Possibly The World’s Smallest Laptop, a 24 hour review

Just over a month ago, I announced that The Trade Counter would be stocking what is probably the world’s smallest laptop, (Please do get in touch with me of you know of smaller laptop that is currently on sale, I would love to hear about it!)

I  brought two in to the country one for me for a long term test or permanent use and one for short loan/demo purposes along with some other goodies that I write more about soon. Th demo one is still in its box and will be set up and ready by this Friday (20/07/2019). My one has been set up with Microsoft Office 2013,  Google Chrome and a few other more things including Adobe Creative Suite. I started by using it  around the home office and the house and it worked well. Reading emails, browsing the web, etc.

I then took it out for a bit of  a test run. We went to the pub! I ordered a pint of Hop House which was lovely and set about giving it a good run. I started with some of the Adobe CS applications that I rely on for producing the Trade House Magazine. Within about 10 minutes I had worked out that I would not want to be using this laptop for a solid day’s graft on these applications and that if I was away on business my 10 inch Asus convertible t103 laptop was the better tool for the job. Certainly this laptop would be no good for using some of the tools my 18 years in the IT trade such as VMware or Visual Studio.

Moving on after ordering another pint I went through remoting in to the home office, which it excelled at and then remotely going through a 70 page contract. I followed this with updating an absolutely massive spreadsheet. (25 Worksheets and more formulae than Einstein ever thought existed!) Boy, did it work well. It did not use up a lot of battery either

Move forward to this morning and it worked well on the road with 2 meetings and some work between these meetings. What I did not bank on was the shouts of wow!, where did you get that? and can you get me one?, !. The GPD pocket was certainly a hit. I think I got more customers for the GPD pocket than for what I was at these two meetings for. It does look stunning in the flesh an I am not the only one to think so.

What it cannot do on a full time basis  in my opinion is fully replace a bigger but it still small laptop such as the Asus T103 that I am very fond of. However as an “always there” piece of kit it is very good, especially if a keyboard is needed. It even fits comfortably in a large jacket pocket too.

One thing is for sure I like it. I will write more in the next two months or so.

I have demo stock available and it is possible that I may order more demo stock soon.
