Abacus is a Quad Core keyboard computer with Windows preinstalled and Linux support

The Abacus Keyboard Computer, created by the Pentaform based in the United Kingdom, is a new keyboard computer that comes with Microsoft Windows installed and supports Linux if desired. The portable computer is encased inside a keyboard case made of recycled ABS plastic and has an Intel quad-core CPU and Wi-Fi 5.0 and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, as well as a 40 pin GPIO connection and a rechargeable battery that are both energy-efficient.

“You can browse, work, watch Netflix, Zoom, code, and all the usual computer stuff. Into music? Abacus Basic is also MIDI Controller Compatible. And it works right out of the box! All you need is an 18W or more PD power supply and your favorite display. Pre-installed with Windows 10 & compatible with Linux. We have been relentlessly testing our prototype with various users. We got user feedback from wide range of people including University students, office workers, and even visually impaired people. ”

If the Abacus crowdfunding campaign reaches its sought-after goal and the project runs smoothly, worldwide shipment is anticipated to begin no earlier than January 2023. To learn more about the Abacus keyboard computer system project, watch the video below. Backer early Bird pledges for the recently launched project are now available for roughly $149 or £124 (depending on current exchange rates).

The keyboard may be used without the need for Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connections thanks to Infinite Connect, allowing you to sit back on your sofa and use the keyboard without getting caught up in the wires. It is based on 2.4 GHz connectivity, which is already paired and always stays connected to your Abacus Basic.

The USB ports are neatly hidden by the keyboard's sleek design. The cables stay connected to the PC unit, so you don't have to look at your cable management. A USB power supply and a micro USB cable are all that is required to charge the keyboard and trackpad. For a full list of all available early bird pledges, stretch goals, extra media, and engineering specifications for the keyboard computer system, go to the official Abacus crowdfunding campaign website by going to this link on Kickstarter.
