TopJoy Falcon is another upcoming mini laptop that should deliver performance right between the Atom x5-Z8350 processor found in One Mix Yoga and the more powerful Core m3-7y30 powering the GPD device with an Intel Pentium Silver N5000 Gemini Lake processor. The device looks similar to its competitor, except it also comes with a larger 8″ display, and as a consequence a slightly larger keyboard.

TopJoy Falcon specifications:

  • SoC – Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad core “Gemini Lake” processor @ 1.10 / 2.7 GHz (Turbo) with Intel UHD graphics 605; 6W TDP
  • System Memory – 8GB RAM
  • Storage – 256GB SSD
  • Display – 8″  IPS touchscreen display with 1920 x 1200 resolution, a 360-degree hinge
  • Video Output – micro HDMI output
  • Audio – 3.5mm headphone jack, built-in speaker and microphone
  • USB – USB Type-A port, USB Type-C port
  • QWERTY keyboard + optical touch sensor placed in the middle of a split space bar, and left and right mouse buttons underneath.
  • Battery – 6,000 mAh battery that is said to offer up to 8 hours of battery life Power Supply – 12V/3A
  • Dimensions & Weight – TBD

The Windows 10 mini laptop will be launched in October (in about 56 days at the time of writing) via a crowdfunding campaign. The retail price is said to be $699, but the first 100 backers will have the opportunity to pledge $399, or a discount of $300, once the campaign launches. Since the number of rewards are limited, the company offers interested backers to pay $10 to reserve their $300 discount on the product page. At first, I found this to be a bit dodgy, but it’s optional, and if interested you could register your interest, and wait until the campaign starts to make your pledge.

    Is there a variant without Windows?

      The TopJoy web site’s OS description for their Falcon model includes (the word) Ubuntu along with Windows 10, but without further details. It could simply mean the hardware is compatible with this distro (and others built upon it).
