Topjoy Falcon reaches over $170K in Kickstarter funding
Apparently, people really want an 8-inch convertible laptop. After just a week in Kickstarter, the creators of the Falcon have announced over $170K in raised funds or over three times the initial goal of $50K. The Windows device is notable for its very small form factor and business-oriented features such as its 16:10 8-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, support for both Windows 10 Home and Ubuntu, and WACOM pen compatibility.
Early backers of the project can get the Falcon for $400 USD compared to its expected retail price of $700 USD. We recommend checking out our review of a pre-production unit here for more details on its specifications and features. In short, it definitely needs some work in terms of display brightness and WLAN reception that we hope will be addressed for the final retail unit.
