ONEXPLAYER Mini 7 inch Portable Gaming PC is now available

The ONEXPLAYER Mini is a portable gaming PC with an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and at least 512 GB of storage. With a 7-inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen IPS LCD screen surrounded by game controllers, it’s essentially a Windows-powered alternative to a Nintendo Switch.

It’s also the smaller sibling of the original ONEXPLAYER, which has similar specs but a larger 8.4-inch screen. First announced in November, the ONEXPLAYER Mini is now available for purchase in the ONEXPLAYER store.

The 7-inch model has a list price of $1,259 and up, but people who buy one within the first 24 hours (as of 12:00 a.m. EST Friday, January 14, 2022), will be able to save up to 17% and choose one for $1039 and up.

The small computer measures 262 x 108 x 23 mm (10.3″ x 4.3″ x 0.9″) and weighs 589 grams (1.3 pounds). This makes it smaller and lighter than the original ONEXPLAYER or most others including the AYA Neo or the Valve Steam Deck.

Device Dimensions Screen size Weight
ONEXPLAYER Mini 7 inches 262 x 108 x 23mm 589 grams
UNEXPLAYER 8.4 inches 280x128x25mm 825 grams
Valve Vapor Deck 7 inches 298 x 117 x 49mm 669 grams
AYA Neo 7 inches 255x106x20mm 650 grams
GPD Win 3 5.5 inches 198 x 92 x 27mm 560 grams
Nintendo Switch (with Joy-cons) Screen size 238 x 102 x 14mm 399 grams

Other features include DDR4-4266 memory, PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe storage, 40.25Wh battery and 100W USB-C fast charger, support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and ports including:

  • 2 x USB Type-C (full function for power, data and video)
  • 1 USB 3.0 Type-A port
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio

The portable gaming PC features stereo speakers, dual vibration motors, game controllers with two linear triggers, and a cooling system that includes an aluminum heatsink, two copper cooling tubes, and a fan .

Netbook says you should expect up to 8 hours of video playback time from the 10,455mAh battery, but expect that figure to go path down if you are

Optional accessories include a carrying case (which is included for people ordering during the one-day launch promotion) and a foldable keyboard. an official the docking station is also in the works.

Keep in mind that even people who participate in the launch promotion will end up with a device that costs significantly more than a Valve Steam Deck despite having less graphics processing power. And while One Netbook may have more experience delivering first-party hardware than Valve, it’s also a relatively small Chinese company that generally doesn’t offer the same level of support and service to Western customers as you would. could find in companies with a greater presence outside of China. So proceed with caution before placing an order.

That said, the ONEXPLAYER Mini ships with Windows 11 rather than a custom Linux distro like Steam Deck. It has a high resolution screen (for better or worse). And it’s available with up to 2TB of storage.

And when I had the opportunity to review the original ONEXPLAYER 8.4 inch portable gaming PC, I was quite impressed with the build quality and performance, and the hardware of the ONEXPLAYER Mini is almost identical in many respects. So there are probably worse ways to spend $1039 or more…assuming that’s the kind of money you’re willing to spend on a portable gaming device in the first place.

Here is an overview of the catalog prices/introductory promotional prices for the ONEXPLAYER Mini and its accessories:

  • ONEXPLAYER Mini with 512GB SSD for $1,259 ($1,039 at launch)
  • ONEXPLAYER Mini with 1TB SSD for $1399 ($1179 at launch)
  • ONEXPLAYER Mini with 2TB SSD for $1599 ($1379 at launch)
