Hold your horses folks.
Don’t wanna rain on your parade, but I don’t think we’re heading in the right direction.
On paper, this device seems too similar to the V in terms of CPU performance to warrant an upgrade.
And it doesn’t seem to solve a lot of problems found in convertibles today.
The V is a revolutionary product because it did things no other device did: have the most number of ports, a wireless Bluetooth keyboard with multicolor backlighting, the best battery life, the only 2in1 which can improve CPU performance by increasing TDP or imporve battery life by reducing it, amazing audio in a 2in1, and gets almost everything else right too, at an unbeatable price.
So rather than design elements, I think coming up with “Unique Selling Points” would help us get this into consumers’ hands.
I think Eve’s approach to this was better, finalize every spec one by one, with lengthy discussions on every nitty gritty detail of the device, to get an amazing product in the end. So I’d propose several threads focusing on each and every feature of the device, starting from the CPU, GPU, screen, etc. to the tiny details that make a big difference like port placement, and then trying to add exotic features that will be more than a gimmick.
Your ideas are impressive, no doubt, and I appreciate the crazy amount of work put into the renders. And the device looks gorgeous too. But part of me wants a quad core CPU with a GTX 1050 or above, with unique features that no other device has, so I’d rework your concept. And this is just one opinion, imagine the voices of the thousands of members who call Eve home…
It seems to be similar in power to the V, and we need to do something different, we don’t need more of the same. If we did, we’d be satisfied by regular run of the mill OEM stuff. But we aren’t. We want more, we want a device that actually makes a difference in this sea of devices, devices that do more of the same. A device that is almost hand-crafted by thousands across the globe, with features that no OEM will provide, at a price that none can beat.
