Anyone interested in the CuBox?
April 7, 2013 at 09:06 #6264
I hope I’m not breaking any forum rules that I don’t know about. But, I’m looking to sell a Cubox computer. Does anyone want it? I’m looking for about £130 but any offers are welcome!
Why am I selling?
I recently got a CuBox computer as a prize. But, Solid-Run, the company who make CuBox, had a few shipping delays so I decided to get a dedicated HTPC instead. Now, I have one Cubox computer that I don’t need.
What’s a CuBox?
Simply, it’s a small 2″ cubed computer. So, it’s like a Raspberry Pi but way more powerful.
You can play around with it or use it in DIY projects. You could make a XBMC console, small HTPC, Android TV, media player, home security device or an Android gaming console.
Personally, I was going to use it as a pocketable PC- I could connect it to a display and have all my documents and programs.
Now the technical stuff:
It has 1080p full HD output which it can stream and decode, HDMI out and a full gigabyte of RAM. It can use desktop class interfaces such as KDE or GNOME under Linux, all in less than 3 watt and less than 1 watt in standby.
It is a low-power ARM architecture CPU based computer with the following:
Marvell Armada 510 (88AP510) SoC with an ARM v6/v7-compliant superscalar CPU (VFPv3, wmmx SIMD and 512KB L2 cache)
Vivante GC600 OpenGL 3.0 and OpenGL ES 2.0 capable 2D/3D GPU
Marvell vMeta HD Video Decoder hardware engine
TrustZone (Security Extensions) Cryptographic Engines and Security Accelerator (CESA) co-processor
1GByte DDR3 at 800MHz
Gigabit Ethernet, SPDIF (optical audio)
Standard Infra-Red receiver for 38KHz based IR controllers.
It comes with Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 and Android 2.2 dual-boot pre-installed. It can run GeeXboX.
What’s the condition?
How much is shipping?
Free to US and UK.
What’s the price?
I wasn’t sure about this. I’m going to start at £130 including shipping. But I’m willing to negotiate so feel free to post with any price!
How do I get one?
Post on this thread with a offer and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! ThanksApril 7, 2013 at 10:29 #6265
No problem with forum rules 😉April 7, 2013 at 12:37 #6267
Thanks! Different forums have different rules so I wasn’t sure…
You wouldn’t be interested in buying, would you? 😉April 7, 2013 at 12:43 #6268
so far, no, i have already one cubox board 😉April 7, 2013 at 12:48 #6269
Could always have two… 🙂April 10, 2013 at 08:11 #6295
No-one? Any offers are welcome…April 12, 2013 at 13:26 #6305
I’m interested. $50 USDApril 13, 2013 at 18:27 #6310
Sorry for the late reply.
Thanks for the offer but $50 is way too low. I spent $236 when I bought it. And, a friend has already offered to buy it for $150 if no-one else buys it.April 21, 2013 at 05:45 #6331
I am intrested, but to be honest, i can buy a cubox for 90 EUR at solid run AND afaik geexbox get also something when i buy the cubox from the link on this site…
So if you want to sell it for 60 EUR (~50 GBP) i would buy it and donate additional 10 EUR to geexbox.
But i think nobody will buy this for 130 GBPApril 28, 2013 at 14:10 #6355
What about 100 Euros? Could you go higher? It’s brand new and the one from Solid-Run has hidden taxes and shipping costs- you pay much more than 90 euros in the end.
