Your laptop is killing your creativity.

Your word count, your literary dreams, your writing practice — they all suffer when you're drafting on a device bogged down with notifications, apps, and email.

That's why we're thrilled to introduce our newest distraction-free, dedicated drafting device, Alpha.  

 

Designed for Comfort

Each feature has been carefully chosen to foster longer writing sessions so you can reach writing flow.

Blue light-free LCD display. Let your eyes rest from harsh blue light. Alpha's display is a custom fast-refresh LCD designed to our exact specifications. The screen is low power to extend battery life, right-sized for focused drafting, and reflective (it uses ambient light to improve readability in any lighting environment). 

Adaptable relief. We designed Alpha to be easy to use on your lap or at a desk. The integrated palm rest is convenient and comfortable in any position, and Alpha's built-in kickstand increases the screen viewing angle.

Satisfying mechanical keyboard. Alpha's low-profile mechanical key switches offer fantastic tactility to reduce finger fatigue and increase enjoyment.

 

Designed for Convenience

Instant on. One button to power on, and you're off to the races. No software to load, no waiting.

Lightweight & portable. Weighing in at less than 2 lbs, Alpha is lighter than most laptops, and its hi-strength plastic body is designed to be rigid and durable without adding unnecessary heft.

Long-lasting battery. Alpha's USB-C rechargeable battery and optimized hardware have helped us achieve our longest ever battery life.

Safe & secure sync. All your work is saved to the device and also syncs securely to our complimentary cloud service, Postbox. You can also sync to third-party cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and more.

 

Designed for Writers

Free from distractions, Alpha is designed from the ground up to help you do exactly one thing:

Draft now. By separating the drafting process from the editing process, you will get in writing flow and develop more prolific writing sessions.

Edit later. When it's time to edit, your drafts are available in the cloud for export into your editing software of choice.

Push your productivity forward and tap into writing joy with Alpha.

A writing prompt is a short, succinct piece of content designed to center and guide your writing session.

The prompt could be anything — a question, a statement, a theme, a premise, or even a picture. Its purpose is not to tell you what to write; it’s simply to give you something to focus on. We like to think of it like structured daydreaming. And it’s a powerful tool that can inspire and challenge writers of all levels.
