MSI Unveils Comet Lake Powered Cubi 5 10M Mini-PC

MSI updated its Cubi line of NUC-like mini-PCs with the new Cubi 5 10M, powered by 10th generation Core "Comet Lake" mobile processors. Measuring 124 mm x 124 mm X 53.7 mm (WxDxH), and weighing 550 g (excluding the power-brick), the Cubi 5 10M is powered by a Core i7 "Comet Lake-U" SoC (either i7-10510U quad-core or i7-10710U six-core), with its integrated UHD Graphics putting out pixels. Two DDR4 SO-DIMM slots let you drop in up to 64 GB of dual-channel memory, while your storage options are an M.2-2280 slot with both PCI-Express 3.0 x4 and SATA 6 Gbps wiring, and a 2.5-inch drive bay with SATA 6 Gbps. Connectivity includes USB 3.2 gen 1 type-C and type-A ports along the front panel, next to the audio jacks; additional type-A gen 1 ports at the rear; DisplayPort and HDMI making up the display outputs; a gigabit Ethernet interface driven by an Intel i219-V controller, and Intel AX201 WLAN card that provides 802.11ax and Bluetooth 5.0. The company didn't reveal pricing.

First one of these to come out recently that has enough USB ports.
Shame it looks so ugly...

Ancient Skylake display hardware. MSI didn't even bother with the bonus HDMI chip so it's stuck with HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2.

These things always cost too much to be appealing; Too low volume to reach real economy-of-scale pricing that we're accustomed to from the rest of the PC industry.

I guess that's why 'the company didn't reveal pricing'...
