    God is in the details and you realize it only when you hold a computer in your palm. CuBox is a 2x2x2 inch feature-packed ARM computer. Running an 800MHz Marvell Armada 510 processor  (ARM7 versus the ARM11 chip in Raspberry Pi) and a microSD slot for users’ operating system flash card, CuBox promises potent performance. Laced with 1GB of DDR3 RAM, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI output, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, an eSata connector and a microUSB port for debugging and recovery purposes, CuBox delivers and how!


    Packed in a fanless infra red remote-ready framework, CuBox draws just three watts of power from its 5V power supply. The CuBox’s GPU is fully OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible and enables full 1080P HD video decoding.  This makes the miniature computer an ideal solution for the most cramped home theater set-ups. The CuBox supports any Operating system that is compatible with ARM's hardware, this includes Android, Ubuntu, and Debian.

    At $129, it's almost 5 times the price of a Raspberry Pi but a more polished look and a stylish setting makes up for the extra cash. For users who stress on seeking a solution with more finishing and good looks, CuBox is a perfect choice. The new CuBox's availability details are yet to receive an official word from the maker.
