    Interesting, not sure I'd have one though.
    Certainly be a nice mobile machine.

    I might very well pick up one too, not least if the price are righ

    I just wish it had AMD inside instead.

    Re: GPD launches the Win Max 8-inch gaming laptop

    i'd like one of these, but I think it will be too expensive to justify - I expect around the £1000 mark for this, which is too much for me.

    Neat little device though like most of their range.

    I hope intel pulls another atom and starts giving away decent APUs for laptops like this

    certainly looks like an engineering feat, but not sure who the target audience is supposed to be?

    imho it's too small to be used for practical purposes and if purpose is gaming i'd rather have a nintendo switch.

    Supposed to be people like me, who prefer PC over tablet interfaces and want clamshell form factor mini-laptops with proper keyboards, while playing games that aren't limited to just Sony's or Nintendo's catalogue.

    Just not quite at those prices. I'd have to wait until this is obsolete before I could afford one off eBay.

    Would be great when travelling too,as its small enough to fit in a ruck sack,with other stuff. I wonder if it will run The Witcher 3??
