When Chinese mini PC maker One Netbook launched the One Mix 3 Pro last year, it was the first computer to ship with an Intel Core i5-10210Y processor. But that was the only processor option available at the time.

Then in January, the company added a Core i3-10110Y version to its lineup, called the One Mix 3S+ Yoga.

Now it looks like the company has quietly expanded the lineup with a One Mix 3 Pro Platinum Edition model powered by an Core i7-10510Y chip.

Every model in the One Mix 3 Yoga series mini-laptops features 8.4 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel touchscreen displays, 360-degree hinges for a convertible tablet-style design, support for an optional pressure-sensitive pen, and a backlit keyboard.

The original One Mix 3 Yoga series mini-laptops, like the one I reviewed last summer, were powered by 8th-gen Intel Core “Amber Lake-Y” processors.

But the lineup now includes at least four configurations with 10th-gen Intel Core chips:

  • One Mix 3S+ – Core i3-10110Y/8GB RAM/256GB storage
  • One Mix 3 Pro – Core i5-10210Y/16GB/512GB
  • One Mix 3 Pro Platinum Edition – Core i7-10510Y/16GB/512GB
  • One Mix 3 Pro Koi Edition– Core i7/10510Y/16GB/512GB/red chassis with Koi fish logo on the lid

One thing to keep in mind about these new processors is that they’re all 7 watt, low-power chips that Intel positions as part of the same family as its 8th-gen Amber Lake-Y processors. But the new chips do have a few advantages.

Intel’s Core i5-10210Y and Core i7-10510Y processors, meanwhile, are 4-core/8-thread chips, which sets them apart from any 8th-gen Amber Lake processors.

And while the Core i3-10110Y chip is a 2-core/4-thread processor like most of its predecessors, it supports boost frequencies up to 4 GHz, which helps set it apart from the older Core m3-8100Y chip which tops out at 3.4 GHz.

While One Netbook hasn’t posted a page for the One Mix 3 Pro Platinum Edition at its website yet, the mini-laptop is up for pre-order from GeekBuying for $1300, or from AliExpress for $1500.

It’s probably not worth that much unless you really want a 1.5 pound laptop with a Core i7 processor, because the standard One Mix 3 Pro with the same memory and storage, but a slightly less powerful Core i5-10210Y chip sells for $1000 at GeekBuying or even less at AliExpress.

Meanwhile the One Mix 3S+ is the most affordable of the bunch… although at $740 and up, it’s not exactly cheap. It’s also the only model listed above to feature a dual-core processor. The other versions have quad-core chips.

  1. I had an 8.9 inch Dell Ubuntu Netbook for a while. That 8.9 inch screen was barely big enough. I wouldn’t want a laptop with a smaller screen. For me, a 10.1 inch screen would be better.. Whatever happened to all the cheap laptops with 10.1 inch screens? There’s the Asus Chromebook Flip, but not much else.

  2. Lul, so this tiny machine has better specs in almost every way than the Macbook Air 2020? And the price is not too far off either since the i5 Air is $1100 if I remember correctly.

  3. I have the slowest, normal 3 and it is fast enough even when I turn off turbo to save battery. For my use I wouldn’t want anything faster (mostly using it for writing and basic photo editing). I had some problems with the keyboard though (it stopped working, even in bios but then after a month or so somehow repaired itself) so a warranty would be nice…

    1. Yeah, that is by far the weakest point of products from One Netbook, GPD, and pretty much anyone else who makes sub-9 inch notebooks these days. You’re sort of taking a crap shoot with quality controls and support is virtually non-existent.

      It’d be a lot easier to live with those things if the prices were lower. But it’s not like there are a lot of alternatives in this weird niche.

      1. I actually just got my three pro yesterday and something’s wrong with the screen. It’s got this weird light blue tint and only gets about 30% brightness. I actually went back to your review to see what yours look like in the video to make sure that I wasn’t imagining it. now I have to contact geek buying and get it sent back to China which will probably cost a hundred bucks. Lesson learned. I have the 2s koi edition and wanted something a little bigger but I really liked that.

  4. I hope people in China like these things, because I don’t think anyone in North America is going to buy these. I’m not spending $1000 on something like this unless a vendor in my own country is selling it, and a warranty is available and doesn’t require shipping back to China.

    I wish Lenovo would make one of these. Give it a durable plastic body, and a keyboard like the old T420 and earlier models. I’d spend $1k in as heartbeat on an 8.4 to 10 inch Thinkpad.

    1. It’d be awesome of Lenovo or any other major brand makes these modern day UMPCs instead. GPD and One Netbook devices have frequent design and QA issues with almost non-existent post-sales support.

      I would never risk $1000 USD for anything these companies make.

      1. I can confirm that GPD has no post sales support on their QA issue riddled devices. You really are risking losing hundreds of dollars buying their devices. Someone would be crazy or rich to knowingly risk $1000+ on these OEMs.

    2. Their Chinese customers are basically people wanting to play R18+ game on the go based on experience of several forums I been to.

    3. The price on these things tends to drop pretty quickly on the Chinese sellers.
      Amazon holds on to MSRP prices longer, but the advantage is that they sell an optional warranty

  5. I wouldn’t pay that much money for these.

    Any word on their work on integrating LTE. I recall them saying they’re still working on it but that was a while ago. I’d pay for the built in LTE if they add it to their lower end variants.

    1. The advantage that is very tantalizing here though is these Y-class parts are now are up to quad-core, meaning a huge performance jump!

      1. The downside of course is the pricing. They have the gall to charge more than a Surface Pro 7 while offering less performance and inferior warranty support. That’s the detractor.

        1. Instead of going quad-core, they could have just gone for higher frequencies on the dual-core. It would be roughly the same performance experience, coming from the viewpoint of a laptop.

          Where the quadcore makes sense, as a huge performance leap, is for applications that were designed and outright demand the extra threads. There aren’t many out there. However, of them, the most prominent are AAA Games.

          So I can see this quad-core as a good feature for that…. if there was some way to increase their graphics performance. The only thing that comes to mind is an eGPU solution. But this doesn’t have a proprietary solution, nor does it have a (full-speed) ThunderBolt 3 port. So it’s getting harder and harder to justify that big cost.

    2. I’ve been waiting for One Netbook to release a One Mix UMPC with LTE ever since they said they’re working on it. Let’s see if they ever get it in there.

    3. Looking to see what will replace my Surface Go LTE. Hoping to get an even smaller device if I could. If One Netbook adds LTE to their cheaper models, I’d be willing to risk less than $1000 but not more.

      Just wondering, do One Netbook’s UMPCs have the same frequency of QA and design issues as GPD (ie. hinge and battery problems on all GPD devices and others)? I assume One Netbook doesn’t have any real support just like GPD.
