[E1][T] T9 Plus as Potential Mainboard?

A project log for Tetent UMPC [gd0149]

Can I now make something better than a 2-in-1 laptop? Something that I can use outdoors?

Ahhh the day after the week-long AliExpress sale. I guess the T8-Pro N100 is back to its higher price now... wait, what's this?

My mind's background music:

So a freshly updated one has just come out and it's £4 cheaper than the T8-PRO N100 on sale but has RGB (for speed obviously). Still, unfortunately, comes with WIFI 5 / BT 4.2 when an AX210 would probably only increase their BOM by £4. I'd just get an AX210 anyway since the antennae inside the T8-Pro (which is probably unchanged in the T9 Plus) are small and stuck to the case itself. 

It's nice that there's an option without SATA for £111, but with the UK / EU £135 thing, it's £20 more to get a 1TB, 3GB/s Nvme instead. If not for that, it would've been the cheaper strategy. The  

It's also nice to know that the N100 boosts to 25W, though I expect most usage to be at 15W.

The size of the T9 Plus is 85*85*43mm. I think the extra height is just because of the RGB. I'm considering aiming for Leti to be 44*88*352mm, using the 6.3" screens that have a built in backlight to reduce thickness and development time.

[1 July] The seller just told me that the 1TB NVMe is 1800MB/s.
