The company unveiled a tiny SolidRun CuBox-i 4×4, in the form of a cube with a side length of 5 cm and is available in black or white color options. About the weight is not known, but think, that he is very light. It features 4Gb of RAM and an eSATA port and claims to be “the smallest ARM quad core 4GB minicomputer. The “4×4″ refers to the device’s 4 cores and 4Gb of RAM.


However, few mini PCs come with a massive 4Gb of RAM, with a handful of devices such as the excellent UGOOS UT3S belonging to that exclusive club. Whether all 4Gb is addressable is yet to be seen, with a forum post between a Cubox user and SolidRun CTO Rabeeh Khoury suggesting that only 3.8Gb may actually be usable.
