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.
