I think that the contribution of MaxQuality7 (message # 27) would provoke the transformation of EVE V into a giant and global phenomenon. An ultrabook available in 12", 14" and 15.6"sizes (like the failed Thinkpad Yoga 12, 14 and 15, an improved Lenovo Yoga 720), plus the minimalist and sober design -and philosophy- of EVE (to extend the range of consumers, avoiding attracting only to the gamer niche), plus the specifications mentioned by the user in question (perhaps Ryzen 7 1700X rather than the i-Core line of Intel), would lead to a super-powerful beast, an unstoppable beast-machine that would earn a place in every corner of the consumers ecosystem (consumer ultrabooks/tablets/notebooks, desktop devices, business laptops, workstations, gamers laptops, etc.) and that would detonate from inside the large conventional electronics companies hegemony. I think that is the way that EVE should follow: it is inclusive, all would fit in that model. We’ll all pay for it and use it, 'cos the price is accesible, affordable, and the price-quality rate would unleash these forces on users: that would lead EVE to take the first step in his jumping to a planetary scale, imposing his philosophy on the market. At long-term, if EVE continues to impose this philosophy, I think this would end up triggering a phenomenon of dramatic transformation in the modus operandi of the large electronics multinationals: the development, innovation and evolution of electronics will eventually be strongly defined and regulated by the preferences and needs of (who more than) us, the users. Made by us. The future is ours.
To all this, I would add something else: I think the future of technology (and particularly that of electronics) lies in open-hardware and in the implementation of highly customized, upgradable, non-fixed devices, not doomed to become immediate waste, which allow users to have a central role in transformation of their equipments by adding and replacing as many different parts as possible (parts that can be offered by the brand in question: I am sure there lies the greatest potential of a entrepreneurship to do business and grow, allowing users to grow instead of deceiving them, and assuming the challenge of allowing users to participate in the modification and diversification of the goods and services offered by the brand. In the end, the enterprise will be transformed into the people, and the people in the enterprise, gaining their fidelity and using their massive power to make that foundation advance by giant steps), thus increasing the lifespan of their acquisition and allowing (among other obvious benefits, such as diminishing ecological impact, EVE would gain ad aeternum the confidence and appreciation of that great minority defending hacking ethics and the open-source stallmanian-philosophy, which occupies a centralspace in the history of computers). I think that: if EVE makes its way through that yearn road, if EVE opts for that highway instead of trying to reach at traditional technology producers by driving on the conventional motorways, then EVE will be unstoppable, its name will be the mark of a true new generation, a new born way of making things happen, and will earn a place in memory and history -of humankind.
Combining this set of features into a single product can seem like a great challenge: I’m sure that EVE got the skills to do it on its next release, resulting in a machine able to mutate for incorporating some of the characteristics/specs/advancements present in another types/kind of models by now in the market, and why not of future releases of EVE’s next generations. Like displays, keyboards, etc. An EVEbook, a mutantbook. The immediate consequence of such an implementation would be that all those who acquired an EVE would immediately become part of EVE’s history, EVE’s future: the future is ours, we would become active protagonists of EVE becoming, forging a true society of pairs which will give unlimited possibilities to the whole community, the whole network of users.
By the way, apologies for my horrible english. I speak Spanish. Funny writing this.
