I had one of their original GPD XD devices. The battery died in 3 months and their support was non-existent. Until they get proper support in the US, I'd have to say a hard pass on anything they make. It is a shame though, as the product seemed nice while it lasted.
Can you believe Apple doesn't even include a serial port on the macbook air? : 3
So, you-re getting i5-460m level performance back from Q3'10 in a future product. I'll pass...
This device should technically be a bit faster at multithreaded tasks due to its true quad-core processor compared to the i5-460M's hyperthreaded dual cores, and of course the integrated graphics should be a decent amount faster and the efficiency a lot higher. And to put things in perspective, the Celeron N4100 should actually be faster than the processor in current "mid-range" smartphones costing more than this. For those needing a compact Windows/Linux device to interface with hardware or run certain software in the field, this could be a nice product.
Doctor Rob :
Why not use like the Ryzen 3 2200U or so.. a LOT faster and not a lot more power usage.. but much more user friendly as everything will run a lot faster?
The N4100 has a 6 watt TDP, while the 2200U has a 15 watt TDP. With a device this small, that might make a notable difference to battery life and thermals.
