Cube i7 Book 2-in-1 Core M3 $299 Today Only, The Cheapest Skylake Tablet?

Today sees Cube kick off a huge one-day-only sale on their new flagship tablet, the i7 Book. It’s a Windows 10 2-in-1 power by a 6th generation Intel Skylake Core M3-6Y30. Best of all this tablet is aimed at artists and the like with it’s Wacom stylus support. Which allows you to draw,  write notes on the screen with ease with its 1024 pressure level support and palm rejection.

The 24-hour sale price is only $299, making it the cheapest 6th Gen Skylake Windows 10 Tablet out there. Other key specs include Intel Wireless-AC, 64GB SSD, USB 3.1 Type-C port and 4GB of RAM. The screen is 10.6-inch 1920 by 1080 pixels, so FHD, but leagues behind the likes of the Surface Pro 4 screen when it comes to pixel density and sharpness. It’s $299 price also means some corners had to be cut and it’s not covered with Gorilla Glass 4, just plain and simple soda lime glass.

The i7 Book also sports an optional ASUS Transformer stylus keyboard dock that can recline up to 120 degrees and has it’s own USB 2.0 ports making it useful as a dock.

Battery life is claimed to be 5 to 6 hours, not exactly up there with the top of the line Core M3 tablets, but at this bargain price losing an hour or two isn’t a bad trade-off for the saving.

The sale can be found here on Aliexpress.
