It’s been nearly two weeks since I published a preview of the upcoming One Netbook OneGx1 mini laptop with the design of a gaming PC and optional support for 4G and/or 5G networks. But I’ve continued running tests since that article was published, and so now I’ve upgraded the article from “preview” to “review” status.

Liliputing’s OneGx1 mini laptop review now includes benchmark results (it’s a bit faster than other 7 inch laptops, but lags behind the GPD Win Max in CPU and graphics performance). And I’ve also added some battery life notes (expect up to 9 hours of video streaming time and a lot less while gaming).

The little laptop also works pretty nicely with Ubuntu Linux. There are a few quirks, but most of the hardware is supported, including the 4G modem.

I do have at least one more update planned — the OneGx1 is designed to work with a set of optional, detachable game controllers that can hook onto the sides of the computer. One Netbook has sent me a set, but they won’t arrive for another week or two. I’ll share some thoughts once I’ve had a chance to play with them.

You can find more details in the review, or head over to GeekBuying or Banggood to pre-order a OneGx1 if you’ve got $840 or more burning a hole in your pocket.

  1. I’m thinking of getting the OneGX1 4G when those Amazon sellers, hopefully, have it shipped via Amazon Prime. I’m still debating whether to wait for the Pro or just get the GX1 for now though.

  2. Any info on One Netbook’s next One Mix model? Wondering if they’re going to add 4G options to that line as well. The OneGX1 is too chunky and the gaming looks makes it pretty ugly looking.

    I know someone in China is selling a modded One Mix 3S with 4G but I don’t trust buying from such a source.

    1. The One Mix 3 Pro with 4G would be preferable than the OneGX1 4G since it looks a lot better and less chunky. Too bad they don’t put 4G into their non-gaming UMPCs.

  3. I’m tempted to get the OneGX1 since it’s the only 7″ screen or smaller UMPC with built-in LTE.

    However, given One Netbook was talking about the OneGX having Tiger Lake but ended up releasing the OneGX1 without it because of their bad marketing and wanting to release something: Tiger Lake wasn’t even officially launched when they said the OneGX will have it.

    Now that I know there’s a better one coming, I’m hesitant to get the GX1 and wait (probably next year). It’s as ugly as the typical gaming notebook except it doesn’t perform like one. Given the specs and looks, a One Mix 3S with LTE would be more tempting but that doesn’t exist except for the hacked ones some random internet guy is selling.

    1. I was all ready to get the OneGX with 4G but then I realized it’ll be a while before I’d be back to traveling frequently and would need it. I’m thinking of just waiting for the OneGX Pro 4G. At the rate things are going, it’d be next year when I’d actually use the 4G extensively.

      I hope the Pro 4G works with Linux just was well.

    2. I’ll be waiting for the OneGX Pro LTE since I’m not going out much lately to be able to use the LTE much (mobile/travel use is my primary use case for this). With the extra time, maybe they’ll make the OneGX less ugly (ie. less gaming looks).

      Although, I wonder how much more powerful the Tiger Like version would be. That is, is the cooling design able to keep up or are they just for looks? Wondering if the Tiger Lake version will use a higher TDP SoC than the OneGX1’s 7W i5-10210Y which I believe is the SoC in the One Mix 3 Pro that has a weaker cooling system based on looks.
