At the main site,
With different main board configurations: first with ARM64 and x86 later MIPS and other architectures may follow.
The concept is to make templates which other to may use to customize and any other SOC can be used for main board.
TERES-I will come with two different LCD configurations: 1376x768 or 1920x1080 pixels.
Open Source Hardware means you will be able to tailor the PCBs to your needs and add more processors, memories, etc.
KiCAD FOSS software is used to make all the PCBs.
TERES-I will run Linux distributions, but Android and Windows also possible.
With this DIY Laptop you will learn lot of new stuff while building it. You can teach your kids electronics and how laptops are made if you build it together. You will know every bit of your laptop and will be able to fix if something is broken.
TERES-I is also environmental friendly by default - you can upgrade your main board and not waste everything when new faster and better processor is available.
Now that is what I think is a great idea. You can configure the pc to suit yourself. You can replace every bit if they fail. You can upgrade parts of the pc to suit your changing needs.
It will be interesting to see what different parts they will offer when they get underway and how much they will cost.
