One Netbook One Mix 2S Notebook Yoga Pocket Laptop - SILVER ONE MIX

One Netbook One Mix 2S Notebook Yoga Pocket Laptop - SILVER ONE MIX


7-inch IPS screen - best for your business travel

The One Netbook One Mix 2S pocket laptop has clearly positioned their products as "office computers for business travel". This market position inherits the DNA of the UMPC. As the UMPC is originally designed for business travelling users.    

 One Netbook One Mix 2S pocket laptop 

This One Netbook One Mix 2S pocket laptop I'm reviewing is equipped with Intel eighth Generation Core M3-8100Y processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB PCIE solid-state hard disk, and Intel UHD Graphics 615 Graphics Chipset.

I used to think that the biggest disadvantage of UMPC is the memory. As the previous processor didn't support 4GB or more of the RAM, so there was a very slow and bad running speed and using experience.

However, the recent generation processors gradually support higher memory capacity, which makes the overall performance significantly promoted. This One Netbook One Mix 2S pocket laptop supports 8GB RAM and 256GB PCIE solid-state hard disk. Although the Core M3-8100Y processor has an ordinary performance, but it is enough for the overall system running smoothly.

As a business-oriented product, the portability is taken into account in the design of One Netbook One Mix 2S. It is designed to support 360-degree reversal of the shaft and equipped with a 7-inch IPS touch screen with 1920 x 1200 resolution. So it will have a good visual experience. But we don't recommend you to zoom the page display by 100% during the use, as you will feel uncomfortable because of the very samll font size. On the contrary, you will have better reading experience when you turn the page display scale to 150% or 200%.

Multiple operation forms and comfortable hand feeling

For this Windows system device with a small screen, stylus is still necessary. The One Mix 2S supports stylus operation, coupled with the vertical screen operation of Windows 10 system, you can record information in the case of single-handed holding, which is a very friendly function for business users.

Besides the stylus operation, the One Netbook One Mix 2S can be also operated by keyboard and touch pad. Limited by the 7-inch body, this product cannot be equipped with a conventional laptop touch pad, so it can only adopt the control device like the little red key on the ThinkPad. It is located under the two keys of B and N. The touch pad supports both touch and click operation, so it can achieve the function of mouse with your single finger. The practical using experience is good, but when the screen zooming is small, frequent sliding is needed to make the mouse pointer run for a long distance.

Under the space bar, there are two left and right keys functioned like the keys on the normal touch pad. The fingerprint reader is located between the right key and the directional key. Therefore, although the One Netbook One Mix 2S is a very small, it has all the functions of common laptops.

Another thing I have to mention is the hand feeling of the One Mix 2S's keyboard. The keyboard of One Netbook One Mix 2S is very classic. Personally, I like this keyboard very much and it is very comfortable to press. However, due to the compact space arrangement, the key position of One Mix 2S is slightly different from that of the normal keyboard, so you may need a period of time to adapt to it.

Multiple interface

You might think that such a small laptop would have poor scalability. Of course, a 7-inch body's connectivity is surely not as well as a larger laptop, but the One Mix 2S still provides you multiple interface, such as headset, TF slot, Type-C, Micro HDMI, USB 3.0, which are enough to meet your daily use.

The One Netbook One Mix 2S + iPhone = the best combo of business travel

The location of 7-inch handheld office notebook alone will attract many people's attention. So how small is it? Let's make a compare it with the familiar iPhone XS MAX.  

One Netbook One Mix 2S vs iPhone  

From the comparison, it can be seen that the size of One Mix 2S is indeed small, which can be carried in a pocket. Moreover, for office users who do not have high performance requirements, the One Mix 2S also provides video output interface. It can be said that it is a very ideal woking state to put the One Mix 2S into the pocket or into the bag when commuting.

In addition, if you are on a business trip, the One Netbook One Mix 2S and a mobile phone are enough for you to work, and you will feel more convenient to show your PPT, edit words, send and receive emails, etc.

Performance evaluation

Finally, let's take a look at the performance and working experience of this One Mix 2S.

As we have mentioned before, the hardware configuration of OneNotebook One Mix 2S is equipped with Intel core M3-8100Y processor, 8GB memory, 256GB PCIE solid-state disk and Intel UHD Graphics 615 core Graphics chipset. It is not a big problem to meet the basic business office requirements.

As the hardware performance continues to improve, today's low-power consumption processors also perform better. Especially after the new generation core processor supports 8GB memory, it breaks the performance bottleneck of original UMPC. The core M3-8100Y on this notebook is the eighth generation core processor based on Amber lakey architecture. The base frequency is 1.1Ghz, and the acceleration speed can be up to 3.4Ghz. The TDP is only 5W, and the tertiary cache is up to 4MB.

In terms of comprehensive performance, we used PCMark 10 to evaluate the machine. The test mode is the default mode of PCMark 10, and the final score is 2,558, which indicates that it can provide a smooth experience for dealing with daily documentation, pictures, Web, and basic video processing.

Office experience

The One Netbook One Mix 2S 1 is mainly positioned as a business travel portable laptop product, so it is very important for us to judge whether it can meet the demand of lightweight office application.

Our practical using experience shows that it is very convenient to send and receive emails, edit Excel or Word documents, and demonstrate PPT by using One Mix 2S. In the past, we carried at least 1kg of 11-inch or 13-inch notebooks when working on business trip. But now, we only need to carry this One Mix 2S pocket laptop with just around 500g to complete some basic tasks.

Office experience 

Game experience

Although One Mix 2S is mainly designed for the business travel, but don't underestimate its UHD 615 core graphics card. As it can still smoothly run some games such as the LOL. So if you're just looking for a laptop to mainly deal with your business working and occasionally watch videos online or play games, the One Netbook One Mix 2S pocket laptop is a good choice.

Game experience 

The verdict

The One Netbook One Mix 2S, a business-focused laptop, will make you feel very convenient at least on the lightweight business work. However, because the position of the key is slightly different from the regular keyboard, it might take some time for you to adapt to the keyboard. In general, One Mix 2S is hard to be a first choice for users, but it is absolutely a second good choice except the regular laptops, and the first choice for the business travel users.
