        Huh, those became quite expensive. I remember them being much cheaper than that when I considered buying one a few months ago.

          What do you mean? It's the same as GPD MicroPC. Pocket3 is much more expensive.

    I'm also hunting for a small device to use in commute.
    They seem to have 2 issues:
    weird screen refresh rate of 50hz, any emulation or videos will look bad
    very bad or no Linux support.

    Very short battery live compared to old Core m or Atom cpus.

    And they're expensive for what they can do. Myself I'm looking into cheap android tablet with termux.

    but if anyone knows any new models or cheap ones I'm with op.

        honestly parting up a steam deck and building a new enclose with a keyboard might be the play. maid computer based on existing common and cheap hardware instead of mystery meat. works on 2 seperate protocols, semi decent battery life. the only way you could need more is if you want even moar battery life.

      to the best of my knowledge there are no keyboard mounts at all, even with samsmugs "DEX", imagine touting dex but you dont have a keyboard case for any of your devices.,

          then POST one.
          honestly though either way its still too big. I am looking at the winmax GPD 2 and its still 10 inches as well. the sweet spot really is thinner than that and yet the smaller GPD formfactors keyboard is unusable looking. I'd really need to do a custom lcd keyboard or try one in person to know if it's usable but I really suspect not.

            https://a.co/d/2ezA8Ln for the S9. Yes, it's expensive, no, I don't know how it is. I just use the official keyboard because I got mine for free with the thing.
            I don't know if there even is anything that'll fit what you're looking for, which is a shame because I've been interested in a tiny laptop for a while.

            well in my case I want a maid computer for maid posting ala that homosexual eli.
            something closer to a plus sized phone that can be typed on without setting it down is the most ideal form factor to me, beyond that battery life needs to be present. maybe if I get a fold this will all become moot anyway with moonlight

    Pretty unusable. Small form factors and keyboards are not very compatible. Just get a cheap 13" laptop and be done with it.

    The N100 is nearly identical in performance to an i5 4570, and with fast enough memory it’s decent enough on its own. It’s just the igpu holds it back heavily. Using one of the N100 desktop boards and adding a GPU, and in context of it being like a haswell quadcore, it’ll hold up with like a 6gb 1060 and play games well enough.
    With the igpu though it’s very limiting in regards to its graphical capability. If you’re doing stuff mostly cpu bound, it’s a great choice. Otherwise nah.

    I love mine but I don't use it for personal computing, I use it as a home server. I have a couple high capacity HDDs connected to it and use it for self-hosting a few handy things such as PrivateBin, memos, Plex, and a file server. Works great.

        Look, I don't know what to tell you.
        The thing pictured in OP is not a device made my Intel and is made by some Chinese no-name brand nobody has ever heard of, the real Intel PCs are the NUCs and stuff, they don't include keyboards or LCDs or batteries in them.

        Just because something has an Intel CPU does not mean the whole system is safe. Gotta ask yourself, who's making the motherboard? What about the rest of the system?
        In this case, it's all chinesium straight from China, from brands nobody knows.

      i really wanna try out a gpd win mini. it seems like the most versatile handheld pc besides the legion go. the built in keyboard is sweet even though the trackpad looks in an odd position. not sure if its worth having the built in keyboard for an oddly placed trackpad.
