The 10.6 inch 2-in-1 sports a Core M Kaby Lake processor. Is the Chinese manufactured hybrid a good value?

Chinese manufacturer Cube, known for the i7 Stylus and i7 Book, has begun taking pre-orders for their new Cube Mix Plus, a laptop/tablet hybrid powered by an Intel Kaby Lake processor.

The tiny device packs some modest components. In addition to a detachable 10.6-inch 1920x1080 IPS display, the 2-in-1 is equipped with the following:

 

  • Dual-core Intel Core m3-7Y30 (1.61 GHz base / 2.6 GHz boost clock) with hyperthreading and 4 MB of L3 cache
  • Intel HD 615 onboard graphics (capable of H.265 and CP9 encoding/decoding)
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 128 GB SSD

The device can be docked on a keyboard base that includes a trackpad. The keyboard dock will be sold separately.

For connectivity, the Mix Plus sports a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a micro USB 3.0 port, and a microSD card reader. The keyboard base will provide two more USB Type-A ports, although it is unknown whether these are USB 2.0, 3.0, or 3.1.

Powering everything is a relatively small 4300 mAH battery that's quoted at up to 4 hours of use, which is not very long. Rounding out the feature set are a 5 MP rear-facing camera, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 802.11 a/g/b/n dual-band WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.

The device will come with both Windows 10 and Android pre-installed. It is currently available for pre-order through Gearbeast for US $475. Shipping dates have yet to be announced.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
