    Because they were only able to cram in 3days of battery life with such hardware... They choosed to go lower power...

    Mine will have 2 independent hot swappable batteries and wireless connection based on quantum entanglement so it will work anywhere in the universe.

    None of those matter if we won't have 192380 threads about its keyboard.

    It doesn't need a keyboard, it can read your mind using wireless BCI.

    I heard mind readers aren't open-sourced yet. Sorry, can't use that.

    This is dead not only because it is a scam but because Intel isn't making chipsets that are small enough to put in a device like this anymore. No update for the GPD win either, x86 just isn't useful in a device this small. . .

    Oh, I thought Wade made an update on the topic about the GPD WIN 2 on dingoonity, something like... today? BTW the GPD WIN 2 will have core M-3 7y30, for the same power consumption as atom x7 8750, around 50% performances more.

    Oh, that's cool, but this is the last of Intel's mobile CPUs as the main device that would use one of these processors, a tablet, is seeing drops in sales. It looks like everyone is saying twice the power of the current chip so that's cool. I still think a computer the size of the Pandora, Payra, or GPD win is a lot more useful than a 10 inch tablet but apparently the market doesn't think so.

    This is probably ED's personal nickname for the Pyra.

    Wow... can't believe this shit is still going on. I am more and more convinced, that those guys aren't scammers but morons of epic proportions. Way too much effort for a simple scam, me thinks. They really have no idea what the hell they are doing and apparently are so self deluded that they don't even register that there are multiple projects like this failing right now, eventhough these projects have people way more experienced on board.

    This needs to be recognized somehow. Why isn't there an economic darwin award?

    Oh nice! I hope that it has clickable sticks on the next one and perhaps a stronger fan. The original gets rather hot in the hands.

    I know everyone is disappointed that the BCI fell through taking the funds for my last sca... er um.. preject.. yes project, with it but I have a new sca.. er plan to build a handheld and avoid endless keyboard threads, every key will have a tiny LCD screen in it to show what the key is mapped to be so it can have whoever layout each person wants. I just need a few thousand dollars more.

    Good news everyone for just a few million dollars more I'll be able to shrink it to GBA SP size and up the CPU and video to AMD threadripper and quad Titan Xp.
