The Topjoy Falcon laptop was launched on Kickstarter late last year, and was a resounding success.  468 generous backers well-exceeded the $50,000 target, raising a total of $217,753.

After the overwhelming support, Topjoy is already preparing to launch an upgraded, new model.

The new ultra-portable 2-in-1 laptop is reported to have had a few small changes.  As well as a new Intel Core m3-8100Y processor,  we know for sure that the laptop will have a fingerprint sensor built into the power button.

Apart from these two features, not very much appears to have changed from the last model.  The laptop is expected to still have a 360-degree hinge, an 8-inch display, 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.

The same keyboard design has also remained; there’s still an optical touch sensor in place of a touchpad, and the spacing of the keys is still quite far apart.

The Topjoy does have the upper hand in the competition amongst mini-laptops, though, due to its superior Amber Lake-Y processor.  The Topjoy is more powerful than its rivals GPD and One Netbook, who are also offering models with Amber Lake Processors.

Whilst not very much is planned for this model, in somewhat bigger news Topjoy is also reportedly working on a more portable 7-inch model, or a Windows on ARM model with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 4G LTE connectivity.
