    For what it's worth, I'm extremely happy with the performance of the 7y30 in the Pocket 2.

    Not sure the 8100y is worth that increase in price.

    Also if you push the Pocket 2 hard it gets hot as ****. That increase in TDP and clock speed might throttle down pretty fast.

    That is good to know. Have you monitored your max CPU temps under load with the pocket 2? Just curious.

    Not yet, but I'll install HWMonitor and track CPU temps. The most "load" it gets seems to be when I watch recorded lectures that utilize a flash-based system. It seems like simple video, but that flash video in Chrome taxes the Pocket bigtime. The thing gets burning hot and the fan tries hard the entire time.

    yes, I also remember reading that there's no backlight in this one.
    by the way, there's a coupon with 10%off for geekbuying, brings the preorder price of the amber lake version below 600€, TABLETLW. alternatively, you can get 32$off with GKBAUG32.

    While impatiently waiting ing for mu device to ship I keep scouring the web for more info and found this video of the 8100 version which I think has some kind of usage graphs while playing games maybe processor & memory? I really have no idea...

    Some initial benchmarks at liliputing:
    https://liliputing.com/2018/11/one-mix-2s-yoga-mini-laptop-benchmarks-core-m3-8100y-processor.html

    Looks like my hope is come true with the One Mix 2 performing more like the GPD Win 2 and a bit stronger than the Pocket 2. Curious to see how loud it'll be and how weak battery life will be -don't have great expectations, but I guess if I can get around 4h of moderately challenging work done (and maybe around 6h of light tasks), I'll be fine.

    The preorder at geekbuying is ending this weekend, I hope that means that they'll be shipping soon...
