Mini laptops like GPD are becoming more and more popular. At least, this can be seen by the fact that more and more companies are launching or at least announcing such constructions. Peakago joined this group, which announced a quite cheap device.
The project phase is early. So much so that the Croudfunding campaign on Indiegogo will be announced soon. What should make the Peakago proposal stand out? First of all, the price and possibly convertibility (not all popular mini laptops are tactile or even convertible). Apparently it will be an expense for the buyer around $ 300 (PLN 1175 after a simple conversion for the current rate). Although it is unclear whether it is a promotional price or already final.
Cheap, but with a poor CPU and good RAM
With such a low price cap, the device cannot be efficient. The processor is only the Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Cherry Trail, so a really basic CPU associated only with the most budget equipment. On the other hand, RAM will be as much as 8GB (this is not a huge value, but basically typical, but I am a duo with such an atom even astronomical). However, it would be better to reduce RAM a bit, and give a slightly better processor. The disk will receive a capacity of 128GB.
The 7 ”touch screen looks pretty good (the laptop will be folded to the other side due to convertibility, such as Lenovo Yoga or HP x360). It will probably have a 16:10 aspect ratio, because the native resolution will be 1920 x 1200 px. Other features are e.g. microHDMI, USB C, ordinary USB 3.0 connector, headphone jack, microSD reader, VGA camera, WiFi 802.11 b / g / n card, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4500 mAh battery. The dimensions are small 181 x 113.6 x 19.6 mm and weight 700 g.
On the one hand, it's nice that miniature laptops will be getting cheaper, at least the object of our message. However, Peakago may have a bad start. Price is the price, but the Atom x5-Z8350 is not optimistic.
