Cherry Mobile’s Cubix Cube Book is an Ultra-affordable 14″ Notebook!

If you’re looking for a reliable productivity laptop that isn’t going to break the bank, the recently launched Cubix Cube Book could be the one for you. Design-wise, it’s a Macbook Air clone with a matte black finish, but at just Php6,999, it’s one of the most affordable 14 inch notebooks you’ll find. It runs the latest Windows 10 and is powered by a modest 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735 quad core processor, with 2GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

There aren’t a lot of ports though. You’re stuck with just 2 USB 2.0 ports so after connecting a mouse, you’re only left with one other port for other accessories like a thumb drive or external drive. There’s also a micro SD slot where you can expand the Cubix Cube’s limited storage with an up to an extra 128GB. You can also connect it to an external display for presentations via HDMI. And finally, there’s a 3.5mm headset jack so you can listen to presentations without bothering anyone else.

Due to the limited storage and modest processor, it isn’t something I’d recommend for software programming or photo and video editing. However, if you’re a student or young professional in need of something for light browsing and office productivity tasks, the Php6,999 Cubix Cube Book should be on your shortlist. Being from Cherry Mobile’s online-only brand, you can get the Cubix Cube Book here at Lazada.

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
