One Netbook has quietly added a new model to its line of tiny laptop computers. At first glance, the new One Mix 1S+ looks nearly identical to the One Mix 1S Yoga I reviewed last year.
Both are tiny laptop computers with 7 inch touchscreen displays, 360-degree hinges, QWERTY keyboards, and pen support.
Based on PassMark benchmark scores, that means the One Mix 1S+ should offer more than twice the performance for far less than twice the price.
That’s because Core m3-8100Y is an 8th-gen Intel Core processor with 2 CPU cores, support for 4 CPU threads, a base speed of 1.1 GHz, and turbo speeds up to 3.4 GHz. By comparison, the Celeron 3965Y is a 7th-gen, 2-core/2-thread chip with a 1.5 GHz frequency and no support for turbo boost.
Both chips have Intel UHD 615 graphics, although the version in the Core m3-8100Y chip can run a little bit faster.
Aside from the new processor, the only other real difference between the One Mix 1S+ and last year’s model is the color — the original One Mix 1S is silver, while the new version is a light blue.

Keep in mind that neither of these tiny computers has a backlit keyboard, a webcam, or a full-sized touchpad (they have optical touch sensors instead).
Another thing to keep in mind is that while there are only a handful of companies making mini PCs with screen sizes this small, they’re all based on China and offer limited customer support. So while this new model definitely looks like a step up from the version I reviewed last year, I generally advise you proceed with caution when placing an order.
