More compact than the GPD Win Max, One-Notebook's OneGx1 is now up for pre-order in both 4G and 5G variants, but it doesn't come cheap: the US$839 model only sports WiFi, 8 GB of memory, and 256 GB of internal storage, and the price goes as high as US$1,318 for the 5G + 16 GB + 512 GB model.

While full-size gaming laptops sometimes live up to the expectations and can handle intense gaming sessions without any hiccups caused by overheating-induced CPU/GPU clocks throttling, miniature gaming laptops are more of a visual concept before anything else. For example, the One-Notebook OneGx1 might be inspired by the Alienware Area-51m, but it will never get near it in terms of performance.

However, the 7-inch OneGx1 is now finally available for pre-order and — although far from delivering much more than a design/size "Wow!" factor — promises to be the first such portable that delivers 5G connectivity in a very compact package. Sadly, the introductory prices are far from attractive, especially if we add into the equation the fact that we are not talking about a piece of hardware that comes from a huge experienced brand such as Dell/Alienware, Lenovo, or Asus:

  • US$839: WiFi, 8 GB, 256 GB
  • US$1,018: WiFi, 16 GB, 512 GB
  • US$933: 4G LTE, 8 GB, 256 GB
  • US$1,094: 4G LTE, 16 GB, 512 GB
  • US$1,140: 5G, 8 GB, 256 GB
  • US$1,318: 5G, 16 GB, 512 GB

All models mentioned above come with a 10th-gen Intel Core i5-10210Y Amber Lake processor, although One-Notebook had promised that the OneGx1 would use 11th-gen Tiger Lake parts. Since those chips are not available yet, the buyers of this miniature laptop will have to get it with the aforementioned Amber Lake processor and UHD graphics instead of Intel Xe.

The game controllers are available for an additional US$45 and the Tiger Lake models — now dubbed "OneGx1 Pro" — should arrive later this year. Those who have enough cash to throw around might want to check out the OneGx1 pre-order pages at Geekbuying and Banggood.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
