Voyo recently introduced one of an Apollo Lake mini PCs called Voyo VMac, and powered by either Intel Celeron N3450 or Pentium N4200 processor combined with 4GB RAM and 32GB eMMC flash + 128 GB SSD storage. The company will soon launch an Apollo Lake laptop based on Intel Celeron N3450 quad core processor with the same 4GB RAM + 160 GB storage configuration, and an 11.6″ display with 1920×1080 resolution.
Voyo VBook A1 laptop specifications:
- SoC – Intel Celeron N3450 quad core “Apollo Lake” processor @ 1.1 GHz / 2.2 GHz (Burst frequency) and 12 EU Intel HD graphics 500 @ 200 MHz / 700 MHz (Burst freq.); 6W TDP

The laptop will run Windows 10 Home, and ship with a power supply and a user’s manual. The laptop appears to be inspired from Lenovo Yoga models, with the expression “YOGA 2-in-1 tablet” being used in the marketing documents, and the hybrid laptop also supports tablet, tent, and stand modes. A SIM card slot is mentioned in the specs and GeekBuying blog post, but somehow 3G / 4G LTE connectivity is not discussed at all anywhere, and it is stated that “this machine has a SIM card slot, but it does not support SIM card to surf Internet or make phone call.”
GeekBuying has started to take pre-orders for $299 including shipping, with delivery scheduled in about 40 days.

“This machine has a SIM card slot, but it does not support SIM card to surf Internet or make phone call.”
Says so in on the Geekbuying page. It seems the 3g/4g card is optional ( probably a mini PCIe card of some sort ).
To be fair I think a USB stick is a much better option because you can actually swap that one out and replace it with whatever your mobile operator provides you with.
“128 MB SSD”
damn, again i traveled back in time 😛
You can put a bigger one in but for a basic OS and some stuff it’s more than enough. You could leave some of the things in the cloud I suppose or just get an extra 64 GB cheap SD card.
Really, what OS do you run that fits in 128MB? :p
Puppy and Damn Small Linux proved you can fit a desktop linux distro in 128mb. You can start off slackware or openwrt if you don’t want to go LFS.
Ah lol. Sorry, I misread that to be 128 GB 😀 That’s probably what it was meant to be.
But yes, puppy Linux would probably work with that.
Even it were 128 MB that’s enough for a basic boot partition ( UEFI fat32 ? ) I suppose and you can put a SSD or fast SD card and put the OS there.
“this machine has a SIM card slot, but it does not support SIM card to surf Internet or make phone call.” … so what is the use case then? Identification of the device/user via the SIM?
I really don’t understand why there is 32GB eMMC flash, since the hardware is capable of M.2 SSD, 32GB of eMMC flash, install OS on it ?
Because if you put the OS on 32GB of eMMC, Microsoft gives you a huge discount on the OS for these types of machines (certain screen size and CPU combo).
The machine does in fact have two M.2 slots, one seems to be a 2242 and the other 2260.
