A Cube i12 reference I found when looking at the Cube i9 keyboard said it also supported a then unknown Cube i12 model. Well, it turns out this i12 is sadly not a Stylus enabled Cube i9. But a cheaper version of the Cube i9 as per GearBest’s Cube iwork12 listing. The build, screen, case with dual kickstand and keyboard is all the same. But the expensive Core M3 is out, replaced with an Atom X5 Z8300 and the 128GB SSD swapped out for a cheaper 64GB eMMC. Oh and it’s also dual boot. Cube did a similar move with the i7 and i7 Stylus. Using the same build and components only downgrading the CPU.
The rest of the specs seem unchanged, Type-C port is still there as well as the USB 3 port and Micro USB 2.0 charging. The best thing about this I think is if you don’t need a Core M3, and do basic light computing, then you have a kickstand Surface like dual boot. But it’s a bit pricey at $289 on preorder.
Do you think this cheap version of the i9 is worth it? I do, but only if the price can be lowered somewhat.
Thanks Yassine for the tip.
