What do you think of this new 7 inch laptop?
« on: January 04, 2017, 03:24:51 am »
What do you think of this new product? It employs Windows 10 system+Touch panel+fully functional keyboard, with 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM. The main difference between this and GPD WIN is that it is slightly larger (7 Inch) and it doesn't have gamepad buttons. Please see the pictures of this new device below.

Ah so this is what they were talking about on Tieba in the thread about the upcoming improvements to the Win then.

Guerrillas sprayer : there will be large-screen version
2016-12-19 20:55

I'm always interested in Palmtops/tiny laptops but the mouse trackball (assuming that's what the red dot is) looks painful to use and prone to be being nudged when using the spacebar although given the amount of space available I'm not sure how that could be improved.
Is the button below the mouse ball a middle mouse button?
Judging by the render this design proposal is passively cooled correct or is there plans for a fan as well?
Is the proposed screen the same resolution as the Win (1280x720) or higher like 1366x768?
What about speakers?
What would the estimated price be?

Just a netbook.
Well I guess it'll be good for people who need a small computer with a decent-sized keyboard for touch-typing. Mostly those who missed using a netbook and who aren't using older ones since the specs are too outdated.

Honestly, I can't imagine many people would be interested in another  netbook. 

The interest for me is pretty much Zero


I would suggest that GPD focus on the GPD XD 2 as their next project.  That seemed far more interesting with it's 360 degree rotating screen.  And I know a lot of people have been waiting for it.

Would need a better CPU and build in game controls, otherwise I wouldn't see a big market for it.

If not actively cooled, this thing is useless for gaming from what I see with my gpdwin...

The three things I'd like to see GPD release next

1)  A Ubuntu download with drivers for the GPD WIN as promised to backers .  I know a lot of people that would buy a GPD WIN when Ubuntu becomes an option for it

2)  An Android  GPD XD 2, a lot of people have been waiting for this

3)  A premium GPD WIN option with 128GB storage or more. Perhaps even with a metal shell like the one shown at one point in the Indiegogo campaign.   There are a ton of people that would buy a larger storage WIN option.  Call it the GPD WIN Elite.

The mouse trackball indeed is the red dot. It contains the fan. The resolution is 1920?1080, and the price is not released yet. The audio chip uses Realtek ALC5645.

This device is an UMPC rather than the gaming console. This product is not the same series with GPD WIN, for GPD WIN series we will develop better processor. The name for this device is currently named ?Pocket?, which is positioned as a portable notebook. For Pocket 2 we will also develop better processor.

Hello,victor. We are waiting for a better chip for GPD XD 2.So please don't worry.It must will be released one day.
And this new product actually should be a UMPC not a game console. So we remove the game pad.and adopt a real full keyboard.

Hello GPD employee,

Please stop advertising or promoting your crappy netbook.

Come on SONY, you have been overly harsh on GPD lately.  As for this thread , there is nothing wrong with GPD starting a thread to get user input on a product they are contemplating .   They did the same for the GPD WIN and previous products

I would prefer dualos with native Android and win10 for current gpd win. I can collaborate with kernel if you like.

A gpd xd 2 would be nice Too, but I suppose you are still waiting for rk3399, right? Or hace you considered other alternative like some New mtk processor?

For a device like this, I wouldn't go over a 6", or maybe even 5.5", screen. 7" is too big, it can't fit in your pocket. 1366x768 is probably the ideal resolution.

I like the idea, but why does it have to look so much like a Macbook?
I'd love a Netbook with those specs and an aluminium body but I think it should be at least 8"


PS: and it has more ports than a 12" Macbook haha love it ^^

Hi Kendy,

Do you have any news about the development of the optimised Windows version of the GPD WIN? We are also waiting for driver fix for the mouse mod.

About this netbook, the resolution is too high, you should consider the 4G, a (retractable) touch pad, a front camera, a 360? hinge and sd card reader, not micro sd.
