Cube unveiled their 13.5-inch Cube Thinker this week, which is a Windows 10 notebook, and not something with a tablet form factor, unlike the Chuwi Hi13.
The Cube Thinker is powered by choices of an Intel Core m3 “Kaby Lake” processor for 3999 Yuan or 580 USD, or an Intel Core i5 processor for 4999 Yuan. Both models have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage.
Other official specs also includes a fingerprint sensor on the touchpad, and both a full-size USB port and a USB Type C port. Remaining specs will be revealed at launch, though it is claimed by one store to only feature a 5000 mAh battery, but to at least have complete dual-band Wi-Fi cover. I am curious in particular about the pen support it is depicted as having.
This notebook will cause some headaches for Xiaomi, since it is a better value notebook than Xiaomi’s offers, but it may not interfere much with the sales of the Chuwi Hi13, since that tablet costs $200 less together with the keyboard.
