Alldocube iWork GT: New Intel Tiger Lake-based convertible and Surface Pro 8 competitor launches for US$569.99
Alldocube has started selling the iWork GT, a 10.95-inch tablet that supports two detachable keyboard options. Like the Surface Pro 8, the iWork GT relies on Intel Tiger Lake processors. However, Alldocube has only included the Core i3-1115G4 and the Core i5-1135G7, not the Core i7-1185G7 that is available in the Surface Pro 8.
Also, Alldocube equips the iWork GT with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, regardless of which processor you choose. Unfortunately, upgrading the built-in PCIe SSD does not seem possible, unlike the Surface Pro 8. Additionally, the iWork GT has a 2,000 x 1,200-pixel IPS panel within a 259 x 163 x 10.58 mm chassis. According to Alldocube, the iWork GT weighs 600 g without a keyboard attached; the weight includes a 3,900 mAh battery too that the machine can recharge at 45 W.
Moreover, the iWork GT has a micro HDMI port, two USB Type-C connections, along with a USB Type-A port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a microSD card reader on its opposite side. Furthermore, Alldocube has equipped the iWork GT with five pogo pins to communicate with its detachable keyboards. Currently, Alldocube sells a magnetic option for US$65 and a maglev model for US$70 that mimics Apple's Magic Keyboard for the iPad Air 5, iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9.
In comparison, the iWork GT starts at US$569.99 for the Core i3-1115G4 edition on Banggood, which ships from Hong Kong. Alternatively, Alldocube offers the Core i5-1135G7 model for US$729.99. For reference, neither option comes with a detachable keyboard.
