It's a shame there aren't any portables besides the OpenPandora that have a keyboard. If GPD has said screw it to the size and thrown a keyboard in the middle it of the XD controls it would have absolutely brilliant. I've seen some very slim mini keyboards they could have easily integrated into the case. I have one of these and popped it open and the board is super slim.

Hey everyone, if this dream becomes reality then we might need to move this topic elsewhere :D
Atm, GPD is a sub section under Android General Discussions.

Like the first one (maybe swap the left analog stick and dpad around) only with a full mini keyboard in between the dpad and right stick.

Although everybody is asking for the second one that would be a disaster as your thumbs would be in an awkward position due to how close the buttons and dpad are to the edges.

If you can't make it comfortable with a keyboard then maybe omit the keyboard or use a slightly larger shell.

I would buy #2 if it was Atom (Intel) and not ARM.

The first one I guess. It all really depends on the physical dimensions though. I'd be happy with a similar form factor to the GPD XD since I don't really care about a keyboard. The main things I'd want for a windows gaming handheld is guaranteed x-input support so it's hassle free as is reasonably possible and hdmi output so I can work on a big screen when sorting out game settings, setting up emulators and other desktop things.
The only other important thing I can think of at the moment is that it can support as high a microsd as possible so since PC games tend to take up a lot of space.

Yup, Xinput is the most necessary thing. Might seem obvious but Chinese companies have a habit of missing important details. Absolute minimum internal storage should be 32gb too as Windows takes up a few gb and the games can be huge.

Definitly the Nr. 2 but you have to work on the Screen and Backlight quality. Better make it a bit more expensive and Quality wise better...

Yup It's amazing how things that seem obvious when you're invested in an ecosystem never occur to others.
I saw that the original Disgaea is getting a PC port and from the screenshots it looks like its going to be Direct input which is crazy for a port coming out in 2016.
