The One Netbook A1 Pro is portable computer that can be used as a mini-laptop, a handheld, or a tablet. Powered by an 11th-gen Intel Core processor, the computer has a 7 inch full HD display and a hinge that allows you to fold the screen over the keyboard for use in tablet mode.

Designed for IT professionals, the little computer has more full-sized ports than you’d typically find in a handheld. And while it was first introduced about a year ago, it still sells for around $800 and up. But I’ve got a lightly used model that’s been sitting in my office for a little too long. So it’s time for a Liliputing giveaway!

Here’s the deal. Lat year One Netbook sent me a demo unit to test, and after spending a little time checking out the hardware and comparing it to the previous model, I set it aside.

So what I’m giving away is a lightly used portable computer rather than a brand new model in all of its original packaging. This model also seems to be an entry-level configuration that it’s sold anymore, with a Core i5-1130G7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. But hey, it’s free (for you… maybe).

Update: This contest has now ended. Congratulations to our winner, Keith!

Here’s how to enter for a chance to win:

Leave a comment on this page by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday, December 23, 2021.

That’s pretty much it, but here’s a bit of fine print about who is and is not eligible to win:

  • This contest is open to Liliputing readers with a valid shipping address in the continental United States (because overseas shipping is expensive and I’m footing the bill).
  • Please leave just one comment.
  • Please us a valid email address when you leave your comment so that I have a way to get in touch if you’re selected as the winner.
  • I’ll randomly select winners from valid entries.
  • Once the winners have been contacted, they’ll have 48 hours to respond. If they don’t respond within that time, I’ll pick a new winner.
  • Writers for Liliputing and close friends and family members are not eligible to win.
  • Anyone who has won another Liliputing contest in the past 60 days is not eligible to win.

  1. A couple decades ago, I bought an HP palmtop, hoping to improve my productivity. No matter what I tried, it never lived up to the hype. This looks like a much better implementation.

  2. Finally, I’m able to update from my HP 260LX Palmtop PC after all these years.

  3. Thanks for the opportunity to win this netbook. My all time favorite PC was the LG Phenom. Small, light, and could do simple projects. I’ve been looking for the perfect replacement and now you are going to give it to me. Thanks, I will use it well.

  4. This would actually be awesome at letting me work while I travel without taking up the space my usual laptop setup requires in my carry-on!

  5. This looks like something I could use to Ron billboards at my business.

  6. Awesome! I just gave away a GPD pocket and would love the chance to win this sucker!

  7. I look forward to receiving the One Netbook A1 Pro should I be randomly selected a winner! Thank you and keep up your great reviews!

  8. Looks great and could really be useful. I would write up a review for it if needed. Have not been able to update any tech gear for several years as I have been unemployed.

    What an Upgrade from my first ever laptop from my employer in 1987, Toshiba 1200. It ran an 80C86 4.5 MHz processor with 1 MB Memory – 640 MB RAM and 384 EMS or Ramdisk, and a 20 Megabyte Hard disk. The first battery powered portable laptop had MS DOS 3.2 in a BIOS chip or could be booted with an Upgrade DOS on the 720K single sided floppy drive. I modified the 20 MB hard drive to 30 MB RLL with a BIOS hack.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Looks nice, I do wonder how it would be to use it for daily tasks given the small size

  9. Looks cool / handy(ish?). After having mostly good experiences with windows on the 10.5 surface touch screen, I’m eager to see how 7″ feels for windows use.

  10. The One Netbook Amis is the cutest device I have ever seen. Its small and compact – the perfect versatile computer for me when I’m on the go!

  11. OMG, I hope I win because it’s so cute. I don’t NEED it, but still. Happy holidays!

  12. This device looks nice and quite versatile. I like how you can take handwritten notes and place it in tablet mode for reading documents and e-books. I’d love to test drive a Linux distro on this thing. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and may the best candidate win.

  13. This looks amazing! Thank for the chance to win this Christmas gift to myself!

  14. Thanks for having this contest/giveaway. Looks like a great portable to help me with my field missions with saving and processing data and taking notes.

  15. Hope to see Santa delivered this unit under the Christmas tree 🙏🏻

  16. I’ve been looking for something small enough to set on the steering wheel while I’m waiting to load (Truck driver)

  17. A lilliputian sized PC being given away by liliputing? I’m so down! Please put my name in the little hat.

  18. Very nice of you to do stuff like this. I’m sure non US readers like myself would have been willing to pay for shipping and customs though. Good luck to all and congrats to the winner.

  19. Your international readers could just get it posted to someone they know in the US. 😉

  20. That little beast is better equipped than the dinosaur desktop I currently use lol

  21. This was the dream computer of my friends and me in the 90s when monochrome LCD palmtops were a thing. It’s still a cool gadget. Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. Gadgets make me very happy and life’s been kind of rough lately. Whoever ends up winning. I hope they enjoy it.

  23. As it stands, this would give me a 1/866 chance… Looks like a pretty neat little device so worth a shot!

  24. I have a really fun idea for a small form computer like this, would be awesome!

  25. This is exactly the type of machine I’ve been looking for. Something I can type on and has an Ethernet port. I hope I win!

  26. This looks like a versatile little device. I’m curious how well its pen support functions. It might make for a fun tablet for digital art. There’s probably a million and one things you could do with it.

  27. Cool! It’s only a bit bigger than my old POQET, but why does it have a RS-232 port in this day and age?

  28. Great article, but I have a series of questions…like have you tested out any other operating systems with this? If so, did you find one worked better than the other.

