The machine does not use any fan and has the Marvell Armada 510 system on a chip (SoC) processor. Moreover, there is an infrared receiver, gigabit Ethernet port, two (2) USB 2.0 ports and a microSD slot. It is also quite flexible as it supports Linux-based software’s (e.g. Ubuntu, Debian, GeeXbox, openelec.tv) as well as Google’s Android operating system.
Using a power of just three (3) Watts, CuBox can play videos at full high definition running at 1080p. According to its developers, it is appropriately designed for high-memory, multimedia and running applications (apps). Its intended function includes serving as a home media center, thin client, XBMC console and as a tiny desktop. Those interested can get the CuBox Pro for $159 (BHD 60).
