Say you want a 2-in-1 tablet with the same display as the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet, but you don’t want to pay full price for Microsoft’s high-end hardware? If you’re willing to settle for a much less powerful processor, Chinese device maker Cube may have a solution.

The company has just unveiled a new 12.3 inch tablet with a 2736 x 1824 pixel IPS display and an Intel Apollo Lake processor.

It’s called the Cube iWork 3X and it should be available soon, with a Chinese price of 1999 yuan ($290), although it might sell for closer to $360 internationally.

The tablet has an Intel Celeron N3450 quad-core processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, and a 128GB solid state drive.

It features HDMI, a USB Type-C port, a microSD card slot, and an 8,500 mAh battery.

The Cube iWork 3X has a built-in adjustable kickstand that lets you prop it up on a table. It’s also designed to work with a keyboard cover, but it seems the keyboard will be sold separately.

The tablet measures 11.8″ x 7.1″ x 0.4″ and weighs weighs about 1.6 pounds.

  1. Chinese have no soul, look at the font of iWork360. That is, in a nutshell, chinese products.

    1. Just like the iPad, Surface Pro, Dell and HP computers, which are all made in China, too?

  2. Even $360 seems like quite a deal. For less than half the price of the Surface Pro 4 with the m3 chip, the Cube will only be 10% to 15% slower.

    1. I picked up the HP Spectre x2 12 for the same $360. Brad did a brief video on it awhile ago…same Core m3 as the Surface Pro 4. Couldn’t be happier with the unit, the build quality is top notch.
