With an estimated price of only US$185, the NANOTE mini laptop offers modest specs like an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 quad-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. Unlike the more expensive models from GPD and One-netbook, however, the NANOTE comes in a convertible form-factor with a 1920 x 1200 touchscreen.

GPD’s latest mini laptop solutions are trying to match regular-size notebook devices when it comes to specs and performance levels, but this also means that prices will be higher. A more affordable alternative now comes from Pan Pacific International Holdings in the form of the NANOTE mini laptop, which has the added benefit of a convertible form-factor.

Besides the 360-degree hinge that converts the laptop into a tablet via a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 touchscreen, the NANOTE integrates a modest Intel Atom x5-Z8350 quad-core CPU coupled with 4 GB of RAM and a 64 GB eMMC storage card. Additionally, it comes packed with a 0.3 MP webcam, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 connections, a 5,000 mAh battery and a microSD card reader. The port selection includes 1 x USB-C port with charging capabilities, a USB-A 3.0 connector, a 3.5 mm audio jack and micro HDMI output.

Given the compact size with 1.1 lbs weight, the NANOTE does not come with a numpad and the trackpad is replaced with an optical touch sensor. The device does, however, come pre-installed with Windows 10 Home edition.

This mini convertible will initially be shipped by Pan Pacific International Holdings only in Japan for the low price of around US$185 starting May 1.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
