    Yup, that was my very first thought. A hideous device that..... just, no.
    GPD are losing me with this one.

    Now that is cool, but the weird bumpy curves ruin it for me. This format looks great on the switch because it's all flush.

    I don't think I could get away with using the keyboard personally, but this is probably one of the better setups I've seen, if you're looking for this kind of thing.

    My first thought. I'd have said some kind of tilt screen like on the HTC TYTN II would work to allow the device to be laid flat and used as some bastardised laptop.

    Re: GPD Win 3 PC gaming portable uses the slider form factor

    Having a usable keyboard, and thus essentially a mini PC that just happened to also be capable enough for some decent gaming, was supposed to be GPD's big selling point, I thought....
    If this really does end up like the aforementioned UMPC, it'd be nigh-on pointless except as a glorified thumboard.

    looks very interesting, could be worth a punt if cheap enough.
