Is This The World Smallest Ever Laptop?


The Trade Counter has just started stocking the GPD Pocket.

This is a 7 inch laptop (screen size) that is less than 2cm thick! It has an Intel Atom processor, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Storage. It Comes with Microsoft Windows 10!

I have 2 laptops as it is. One with a 14 inch screen that has never left the house and one with a 10.8 inch screen that is purely for travelling. I do not believe that this GPD laptop is up to so much of the stuff that the other two are capable of, such as very complex Excel Spreadsheets, some HTML/Javascript work and some adobe tools plus the usual office work such as emails, PDFs and basic Word Documents. I think it may be able to handle the office work bit and believe that the screen size might count against it for anything else.

I have been having a look around and I do not believe I have found anything that comes close. I would be delighted to know if there is anything on the market currently. Please do get in touch if you know of something.

Intrigue however has got the better of me and I can announce that I will be bringing one to the UK for my own use very soon.

Can We Replace The Local GP?


This morning I was out and about looking for new products for The Trade Counter. My “travels” as they usually do took me to a company called Xiaomi. The Trade Counter already runs a very large number and a very diverse range of Xiaomi products and they are very popular indeed with customers of The Trade Counter. They make almost everything!

This latest product that I found is called the HiPee. It looks like a pregnancy test kit. It works by the user urinating on a test strip which the HiPee then analyses against a number of markers.  However, it claims to be at more than that. This is a new type of smart health monitor. It works with various health apps for Smartphones, however I am quite concerned as to how the data is stored. Xiaomi also claims accuracy on a par with the top hospitals in China. This device is not in full production. It is thought that once it is in full production it will retail for $60 ish. Xiaomi are currently advertising this on their own crowdfunding program. The Trade Counter will probably run it for a while once it is production ready too!

Will it replace the local GP? My jury is out on this one. It could potentially save on visits to a very bad local GP or could it? I suspect here that the smart device is going too far. I think that I am not the only one that thinks along these lines on the HiPee. If this was purely marketed as a glorified device for over active couples who spend far too much time practising their baby making skills then it might have a bigger market! Or, it could take the world by storm! I do not think the doctor is replaceable by a smart device yet though.
