GPS Win is an ultra mini laptop packing mere 5.5 inch display and definitely does brings back memories of UMPC days when we had ultra mobile personal computers like Viliv S7 in the market packing small display and real desktop version of windows operating system. That said, almost all the companies making UMPC bolted out as there was simply not enough demand and to be honest, the operating systems were not optimized for smaller displays. A lot has changed since then thanks to the windows 8.1 and windows 10 OS, we now have the software that supports smaller screens and high DPI displays.
GPD Win specifications include 5.5 inch touchscreen display with HD resolution which is 1280 x 720 pixels, Intel Atom X5 Z8550 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage that is expandable via micro SD card slot. The company has promised that up to 128GB of micro SD card is supported.
Earlier the GPD had enlisted Intel Atom X5 Z8500 on its spec sheet but we are glad to see the upgraded and tweaked Atom X5 Z8550 onboard. Here is how the GPD Win keyboard looks like – clearly it is optimized for gaming.
Other than that, GPD Win spec sheet also includes HDMI port, USB 3.0, audio jack and and 6000 mAh battery. For connectivity, this mini PC offers dual band wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.1. The company has tweaked the keyboard layout and has added an xBox button to the mix.
GPD Win price is 299 dollars and shipping will commence sometime in the month of October.
