Infinity One Education is a low-cost notebooks designed for schools, for students and young students, but unlike other laptops is unique because it can be easily repaired or upgraded thanks to its modular concept, which will allow us to quickly replace some components (camera, battery, screen and so on) without having to buy a new laptop after a couple of years.
We talked about this in the past, on the occasion of its announcement earlier this year, but in recent days there have been updates: the first working prototypes are ready, but the commercial debut will not happen on September 1, 2016. One Education It is looking for financing, so that it has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise at least $ 50,000 to start production. Anyone wishing to contribute may do so with a commitment of $ 249 for a basic Infinity, rising to $ 299 after the first 48 hours.
The notebook is actually a hybrid, that is a tablet with a keyboard dock. If everything goes the right way, Infinity (on the tablet) will be equipped with a capacitive touch screen of 8.9 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, quad-core processor 1.4GHz, 8GB of expandable memory with a microSD card slot, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth and battery 7000 mAh. Much of the future of Infinity is in your hands: Depending on the funding collected, One Education will have to make choices and probably change some of its programs. For example, may change some or all of the technical specifications, as well as accessibility depending on the modules available. For now, the installed operating system is Android 5.x Lollipop with a suite of educational applications and a custom user interface, but the goal of One Education is to provide support for Linux.

The modules provide a camera, battery, screen, keyboard dock more than a basic module with CPU, memory, storage and wireless card. There is also a module “hub” that holds everything together (each component in a slot) and includes speakers and USB ports, which, unlike the rest, it will not be necessary to replace with high frequency. One Education has also thought of a removable cover, available in 7 different colors.
