Less than a month ago, Finnish tech company Eve announced that it had begun shipping its first 2-in-1 Windows 10 hybrid device, the Eve V, to the general public. The V was also touted as the first "crowd-developed" computer, with more than a thousand people - not employed by the company - contributing in its development.
We reviewed the device, and gave it a very positive rating, praising it for its premium features, build quality, and bang for buck ratio. While thousands of people purchased the machine through the Indiegogo campaign and a flash sale a couple of weeks ago, Eve has today announced that it is once again hosting a flash sale for the V.
The Eve V was jokingly described to us as the "Surface killer" by the company's CEO in an interview. While some claim this statement to be exaggerated, the hybrid machine does pack some interesting specifications, including an excellent 12.3-inch IGZO LCD encased in an aluminum chassis, a respectable 48Wh battery, and a wide combination of ports; including two USB-A 3.0, two USB-C 3.0 - one of which has Thunderbolt 3 capabilities, which means that you can connect an external graphics card for gaming - and a micro-SDXC reader as well.
It's also rather interesting to note that all variants of the V come with a Bluetooth-enabled backlit keyboard and a decent N-trig pen with 1024 pressure levels at no extra cost.
The pricing of the Eve V models during the flash sale will be as follows:
- Eve V m3 (Intel Core m3, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD) - $959
- Eve V i5 (Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) - $1,199
- Eve V i5 (Intel Core i5, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) - $1,499
- Eve V i7 (Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD) - $1,599
- Eve V i7 (Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD) - $1,999
Eve has cautioned that only a limited quantity of V devices will be available for purchase during the flash sale, so if you're interested in procuring the machine, you're advised to act fast; all units available during the previous sale were sold in under three hours.
If you are interested in purchasing the device, you can head over to the firm's dedicated webpage here. All units ordered during this flash sale have an expected shipping timeframe of February-March.
