China-based computer maker who kind of carved a niche in making tiny laptop, AKA ultra mobile PC (UMPC), or basically a netbook is back on Indiegogo peddling its latest tiny laptop called GPD P2 Max. Billed as the world’s smallest ultrabook, the GPD P2 Max is about the size of an iPad mini 4, measuring a puny 206 x 148 x 5.5-18 mm (8.11 x 5.83 x 0.22-0.71 inches) and yet, it claims to have “performance better than that of Apple MacBook.” That’s a pretty bold claim for something this tiny and weighing just 650g (1.43 lbs).
Its MacBook-ish magnesium alloy body is made from a process called UNIBODYU, an unibody molding methodology that achieved the streamlined look. It is a 8.9-inch laptop outfitted with 2,560 x 1,600 (WQXGA) resolution 10-point multitouch IPS display and features an 8th-generation Intel Core m3-8100Y processor (1.10 GHz, boostable to 3.40 GHz) , 8-16 GB LPDDR3 RAM, and 256-512 GB M.2 NVMe SSD. Just in case you are curious, the display has a 178-degree viewing angle and 300 nits (typical) brightness.
Other features include Corning Gorilla Glass 4, Intel UHD Graphics 615 (integrated, shared memory), a super quick fingerprint sensor (unlocks in a second), a full-size QWERTY chiclet keyboard, built-in 2MP camera (at the hinge), a 35 Wh (9,200 [email protected]) lithium polymer battery good for 8-12 hours of use, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless connectivity, Hall sensor, two USB-A ports, a USB-C port, a micro HDMI port, headphone jack, built-in microphone and speakers, and of course, it has a touchpad, albeit a very tiny one.
We thought that it is worthy to mention that the GPD P2 Max further boasts a PC-level of cooling solution by the way of liquid cooling tube and fan.
Each GPD P2 Max Ultrabook will come preloaded with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