  29. Long time reader, first time commenter. What a beautiful device, an Intel Core i5 in my hands is exactly my idea of a good time!

  30. Amazing post! I would love to have one of these to practice pentesting with!

  31. This would really make my Christmas. Heck, it would really make my whole year…

  32. Thank you very much indeed, for your work evaluating amazing lil’ computing devices, and letting us drool, er, know about them! Small computing devices have fascinated me for many years now (remember the HP-67?) Not only would having this One Netbook A1 Pro be great fun in and of itself, it would also be greatly helpful in backing up and reviewing the results of our wildlife photography outings (and planned future travels.) Whatever your award decision may be, be well, take good care, and keep these lil’ gadget reviews coming!

  33. I admit a dinky little laptop with an ethernet port would be handy for work as all our equipment (computers, printers, etc) are all connected using ethernet, not wifi.

  34. Please throw my name in the hat, this seems like a great grab and go computing device.

  35. That is a nice giveaway and my first participation on Liliputing.

    I usually come for the review of all umpc and this one sounds hard to get online.

    No matter the shipping fee, I would also cover them !

  36. My dream machine.
    I would pay for shipping ! Brad if you read this, you would make my Christmas memorable !

  37. I’ve never won anything in my life, but for some reason I feel this may be my chance finally 🙂 been waiting over a year to get a better PC than my Walmart laptop with a Celeron 4000 in it with 4gb ram running pop os.

  38. First time participating this kind of giveaway campaign. This is actually what I want.

  39. I have a bad feeling, I’d have a bit too much fun working this into my daily hobby of experimenting with the tech I have.

  40. Gives me 90s/early-00s vibes. Chunky-but-functional always has my attention over razor-edged-and-with-no-ports.

  41. In my mini-man-cave, next to a mini-clock, I have a mini-desk, where I plan to do a mini-amount of work, for mini-amounts of time, serving mini-amounts of the population. This work will, however, change everything. The one thing that is currently standing in the way of this new future, the one thing that may save us all, is a mini-laptop. That’s where you come in.

  42. Brings back memories of the little Toshiba that my friend had. About the size of a paperback and you could actually do stuff!

  43. I’d so love to have one of these in my bag having lugged a large laptop around with me for years to work sites. As an IT Admin/Network Engineer, always wished for something more portable to carry around with me. Thank you for the opportunity and for giving this away.

  44. Brad, I have the perfect home for this mighty mouse of a netbook 🙂 It will be well loved and heavily utilized as a vintage-pc-games (civ 1-4, Morrowind, Might and Magic, etc ) machine – Complementing my old (still alive and running) fujitsu lifebook P1630d. It will be well-cared for and passed down from generation to generation (assuming it’s chinese components last :-)). Keep up the awesome work and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You and the Liliputing family! 🙂

  45. I am grateful for your review of this model since I consider it highly interesting as a smartphone replacement; a 7″ PC really hit the sweetspot between portability and big enough display.

    It would be a great “Christmas gift” to win this bad boy.

    Keep up the good work, btw. I have been reading Liliputing for years in order to stay updated on those devices.

  46. This seems like a really nice pc. I have used a GPD in the past but it has been a unit with a much smaller screen and a celeron processor.

  47. I could use this, but have trouble justifying buying one. Winning this would be awesome.

  48. I have a five year old android tablet that just died. I used it every day for work and play. Right now, a new one is not in the budget. I would like to own this compact laptop. I feel like it would meet my needs nicely. Thanks for the giveaway!

  49. This device would be very helpful for our charitable organization. We just launched an IT learning platform for people with disabilities to train them for industry-specific, entry-level IT jobs. That powerful machine would help us keep track of everything.

    Thank you,
    disABLEDperson, Inc.

  50. Awesome, that’s a perfect base for a porkypinee cyber deck. Please, come on, please give it to me! I need it for my path to world domination, you will be hands only rewarded with a kingdom in the future.

  51. I’m a student and this would help me a lot thanks for making this giveaway!!

  52. This retired senior appreciates the chance to win this little computer, Thanks!

  53. Neat! I used to love netbooks, and it’s such a shame that there are so few good ones to choose from these days.

  54. Been reading your stuff since the EeePC days. Keep up the good work and merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!

  55. I like free stuff! Saw this while browsing for the latest in fanless mini-PCs 🙂

  56. Just a note to say thanks for a great website. You cover such a great variety of products, and it’s always nice to know where I can find them at a good price. Yours is one site I visit every morning to find out what’s new, especially with mini computers. It would be nice to win the one you’re giving away!

  57. I’d absolutely be thrilled to win this, finding a concrete example of 2023 finally being the bearer of some good things. And the last three years have not been good for me or my family. Winner, winner, please hold the Ramen dinner!

  58. There will be a time when our big desktops or really desk bottoms will be a thing if the past. Liliputing will be the norm if it isn’t already..

  59. ever since GPD came out with these, I’ve had my eye on them. didn’t even know they had decent competition!

    (sorry, didn’t mean to reply to someone’s comment but the interface on mobile isn’t super intuitive).

  60. I’ve got to be the lucky one to win this amazing gift that will really help my carrier

    1. Wow, that is super cool and generous if you! Its so powerful for its size

      1. A very awesome mini laptop! Be cool to win it, but at least cool to be aware of it now.

    1. Looks like a great travel companion! I often find myself in need of an Ethernet connection in my travels overseas and the small size of this netbook would be perfect for my carry-on only style of traveling. Heading back to India, Nepal, Bali, and Thailand in 2023!

      Congrats on your success Brad Linder since you’re at this point of comfortably giving this lil puter away. Very kind of you! Happy Holidays!

