For those of you still searching for a Z replacement: a new clamshell console with a built-in keyboard has been announced:

http://liliputing.com/2016/01/gpd-plans-to...-trail-cpu.html

GDP has in the past already released some clamshell consoles (albeit without a keyboard), like the GPD XD, with some very positive reviews (like this: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2015/11/h...digital_gpd_xd), so this looks like an interesting project. The measurements haven't been released yet, but since it has a 5.5" display I guess it will be more or less big as an SL-C. It will ship with Windows 10 and eventually Android unfortunately; Linux support might be problematic as explained here:

http://boards.dingoonity.org/gpd-devices/p...7781/#msg137781

I hope that the designers will eventually shed some light on this. The designers are open to any comment and request on the Dingoonity forum thread posted above.
Thanks to Tomoe on #zaurus for the URL!

3D print size comparisons show the device size in similarity to GPD XD. Sounds a neat device!

Good find! So:

SL-C xx00: 124 x 87 x 25mm
GDP Win: 155 x 94 x 24mm

The GDP handheld will be then quite wider (+31 mm) and a bit deeper (+ 7 mm) than the SL-C. I would have preferred it to be smaller, but at least it should still fit into a (larger) pocket.

If you want a linux based clamshell, check out the upcoming Pyra....successor to the great OpenPandora....

Very much in the open source spirit....
