Gaming laptops are usually big and thick and mini gaming laptops are particularly new and they aren’t as powerful as the standard ones. But they can be quiet better than expected. The One GX1 by One-Netbook is a mini portable gaming laptop, which kind of looks like a shrunk Alienware Area 51m. Unlike the GPD WIN Max which has built-in controllers, the One GX1 has detachable controllers. The laptop is incredibly light and has some impressive specs.
- Processor: up to Intel® Core™ i5-10210Y Processor (6M Cache, up to 4.00 GHz)
- Graphics: Intel Iris Plus iGPU
- Display: 7-inch, 1920×1200 IPS
- Storage: up to 512Gb NVMe SSD
- RAM: up to 16GB LPDDR4
- I/O: 2x USB Type-C 3.0, 1x USB Type-A 3.0, Micro HDMI, Audio Jack, Sim card, Micro SD
- Battery: 12000mAh
The One GX1 is not a perfect laptop and it has some significant issues. The performance is not as good as the GPD WIN Max. The Bluetooth controllers have latency issues and it uses an integrated GPU. Although the screen resolution is higher than the GPD WIN Max. The keyboard is very small and cramped but it’s better than expected with clicky buttons and tactile feedback. And the keyboard has RGB lighting too which would seem quite cool.

The processor in this machine is an i5-10210Y with 4 cores and 8 threads and it can boost up to 4.00 GHz. The base model has 8GB RAM and 256 GB SSD. You can also get up to 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD which is quite a lot for a 7-inch laptop. The laptop also has a sim card slot but the base model uses only wifi. One-Netbook also announced another version of the ONE GX1 with Intel Tiger Lake processors.