  61. Interesting specs for such a tiny package. Have always been interested in tablets with a keyboard but would really like to experience this in comparison. Thank you.

  62. I’d be very interested in checking this out as I have a very old HP laptop that is about at it’s a end of life. I have not looked into many mini or micro PC but winning one would be a great way to check them out and to end this year.

  63. Somehow, I don’t actually have a laptop. So I’d love to take this little guy for a spin. 🙂

  64. That is super nice! Amazing to watch tech become smaller and remain just as, if not more so, powerful in architecture.

  65. Would love this as a tiny sysadmin PC! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  66. Sounds like just my size. I am a desktop guy but when I need to be portable, 12″ is the largest I like to go. It’s getting hard to find anything under 13.3″ with any real power lately.

  67. Hello, been an on and off reader of liliputing for a while. Have been wanting a Palmtop/UMPC for a long time, since the Jornada and Psion days of old. And maybe someday I will, with the way cellphones are going. Just want that physical keyboard.

  68. Nollaig shona duit from Ireland,

    Thank you for all the informative & fast content on UMPCs. I still haven’t bought any but will surely find the perfect device one day.

  69. Your entry level “palmtop” is more powerful than my top of the line laptop from a handful of years ago.

    1. ever since GPD came out with these, I’ve had my eye on them. didn’t even know they had decent competition.

  70. What a neat device! I had never seen one until reading your site.

  71. This is a nice little computer. What OS does it have? I hope I can win the prize!

  72. As someone who has been working in the IT Field for many years, I’ve always dreamed of a small laptop style device that I could easily throw in a bag and use for admin type tasks. Thanks for this.

  73. Yoo, I know it’s a loh shot but I’m starting my first dev job and a little terminal PC would be sick.

  74. I would love to have One Netbook A1 Pro for myself and it’s convenient purpose for my work and entertainment.

  75. I love tiny computers! I keep an old netbook around simply because it makes a nice small network tester.

  76. Hi, this is Abigail.
    Hope all is very well, healthier, safely and blessedly with you, everyone.

    One Netbook A1 Pro Is really convenient and good portal computer to carry everywhere you go! Loved it!
    One Netbook A1 Pro have 2 in 1: tablet and computer same time that you are using simple and easy.
    One Netbook A1 Pro could be used for work and entertainment.
    One Netbook A1 Pro could be easily carrying everywhere you go, because it is really convenient small and lightweight; and even can be fitted in my purse.

  77. I would like one. I purchased a little computer about 2 years ago. And it wouldn’t hold a charge. I still want one.

  78. Appreciate the chance to win this little guy… Thank you for offering.

  79. Something like this would be extremely useful in my propane bobtail. I currently use a Dell G15 and it’s a bit….big but hey, I needed a new desktop and laptop at the same time and I try to only do one big purchase a year. 15 inch Google maps with a GPS dongle and the Windows Subsystem for Android is nice but this would mount easier.

  80. I would love to give my son that computer. Unfortunately our family doesn’t have the finances to get him a computer this year. Anyway ♥ the channel, keep up the good work! Been following you on YouTube for a long time! Anyway Happy Holidays!!!

  81. This looks like a sweet little machine! Would be awesome for troubleshooting around the house and working on the network.

  82. I’d love to have this so I can upgrade my life a little and stop sharing with my wife, which slows down forward progress.Just can’t afford anything these days.

    1. Long time lurker from Europe, I would gladly cover s&h but anyway that’s the occasion for me to express my support as I find this giveaway very cool and to wish good luck you all ! Thank you Brad

  83. This little computer would be great for throwing in a work or travel bag instead of lugging around my regular laptop all the time!

  84. I’d love to have the little computer to add to my tech collection!

  85. I’ve always admired tiny tech and just the engineering involved it’s an awesome computer

  86. Commenting, but making it a little longer so it doesn’t get picked up as spam

  87. It’s awesome that you’re giving away the review hardware! I’ll put my hat in the ring!

  88. I would love this and put it to much use. Thanks for everything you do. Win or lose, you rock!

  89. This looks tiny and amazing and would be nice to write and take notes on without having to lug a full laptop around!

    1. There’s a typo on your deadline, it says 2021. Anyways, good luck to all!

  90. The closest thing I’ve seen to the beloved HP LX-200 in a long time!

  91. This is a nice piece of tech. Ill have to buy one like this to help my son practice his coding on the go.

  92. And a serial port! No more USB/232 adpaters.

    I used my Cassiopeia A-20 to no end (can’t beat AA to-go power), but always wanted a Toshiba Libretto. (Did I just date myself? Damn I’m old.) I can see this in my future.

  93. Wow, the ports on that palmtop embarrass modern full sized laptops! Cool stuff.

  94. Good afternoon 🌞
    I’m sort of new to computers,taking free classes at my local library 📚 before the shutdown ;classes for seniors
    This might help me get a handle on some things
    Thank you

  95. Liliputing please make my Christmas so merry and bright by letting me make that oh so perfect one net book that’s barley used to such a great use to get my feet on the ground and to get my buisness going I’ve struggled 5 years with 5 kids and this 1 netbook would really be utilized to the best and most appreciated way please pick me

  96. I’ll be interested in winning this. It doesn’t have the severe flaw that a lot of miniature computers have by having some sort of track pad on the wrong side where it can’t be used. On top of that it has a standard.
    This one gets the basics right, so I am interested.

  97. Would be great to use as I service the networks at all our fire stations!

  98. I could put this little thing to use! An offline capable server for GIS files on wildland fire incidents.

  99. That’s an awesome little computer. It would be a great little backpack computer for work. Would really cut down on the weight of my bag.

