There is a new tiny computer in the market with 8-inch display. The Topjoy Falcon has just hit crowdfunding with a price tag of $399.
Falcon runs Windows 10 and it has an 8-inch size that strikes a balance between performance and portability. The company claims that the tiny 2-in-1 notebook can be turned into a compact tablet which is lightweight and easy to carry. The device features an ergonomic keyboard and you can put the device in your pocket.
Topjoy says that the Falcon 2-in-1 device can be easily transformed into a tablet and if you close the lid of the keyboard, it would look like a one-handed touchscreen device that makes reading and notetaking more comfortable and easier.
The tiny computer comes in two different storage configurations – 128GB or 256GB. There’s also 8GB of RAM.
The Falcon uses Intel Pentium Silver N5000 processor and it’s a good chipset for some decent power. The device should be able to run the basic apps such as Microsoft Edge, Paint 3D, Mail and others with relative ease.
The 8-inch display has a resolution of 1920×1200 resolution which is good considering the price and form factor.
