Crowd-designed convertible PC Eve V i7 costs $1,399 on Indiegogo [Update]
The company is now offering reservations for another batch of Eve Vs that will be sent out in April or May. While total prices remain the same (see below), the Eve m3 will require a down payment of $199. The i5 will need $299 while the i7 will need $399 for a reservation. Each perks package now only includes a keyboard and a two-year warranty.
The prices on Indiegogo represent a major markoff from full price — the suggested retail price of the Eve V i7 is about $2,149.
Our original story is below.
Eve-Tech’s crowd-designed “Pyramid Flipper” project, now known as the Eve V Windows 10 convertible PC is on sale with debut model prices ranging between $699 for one with an 7th generation Intel Core m3 processor inside and $1,399 for one with a tablet-grade Core i7 inside.
The 2-in-1 is one of the first to come with the Kaby Lake series of processors and is comparable or better in price to current competing products like the Samsung TabPro S, the Huawei MateBook and the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro.
Other specs (a full slate of which you can find here) include four speakers, various I/O including two full-sized USB ports and two USB-C ones (one with Thunderbolt 3) and a 48Wh battery that bests its competition and is claimed to provide up to 12 hours of “real” usage.
The going prices on these SKU packages includes Windows 10 Home, — with a $50 option to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro — “Limited edition” engraving, the V Pen stylus, an Alcantara keyboard, a lifetime 5 percent off at the Eve Store and a two-year warranty.