  100. That’s a fairly decent system for admins or quick “on call while on the go” situations.

    I’m personally most impressed with the panel and resolution they managed to get in there. 16:10 isnt too common, so in a mobile device is impressive!

  101. I manage networking for a school district, this would come in handy for cramped networking closets.

  102. This is exactly what ive been looking for for work, had no idea this existed but i love it!

  103. Awesome contest. Awesome product. Cheers to everyone competing 😊

  104. Seems to be a neat little product. Would love to get my hands on something like this.

  105. If love to have one. I’ve been looking for a super portable system for a while.

  106. Very kind of you to do this give away. Has some interesting use cases as well for people who primarily use external screens but sometimes need to work away from one to do simple tasks, better than a portable mini desktop PC, no?

  107. That looks pretty awesome. Toss a 60% kb in the bag and you’ve got a decent way to code anywhere

  108. Love that you’re running this giveaway rather than letting it collect dust as e-waste!

  109. Wow, this thing is pretty neat. A pocket-able PC you can actually properly dock…

  110. School is tough on a low spec chromebook, hopefully this can help me out!

  111. This thing looks interesting for in vehicle tuning and data logging. Would love to give it a try

  112. These little things always have had my attention, but I haven’t had a chance to pick one up. Win or lose, thanks for doing this!

  113. Feeling lucky and would love my own laptop to following and subscribe to liliputing.com for this opportunity. Thanks in advance. Sincerely, Vickey Norton

  114. Exactly what I’m needing for field work. I’ve used every permutation of Palm, WinCE, Motion Computing, since early GRiD machines.

  115. Wow what a nice gesture and a nice portable PC. I would love to use it on the road. Never won anything but hoping to change my bad luck.

  116. This sounds perfect for traveling or just going through email with my morning coffee. Nice specs too.

  117. I’ve been looking for a replacement for my very aged netbook for quick work – I’ll have to check these out. Provided I don’t win, that is. 🙂

  118. I recently got a GPD win max 2 for personal computing, and I’ve been stuck with a big bag to carry around the work laptop from place to place, this would really help miniaturize my everyday carry, congrats to the winner and thank you Brad and Liliputing.

  119. I recently found liliputing.com after doing a search for a mini PC and have since come back several times as I found your reviews to be both thorough and insightful. I like the form factor of the netbook a1 pro, pretty basic components but a nice portable design.

  120. My wife has chronic back pain and has trouble lifing regular notebooks. We tried a chromebook, but that isn’t good enough for her work. I’m hoping this is a good solution for her.

  121. So, will we all lose since the instructions said to post it by Dec. 23… 2021?

    😀

  122. Mini laptop FTW. The actual win. Can I win this? I wanna win this. Momma always said I was a winner.

  123. Great small portable laptop. Seems a great addition for traveling purposes.

  124. Been watching your stuff for years. I’m an IT professional starting a new job in January. This would be an amazing Christmas gift. Thanks for all your reviews and work of the years!

  125. Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win this netbook. This would be a great upgrade to my Atom N255 that i still use on occassion.

  126. Wow, what a great device! Would be great to have one as I troubleshoot user’s issues.

  127. Native RS-232 & Ethernet would be great @work for network stuffs maintenance.
    But I’m curious about throttling and battery life
    Would love to have one to taunt my colleagues that are using outdated laptop or transform their laptop into an octopus with all their adapter

  128. Love the form factor. Specs look good for size.
    Price seems a bit on the high side. I would love to own one.

  129. One netbook seems to have a good spec. Hopefully more manufacturers can include thunderbolt 3 or 4/USB 4 standard to more laptops in smaller format.

  130. Hey,

    If we cover international shipping can we be involved?

    Also the date is slightly wrong… “Leave a comment on this page by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday, December 23, 2021” Assuming that’s 2022

  131. I’ve been wanting something more fully featured than a tablet but not as bulky a full sized laptop to do some light programming and it seems this might just be perfect. The keyboard is small but it beats a touch screen! Lol.

  132. I hate dragging my work laptop to the datacenter, this would be an excellent little ultra-portable device for when I’m on the move

  133. This form factor -small super portable clamshell computer with usable keyboard, is something that has largely been abandoned but is still incredibly useful. At one time, before iPhones and iPads, there were the Psions, the HPC’s, Toshiba Libretto, and netbooks. A modern update to this form factor is desirable and should always be available.

  134. Admittedly never thought I would see a modern day netbook. Looks pretty neat!

  135. With this I could finally convince my friends & family to invest in that new FTX with me! Opportunities like this don’t usually happen to us country folk! I keep tellin em the internets ain’t all evil! HOOWEEE!!!
    Best Regards,

    1. this would be pretty fun to play around with — I’d love to give it a try!

  136. What a great diagnostic computer for setti g up tech around the house

  137. Beautiful portable computer, i would like to have one!
    Thank you,
    Ivan

  138. That seems like such a cool little device. Thanks for doing this.

  139. I would have “killed” to have something this compact to carry with me back when I was in IT. I’m recently retired now, but it would be incredibly useful to me now to carry with me when I go out on my astronomy nights. If I don’t win I’ll just have to consider buying one (but winning is both more fun, and more exciting!

  140. IT SysAdmin here, this would be perfect for on the go troubleshooting.
    Count me in!

  141. Nice little machine. iOS use it as a portable troubleshooting “workstation”.

    1. I dig the portability. It would be a good troubleshooting partner on the shop floor

  142. Holy moley this would be so handy to monitor my little at home data server farm! Love the contest idea! Either way love your stuff!

