Yesterday’s Cube event officially unveiled the Cube Thinker, which we know to be the Cube i35. Seems there will be two version of the notebook. The Core M3 version with a Kaby Lake Core M3-7Y30 and a new Core i5 / Nvidia 940MX version. These and two other models I have very few details on the Cube iwork5X an Apollo Lake N3450 laptop with 180-degree hinge and the Cube iwork3X another Apollo Lake, but a 2-in-1 tablet with detachable keyboard type cover.
So the Thinker i35 has that great 13.5″ 3:2 ratio screen, the same one used in the Surface Book and the Chuwi Hi13. This panel is bright, 3000 x 2000 resolution and I’ve seen it in person it’s quite stunning (as long as it’s fully laminated). The notebook has 8GB of DDR4 RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, runs Windows 10 and supports an active stylus of sorts.
Cube Thinker i35 Core M3 version:
- 3000 x 2000 IPS Touchscreen (Surface Book Screen)
- Intel Core M3-7Y30 Kaby Lake
- 8GB DDR4 RAM
- 256GB M.2 SSD
- 6 hours battery life. 51wH battery
- USB 3.1 Type-C (Displayout, charging and data)
- Fingerprint reader
- 1.5 kilos
- 2-watt speakers
- Active Stylus
A second more powerful version coming but with:
- Core i5 (6200U I can’t tell?)
- Nvidia 940MX
- Different thickness and battery size??
Release date in China the 10th of April. The price, 3999 yuan for the Core M3 version, approximately $580 USD.
And the highest spec version will be 4999 yuan for the Core i5 / 940MX, which is around $725. So it will be similar in price to the Mi Notebook 12.5″ and Mi Notebook 13″ version, but you get the better screen with touch, stylus support and fingerprint security on the Cube.
