One Netbook’s One Mix 2S Yoga is a pocket-sized computer with a 7 inch, full HD touchscreen display, a QWERTY keyboard that’s just (barely) big enough for touch typing, and a a convertible tablet-style design that lets you flip the screen back to switch from laptop to tablet modes.

When the little computer first hit the streets last year, it was basically available in two configurations: you could opt for a One Mix 2 Yoga with an Intel Core m3-7Y30 Kaby Lake processor or a One Mix 2S Yoga with a Core m3-8100Y Amber Lake chip.

Now there’s another option: the One Mix 2S Yoga Platinum Edition sports an Intel Core i7-8500Y Amber Lake processor. It also has 512GB of solid state storage, which is twice as much as you’d get from other models.

Those upgrades come at a price though: GeekBuying is taking pre-orders for a model with a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage for $1200.

By comparison, you can get a Core m3-7Y30/8GB/256GB model for $650 or a Core m3-8100Y/8GB/256GB model for $670.

So yeah, the Core i7 version costs almost twice as much. But it’s pretty much the only computer available in this form factor that’s available with a Core i7 chip.

Just keep in mind that it’s a 5 watt, low-power Core i7 chip, so while it should offer better performance than the Core m3 model, the difference isn’t going to be enormous.

Anyway, the One Mix 2S Platinum Edition is a limited edition model, so get em while they’re hot, I guess.

  1. ONEMIX 2S Platinium with i7-8500Y is the premium version of 7-inch “yoga” notebook. It performs 3D and CPU tests about 10-15% faster (CPU Passmark = 3900), than m3-8100Y version CPU Passmark = 3400). I decided to push it to maximum:
    – voltage of core and GPU reduced by -0.060 (using Intel XTU)
    – thermal grease replaced with Coollabolatory Liquid Pro (Galinistan, CPU only) and Arctic Silver (SDD, as CLP cannot wet it).
    – Coolabolatory Liquid Pro used to improve contact between thermal copper bone and radiator.
    Results: SHOCK!
    Stable work, and wonderful performance.
    It seems this pretty micromachine is the fastest i7-8500Y in the World now (all fastest Passmark tests are mine!)

  2. Does it have a fan or is it completely silent? Any ideas about hackintoshing it?

  3. Way too expensive. Especially considering it still only has a 6500mAh battery

      1. Not wrong though. Nearly double the price for what’s likely to be a small performance gain. If they’d doubled the RAM as well, there’d be a much more compelling case to be made for this new OM2S variant. As it is, there are few use cases where this will offer any real performance benefits over the original 2S, which makes it tough to justify the jump in price.

  4. Wow, that’s impressive. I hope they come out with an actual handheld though. That is, use while holding and using your thumbs like the GPD MicroPC.

    For my own use cases, if I need a lap/table anyway, then I’ll get something with a 10” screen like the Surface Go.