  143. This would be such a great present for a family member! Best of luck everyone.
    Kudos to you Brad and team.

  144. Even the base spec is pretty reasonable for a microPC! Thanks for doing this!

  145. I’ve never won anything before not even the lottery. Congratulations to whomever is the lucky one

    1. Happy Holidays!

      I read Liliputing regularly vis my Google News Feed. There are so many choices, it is hard for someone like me to make a buying decision.

      This new form – larger and more powerful then a phone yet smaller then then a little laptop is interesting. The slightly bigger one you contrast to might be more usable, say sitting in a coffeeshop working or doing homework.

      Anyway keep up the great reporting on these smaller configurations.

      Scott

  146. Hmm interesting laptop. Usefully for small areas in the it field. Could use one since I do a lot of diagnostics In systems.

  147. Wow that’s a pretty awesome giveaway.

    Congrats to whoever wins it. Seems like a good little machine. I could use one of those too since I often work in tight spaces.

  148. This is a nice ultraportable! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  149. looks awesome for an sys admin due to the serial port built in! would be awesome to win! thanks brad for the giveaway chance!

  150. Awesome little machine can’t wait to see one in person and try it out

  151. The multitude of full size ports is very interesting. I’ve never been obsessed with having the slimmest laptop and find function way more relevant than aesthetics. Clearly I’m in the minority since the market goes to slimmer and slimmer devices by the year.

  152. Wow, nice give away! This works be perfect for my customer visits where a full sized laptop is not required

  153. This would make a nice replacement for my late, lamented Asus TF101. 🙂

  154. These are so cool.

    I bought a Chuwi MiniBook because of this website, really like it, but could do with being a bit faster with more RAM, so this one would be ideal.

    Great website, one of my top 5 every day views

  155. Appreciate the giveaway. Just also wanted to say thanks for covering this niche of small computers for so long. Hope you have a happy holidays!

  156. I would use this every single day for work. I work in IT and my laptop is just the worst because we’re such a small company. I LOVE these little lappys. Good luck everybody!

  157. The One Netbook A1 Pro sounds very interesting and I would love to try one out if I win your drawing. Thanks.

  158. I would seriously enjoy using this machine. Hope to be the lucky one, thanks Brad!

    Best wishes for Christmas

  159. Hey Brad!
    I could sure use a small computer with a real RS-232 port! Please…

    Happy Holidays!

  160. Hi, I’m from Ukraine but I want to take part in this giveaway action. Sure thing I’ll provide a valid shipping address in the continental United States. Hope to win. Thank you

  161. Sweet. Miss my Psion palmtop and Samsung Q1p UMPC. This looks like a decent (more modern) replacement…

  162. This would be awesome for my lil dude’s (5yo) STEM and learning websites, he’s been asking for a lappy for weeks now.

    1. What an awesome little machine. With all those ports, looks like it would be nice for field work or at home for some light gaming/emulation, or watching movies.

  163. Oh, man – I always wanted one of those Sharp Zaurus clamshell models (I’d already jumped on a 5500, so couldn’t justify it). This would SO make up for having missed out on that!

  164. I wish more companies designed machines like this for IT professionals. Especially with both serial and Ethernet jacks. Hats of to you guys.

  165. This would actually be super helpful as I do a lot of work on the go ✨

  166. I love tiny computers and will give this one a nice home. Oh, oh…pick me, pick me!

  167. I’m about to graduate and am banking on my CS minor and 4 years I.T. experience. If not for the giveaway, at least wish me luck for the job hunt coming!

  168. I owned a one netbook before, but I had to let it move on to another other. I would appreciate the opportunity for another one!

  169. Seriously love this thing. My laptop just died on me and would love this!

  170. Amazing little laptop would love to have one like this. Perfect for a truck driver.

  171. I so want one of these! Just not in my budget. Santa please deliver this to me! I won’t care if it is after Christmas.

  172. If I’m chosen this little one will become my parks on the air and moto camping companion.

  173. Tossing my hat in the ring. Would be a handy device when I’m 3D printing or working with my desktop CNC.

  174. I’d like to give it a spin. The world needs more netbooks/hybrids/geekery! 🙂

  175. That device takes me back to the days of an integrated physical thumb keyboard on cell phone. I miss the tactile feel of the keys. My thumbs could find the home keys because of the raised dot.

  176. I’m curious about the compromises around the small keyboard. Having ethernet and RS-232 on board would definitely be helpful for IT troubleshooting though.

  177. It is wild that a netbook is still out there in 2022. But those specs sure are modern. I love that this is out there and would love to get a nice hub to get a couple screens set up if I win it!

  178. Well, good things come in small packages! Would be awesome to have a new pc for christmas.

  179. It’s really awesome seeing these kinds of “notebooks” making a comeback recently. They should be more viable than previous attempts due to the advancements in technology

  180. What a cute little computer, very nice of you to give it away! I’ll give it a good home.

  181. Ooo. Always in the market for a portable laptop with Ethernet!

  182. Your hands-on is the reason I got interested in the A1 as a GPD Pocket alternative. Appreciate the giveaway

  183. This would be a nice upgrade. Thanks for the opportunity. Merry Christmas.

  184. Looks like a good little computer, for light IT stuff.
    I likey pick me please I would like a gift sent to me!

    Thank you for the consideration
    Have a Merry Christmas!

  185. Tiny computer! This has a lot more processing power than the Pentium Gold device I’ve been using for ultraportable computing.

