The moment Eve V was put on sale on crowdfunding website Indiegogo, the initial batch of 500 units vanished, making the launch of the convertible Windows 10 a success. Its developer has established a $75,000 fixed goal that has so far raised $575,000 from 715 backers. The good news is that anyone can reserve any of Eve V’s configurations that start at $699, but they must make a downpayment of $299. The device will eventually be shipped next year in April/May.

The Eve V is “the first-ever crowd developed computer” manufactured by a Finnish company based on feedback from the Eve community. Fans wanted a device with better specs than the Surface Pro 4 but with a much lower price and Eve made it possible. So, the new convertible PC comes with the seventh-gen Intel Core i7/i5/m3 processors backed by 16GB of LDDRP3 RAM and has variants of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB of internal storage.

The Eve V has a thickness of only 8.9mm and a 12.3-inch IGZO LCD display that supports a resolution of 2736×1284 pixels and has a layer of Gorilla Glass on top of it for protection against scratches. Microsoft’s Windows Hello face recognition feature isn’t available, but the power button has a fingerprint scanner integrated.

The device has a 3.55mm port for audio, two regular USB ports, a Thunderbolt 3 port, a USB Type-C port, a microSD card reader and a 48Wh battery which should keep the Eve V alive for 12 hours.

Eve also offers the V Wireless Keyboard and the V Pen in the package and all variants of the device come preinstalled with Windows 10 Home, but users can get Windows 10 Pro for $50. The base model with a Core m3 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage costs $699, the Core i5 variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage has a price of $959, while the premium Core i7 variant with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage costs $1399.
