* grizgun , I completely agree, I wanted to buy a mix plus, because in my opinion everything is fine, but 4GB is the only negative. There will be no problems with 8GB. I will wait for Vin2 or Mix Plus 2 to appear earlier :)

A small GPD Win 2 video teaser


I do not like how the F1-F12 buttons were implemented. It would have been better done on digital via Fn as on the first Win, and instead of these F1-F6, some other function buttons and the same R3 would have been made.

It sounds very much.
I just want to immediately notice at the expense of these "2 batteries !!!!" and "9800mAh !!!!" something...
Atomic devices like the same wine as I saw - everyone worked on 3.7v batteries. But tablets / laptops on core-m like this 7Y30 on double spikes as they need more)
So if you write specs honestly and not in Chinese, it will still look like 4900mAh 7.2v (7.4 / 7.6?) And not like 3.8 9800mAh: rolleyes:
But the main figure here is of course 37.24Wh, and with such a screen this should be quite good. With a minimum load (text / video) it will live longer than wine1 for sure, but under heavy games + - I also think so.

Rep: (8)
If they are targeting April, I will definitely order more from Indigo, since The price on crowds is still lower than retailers will have. The whole question of the first versions, how many childhood diseases they have at the start ...
I do not really understand why they carried the L3 to the keyboard, if in fact the L3 shift itself is with all the shifters, but the fact that the SSD connector available made it very well.

Rep: (27)
Weight: 460g

Not weak - 460gr. VIN1 weighs 300. The solution with two batteries is interesting, but the Chinese will not be able to implement it properly. A lot of marriage will be. How are they with synchronicity? Should one sit and the other not? Two controllers or one for two? .. Well, do not do it right. I do not believe, even if Pocket could not.
And why a removable SSD? And what's the slot, I wonder? E-PCI? If for higher capacity SSD it is unlikely that VIN2 will last for so long. At best, they will release something new. At worst, something will break. Or did it for modem fans)? Type pulled SSD, inserted a modem there (well, there, the SIM-holder screwed ..), and the system to load from USB .. It is doubtful.
Well, the console does not roll VIN2 - relatively heavy, expensive, too technically complex, so that the Chinese can do it properly and can only be used for games. Then it's better to buy Pocket.

Rep: (8)
And why a removable SSD?

There M.2 (Storage: 128GB M.2 2242), which is used by almost all new windows-china-tablets. Just as an option for further replacement by 256 is quite logical.

There are no alternatives in principle, for people who want without parsing in the subway / traffic jam / sitting in the toilet, some PC hits (Doom, Skyrim) have Ninswitch, but until it is cracked - a rather expensive portable comes out, but the release of ports / new games is quite a long wait. And WIN2 has a uniquely wider range of gaming capabilities from wii, ps2 and lower emulators to modern games. 8yrh and good percents, they change the picture very much, even in comparison with WIN1. I would regard WIN1,2 only as a portable PC gaming console, something more than gaming and Internet surfing / watching movies from them is at least strange to expect.

8gig and a good percent, there are very different pictures

Boo. VIN1 can be purchased for 15 and below. And this will cost 30-35 tr. if not more expensive. Also a completely different picture. If we are talking about gamers who don’t play - like a drug without a dose, then yes, you can give any money. But I say that the gadget is unsuccessful. The CPU heats up, the power supply system of 2 batteries .. you need a lot of technical solutions for this. The Chinese will not do it well.

For me, VIN1 is a replacement for UMID M1. Here, who needs what. My opinion is not the way they went. If you would improve the quality and functionality, it would be better than reducing everything to the console and making such controversial and complex technical solutions, taking into account the shock loads on the gadget in games.

GPD Win 1 with a plastic cover weighs about 370 grams

I did not weigh myself. But the description on www.geekbuying.com is written that 300. Well, let it be 370. Then VIN2 will also weigh not 460, but more than 500. The Chinese like to downplay the weight when it is important.

Unlike SmashZ, in WIN2 there is a physical clave, and quite a few games are very dependent on it, even if most new games come with full support for the gamepad, but the old ones may not even run if there is none.

Rep: (32)
* grizgun
Well, regarding the games + clave here in two ways. People somehow play on Windows tablets, Surface Pro there, etc. In the topic "Games for tablets on Intel Cherry Trail" they write about 600 games tested, on the current GPD WIN three times less, probably.
But in general, yes, better with clave than without.

I wonder if GPD2 will have similar add. upgrade offers with 16Gb Ram ..

January 15, the campaign should start on indiegogo, sort of.
