Cons

On December 20th, One Netbook announced the latest entry in their line of gaming handhelds. Called the OneXPlayer Mini, a successor to their wildly popular OneXPlayer line of handhelds.

This announcement comes hot off the heels of the recently released AMD variant of the OneXPlayer. But curiously, it features the same intel processor as seen in the OneXPlayer 1S (the i7-1195G7).

Overall, the OneXPlayer is more of a lateral move than a straight upgrade, assuming the build quality remains the same. For many, the main issue with the OneXPlayer 1S was it’s huge size rendering it not-so-portable.

Of course, if this is too small for you, the original OneXPlayer 1S is also an option!
