It is currently on sale at Gearbest for only $299 (£237/AU$427), making it by far the cheapest new laptop worldwide with 512GB onboard storage.
Gone is the power hungry five-year-old Core i5-5257U, which has been replaced with the quad-core Intel Celeron J4115, reviewed in the Chuwi Larkbox.

This processor – which we predict will be one of the stealth hits of 2020 – is one of the K2’s many highlights. It has four threads, a turbo frequency of up to 2.5GHz and an Intel HD Graphics 600 graphics video sub-system. Curiously, Intel hasn’t listed it on its website yet (note: it might be down as the J4105).
There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the power button, a backlit keyboard (rimless and detachable for cleaning and replacement) and there’s even a dual-use touchpad which can be transformed into a numeric keypad simply by swiping to the right.
We like the webcam flap for added privacy, as well as the all-metal shell and aluminum alloy that keeps the laptop lightweight and cool, despite the lack of active fan – meaning this is an entirely silent laptop.
The rest of the specification is as follows: 512GB SATA M2. SSD, microSD card slot, audio connector, 8GB of DDR3 memory, 14-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, Windows 10 Pro, up to 8-hours battery life, one HDMI connector, one audio jack and two USB 3.0 ports.
