    18 replies, posted
Hello. I need suggestions. I wanted a tiny netbook that run Windows (not windows mobile). Its size should be around 5-7 inches. Basically windows netbook with the size of large smartphones, that I can put in my pocket. Is there any such netbooks?
GPD Win ?
Gpd Win looks awesome. Is Asus Eee PC 701 4g any good?
you're buying a 7 year old computer saying "any good" would be a bit much
I remember having 2 EEE PC's in storage EEE pc is like the worst thing
Can you describe how bad ASUS EEE PC is? Can it even play GBA emulator? Or visual novels?

Looks decent enough. I saw it on sale on Ebay for about 10 UK pound sterling. Is that the right price for it?
I mean for 10$ what can go wrong worst case scenario is the harddrives dead or dying and needs replacement but (hopefully) that should be easy to replace. Battery could be dead too. I remember tearing apart 2 EEE600's for the HDD's, part of me regrets it since aside from a dead battery it ran windows 10 finish outside not chrome not working. I could even run team viewer actually fairly decently, and thats a program that fucking eats memory.

As a warning however, while a complicated thing for some, people love it enough that it clearly pays off.

Toshiba, Sattelite Click mini. Wont fit in your pocket, will play 100p netflix, Fallout 1,2 Hearthstone etc.
I dunno if the RPi would be better for emulation honestly. It's impressive how much it achieves considering the limitations of its hardware (even compared to, say, modern smartphones) but even a laptop from the mid or late 2000's can still outdo it in a lot of cases. That said, that EEE PC isn't just a seven year old computer, it's a seven year old computer with a seven year old Atom, so I wouldn't be too shocked if the RPi did actually turn out to be better. Regardless I'd totally buy that Atom for $10 tho. Worst case scenario I slap Linux or BSD on it and use it as a terminal to ssh into my other computers :v:
EEE PC is unbearably slow IMO unless your putting something like Xubuntu or lighter on it
Laptops THAT small are a very niche market: [url]https://liliputing.com/2017/02/gpd-pocket-7-inch-laptop-pre-order-399-crowdfunding.html[/url]
What about a windows tablet? I have one of thees [url]http://www.microcenter.com/product/440932/winbook_tw802_tablet_-_black[/url] and its pretty good for the price. 2gb ram and intel atom will be fine for emulators and most 2d games.
HP Stream 7 is another cheap option similar to the above

That rules the RPi right out unless he goes for a custom build with his own enclosure, his own screen, and his own power supply. And even then it's not exactly portable.

Single core ARM11, 528 Mhz, without floating point capabilities with all the overhead of Android 2.1. :v:
Honestly OP, I get the impression that you want more of a pocket gaming device than an actual laptop. I could be wrong though, so just ignore this if it doesn't apply to you. For gaming, you might honestly be better off finding a phone that's a couple years old and sticking RetroArch on it. Controls might be awkward because of the touch screen but there's a great library of GBA games that don't require reflexes where it could work. I even managed to beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow on a phone touch screen so it's definitely doable. Again, if you need desktop games or apps ignore me, but if you just want a pocket emulation machine you wouldn't go wrong by just getting a decent smartphone.
