Why does this cost as much as an ultrabook when chink tablets/emulator machines with better hardware are $100?

Because the company making it doesn't have the capital nor the factories to mass produce, meaning it costs more for them to make each unit. That cost gets passed to the customer.

What would be a reason to get that shit? I like the idea, but I see no reason for it in 2016.

Andrew Lewis

Because you want a UMPC. It's a shitty UMPC, but not like there are many choices for modern ones.

I do see a use for it though, just wish it was cheaper to get a bunch of them. Can even use it as a phone, like a much better smartphone.

How much are they? How do they compare to ultrabooks and modern tablets?

I'm waiting for the GPD Win. Shit's going to be good assuming GPD is going to deliver.
Pyra is ARM, meaning it's literally an angry birds processor. GPD is a x86-64 Atom, about as powerful as a 2008 PC, enough for me to do some actual DAW work.
DAWs, playing old PC games, basic coding

EVERYONE who wants an open handheld should get an Nvidia shield. I'm fucking sick of autists thinking that linux for arm is a better mobile gaming platform than android. It objectively isn't and it's fucking insane to think so

I was talking about the Pyra. My bad, I actually think that the GDP win is a step in the right direction. I'll wait a couple gens and see if it catches on. I'd love to see one with a Core-m Processor; I'd even pay $400 for one

hacked 3ds or a hacked vita is kind of similar to them
I don't remember when the pyra comes out, it's overpriced and weak

Hardware keyboards on UMPCs are even worse than software keyboards, and if you want a gamepad then use a bluetooth one or a Vita.

Carter Hernandez

Hardware keyboards on UMPCs are even worse than software keyboards
I disagree wholeheartedly. Again, it's all about personal preference. You're okay with touchscreen cancer, not everyone is. You're clearly content with using your phone, so just use your fucking phone. Don't go whining that I prefer something different.
just carry even more shit
top kek

Joseph Roberts
Joseph Roberts

It's not a personal preference. It's just being inept at using software keyboards. And a modern phone and a Vita together would be thinner than this.

Carter Cruz

I don't get it, why wouldn't I program with it?

Julian Williams

It's definitely a fucking personal preference. I type faster on software keyboards, doesn't mean I'd rather use a feedbackless piece of glass.
And a modern phone and a Vita together would be thinner than this
Still two devices which means two pockets compared to the one this would take up.

Would you get better performance from the GDP Win with Win10, Win7, or Linux?

Tiny screen to read lots and lots of text?
I had a communicator with 3" screen back in the time and I perfectly read lots and lots of text.

James Sanders

This. My current UMPC has a 4.5" screen and I read text on it all the time.

Asher Roberts

So realistically these are good for emulating older games and doing desktop stuff with your thumbs?

Can I attach a 20% mkg to it for fun and profit? I'm wondering if investing into one of these would be a better option than a tablet.

Alexander Fisher
Alexander Fisher

Tiny screen to read lots and lots of text?
it's 5.5 inches, that's bigger than my phone and about the size as most phone and they are plenty big enough for reading lots of texts

I was running an emulator on an arm organizer running windows CE back in 2005. get a better phone or the cheapest eeepc if you want a slow as fuck mini pc. you can get a usb snes shaped controller with all the buttons on there.

Carson Martinez

Or he could get a device that's useful for more than just old games, is pocketable, has a keyboard, and doesn't need a controller

you can get bluetooth usb rechargable stand keyboards for like 10$ for android. so like, 10$ and your phone turns into this.

handheld consoles
yeah to you can get controller adaptors for your phone to do this. this is the simplest one and it costs 5 dollaridoos.

there is literally no argument you can make for that piece of shit.

Jaxson Moore
Jaxson Moore

he disagrees with me, better call him autistic
That's one quality argument you've got there.

So instead of just carrying the Pyra you're suggesting to carry a phone, a Bluetooth keyboard, and a Bluetooth gamepad? Top kek.

you're literally just looking at a 600 euro raspberry pi case.

remember all those promises of integrated devices? remember how excited you were when AMD first announced their integrated graphics and promised us that they would be releasing a single chip graphics card CPU that would be cheap and we could just throw into a computer and play games? then the best they could fart out was the E-350. I was so excited to go and buy one. then the reviews came in. it was slower than a celeron and ig on even the most low end motherboards? I suggest you go buy a rpi, install rasbian and play around in the gui to get a feel of what it will be like to use this device.

Angel Jackson

Carson Mitchell

That's literally not what the Pyra is. Can you upgrade the rPi's CPU? Didn't think so.

Dominic Myers
Dominic Myers

So instead of just buying a cheap Bluetooth keyboard, and a Bluetooth gamepad and a production phone, you suggest buying an alpha release piece of shit with no dev support, parts that will cost a thousand dollars and people will think you're making phone calls on your 80s graphics calculator? Top kek.

square triangle X and a circle. those devices are sony trademarks together. they enforce their copyright which is why generic controllers always have weird things on them that vaguely resemble them.

hmm, pay 100$ for something with a SoC or pay a thousand for something that has been promised to be upgradable yet wont need upgrading for about two years, by which time this shitty small dev company will have evaporated not to mention ARM chips are vastly different between them, making software incredibly difficult to develop across the platform and which, best case scenario, will have a few thousand user base with no other use than the DS nostalgia.

does a few second delay on text appearing on the screen bother you? honestly try an RPI this happens. only now imagine no dev community writing dedicated OS distros for this device.

you're still not going to beat it on any front. even for a brand new boxed controller and the gameklip it's not going to beat a regular phone. there are smaller devices for fitting in your pocket that do this and larger ones depending on how much you want your hands to cramp up.

just go ahead and image search for "phone controller"

Brayden Collins
Brayden Collins

does a few second delay on text appearing on the screen bother you?
Enormously, which is why I disable X11 forwarding when I SSH in because otherwise my editors try and run in an X window and it's lagged to hell.
Running it inside the terminal works without issue though

phone controller
why would i want a controller to write code?
