Netbooks are long buried in the history of failures a project that began with the best of intentions but the implementation was horrific. Slow CPUs, even slower HDDs and poor quality displays are just some of the disadvantages most of these devices carried. It seems that the required technology was not there yet. But now it is and allows for incredible little machines to be manufactured. We are talking about the GPD Pocket, a 7″ mini laptop with great performance.
The GPD Pocket comes with the Intel Atom x7-Z8750 inside, accompanied by an impressive 8GB RAM as well as 128GB of storage (eMMC). Despite its small display, it comes with a FHD resolution and plenty of available ports: 1x USB Type-C 3.0, 1x USB Type-A 3.0, HDMI D Type, and a 3.5mm headset jack. It runs on Windows 10 but the most impressive of all is the 7000mAh battery capacity that gives the little computer almost 12 hours of use.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t available in the US initially and you could find it only via Amazon for much more bucks than it cost elsewhere. Thankfully, Walmart being a huge retailer, added it to its product lineup and is selling it now for just $479.99! You can get it here.
