Hello mates. So I recently watched a video from Dave Lee:
about modular system of new iMac Pro. Also please read about HP Elite Slice.
These are modular, mini PCs that as a idea is great for our purpose. Eve should built a mini PC as a base for this modular tower. Not as powerful as iMac. It should has standard i7 with 2-4gb mobile GPU card (as in surface book) with basic ports. Normal mini-pc. As a module there should be:
- more ports module, slim one
- battery pack - not for traveling but as a power backup
- great audio DAC module
- external HDD or SSD or maybe HDD with cloud
- 360 speaker
- egpu card module
- maybe QI charger on top for phone
- I believe community will give you some ideas
If you want to travel you can take only mini-pc from this tower and you ready to go. Also you should consider to make a connection for old and new V to be as a base module. If you need V, you buy one, wait one year ( ) and you can connect it to this tower without mini-pc. Great system, great family of devices. There should be a stand for V on the top of this tower that will plug into TB3.
That is quite good idea for most of your new concepts. @Konstantinos please comment this.
EDIT for clean massage: All of modules can be sale and work separately but also they can create beautiful module tower for PROs. If your dream is DonaldDock believe me, i don’t want to destroy DD idea. My concept is to create common device environment. Main product should be mini-pc. It will define how big should be this module tower. If mini-pc will still be mini, mini will be also DonaldDock. All of modules will have same width and lenght. The height of the module will depend on the needs of the given module and its subassemblies. I believe that the base mini-pc will be higher than the DAC module. That’s how it should look.
That is my concept art for my V
