Update: The Cube i9 is now listed on Aliexpress.com, the cheapest is going for $509 which is around a $50 mark up from the cost price of 2999 yuan in China. It’s cheaper than the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 M3 which sells for $899 and fingers crossed Cube will have a big sale on it like the i7 Stylus and heavily slash the price.
As a Surface Pro 4 user myself, I know it has a better build, Wireless AC, a much better screen, full Microsoft support and it includes an Ntrig stylus for that 899 dollars. But if you do want a Skylake 6Y30 for much cheaper and a USB 3.1 Type-C port it’s something to think on. I’ve preordered my i9 and will cover it here on the site as soon as I have it.
Looking at the Tmall listing today, I see there is a countdown timer for the release of the Cube i9, Cube’s new 6th Gen Intel Core M tablet. So it’s coming at the end of the month in China, 9 days from the time of this post. Hopefully online retailers like Banggood, GearBest, AliExpress etc will have it in stock and ready to ship out before Chinese New year on the 8th of Feb as things will shut down for a week then.
