Chuwi GT Box is “improved” but it is definitely more attainable for those on a tight budget in comparison to the higher-specced HiGame PC. The GT Box comes with a Broadwell ULV i3-5005U processor from Intel that is now over four years old, but it does offer two cores and four threads of processing power and can clock at up to 2000 MHz.

Keeping the aging SoC in company is 8 GB dual-channel RAM and a 256 GB SSD, with an SSD expansion slot being available on the Chuwi GT Box. There are four USB ports, two HDMI ports, Ethernet connection, headphone jack, and the mini PC apparently only weighs a mobile-friendly 1.3 kg/2.86 lbs. It’s currently listed on Gearbest for US$299.99, which is not a bad price if you prefer a desktop solution over an entry-level laptop with similar specifications, such as an HP 250 G5 Notebook PC.
