It features an 8.9 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel IPS touchscreen display, a backlit keyboard, and a small touchpad below the space bar.
Overall, the MAG1 looks like a competitor to the GPD P2 Max — a mini laptop with a similar design, but which lacks the backlit keyboard.
The MAG1 will be available in at least two versions:
- Intel Core m3-8100Y/8GB RAM/256GB storage for CNY 4199 (~$590)
- Intel Core m3-8100Y/16GB RAM/512GB SSD for CNY 5199 (~$735)
Other features include an aluminum chassis, USB Type-C and USB 3.0 Type-A ports, a mciroSD card reader, a micro HDMI port and 3.5mm headphone jack, and a fingerprint sensor in the upper right corner of the keyboard.
The little laptop features an 8,600 mAh battery, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. And the computer measures 8.2″ x 5.8″ x 0.7″ and weighs about 1.5 pounds.
There’s no word on if or when the MAG1 will be available outside of China, but it’s interesting to see a growing number of companies entering the mini-laptop space that was pioneered by GPD with the launch of the GPD Pocket and GPD Win line of handheld computers a few years ago.
Update: It’s up for pre-order globally from GeekBuying, which is selling the MAG1 for $630 and up.
