Cube Thinker Notebook – The Ultimate Surface Book and Notebook Hybrid

The Cube Thinker is finally here and on paper I think it will easily beat the Xiaomi Mi Air 12. It is a hybrid, a Tablet and a notebook at the same time. It also comes with a gorgeous 3K touch screen with support for Surface Book Stylus.

Some concerns:

  • Non back lit keyboard
  • Typical Chinese version of Windows 10, if you activate it expect the Product key to be invalid
  • Can get hot (70-80C+ on mild to moderate use)
  • On Gaming, easily reaches 82C (but still acceptable)
  • SATA 3 SSD, not PCI-e
  • Cannot be opened one handed, firm hinge design
  • The keyboard is non backlit, and the Xiaomi Mi Air 12 offers better keyboard and touchpad experience
