One Netbook, a Chinese company known for making mini laptops and portable gaming computers, is gearing up to launch its first 2-in-1 tablet.
The A T1 netbook is a 13-inch Windows tablet with a detachable keyboard, built-in kickstand, and support for a pressure-sensitive pen. It’s also one of the first tablets to support an Intel Alder Lake-P processor up to 28 watts. The tablet is up for pre-order through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign with prices starting at $599 for a model with a Pentium processor, although Core i5 and Core i7 models are also available at higher prices.
If the One Netbook T1 sounds familiar, that’s because it’s essentially a new name for a tablet we’ve seen before: the VOYO VBook 2023 which was unveiled in April. One Netbook is a subsidiary of VOYO.
But now One Netbook has revealed pricing and crowdfunding details for the upcoming tablet.
So while the new tablet looks like a Microsoft Surface Pro clone, it has a lower starting price (Microsoft’s Surface Pro 8 sells for $950+) and newer hardware (the Surface Pro 8 is powered by an 11th generation Intel Core “Tiger” processor). Lake processor”).
That said, Microsoft’s tablets come with a one-year limited warranty while One Netbook, like many small Chinese companies, offers limited support for its products shipped to global customers.
A netbook says the T1 has a kickstand with a hinge that can be adjusted to any angle between 0 and 160 degrees, an aluminum-magnesium alloy chassis strong enough to withstand drops from a height of up to 5 feet, support for touch and stylus input, thanks to an active stylus that supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
