With the i7book, Alldocube has set its sights on creating a compact laptop with an aluminium chassis and a minimal design. However, its Core i7-6600U processor is a blast from the past.

It has been a while since we reported on Alldocube, which sells an array of hardware, including tablets like the Alldocube X. Its latest laptop is intriguing, but not necessarily for the right reasons.

On the one hand, the i7Book has an aluminium build, 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a 14.1-inch IPS display. The 1080p panel supposedly has a 90% screen-to-body ratio too and a matte finish, although it is unclear how bright it gets. There is also a 256 GB SSD, albeit a slow SATA III one.

Alldocube has included a rather strange choice of processor, though. The company has gone with a Core i7-6600U, a Skylake processor that Intel released over five years ago. The 15 W processor possesses two cores, supports Hyper-Threading and can reach 3.4 GHz. Unsurprisingly, the Core i7-6600U cannot match the performance of the Core i7-10510U or even the Core i7-8550U.

The i7book has plenty of I/O, including three USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a USB Type-C. However, that cannot overcome its high asking price of US$499.99, which is simply too much for a Core i7-6600U-powered machine in 2020. If you are interested in the Alldocube i7book, then it can be purchased on Banggood.