  186. Would be great for college! Am taking computer information and technology courses for associate degree. Happy holidays!

  187. That little guy has better specs than my daily driver of 5 years. Would make a great upgrade, and it’s so portable.

  188. That’s so cool! I’ve got my fingers crossed 🙂 thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone!

  189. I’ll toss my hat into the ring. Love these machines, followed you from the beginning because of your commitment to the netbook.

  190. Hey, I’m game for this awesome little convertible UMPC! Such a small but capable machine. :3

  191. I love things like this! If I win it, I’m going to put Ableton Live on it and have a ultra portable synth/DAW!

  192. Looks interesting! Make learning Python on the go easier than trying to do it on my phone.

  193. In it to win it!

    Also, hope they release more of these supporting 5G and 4G LTE.

  194. The size reminds me of my old ASUS eeePC Netbook, which when it first came out I paid almost $1000 for it. Yikes!!

    Finally sold it on eBay as a vintage computer, for like $50

    Wouldn’t mind checking out this new unit to see how far things have come in the past 2 decades.

  195. Long time reader/lurker here. I love this site and I have been looking for a device exactly like this and never noticed this model. Looks intriguing! Thank you for all the work you pour into this website.

  196. I’m intrigued by devices like this and the GPD MicroPC, reminds me of the days when I carried a Psion organizer.

  197. Looks like a good size. Wish the netbook style form factor was more popular.

  198. I am starting up my flux capacitor so that I can comment by December 23, 2021! :~D

  199. Birthday is that day and would be a great birthday present. Great for anyone who receives it though. Thank you for the chance.

  200. A demo unit? Are you sure they don’t want it back? I drove a demo car once and I didn’t bring it back; they sent the cops after me. I won’t tell if you won’t. I love it please pick me.

  201. I am sure I could find a place for this goofy little machine in my synth setup.

  202. What a wonderful device! Looks super handy. Thanks for setting up this giveaway!

  203. Excited about this giveaway! I’ve had my eye on this one for a while.

  204. I used to have a Nexus 7 with about the same size display as the One Netbook A1 Pro.

  205. This would make my life easier as I work warehouse IT and usually hit 10,000 steps at work. I often have to carry my giant laptop around (while opened) which makes things harder than they should be.

  206. I’ve always love small tech, and I miss netbooks. Imagine netbooks from 2010 with today’s computing power.

  207. The last time I had a netbook it had a single-core Celeron processor in it. This would be a huge step up from that oldie. Thanks for spreading a little giveaway cheer!

  208. Hey brother, it is so awesome of you to be doing this. I honestly have been loosing faith in humanity. When I tell you I can sob story and tell you I have lost everything in a fire recently and been living and working out of my truck while my wife had to move to her mom’s with our kids because they can’t live in a truck. This computer would change my life and I’m dead serious man. Thank you so much for giving to people man

  209. Been a year of EVERYTHING going wrong, maybe this can be the one thing that goes right. Thanx for the opportunity to have something to hope for 🙂

    1. The last time I had a netbook it had a single-core Celeron processor in it. This would be a huge step up from that oldie. Thanks for spreading a little giveaway cheer!

      1. Oops. I wasn’t trying to reply to your comment and I can’t delete it. Sorry.

  210. I’d love to experiment with one of these. Used to mess with an Asus EEEPC with an Atom and 2GB of RAM as a portable diagnostics machine, would like to revive the concept.

  211. This gem would help me with my new career move. Got a supervisor position finally, and I can use all the help I can get.
    Goodbye cheap Chrome OS tablet.

  212. I did not know this device existed… And now I definitely need one!

  213. I’ve been eyeing up ultraportables for a long time and have used this site for a lot of my information and it’s been useful to me. I’ve got my fingers crossed!

  214. Looks like fun. Thanks for doing the giveaway and good luck to everyone.

  215. I was contemplating for long time if i need such s small computer. Would be nice to give it a try.

  216. Absolutely LOVE Liliputing! Will be super excited if I could be chosen. 🙂

  217. I was thinking how much I loved netbooks and I wish they’d come back! Here’s to hoping I’m selected!

  218. Huge fan of this form factor and I’d love to have one. Thanks for the opportunity to win yours!

  219. I’ve never seen a full featured computer that small. Interesting for sure!

  220. Like another commenter said, I like the idea and the execution intrigues me, but that recessed serial port seems likely to not work with most of my cables.

    1. Meh. Nothing a couple of stacked gender changers can’t fix.

  221. Can’t wait to play with this little device. I really hope I win! Getting into SDR and this seems like a great mobile option 🙂

  222. Our life and all it’s components aren’t ours alone to own…but share with the earth’s energies

  223. Interesting port selection on the little guy. I wonder what is the use these days for RS 232? But I love the inclusion of the Ethernet jack. It’s always a pain to whip out the dongles.

  224. “This model also seems to be an entry-level configuration that it’s **** sold anymore, with a Core i5-1130G7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. But hey, it’s free (for you… maybe).”

    Is the word "not" in the place where I put **** stars.
    It didn't "flow" well as written.

    [ Not qualified to win as I live in Vancouver Canada ]

  225. Fun little PC, about as personal as you can get with all this packed into 7”. I’m not sure who is going to want it more, myself, my wife or my kids… Let’s find out!!!!!

  226. Would be a nice inclusion for my limit space 3D printer work bench.
    Not too sure about the recessed RS-232 ,it looks nice ,but I’ve had issues with the more bulky connectors in those situations.

  227. Thank you for the opportunity to win this Brad. Keep up the great work!

  228. Thank you for creating this opportunity and placing this back into circulation rather than becoming e-waste. I would end up utilizing this as an on call device for work updates and for reading as well.

