Cube iwork1X Tablet PC Windows10 OS 11.6" 1920*1080 IPS intel Atom x5-Z8350 Quad Core 4GB Ram 64GB Rom HDMI
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/32772731107/32772731107.html

 

The bundle with the keyboard comes in at about $330 delivered - should arrive before start of school term.

 

Looks like a step up from similar local models like the Asus T100 transformer, but not for high performance use.  64GB a bit tight on the storage but can add an SD card if needed.

I ordered something like this from aliexpress, worst machine ever

 

Mine was a Chuwi Hi10 10.1 had almost the same specs but a Atom x5-Z8300.  It now sits in a draw at work doing nothing.

 

It takes hours to apply a windows update and god help you if you ever need to reset it.

My icube one I got is just usable for browsing if you restrain yourself to a couple of tabs. I got the one with the pen, their mockup images of people using it for photoshop are pure fantasy, Perhaps mspaint.

China clones skimp on quality and built on the cheap at every step from design to using the cheapest transistors to the lousiest boards to the cheapest screen to the slowest flash memory and overrated cpu and gpu.

The marketing, if you ignore the Engrish is the strongest bit, although just Photoshop on the cheap ... Using pirated software perhaps, and stolen images probably

I'd recommend checking reviews. It is a mixed bag. I have a JiaYu S3 phone, which performance-wise I can't tell from my Nexus 6. The screen is actually brighter on JiaYu. I can't see why Chinese could not do the same with laptops or tablets. I have an HP windows tablet, which is totally unusable also.

Good feedback. I have/had a Dell Venue 11 pro which was also nothing but trouble, and this cube model being a new release is wise to wait for some actual reviews.
