There have been keyboard conversations on the GPD Discord. I mean can there ever be a new UMPC without a keyboard discussionI know it is a mild detail, but has there been any talk about swapping Caps and Tab?
I know from the Vortex Core keyboard experience that it really is a bit of a big deal. You can get used to having Tab sit where Caps 'should be', but it is annoying in a web page driven world to work with an obscure placement for the tab key.
The Vortex Core keyboard shipped with Caps left of A and Tab on a Fn layer of Caps. It drove everyone nuts to where Vortex changed the default mapping in a keyboard BIOS update to 'flip' them, making Tab the top layer and Caps on a Fn layer. Now new batches of the keyboard are shipped with this updated mapping.
Those are some pretty sexy specs. It's also really rare to hear about a Thunderbolt port. That means this thing can potentially support external GPUs. Crazy. Also, it's a bit unusual to hear about the battery measured in Wh vs mAh. Do you just multiply/divide by voltage to get one spec vs the other? I think that's it. Anyway, with that much beef for hardware, just how long would the battery last on this thing? Hmmm....WIN Max Specs As given to me by Wade (GPD CEO)
