    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)
    eSata 3Gbps
    2xUSB 2.0
    Micro-SD
    Micro-USB (console)
    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?

    Brand new.

    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! Thanks

    You wouldn’t be interested in buying, would you? ;)

    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.

    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 GBP

    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.
