One Netbook launches an enhanced version of the ONEXPLAYER portable gaming PC. When the company started shipping units earlier this year, it was available with an Intel Core i7-1185G7 processor. But the new ONEXPLAYER 1S contains an even higher performance Core i7-1195G7 chip.
It’s pre-order for $ 1,199 on AliExpress (or a bit more if you want accessories like a detachable keyboard and / or a carrying case).
The ONEXPLAYER One Netbook looks a bit like an oversized Nintendo Switch. It has an 8.4-inch, 2560 x 1600-pixel touchscreen surrounded by game controllers. But under the hood, the ONEXPLAYER is a full-fledged Windows PC with an 11th generation Intel Core processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics. .
I had the chance to review a pre-release model with a Core i7-1165G7 processor in May, and was impressed with the overall performance and build of the system.
The new model has a bit more horsepower, which should lead to at least a small increase in performance. Here’s a quick look at some key differences between the U-series Intel Core i7 Tiger Lake chips:
|Core i7-1165G7||Core i7-1185G7||Core i7-1195G7|
|Cores / Wires||4/8||4/8||4/8|
|Max Turbo Freq||4.7 GHz||4.8 GHz||5 GHz|
|TDP||12 – 28W||12 – 28W||12 – 28W|
|TDP-down / -up freq||1.2 GHz / 2.8 GHz||1.2 GHz / 3 GHz||1.3 GHz / 2.9 GHz|
|Maximum GPU frequency||1.3 GHz||1.35 GHz||1.4 GHz|
The ONEXPLAYER 1S has 16GB of LPDDR4x memory and a 1TB SSD. While the processor is new, other specs are largely the same as for the model I reviewed earlier this year.
The portable gaming computer measures approximately 11 “x 5” x 1 “and weighs just over 1.8 pounds, has a 59 Wh battery and comes with a 65 W USB-C charger, and features front-facing stereo speakers, a 3.5mm audio jack, a fingerprint reader in the power button and Bluetooth 5 support.
It has a built-in kickstand and ports, including two USB4 (40 Gbps) ports, a USB 3.0 Type-A port and a microSD card reader. The controllers include two analog sticks, a D-Pad, four action buttons and four shoulder buttons, two of which have linear triggers.
There are also physical buttons to display an onscreen keyboard, return to the Windows Start screen, Start and Return keys, and a Turbo button that adjusts the processor TDP. You can find more details in the Liliputing ONEXPLAYER review.
