    It's because of these reviews that I went supporting GPD HK. Unfortunately, that company declined all my refund requests and did not even send me any product from their previous campaign. And here they are now, trying to rip off customers with another campaign. I have no idea how many percent did not receive their products but letting you guys know, Indiegogo and GPD won't be helpful at all where you're amongst the ones who they sent no products to. I did back their MicroPC campaign and they already started selling before backers even got hold of theirs. Most who got it are reporting bad quality. @t

    I probably could use this for making letters, quotations, and presentations. Programs for use by a businessman in a meeting somewhere other than his office. I wouldn't use it to play video games (except Sudoku, gotta have Sudoku) or for editing videos or photos. (",)

    I use mine to remotely administrate Unix servers while on the go. Mostly when I'm on the train to work and people are screaming into my ear that they can't login into their user session. Like they can't wait just 15 minutes until I enter the damn office. Anyway, this has replaced my BlackBerry as my go to device for SSH'ing into servers and it works wonderfully. I'm running Linux on mine as that is what I prefer, though I also have ChromeOS with Android support as it's second OS.

    The version I'm using is the Black, 8GB, 128GB, Intel M3, so it's faster than the Celeron version depicted on LTT.

    I think I'd still prefer the nub mouse, just in the corner, and frankly the fact there is no GNU support from the factory on the 2 is a bit of bum (since I thought something like this might be good for a little ROS node to debug robots or something) but the fact its a lot faster is very nice.

      Brendin C no. essentially it would be a pocket surface laptop. something microsoft was rumored to do called the andromeda but with two touch screens that fold in the center instead. this is more practical.

    I don’t think that card slot dimension is a tooling error. I think it’s to protect your card from accidentally getting popped out. I actually like the way it’s depressed in there.

    I think the use case for this is sweaty guys like me who want a solid budget option that you don't moving around and beating up a lot. You could easily toss this around, you don't have to baby it not necessarily because of its build quality but size, you don't have to manage weight or flexing of materials (less torque applied by the wieght at the end when holding from one edge).

    A quick and dirty beet it up word processor that's also perfect for browsing and some mobile entertainment in the form of emulators, indie games, and streaming video.

    I see no point in investing in a palmtop/mini laptop only to have windows brick it after 1-3 updates..
    I like the concept however unless you increase its foot print to allow atleast a 1TB nvme or sata m.2 ssd it pointless to
    I own 2 dells in 11-13 inch spec and just windows updates 32-128GB is not enough on a win 10 platform..
    I would be careful what things you go slapping into slots what you think might be a ram slot might well be sim card slot..
    to be honest given the lack of actual onboard storage I would likely suggest to vendors to make this an android tool or atleast make it wide enough so either a sata or nvme m.2 could be used as inbuilt storage medium as this make more sense if you are going to play with windows 10 as its preferred OS use..

    the cool thing about your commercials or sponsors is there all computer/tech stuff which is what your viewers are into, thus I enjoy and look forward to what you sponsor as I believe you just don't sponsor anything, only things of value...this works great for me as a viewer and for a company like Origin PC as they get a audience of like minded computer people that focus on quality...your a Genius.

    wait about 4 or 6 years and you'll have a device that could play any game between 2006 to 2014 and low spec games from 2015 to 2020. Hell, I'd buy it as a pocket pc just to take it to a friends place or while on vacation just to play rocket league or unreal tournament, all you'd need is this, an hdmi, an xbox controller reciever or usb hub and some xbox controllers.