    Best of luck to all and happiest of holidays!

  229. Had a Asus netbook back in the day! It would be cool to revisit the form factor with actual performance!

  230. This computer is perfect for an educator of which i am .that needs the portability of a laptop but does not want the bulk of a regular size of a full size laptop this would be excellent.

  231. It’s been like 10 years since the last time I won something from Liliputing (a laptop skin). Maybe I’ll get lucky again!

  232. I think that mini-laptop is soooooo cool! I would love to use it at the local beach for my online job here in Puerto Rico!!

  233. If looks could kill I’d say, Let me just look at you up close please .. …

  234. Due to its size this might make a very suitable carputer as well but with the option of complete autonomy to be removed from the vehicle. Thank you for this opportunity of giving it away.

  235. This little machine reminds me of sonys attempt to make a micro laptop, always wanted one, but never could afford. Maybe this is my lucky break! Haha..thanks for offering the opportunity

  236. Reminds me of my late, lamented Asus eee PC clamshell!
    Long live netbooks!

  238. “Yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation” yields falsehood when preceded by its quotation.

  239. Apparently, I’m not a smart man, and replied to someone else instead of making a top level comment. Here’s to trying to do it right this time 🙂

  240. I’d love to win a mini laptop, thanks for the opportunity!

  241. Wow this looks like a great little machine. I was recently robbed and they got my laptop. So I’m also want to fixed income and I can’t afford to get a new one so anytime I see something that comes up as a giveaway I try to enter. So thank you for doing this.

  242. I’ve always wanted one of these mini laptops. Great video review as always.

  243. been reading this blog compulsively for years!
    even if I don’t win, I cheer you on! liliputian computing is awesome!

  244. Hi,

    I’m not in US. But unfortunately in Iran. The land of fight for #Woman, #Life and #Freedom.

    Here we (developers) are in very bad situation. Net is blocked by government and big foreign techs. We are in the middle of a pressure from both sides (government and the world) like a sandwich. Currently my main laptop is a used 2nd gen Intel core i5 CPU with 4GiBs of RAM.

    I would like to have a chance to win this. It and pinebook pro are my dream handhelds.

    I can manage the shipping cost through a friend in Canada.

    And of course, if you can’t do that, it’s not a problem. Thank you for your kind takeaways.

  245. Now this looks like a handy little device that would make work much more convenient.

  246. Yes! Woohoo, thanks for this giveaway. I love your site and glad it has native RSS support so I can follow it easily.

  247. Hi, I accidentally commented under Stephen and didn’t want to miss out on the giveaway. Sorry for the double post. Please delete the other one.

  248. Random comment here fingers crossed as it a nice bit of kit. Thanks Brad merry Christmas!

    1. Happy holidays! That is a very sweet piece of tech. I’m curious to see if gaming can be done on there with Xbox PC unlimited or Nvidia 3080.

  249. Hickory Dickory dock,
    A computer was overclocked,
    It worked super fast,
    But it didn’t last,
    For it soon overheated and popped!

  250. That is one cool mini laptop. Gpd used to have a cheaper version a while back with the n4100 cpu.

  251. This is a really cool gadget. Let’s hope the luck of the gods is with me on this one!

  252. Brad, your site and insights are always interesting and insightful. You valiantly feed my inner geekness (well appreciation of technology)

    Have a computational twist-tastic festive break. To you and all Liliputing readers.

  253. I have been reading your site for several years. I’ve always been intrigued by these mini laptops, but could never justify the cost. I’m happy to throw my hat in the ring

  254. Brad thanks for doing the give away, good luck to evryone. I love these swivel type of screen machines, as shown by my owning a Thinkpad X220t and a X230t, I wonder if the Steam OS would run well on this?

  255. Would be a cool device to use on the go and for some fun! Wishing everyone luck!

  256. This is so cute! I always wanted a tiny computer growing up, thank y’all u for the chance!

  257. Hey I’m totally hoping to get a new portable 🙂 I’ve been rocking the gpd win 1 for a while and love the form factor. With the i5 I wonder if this could be used for steam , epic and gog. As I would love to see newer games on the small form factor

  258. After almost a decade of owning it I dropped my laptop tonight. I have never dropped one before. Hopefully this one will survive better if I win.

  259. This computer looks so cool. I’m running a 8 year old desktop and it is on its last leg this would be a huge upgrade.

  260. It would be amazing to win this. I’m a writer, and I can use this on the go to contribute to the world.

    1. I’ve been obsessed with UMPCs for years now. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

    1. Aw dang, I’ve been looking for good netbook for a while, too bad this isn’t open for international readers. Good luck to everyone, though!

    1. After reading the specs, this looks like something I’d love a lot more than I should 🙂

      Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  261. i am commenting in case, but if shipping cost for you is the issue, i would have zero issues paying the fees if chosen, to take the burden from you (located in canada).

  262. The first computer I ever interacted with was a Jornada 720 palmtop with a resistive touchscreen, 16MB CF card, and a tiny version of Microsoft Word that my mom used for writing. The Li-Ion battery could get it over 8hrs, making it uniquely suited to rural/ farm life with no electrical grid. I’m happy mini laptops are seeing a resurgence with modern technology.

  263. Wow, that is a rad little machine! I dig the pen support, I’d love to give that a go!

  264. I came here to drink milk and win computers, and I just finished my milk…

  265. Worth a shot! Definitely seems like a very interesting device to use!

  266. Hi! Super excited for the opportunity to win your lightly used A1 pro! Long time UMPC fan and looking for something with a slightly more modern chipset, especially the new 11th gen intel! I hear good thing about the integrated graphics and would love to test it out!

