Even smaller than my Gateway Handbook 486 and weighs half as much. $300 on Ali Express. Intel Celeron J4125, 12 GB ram, 500 GB ssd. I got this in January 2023 for a trip to Antarctica. The cramped keyboard takes some getting used to but it's capable of doing everything I need on the road as long as I'm not doing a lot of writing. It uses almost no power, the battery runs forever and the power supply is just a little wall wart. It has many quirks, few of which are actual bugs but it does require lots of workarounds.
I use xbindkeys to get the volume and brightness keys to work. For reasons I don't yet understand you need to hold down Ctrl when using these keys.
% cat ~/.xbindkeysrc "amixer -q -c 0 set DAC 4- unmute" control + XF86AudioLowerVolume "amixer -q -c 0 set DAC 4+ unmute" control + XF86AudioRaiseVolume "amixer -q -c 0 set DAC toggle" control + XF86AudioMute "brightness +60" control + XF86MonBrightnessUp "brightness -60" control + XF86MonBrightnessDown

Note that XKB needs to be put into "mousekeys" mode for this to work. I use xkbset m for this.

The power button is located where the delete key should be, and if you press it even for an instant it shuts down. I made a little cardboard tent to put over it.
The image on the screen sometimes jumps up 20 or so pixels then drops back down after a few seconds. Doesn't really hurt anything and I have not yet investigated.
The SD card slot works but sometimes times out and becomes very slow. Mounting the card read-only seems to help.Jim Rees
