This one got my attention, it looks a lot like GPD Win2 I reviewed, however, it’s got so much more going for it this Netbook One Mix 2S. It’s one of the first Chinese laptops to get the new Intel Core M3-8100Y the successor to the Core M3-7Y30, it’s an 8th Gen chip with a max turbo of 3.4Ghz when thermals allow it to turbo that high. It has 8GB of RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD, 1920 x 1200p OGS touchscreen that can flip around to cover this tiny 7″ laptop into a little tablet. The little PC is fan cooled, and it even has a fingerprint reader in it. The only thing it’s really lacking is a web camera built into it.
It has stylus support and USB 3.1 type-c, and with a full-sized USB 3.0 port. The laptop runs Windows 10 and looks crazy for the size just what it’s packing in terms of hardware. Sure you’ll have the obvious issues ones I experienced with the GPD Win and Win 2, small keyboard making typing a little challenging, fan noise and a very small screen for Windows. However, this is an idea portable PC that you could plug into a larger monitor and use then if needed could be taken with you and still used.
I’ve ordered one of these to review, it’s not cheap $669 USD at Banggood. It’s on pre-order so not shipping just yet. Keep an eye out for this one. It looks crazy, I just hope the smaller size of it can handle a dual-core Core M3-8100Y without thermal throttling too much. I’ll be sure to test that as soon as I get it. And yes, Linux support!
