A Very Decent 10.1 Inch Tablet at a Great Price: Cube iWork10 Ultimate

Cube iWork10, not too bad

I have noticed that both of the major Chinese retailers are pushing Cube devices this month and I decided to poke around a bit. After about an hour of reading specs, and looking at videos I finally found a great deal for folks interested in the 10 inch class tablets!

The Cube iWork10 is a fairly decent dual-boot tablet PC at a super low price of $154! Sure, the HiBook Pro is a better device, but if you just want a super good, dual boot, 10.1 inch tablet and are on a budget, then this one may be the best deal for you. That price certainly leaves room left in the budget to get the optional keyboard or get a nice Bluetooth K480 Logitech (I know it is still available).

The specs on this device are as follows:

  • Intel Z8300 Quad Core @1.44GHz
  • 64 GB on-board storage
  • Dual boot Win 10/Android 5.1
  • microSD support up to 128 GB
  • 1920 x 1200 IPS display
  • 1 USB 2.0, 1  USB-C, 1 x HDMI
  • 7500 mAh battery

I did in fact find a video review for your entertainment …

That is all for this evening,

Tim

I am Not Sure if Anyone Out There Has Noticed the Chuwi HiBook Price Reduction on Amazon

1463184918531512662I am aware from the ads I run on here that Amazon has reduced the price on the Chuwi HiBook 10.1 inch tablet to $199.99. That my fellow tablet nuts is a decent price!

If you avoid the pitfalls of purchasing the associated keyboard at an inflated price and get yourself a Bluetooth Keyboard, you will be one happy camper!

On the other hand, you may wish to consider the Chuwi HiBook Pro that is available on Gearbest.com currently for about 4 more days, for only $197.59! The difference? A better display resolution on the the Pro, with a 2048 x 1536 display and an 8000 mAh battery which should last a bit longer than the standard model which has a 6600 mAh battery.

The choice is yours folks, but right now is the time to buy one if you have been considering it!

The Chuwi HiBook News: Edition 2

The HiBook in LogiTab mode

After having owned the Chuwi now for a bit over a week I am extremely happy with it’s performance and speed in both Windows 10 and Android.

So here I am using it again today to post on THE Tablet Test Server site using it as a very slick little notebook with my Bluetooth K480 Logitech keyboard and Logitech wireless mouse.

The only issue I have noticed was a tendency in Windows 10 for it to drop the connection, but ONLY when I am in my secret writing location having a meal. No idea why, but I still suspect that this restaurant has some wireless router issues, because they have all their connections running on the same channel, which is a huge mistake by their IT guy, but since that isn’t me, I just have to deal with it.

Other than that one minor issue I am extremely pleased with my purchase of this device and would easily recommend it to anyone shopping for a 10 inch class tablet.

I have done some testing in Android also and it appears to be very fast and plays games rather well. If you click here you can see a short video of video performance running N.O.V.A. 3. The game play was flawless although I got killed immediately as usual.

The HiBook News: This Edition, Finally Got The Server Moved!

Originally posted 2017-12-09 19:33:00.

Eventually this server will end up back on a tablet but for the foreseeable short term future I thought it best to get all the good info on here loaded up onto a full server since I am in the process of moving.

Of course that meant changing a few things such as the URL of the site which no longer contains the :8080 (port 8080) because it is no longer necessary. So if you end up getting an error on a search or from a link on Google, just remove the :8080 part of the address and all should be good.

Obviously there may be some occasional errors, but overall everything should work. I actually created the new database and edited it all on the Hi12 tablet which as usual saved the day. There really isn’t very much that it can’t do when needed.

So please remember to update your book marks and remove that :8080 from the address, thanks!

That is all for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: What To Do With An LT 2016u Netbook?

Gateway LT2016u

This video comes to us from none other than….US! I am sorry, the video is rather long and a bit rambling, but it does show that even some old equipment may be useful for something.

I actually got up very early this morning and brought along my trusty flash drive and got a newer version of Firefox to work on this ancient dinosaur! So we now have a functional Windows XP, (32 bit) spare PC for use as, uh, well, perhaps a web browsing device.

However with the 1024 x 600 display, we are not talking a great experience. The speakers also stink but if you plug in some external one the sound is excellent.

But hopefully folks will leave some comments on the YouTube channel suggesting to us what this thing might be good for. After all, a functional 10.1 inch notebook (yeah, I know, netbook), with WiFi, 3 full size USB 2.0 ports and reasonable battery life, along with a surprisingly huge hard drive (160 GB), is simply not something to toss in the trash.

So below you will find the video, sorry I sound tired but it was about 1 AM when I finally had reached my conclusions on what to do with this thing…

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!
