This is the same problem as tablets. If you can carry around a bag large enough for a tablet, what's stopping you from carrying a laptop? At least a tablet can be awkwardly held above your head while you're in bed so you can text your faggot friends and watch your faggot Jew propaganda.

>What can these new $500+ GPD designs do that those old relics can't?
Play sightly newer games like up to Skyrim and Portal 2 and emulate newer systems like GameCube and Wii?

Does not justify the ridiculous price tag though, even more when they themselves sell a handheld gaming device with the same specs for half the price

>> No.59726296

you can't run morrowind on an old atom, it even struggles on a modern atom

maybe at 800x600 on the lowest settings in 16bit colour you could probably have playable framerates

and don't bullshit me, I owned an old netbook and they are god awful for anything that isn't 2d. I can't believe people even liked those pieces of shit

Dunno about Morrowind, but as I said, I played quite of few of those games, Quake 3, UT, Deus Ex, Warcraft 3, GTA SA and also things like Stronghold Crusader and Most Wanted and it ran them fine.
Screen resolution was the biggest problem, only 1024x576 but it had a N series Atom with a GMA 950 GPU in it.

Also had one with a GMA 3150 GPU, I was slightly better even but it sucked because it didn't have Mac OS support, one thing that was cool to do with those netbooks.
I had both of them around 2010/2011

>> No.59726686


Depends what you call playable. I had the original eeePC 701 and it played Morrowind at around 20-25FPS, I had a newer Atom eeePC 1005HA and that played it at around the same frame rates at slightly higher resolution.

Viewing distance was set at around 20%. Couldn't see very far at all.

Meanwhile you're trying to pass off your personal preference as a fact.

Considering functionality the trackpad is superior when size is not a restriction.
That's not my personal preference either.

>> No.59727992

Depends on if you use that functionality or not. All a trackpad is really good for is cursor control and scrolling. My TrackPoint works even better for cursor control and I never used trackpads for scrolling anyway. It's a simple matter of personal preference.

I'm not, both are shitty input methods, I rely simply on the fact that a trackpad has more functionality to give in the first place.
You are the one who loves trackpoints and say it's a fact that they are equal.

But I agree with you, if you don't need the functionality, it's just preference.

I wanted one for a while. After looking at the videos, however, I want one that isn't designed by chinks and isn't chinkshit:

>touting it for programming but the positioning of the semicolon, curly braces, and brackets is balls to the wall unusable
>tab key position
>independent sound keys despite the cramped keyboard real estate

Who the fuck cares? I have a Toshiba NB505 and over the years I've used it on and off it has played Quake 1-3, Command and Conquer, Stronghold, Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, Star Wars Empire at War, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, Deus Ex, The Legend of Heroes Trails in the Sky, Ys 1 and 2, Unreal, UT99, Homeworld: what does this little chinkwafer for $600? I don't even want to think about video playback outside of developer-controlled circumstances.

Nothing it does actually makes it a good "boots-on-the-ground" programming station or a handy "be anywhere" lounge device. Vaio P resurgence or bust.

>> No.59728380

I agree. Failed and wasted opportunity.

>I don't even want to think about video playback outside of developer-controlled circumstances.
I don't think it would have any problems with video playback though as the SoC has hardware acceleration for almost anything.
Just saying.

Why the fuck would you want to play games on some shitty low powered piece of shit? Get a fucking vita, 3ds or even shitty switch if you want to play games on the go. Or just buy a bluetooth controller for your phone if you're one of those "muh emulaton" retards.

It's not actually low powered, just low battery'd and low pointfulness. Also it's x86 so it doesn't have to emulate shit.
