    One Netbook OneGx1 is a 7-inch "5G cloud gaming" machine

    Looks like a shrunken Alienware Area 51m but is powered by a 7W Intel Core i5-10210Y.

    Okay, so it won't run Crysis.

    I bet a lot of them will end up running Bettercap, however.

    In all certainly, getting a Switch would result in a better gaming experience for a third of the price.

    5fps at 720p. Why. Sure, use this to play all those games you've collected from GoG and HumbleBundle over the years that don't need modern features... but all that money saved on games you've just spazzed on this device.

    The exact device everybody says they want but nobody buys or uses. And I say that as a former owner of a Sony Vaio P.

    I just cant see any real need for such device.
    - you can take it to vacation trip! - Well I prefer to enjoy the trip than staying in the hotel gaming =P
    - you can take it with you on your business trip - Oh but I got full blown laptop then
    - you can use it in public transportation! - Yes, as well as mobile
    - you can ... ?

    There are people that will buy this device, and some of them will use it, but it is centrally not for me.

    I really, REALLY wanted a Jornada 720 back in the day. ARM processor running cut down Windows 2000. It was an awesome little device. But, I had several little things like this - Palm handhelds and so on. I used only one to its potential (a PDA which was made of metal and reminded me properly of a PADD from Star Trek). The rest were really a bit of a waste of money.

    When smartphones with proper bluetooth keyboards came out, these kinds of devices died a death. You can just get a smartphone or a tablet and do similar things. If you want to stream, you can.

    These kinds of things do have a place for sysadmins who need an x86 machine with a decent keyboard, some reasonable chooch factor and want it in a small package they can sling in a backpack. Hence me saying they'll be running Bettercap.

    As a gaming package - if you're relying on 5G streaming, why not just use a smartphone? If you're not getting enough FPS to run anything decent, why not just get a cheapo Windows 10 tablet/laptop with keyboard for £200-£300? They'll run old games if you want them to.

    It's cool that something like this exists.

    I wouldn't buy one though - unless it's in the low hundreds of £££ but I suspect not!

    I was happy enough with a mobile Haswell i5 iGPU when I spent months working away from home a while back, playing 10 year old multiplayer RTS on the hotel wifi!

    Too expensive. $840 it is a price of a cheap gaming laptop with gtx 1650.

    Eventually -but at nearly £1k...it's a bit overkill right now A £50 netbook + dongle would do the job for wardriving duties rather well

    But nothing screams "l33t hax0r" like overkill and little blue lights!
