Hardware designed by users

Eve V is the second device by the Eve Tech Finland, a group of end users, who develop their own hardware. After their first product, the Eve T1 tablet, the team was still unsatisfied with most devices out there. In the end over 1000 people contributed and collaborated online to craft a device called Eve V. The device is similar to Microsofts Surface Book 4, with and affordable starting price of 1399 USD.

Some of the main features include:

  • IGZO display 2737 x 1824 pixel resolution
  • Thunderbold 3 connectivity
  • 12 hours battery life
  • 7th generation Intel Core CPUs
  • Detachable Keyboard
  • Windows 10
  • up to 16 GB of RAM
  • up to 512 GB SSD
The shipping of the device will start in March / April 2017. Currently only limited information is available for daily use and its build quality.

Wouldn't it be nice if this group will design and craft a full notebook / surface book / lenovo yoga like device? It would be great to have a real competitor of the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon at some time.
