Have you ever visited a factory manufacturing ultraportable computers ? Today we take you along in the backstage of Gdium Liberty manufacturing, with an exclusive photo report direct live from Dongguan, China.
You'll follow the production of a Gdium step by step, from implementation of the LED lights to the placement of WiFi antenna and card, and to the test of the boot sequence on G-Key. You'll also see other finishing details such as the placement of the colour stripes around the casing and the screen protection sticker, printed to the colours of our G-Linux.
Last step is packing the box, which we have designed as a re-usable archive box that our users can keep after unpacking and use to protect and file their documents. A simple (and smart!) idea to avoid throwing away the packaging.
A special thanks to Thierry Garot, technical consultant on the Gdium Liberty hardware platform, who has taken these photos and who probably spent more time in China than at home during the last eight months!
