    Not a compelling form factor for me, especially as the controls seem quite close to the sides. That was quite awkward to hold on the DS Lite, leading to hand cramps after about 10 minutes of gaming.
    I'll stick with lusting after the earlier GPD WINs, I think.

    Very niche product i think, and at that price i would go for a proper laptop instead.
    But of course this small it can go places a laptop can not go, but i do not have such needs.

    This is still a product that part of me really wants - the same part of me that wanted one of the first "available to consumers" UMPCs 15 years ago....but the reality is I would never use it past day one.

    I've found this already with xCloud/SteamLink et al - the idea is great, you can play AAA games on the sofa without a PC/Laptop..but the reality is those games were made for a different form factor and bigger screens, and on most of them it really shows.

    Then there is the fact that if I do really want to play a AAA PC game on the go, I have my phone + a £30 flydigi wee2 and well, it works.
    So the UMPC only really comes into it's own for me on a flight or somewhere without internet - but then I have a switch, or even better....I can have a few hours without a screen in front of me

    Yet despite all that, and every bit of common sense remaining telling me it's a really niche product that I would never use...I still really want one

    Not buying though!

    No mention of settings for the benchmarks apart from resolution?

    I owned (eventually) three UMPC devices. Not at the same time. I loved the format, despite the Asus model sporting a celeron, along with rubbish battery life. They just didn't seem to have a market. Eventually, they were re-branded as 'mids'... which also failed.

    720p (Cries).
