Hi there! I’m KemoKa! I’ve been curious about the Eve V ever since I saw a video about it during Computex and it really caught my eye.
I’m a member of the Level1Techs community, which split off from Tek Syndicate about a year ago to form its own channel and platform. Coincidentally, this forum and the L1T forum are both built on Discourse, which was a pleasant surprise!
I’ve been interested in 2-in-1 machines since a couple of years ago when I bought an old Motion Computing LE1700. My thought was that I could use the tablet for drawing, since it had a wacom digitizer in the display. I quickly realized that in 2007 tablet PCs were far from ready and moved to a Thinkpad X220T, which improved performance considerably but still suffered from issues. I finally made a jump a few months ago to a Surface Pro 2. I built a case for it out of the bump case I had for the LE1700. That’s a fun story for another time.
Anyway, the Eve V caught my eye, mostly because of its use of Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type C. If this has the ability to be connected to a dock with which I can use a desktop GPU and perhaps some more esoteric things like Fibre Channel HBAs and 10Gb ethernet cards, this could be a tablet that can actually, properly replace my desktop (for things that don’t need many cores), which would be absolutely brilliant.
I’ve seen a few startups hit a brick wall before, but I reckon if this project gets a good kick in the rear, it’ll be great. Would love to get hold of the base model one day. Excited for the Eve V and looking forward to meeting and chatting with y’all!
