MNT Pocket Reform is quite a specific device. Its biggest advantage is the aforementioned modularity and open source nature. From the very beginning, the creators provide all the schematics of the device and its components, so that everyone can access them and even create the entire project on their own. Unlike ordinary laptops, where further expansion is very limited, here we can replace everything. From the processor to all other components. We can easily expand the equipment with additional accessories compatible with the M.2 Key B connector. The Debian Linux distribution is responsible for the software here. Of course, we can install any other variant later. There is also a mechanical keyboard with keys that we can choose ourselves (Kailh Choc White or Kailh Choc Pro Red). Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 5 modules are also available. Looking at the keyboard, we will see a 15mm precision trackball with four function buttons in front of it.

The initial configuration of the device consists of a quad core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 8GB of DDR4 RAM and 128GB of onboard eMMC. The screen is a 7-inch matrix with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. We will also find a very large 8000 mAh battery, which we charge via the USB-C port. The creators claim that the link should be enough for 4 hours of work. Vivante GC7000UL is responsible for the graphic system.Therefore, the technical specifications are quite decent, but the price of the device is primarily affected by its functionality. We can easily modify and repair all equipment if necessary. The laptop costs $ 899, but if we want to order it to Poland, we will have to pay $ 1105.77, which is about PLN 4875. Admittedly, this is a very steep price for such equipment. However, looking at the money raised so far, you can see that it is still very popular. The date of shipment of parcels to customers is expected to be October 17th this year. MNT Pocket Reform can be purchased from Crowd Supply website.
