Dear all forum members,

You might be interested in Japanese product named Portabook.

It has 8" screen (1280x768 dots), width=19 cm, height=15 cm (area is just A5-size), depth=2.3-1.5cm, weight 830g ,and with *foldable* keyboard. (see pictures and spec sheet below).
CPU Atom x7-Z8700, RAM 2GB, eMMC 32GB storage. Preinstall is Windows 10 home 64 bit ed.
Though it is much larger than clam-shell PCs like Fujitsu LOOX U/G90(Fujitsu UH900), I do not know comparable hardware's with this dimension and usable keyboard.

The spec:
http://www.kingjim.co.jp/sp/portabook/xmc10/

I posted this article because I'm trying to install Arch Linux, and have many troubles like GPD Win.
Also important is the price: now on bargain about 210 US$. I purchased two.

The main problem is that the wifi (Realtek RTL8723BS connected via SD host controller, which is reported by the Device Manager in Windows).
Other problems are no sounds, no supend or hibernate, keyboard and display instability. The last two are almost solved. (module loading order problem, and use EFIFB).

Though there is the well-known efforts (https://github.com/hadess/rtl8723bs), this driver module does not recognize the one inside this PC. The reason is that sd host controller module does not provide the entry in /sys/bus/sdio/devices/.

I would like to know if GPD Win, that is very similar architecture, users get same problems, and the how you overcame them.

With very sincerely,
NORI
