The OEM is looking to secure funding via Kickstarter to launch one of the smallest Windows laptops around. The Falcon promises USB Type-C, a 1080p IPS touchscreen, and a water-resistant keyboard for what we hope will be an affordable price.

13-inch and 15-inch laptops are very popular sizes for travel and general work. Users considering an inexpensive secondary laptop for backup purposes may want a smaller display size for easier carrying. The upcoming Falcon convertible laptop from Gadget Labs aims to fit this niche with its small 8-inch screen size and modern hardware features.

Much like the popular HP Spectre x360 13, Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, and Asus Zenbook Flip, the Gadget Labs Falcon utilizes 360-degree hinges for added versatility. Unlike most netbooks, however, the Falcon also includes a full-metal chassis, water-resistant keyboard, USB Type-C port, and 1080p IPS display. The manufacturer is promising a Pentium Silver SoC that will likely be the J5005 or N5000 with integrated UHD Graphics 605. A Pentium processor should provide significantly faster performance than an Atom processor that is unfortunately very common in ultra-small laptops of this size.

Other core specifications include:

  • Intel Pentium Silver SoC
  • 8-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS touchscreen
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 256 GB SSD
  • 1x USB 3.0, USB Type-C, HDMI, 3.5 mm headphone
  • 6000 mAh battery (up to 8-hour of battery life)
  • 203 x 130.5 x 13 mm
  • 550 g

The Falcon will launch as a Kickstarter project on October 16 with hopefully more details other than the single press image provided. We will update this page as more specifications and prices become known.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
