While the LarkBox mini PC maintained quite some similarities with the ECS LIVA Q2, the compact, and easy-to-carry-around Intel mini PC from CHUWI comes with certain specifications that place it some steps ahead of the ECS LIVA Q2 micro PC. The LarkBox is expected to come with smaller body size, higher efficiency Celeron processor, more storage capacity, and better video output.
