GPD Pocket 2 Celeron Edition.

Great little device, decided to migrate from a Surface Go and find it snappier, more roomy and much more fun. It is surprisingly fast, zero problems setting it up, have added a 512 SD card although the 256 gb internal is a breath of fresh air after the 128 on the Go. Don't miss the pen and have an external webcam which is actually more flexible. Fan is a little noticeable but my old Mac Book 13 drown it out. Use with an external mouse and monitor so not had to engage the optical mouse much, although this is very responsive. The ‘mouse' buttons are a little stiff so this may take a while to become 2nd nature. USB charging is so much faster and efficient than the Go. Still need to push the battery but so far its been mainly desktop bound.

Got it delivered last day of 2020. Very pleased with it, bought it to use with Amateur Radio equipment / updates etc. However have now set it up with Netflix/ BBC iPlayer/ iTunes etc and find it great for watching programs on it using Bluetooth headphones. Definitely a bargain as there was a 30% discount on it over holiday period.

First of all the build quality, it is very good, I can't fault it, it looks fantastic.
Performance, for what I use it for again it's fine, it's mostly used for office tasks, surfing the web and watching YouTube, all of which it does without any issue.
I had seen a few reviewers criticise the keyboard, well I am afraid it's a seven inch machine, you can't expect a 14 inch keyboard experience, so that is harsh to complain about it.
Although I do have two minor complaints, the first is, this machine should have an illuminated keyboard, it's hard to use in a dark environment and secondary, why did the touch sensor lose the ability to double tap, please enable it, in a firmware update, other than that I can't fault it.

Nice bit of kit

Well very impressed with this, well made quality product, 5 minutes out of the box and up and running. Seems fast enough although I expect it would do even better with a slightly faster processor however for the price it is more than acceptable. Would I recommend it, yes I would with the understanding it is not a power laptop. Looking forward to more time spent on it.
