An entry-level configuration will launch first with Core m3 options followed by a Core i5 variant. The notebook is notable for its uncommon 3:2 3000 x 2000 resolution display.
Allen Ngo,

Teased earlier this year as a competitor to the Microsoft Surface Book, Chinese manufacturer Cube has lifted the curtains on the i35 "Thinker" notebook. Cube is promising a more powerful $700 USD SKU to come in the future with Core i5 and Nvidia 940MX options, but the initial $580 USD configuration will launch first with only a Core m3-7Y30 CPU.

The Cube i35 is unique for its 3:2 3000 x 2000 resolution IPS display not unlike the Surface Book detachable. However, the i35 is more of a traditional notebook since its display is fixed, so its design takes inspiration from both the Surface Book and the MacBook Air.

Other core specifications include 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, a 256 GB M.2 SSD, and a 51 Wh internal battery for a claimed 6-hour runtime. The system integrates both Windows Hello and a fingerprint sensor to make this one of the more inexpensive Windows notebooks with such features. Two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a USB Type-C Gen. 2 port round up the lightweight 1.5 kg chassis.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
