Pentaform’s “AbacusBasic” is a Computer Inside a Keyboard

London-based start-up Pentaform is now introducing what it's calling the "world's most affordable PC," the "AbacusBasic." The computer built into a keyboard is part of the company's goal to share the magic of computing with a revolutionary personal computer compressed into a keyboard, made from recycled plastics.

Priced at $150 USD, the fully functional computer comes with Windows 10 pre-installed and features an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Cherry Trail quad-core processor (1.44 GHz/1.84 GHz Turbo Boost). Assisted by up to 2-8 GB of RAM coming from an LPDDR3 64-bit dual-channel and eMMC module for storage (16 GB-128 GB), along with μSD card (supporting up to 512 GB). The AbacusBasic is also designed with a built-in speaker and integrated trackpad.

Pentaform's AbacusBasic comes with VGA and HDMI 2.0 ports to adapt to 4K displays, 3.5mm jack with mic support, a USB-C power port, USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 ports and a gigabit ethernet port. The radio module also offers 802.11 ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2.

It is also interesting to note that the sustainable design of the AbacusBasic allows for the outer housing to be separated from the inner hardware. Allowing for the internals to be repurposed, reused or recycled, while the injection-molded biodegradable polymer exterior can be broken down and recycled.

Priced at $150 USD, the waitlist for the AbacusBasic is now open on Pentaform's website.

In case you missed it, rumors of a new Nintendo Switch Console have surfaced.
