I am not sure about the market for tiny laptop, or as some would call it UMPC (ultra mobile PC), given the current state of smartphone and tablet development, but in case you are in the market for one, here’s one for your consideration. Called GPD Pocket, this super portable full-fledged laptop features a Corning Gorilla Glass 3-protected 7-inch FHD IPS display (offering 323.45ppi, if you must really know) and it is powered by a 1.6GHz quadcore Intel Atom chip, backed by 4GB 8GB of RAM. It has 128GB of onboard storage, a QWERTY keyboard with pointing nub, a 7,000 mAh battery good for 12 hours of usage, two USB 3.0 ports (one Type-C and one Type-A), a micro HDMI output, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and both Bluetooth 4.1 and 802.11ac for connectivity.

Basically, it has everything a laptop should have, save for the trackpad which was replaced by a pointing nub and the lack of palm rest area. The innards are encased in a sleek, unibody magnesium alloy case with active cooling which measures a mere 7.09 x 4.17 x 0.73 inches (180 x 106 x 18.5 mm) and tips the scale at a little over a pound (480 grams!). GPD Pocket 7.0-inch UMPC, which supports both Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04, will be hitting up Indiegogo starting February 15, 2017, with a discounted price tag of $399. We heard the retail is going to be $599.