  267. I’ll give it a try probably won’t win but I’ll try it. I’m assuming my address will be needed if I am picked. But I do live in the United States so no need to worry about that.

  268. Love your site. I had a Panasonic Lets Note R4 years ago and have loved small computers ever since.

  269. I’ve only recently discovered your sure and I’m fascinated by the world of mini computers as someone who doesn’t do much in the way of gaming and really likes to see his dollar go as far as possible it’s become an interesting world to explore.

  270. I’m definitely interested. Thanks for such a great site and this giveaway as well.

  271. I never win these, but you can’t win if you don’t try. Here’s hoping the backlight controller on the pro is better / different than the original m3 model.

  272. Mini computers are always so cool! They’re one of those “This is really cool, and I want one” items…that most normal people don’t have a use for. As a teacher, this would be really interesting to use in my classroom, or during track season, as a coach. Infinitely more useful than an iPad!

    Thanks for the giveaway, and Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  273. Pick me! I want to 3D print a chest mount rig for this. Made one for the gpd micropc for Hackaday’s cyberdeck contest but this form factor would be more useful!

  274. Has it been a while since the last giveaway? Thanks for your generosity!

  275. Joined / started following this year. Lots of interesting content and this is one of the cool things for a digital sketch pad.

  276. Long-time reader here, this looks neat as heck. I bet it’s perfect for digital art on the go!

  277. This looks amazing, and I’d love to have it.

    Thanks for running a drawing for it!

  278. Sounds like a cool little machine! What a nice idea for a Christmas giveaway!

  279. This looks like an interesting toy. Thanks for running the contest.

  280. Have been wanting one of these for a while! Significantly better than the Toposh with the J4125.

  281. Thanks for the opportunity; I’ve enjoyed reading the articles on Liliputing, and I look forward to more in the coming year!

  282. In the prior review you linked, it said there was a “1 x USB4 Type-C 40 Gbps” which isn’t listed in the specs on this post.

  283. Here’s hoping! 🙂 I won your giveaway of a One Netbook One Mix 1s Yoga a while back (maybe 2 years ago?), so maybe I’ll be lucky again!

  284. Brad, this would be awesome for me to win. This is my favorite site and I read all your articles everyday.

  285. Long time reader Brad, I’ve been collecting smaller convertible laptops in recent years due to influence of this website. Love the small footprint of these machines!

  286. One Netbook A1 Pro sounds useful and should fit in pocket of the bathrobe of this this retirement home resident age 90 . My valid Washington State shipping address available on request.

  287. “Leave a comment on this page by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday, December 23, 2021.”?

  288. Cool little laptop! Crossing my fingers for a lucky raffle pick.

  289. I look forward to using my nearly new One Netbook A1 Pro; going to have to draw up a schedule in order to use all my extant computers though.

  290. I am a fan of your reviews which I read regularily and would appreciate winning the One Netbook A1 Pro is portable computer .

  292. Till 21. This is sad, I am one year late.
    I would be happy to test this device.

  293. Ita a bit hard to leave comment by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday, December 23, 2021 without tine travel, but I’ll try.

  294. Looks like an awesome little laptop. By the way, I think you made a typo on the deadline, listing 2021 instead of 2022.

    Thanks!

  295. This is one of my favorite blogs, I love little gadgets (and enjoy the daily sales) – keep it up!

  296. I love the tiny laptops, it’s so cool to see so much put into something so small.

  297. Looks a great little machine. Would be nice for traveling and small desk spaces.

  298. Santa… is that you…??

    Always enjoy the articles, Mr. Linder – thanks for keeping ’em coming!!

  299. Happy Holidays, Brad and everyone! Who doesn’t love a good giveaway? Good luck to all you commenters!

  300. Seeing how it’s 2022, I’m hoping I’m not a year late to enter 😛

  301. Aw, man. we missed it.

    “Leave a comment on this page by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on Friday, December 23, 2021.”

  302. hey Brad – following you since the EEE 701 days. Hope you have a great 2023! Will you be doing CES virtually? Always enjoyed seeing what was in your kit to help you cover the show.

  303. I’d love to turn this into a modern day version of a PDA. I miss those days.

  304. Dear Santa,
    I’ve been very good this year. I hope to see you see you soon.
    Thanx

  305. The amount of power in these modern palmtops is amazing, esp when I look back at my HP Mini Note 2133 w/ its 1.0 GHz VIA C7-M ULV CPU.

  306. Thanks for offering this up as a giveaway. I know an admin who would love this for their tool kit.

  307. I’ve always wanted a to try out a Computer of this Form Factor with Major Hard Scifi Vibes. Would be Really Cool to Have.

  308. Oh, this would be a nice new toy to have!!!! Always love those UMPC devices.

  309. Keep up the great work! I appreciate all you do to keep us all up to date on the tech news!

  310. Wrote part of my thesis, in Mexico, on an HP netbook only a bit bigger that.

  311. I’d love to put this thing through its paces, see what it’s capable of. Definitely some Linux action!

  312. I was just looking for a serial terminal solution an hour ago! How didn’t this come up then?

  313. Those things look so cool, but I don’t know what I would actually do with one

  314. Thank you for your reviews and providing mini PC news! Your site is one of my daily reads.

    1. What a neat little device perfect for on the go computing would be neat to have something this small I didn’t even know hardware like this came in this size and price point

    1. I have been following Brad for more years than I can think. Why do I love little laptops so much?
