The AMD Ryzen 7 3700U was launched in Q1 2019 for laptops, but it still performs faster than recent low-power processors such as the 10W Pentium Silver N6005 (Jasper Lake), but not quite as fast as a 15W Intel Core i7-1160G7 (Tiger Lake) processor based on Passmark results.
LarkBox X is currently sold for $399 on Amazon after ticking the box to select a $100 discount coupon.

There is a Mini PC from MinisForum that is using a 3750H and it comes with 16GB of RAM for US$475 on Amazon.
In my opinion, is a better value than this
It’s one marginally faster Zen+ quad-core against another. Shipping might make the difference though.
Reminder of the underhanded stuff Chuwi does:
I would never trust this company
There are other AMD mini PC on Aliexpress if you distrust Chuwi https://fave.co/34rmSnp
So, companies are releasing computers now with old CPU’s because there is shortage on new hardware and they need to recycle what we have right now? that seems to me. It’s ok, but do not charge as they were new, 350€ is too much, I’m sorry 🙁
