In no way am I endorsing this product other than to say I just put down $300USD.

It looks way-cool, prolly with a less-than-good keyboard, and what the heck, any serial port in the storm...

I post now b/c I'm already #234 out of 2000 and its launch date of Feb 15 still hasn't officially arrived in the States.

I read that GPD doesn't have processors for more than 2000, but factories have a way of finding that stuff when they need to.

I bet ArchiMark already has one

That is neat!

I looked at the indiegogo site, and I was surprised that it has serial port, like you mentioned.
Also,

"The anti-shock aviation-level ABS synthetic resin LG-DOW 121H is imported from South Korea, with a thick thickness of 1mm, which is flame retardant, high-heat resistant, and V-0 fireproof, with a Rockwell hardness up to 109 R, and bending strength up to 26000kg/cm2. Its integrity rate reaches 97.63% under the 5m drop test."

appeals to me.

Do share some photos of your machine when it arrives!

Spoken like a true vintage computing aficionado.

I admit I'm resisting the overwhelming urge to pick one up, since money is a little tighter now that I'm retired and on a fixed income.

Looks neat! GPD definitely already delivered on their promises before, so I'm sure it'll be a worthy device!

Funny to see a RS232 port nowadays.. It almost seems they had space left over. I mean it makes sense since it's aimed at industry applications, but still it surprises me!
