You jelly?
>>
What am I looking at?
>>
You retarded?
>>
why would anyone want that on their desks?
>>
>>47543052
A $5000 or something like that freetard laptop
>>
Why have the power inlet at the front?
>>
>>47543100
Because the board was installed with the connectors on the left side instead of right.
>>
No USB type-C?
>>
>>47543100
It's one of those ultra thin mini-ITX boards. They use power bricks or wall warts.

This is just some guy who made a wood (kek) shell, installed a motherboard + wireless keyboard and is now probably boasting about how they're some innovative tech prodigy.

What a disgustingly overpriced hacked up piece of shit

just buy a fucking lemote

It's like you hate yourself

I hope you learn about stains making wood flammable

This thing isn't intended to be a consumer laptop. It's a portable electronic engineer's workstation.
>>
>>47543035
>that terrible depth of field
>chiclet design
>no monitor

Nah, commit sodoku.

Be like that asian dude on the left >>47543267 and get >>>/fit/. I don't think you're fit for computers.
>>
>>47543271

too bad nobody shilling it on /g/ would be using it for that purpose

I am actually legitimately curious what the fuck its real purpose is and why it's so expensive though.

ayy

>>47543271
>portable electronic engineer's workstation
Sure hope you got decent SPICE running up on this bitch.
>>
>>47543175
It's literally just a thinkpad keyboard, I have no doubt you can remap the keys in uboot, or if you can't yet, that a patch is not so difficult
>>47543161
The chip isn't new, obviously, but the PCB is unique, it's got a FPGA and some other goodies on it
and I doubt it's mini-ITX form factor but I don't own one soo~

Here we go.

>they're serious about the wood
>>
>>47543295
Well iirc it has an onboard FPGA, those don't run too cheap
>>
>>47543333
that doesnt look that bad to be honest
darker wood would probably go better with the keyboard though
>>
>>47543333
Is there even a practical reason for the wood?
>>
>>47543448
cred
>>
>>47543035
Is this some ghetto commodore 64 keyboard?
>>
>>47543448
It's for people who hate practical shit
most of the novenas actually bought were either board-only or came with a plastic "reverse-laptop" enclosure
>>
>>47543491
>that enclosure
Why the fuck?
Who thought this would be a good idea?
Wouldn't a regular plastic shell do?
>>
>>47543035
No. My laptop will never suffer from termite damage.
>>
>>47543448
It's more expedient and convenient to fashion a wooden case rather than:
1. Repurposing some old Thinkpad workstation (this isn't flexible)
2. commissioning a custom case for a production run of 20 cases (this is not cheap)
>>
>>47543491
I like that, its literally open hardware
>>
>there are people on /g/ so new that they've never seen this before
>>
>>47543543
I see your point.
But what bothers me the most is that the board doesn't look like it would fit in a mITX case or anything of the sort, it doesn't even have an I/O shield.
>>
>>47543035
Holy shit you fucking butcherd that routing job.
Learn to wood work
>>
>>47543517
>The first thing you’ll notice about the case design is that the screen opens “the wrong way”. This feature allows the computer to be usable as a wall-hanging unit when the screen is closed. It also solves a major hackability issue with a clamshell arrangement – it can be difficult to access the internals for hacking, as it’s blocked by a keyboard mounting plate.
>In the design shown here, you can access the internals without having to remove a single screw – in fact, the laptop opens itself for you. With the slide of a latch, the screen automatically pops open thanks to an internal gas spring. As the internals are naked when the screen is up, this is not a computer for casual home use. Another side benefit of this design is there’s no fan noise – when the screen is up, the motherboard is exposed to open air and a passive heatsink is all you need to keep the CPU cool.
>>
>>47543035
That's not terrible. If they get their economy of scale together and drop the price by about half, we might be looking at my next computer purchase.

Looks cool, anon. Thanks for the heads up.
>>
>>47543314
This, seriously what the fuck
If they needes a legacy system for their machines why not just use an old computer instead of going full hipster?
>>
>Hey Anon what's wrong?
>>My computer is buggy...
>Why? maybe you have a virus!
>>N..no .. it's got literal bugs, I think they're termites.
>>
>>47543035

>>47543804
before you make any 'jokes' about the meaning duality of the word 'bug' make sure you look up its origins
>>
>>47543267

> mac
> windows

There is just way to much innovation in this thread.
>>
>>47543907
Yes, we know. The first bug was because there was a literal bug inside one of those gigantic computers.
>>
>>47543907

oh this is from that MIT guy isn't it andrew something

Nice quads a macbook pro roasts this thing

hahaha its a mac II.

i gots tah upgrade mah ram *inserts fish here* oh noes marbles and Leonardo DaVinci popped out!
>>
I like it
>>
>>47543035
I, for one think OP has a sweet machine. Far better than a normal laptop in terms of upgradeability and user-serviceability.

Tell us OP, have you figured out a way to put a GPU in there?
>>
>>47543035
>jelly
What year is it?
>>
Tiny bit jelly.

Gives me a good idea to break apart one of my old mechanical keyboards, stick a RaspberryPI and a large capacity rechargable battery inside and make it a tote around computer.

Then again, I could just use my tablet.
>>
>>47543606
So the entire point of this is to be a "Hacker" and to have easy access for "Hacking" a fucking laptop?

This is what we get for letting normies use the internet.
>>
>>47545373
they sell laptop kits for kids that are exactly that.
I'd do it but the rpi is criminally underpowered and the one better arm soc I have only takes power through a wallwart

>>47545664
You're projecting, anon.
>>
>>47545130
It's for electronic engineers. This is a highly niche product.
>>
what's the processing power? can it be used for 3D stuff on the go? that would be nice.
>>
Super cool, OP. Wish I had the knowledge and money to make it worth having one.
>>
>>47543781
To fuck with elitist /g/entoomen like you.
>>
>>47543907
Everybody knows that and that was exactly the joke he was making. GREAT JOB BEING A DICK FOR NO REASON, ANON!
