Just to remind there is just three more days of this deal. Almost over. 

Hopefully when I have a good stock turnover, I can expand into some more brands. Looking at like Xiaomi and Acer or similar.

I'm looking forward to a mini PC running atom z8700 with active cooling and dual gigabit NICs as well as a USB 3.1 port. Would make an exceptional router.

Well I have seen some mini PCs running 8300. Very little runs 8700 yet, that I know of. Some tablets, but not many. I imagine this is due to heat design issues. Mind you mini PCs is something I've yet to get into with the store. 

I'm not sure you'll find stuff with dual gigabit NICs especially. You might find a USB 3.0 docking station that has dual NICs, or you could put USB NICs on a USB 3 hub. That would seem a lot easier. USB 3 should be able to handle it, more or less. 

I'm waiting for some decent 8500 or 8700 tablets in 8 inch, 4gb of ram and usb 3.0. Better yet core m. You know, slimline power on a one hander - the true 3 in 1. Kind of personal fantasy. Would need storage expansion like mad though. SSD really, or internal usb.  Don't ask me why, but I just fantasize about being about to carry my desktop (capable of limited gaming), in my shoulder bag with me.

3.1 can to external GPU, so it's a great platform for a mobile + desktop experience.  I think a Core M with USB 3.1 external GPU would be able to handle a lot of great games, and in some respects a z8700 MIGHT too, so that 3 in 1 experience might be here this year...

Yeah I know. No external GPU's designed for it just yet, but I have seen a prototype on the net - it has the bandwidth. And those CPUs are right up there where I want to go.

So yes, I expect this year is the year of the true 3 in 1. A dock with a built in offboard GPU would be tres awesome. Fingers crossed some manufacturers can see the vision like we can!

sallyhawkins: Can you tell me more about specifications of Chuwi Hi8 Dual Boot

Hi there :)

Well the key feature is the screen. It's crisp, bright (350 cd/m2), high res (1920 x 1200 @ 283 PPI) a pure pleasure to use. It uses a 3736F baytrail which has a higher burst speed than the standard baytrails. 2gb of ram, 32gb storage. Generally favourably reviewed.

However, I am not yet sure when I will have new stock of this. January has been unusually slow so far, and there is a new model the hi8 pro, that has a USB 3.0 port and cherry trail instead of bay trail (although their really isn't much difference between the two chips). But it may be a month or so before we see a Dual Boot version. I would guess it will be about a month. 

Hope that helps. Sorry it's not sooner!
