Just wanted to make sure I understood the differences between the two. It seems if you don’t need HDMI then the Book is the better option. Any thoughts?
From the specs it looks like a ~20% price difference is probably worth getting the Book.

It seems if you don’t need HDMI then the Book is the better option.
But in i7 Book you can get an HDMI output via USB Adapter 3.1 Type-C
On the batteries in i7 Stylus and i7 Book written 4500 mAh capacity, but the real capacity is 4300 mAh both.
The main differences between i7 Book and i7 Stylus:
- i7 Book has a faster processor
- i7 Book has a Wi-Fi with support 5 GHz band
- USB 3.1 Type-C port instead Mini-HDMI port
- New keyboard
Price difference is small, I think i7 Book the best option.
July 12 on the Aliexpress was selling and i7 Book price was lower than i7 Stylus!August 18, 2016 at 8:39 pm #47288

This seems to be a decent upgrade for i7 Stylus? Better keyboard in many ways, better touchpad? Wifi and bluetooth connectivity issues are gone? Wifi probably does not crash anymore when connecting keyboard? Battery is about same?
Intel AC 3165 supports WiDi, somebody tried if it works with Cube i7 Book?
