GPD launched its Indiegogo campaign for the GPD P2 Max. It's being advertised as the "world's smallest Ultrabook." It features an 8.9-inch touch screen display and runs on an Intel core m3-8100Y processor. The tiny ultrabook still features a full keyboard as well as support for several other input methods including a touch screen and support for a stylus.
The Indiegogo campaign launched today and has already more than doubled its goal. There are multiple versions available to backers, including variants in English and Japanese. Backers can receive the version with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $531 or can get the larger 16GB/512GB version for $705. The campaign website further breaks down the specifications of the device:
- 8.9-inch screen.
- 2560 1600 (WQXGA) resolution, 340ppi.
- Intel 8th generation core processor.
- 8~16GB memory, 256GB~512B M.2 NVMe SSD.
- fingerprint-unlock supported, QWERTY keyboard, integrated touch tablet,
- Liquid cooling tube + fan, and PC level cooling solution.
This is the second tiny laptop to launch on Indiegogo recently. CHUWI launched its campaign for the CHUWI MiniBook last week. CHUWI's tiny laptop is smaller than the GPD P2 Max but does not have a touchpad.
Our favorite computer speakers for less $100
Team Windows Central wholeheartedly recommends each of these computer speaker setups, because they all bring the NOISE and will not wound your wallet.
Bose Companion 2 Series III speakers (opens in new tab) ($99 at Dell)
If you want great sound quality and value, then you want Bose. You too can have room-filling, immersive sound, so Bose says in every advertisement.
Logitech Z313 speaker system with subwoofer (opens in new tab) ($49 at Dell)
The Z313 comes with a powered subwoofer and two satellite speakers to deliver 25 watts of total power. That's enough to fill your room and then some.
GOgroove BassPULSE (opens in new tab) ($50 at Dell)
These are clearly the coolest-looking speakers recommended here, but they're not all flash and guile – these speakers can produce amazing highs and lows, for just $50.

i'm actually really eyeing this form factor, but they should have made the screen flip-able, at least into tent mode.
Pretty cool. Reminds me of my Dell Venue 11 Pro.
It is an ultra-netbook.
I wish someone would crowd fund a WoA based 7 inch slate PHONE encased in its own leather folio typecover, add a garage for a Surface pen, give it a docking station too... a mini version of the HP Spectre Folio basically (sans the trackpad). I'd pitch in for that, and generously, in a heartbeat.
That is a decent amount of hardware in that form factor, dayum. I wonder how long the battery lasts lol.
There are laptops out there w/ better specs IMO that are less expensive except they have a slightly bigger screen. If size is a major factor for you getting one of these then I guess the price doesn't matter, and more power to you. Just my 2 cents.
