10 years ago there were netbooks, compact laptops, which for three years became popular, and then for a couple of years have sunk to the bottom and disappeared from the market. Now, however, the demand for them has appeared again, and, moreover, is very high, as seen in the example of a startup GPD Pocket.
GPD Pocket is a 7-inch netbook, promoted on the portal Indiegogo has a number of obvious advantages against only one drawback — a gadget with a 7-inch screen very difficult to use when working on the Internet and with documents, and let him have Full HD resolution. The advantages of the GPD Pocket can be attributed to the presence of two OS — Windows 10 from Microsoft and one of the most popular Linux distributions, Ubuntu.
In just 7 hours on the production GPD Pocket has collected $ 200,000, which already exceeds the requested amount, so that in June, the mobile computer will go on sale at a price of 400 USD. Of course, the wildest is expensive for its configuration which includes the processor Intel Atom x7-Z8700 generation Cherry Trail, 128 GB of internal memory (no SSD) and 4GB of memory. Overpayment is, of course, for Full HD screen of small dimensions, and can be attributed to the presence of a battery capacity of 7000 mAh. By the way, the GPD Pocket no touchpad was replaced a joystick, which is a highly questionable solution from the point of view of ergonomics.
