At least two new mini laptops for gamers are on the way this year. And the companies behind them have provided some new details in the last 24 hours.

Here are a few updates on the upcoming GPD Win Max and One Netbook One GX portable gaming laptops.

7/2/2020 update: The OneGX1 mini laptop is now available for pre-order from GeekBuying and Bangood, and we’ve published an in-depth OneGx1 review after testing a version with an Intel Core i5-10210Y processor and 4G LTE modem.

GPD Win Max

The GPD Win Max features an 8 inch display, an Intel Ice Lake processor with Iris Plus graphics, and game controllers above the keyboard.

GPD has provided a lot of details about the little laptop in recent weeks, but now the company has posted an official product page with more pictures and even more details. Just about all we don’t know at this point are the price, release date, and real-world performance (A crowdfunding campaign is expected to start soon though, and I’m hoping to get a pre-release review unit).

A few new things that I learned from the product page:

  • The GPD Win Max’s 8 inch, 1280 pixel touchscreen display supports up to 500 nits of brightness and 90% DCI-P3 color gamut.
  • You can adjust the TDP for the little computer’s Core i5-1035G7 processor to 15 watts, 20 watts, or 25 watts in the BIOS.
  • It comes with a 65W Gallium Nitride power adapter that measures about 3″ x 1.4″,

GPD has also shared a bunch of new pictures that give us a better idea of what the Win Max will look like:

One Netbook One GX

The One Netbook One GX is a bit more mysterious, but it’s expected to feature a 7 inch display, an Intel Tiger Lake processor with Iris Plus graphics, detachable game controllers and optional support for 4G and 5G networks.

Actually, that last bit is one of the new details announced today — previously One Netbook had let us know there would be a 5G option. But the fact that you can also choose a 4G modem is new.

In fact, the company is playing up customization options as one of the things that will help set the One GX apart from other mini-laptops… although aside from the optional suppor tfor cellular networks, the only thing One Netbook promises you’ll be able to customize is storage — the One GX will have an m.2 slot that supports up to 2TB of solid state storage.

One Netbook hasn’t provided as many details about its upcoming mini gaming laptop as GPD, so we don’t know anything about the RAM, port selection, cooling, or other features yet.

While rival GPD tends to launch its products with crowdfunding campaigns, One Netbook usually makes theirs available through retail channels right away. But it’s not clear when that will happen.

The company had originally been targeting a summer 2020 launch date for the One GX, but it’s unclear if the COVID-19 pandemic has led to any delays.

  1. I don’t understand why they aren’t using AMD 4000 CPUs. The GPU on there will completely trash the Intel ones especially at 720p. First one to incorporate a Ryzen mobile gets my $.

  2. Interested in the One GX with LTE for non-gaming UMPC use cases. I hope the fan isn’t too loud and they offer a non-gaming aesthetic. That red color is super ugly and is a deal breaker.

    Their 4G advertisement of

    say goodbye to WiFi

    is funny because I have a Surface Go LTE and I haven’t turned on its Wi-Fi for a couple years now. I have been only using LTE on this.

    1. I have the Surface Go with LTE too. Posted this on my Go while on LTE even though I’m at home sitting on my couch.

      I hope the One GX supports all of Verizon’s LTE bands. I’m considering getting it depending on what the final details are.

  3. The main reason why I’m interested in the One GX is the 4G option. Not interested in the gaming aspect. Would be nice to buy one cheaper without the attachable controllers.

    1. Same here. I don’t care about the gaming aspect of the One GX but I do care about the built-in LTE. Can’t wait to see more info on this UMPC.

    2. Hoping to know more about the One GX. Very interested in the integrated 4G. I have a concern that the device would be a bit large for what I’d like though. I’m sure it’ll still be smaller than my Surface Go LTE but I’m always looking for a smaller UMPC with built-in mobile broadband.

      I hope we can lower the target power to allow for fanless operation. I’ve gotten too used to the quiteness of a fanless PC.

      The red seems too ugly to me though. Too bad that’s popular among gamers.

  4. I would only buy if they put a camera on the back of the lid so we can scan documents and the like, such as the Microsoft Surfacebook lines of laptops. Microsoft has that right–you need cameras on modern devices!

    1. I hope the One GX has zero cameras. It should be somewhat cheaper too not needing to design them in and less parts.

  5. I was in love in netbooks, when they first showed up. Especially EEE PC line with small form factor, long battery life and a tiny, but regular keyboard. These tiny laptops from GPD or One Notebook are great, when you’re reading specs, looking from design or build quality perspective. But for me – these tiny keyboards are missing one crucial button: AltGr, which makes typing in Polish or several other languages a real P.I.T.A.
