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 first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
