The company GPD announced a fundraising for a pocket laptop GPD Pocket2 about a week ago. The required amount is $ 100 thousand, but in the meantime, almost $ 1 million was received, and there was a month left before the end of the campaign. At present, the product is at the prototype stage, the approximate date of its dispatch to customers is mid-autumn of 2018.
The older model with 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB drive will cost $ 600, with 4 GB of RAM – $ 530. A computer with a 7-inch touchscreen H-IPS-screen (1920 × 1200 pixels) will run under Windows 10. It will also receive an Intel Core m3-7y30 processor (like the new Surface Pro, developers note), HD Graphics 615 graphics, a module Bluetooth 4.1, a pair of conventional USB connectors and one Type-C. The weight of the device will be 465 grams.
On performance, it is roughly on par with the mentioned Surface Pro, and in some tasks it surpasses it.
