One Netbook is probably best known these days for the Chinese PC maker’s handheld gaming computers. But the company got its start making mini-laptops… and never really stopped making them.

Now One Netbook is showing off its next-gen model. The OneMix 5 is compact laptop with a 10.1 inch display, a 9-watt Intel Core i7-1250U processor with 10 cores and 12 threads, and a convertible design that lets you pull the screen forward over the keyboard for use in easel or tablet modes.


It’s the first time we’ve seen this style of convertible notebook from One Netbook, but it’s not an entirely unique design – larger laptops like the Microsoft Surface Studio and Acer ConceptD Ezel systems also have pull-forward displays that let you bring the screen closer when you don’t need the keyboard.

What’s unusual is to see this design in such a compact system. The OneMix 5 has a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel LTPS display with 299 pixels per inch and support for touch and a digital pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

According to a spec sheet the company showed on Japan, the OneMix 5 should measure 173 x 136.5 x 17.8mm (6.8″ x 5.4″ x 0.7″) and weighs 680 grams (1.5 pounds)… but that’s probably inaccurate, as you cannot fit a 10.1 inch display in a device with those dimensions, which were probably copied and pasted from a smaller device. But with a 10.1 inch screen, it’s certainly going to be smaller than most laptops on the market.

@sunmattuPorts include:

  • 1 x USB4 Type-C
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Type-C
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Type-A
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x microSD card reader

Other features include a 41.8 Wh battery (11,000 mAh/3.8V), a 65W USB Type-C charger, support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, stereo speakers with Harman Kardon audio, 16GB to 32GB of LPDDR5-5200 memory, and an M.2 slot with support for up to 4TB of PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid state storage.

It has a backlit keyboard that looks almost as large as a full-sized keyboard. But the number and Fn keys are half-height, while the arrow keys, right shift key, and some punctuation keys are half-width.

One Netbook hasn’t announced how much the mini-laptop will cost, but the company showed off the One Mix 5 at an event in Japan recently, and said it will be available for purchase this summer.

  1. So it’s basically a OneMix4 with a different screen hinge and focus more on being a canvas for the pen. If i didn’t have my OneMix4 already, I’d nab this one.

  2. Any idea when this is actually coming out? Been checking their site excessively since reading this post and nothing so far lol

  3. I wish they’d stop using Intel. That’s literally the only thing causing pause for me. Meanwhile you have GPD running the AMD 7840U with a 60+ Wh battery.

  4. Love my One Netbook 4 and this one looks interesting as well, but

    The OneMix 5 measures 173 x 136.5 x 17.8mm (6.8″ x 5.4″ x 0.7″) and weighs 680 grams (1.5 pounds). It has a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel LTPS display

    is physically impossible without a folding display or outright magic, since 16:10 10.1″ matrix itself is gonna be 218×136 mm.
