Internet connection solid even after put to sleep & revived. After about an hour, I received unexpected message
"Battery level low"! Also noticed taskbar battery level showed power dropping & not plugged in - even though it was plugged in. Unplugged adapter then plugged back in & now taskbar battery showed plugged in & battery level was climbing. Went back to familiarizing myself with this fine computer when again "Battery level low"! Taskbar battery indicator showed I was not plugged in - but in fact it was. I sent LANRUO, computer company, an email detailing my battery problems & there response was "let the battery run down near 0 then turn it off & charge it to 100%. I can understand them not wanting to ship it back & forth to analyze what is probably just a bad adapter and/or adapter cable. Recommended them sending me a new adapter & cable but they refused saying "Go buy one yourself".
Only other criticism is the cheap camera & position (in the hinge) in an otherwise premium computer. Computer has ingenious cooling pipe & fan to keep it running cool to warm - never hot!!!
Love the computer - Core m3 is perfect CPU; 2560X1600 perfect for watching Blu-ray movies; 16GB ram is ideal; the 512GB SSD is fast & spacious;responsive multi-touch trackpad; 3 USB ports & micro HDMI. Payed extra $100 to buy thru trouble-free Amazon rather than direct from China. 5 Stars for the computer, 3 Stars for customer support.
For me, the biggest hassle is laptops through security. I refuse to put personal stuff on my company machine, so I need to carry something else for my personal use. Two full size laptops means two security bins. Plus the bin for my carry-on and it gets to be a hassle in the security line.
I found that my 9" tablet fits with my laptop and camera in a single bin nicely. Even in Paris, Denver, or Mumbai, I could get through security easily with all my electronics in a single bin with those items. Except I can't edit photos as I'd like on my tablet. I need a real PC.
I built a cardboard mockup of a security bin and tried a bunch of configurations to get two laptops to fit. Even a fairly small 13" model was just too large. I even tried to overlap the 13" with my work PC and the very first TSA checkpoint nixed that idea. I've cut cardboard models for a bunch of different machines and I simply could not find a size that worked with the more mainstream offerings. Thus, I needed to look more to niche offerings.
So, I made my requirements as follows:
1) MUST run Phase One's Capture One software without excessive pauses.
2) MUST be roughly the size of my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 at 8"x5.5"
3) Should have a decent battery or ability to run on USB.
4) Had to have a decent screen resolution to have a large enough edit area for photos.
4) Has to not suck to use.
Far too many machines I looked at were either too large, had terrible performance, or like the GPD Pocket 2, were just too many compromises.
Long story short, I looked at a host of different machines, many from Asian companies I'd never heard of. I'd heard of GPD from a couple friends who bought their gaming rigs. Initially I'd dismissed them as their products were simply too small.
And then I saw an early review of a prototype of the P2Max. it looked very promising. Ultimately, I ordered the machine with the expectation I would have to wipe it and return it. I simply could not believe it was a truly usable laptop.
You know what? It's not bad at all. I am quite pleasantly surprised just how good it is. Yes, it is slightly larger than my tablet, but it's still small enough to fit in a security bin with a tiny bit of room to spare.
It runs Capture One without any problems at all. Every function works fine. When I do a white balance update, there is a slight pause as it completes the 20 megapixel image and then renders the result. By slight, you notice it, but nothing serious. My i7 based machine is practically instant in this operation, but earlier machines all used to have delays. Compared to those, this machine is top notch. When I render jpgs from RAW files in a batch process, it is noticable slower than the i7 machine as you would expect, but not as slow as I might have expected. In fact, processing the same 21 images, the i7 finished about 4 images ahead of the GPD P2 Max. That's not bad. I recall that when I first started using the i7 machine I noticed a significant improvement over the previous i5 based machine. So, I pulled the old 2010 i5 machine out and ran a test.
To be fair, I made sure the software and OS on the older machine were up to date. I then ran the same 21 images and the P2Max finished about 2.5-3 images FASTER than the older i5. And that i5 was considered a fairly powerful machine back then.
The boot time on the P2 Max is very quick. Battery life is more than usable. Doing photo editing and conversion I was seeing about 5 hours. When I hooked up an Anker battery, the machine continued to charge while running until I ran a batch process that really taxed the system. In other words, I can easily use a simple USB battery to extend my work time significantly. Using a full power USB C power source easily charges and run the machine. An 8% to full charge while turned off took about 3 hours on the included charger.
The fingerprint login is a real joy to use. I rarely get an error. If I need to step away from the machine for a few moments I can just close the lid to sleep and when I get back, I can open it, touch the fingerprint reader and be right back where I was in seconds. Battery draw when sleeping is not bad. If you are not going away for more than an hour, it isn't worth shutting down completely.
Using the machine is fairly simple. Typing is no worse than many laptops and with the exception of some of the punctuation I don't feel cramped. the trackpad is small but very usable.
As a first test, I went out and took photos of an indoor soccer game that my son was playing. This location is terrible for photos as you have various light from sunlight in the narrow windows to poor florescent bulbs. Typically it takes a lot of post processing to pull out details and fix the color differences. I had no issues at all doing this work on the GPD P2 Max. At no time did I feel I was waiting for the machine to catch up with me. the trackpad offered enough control to target specific areas for work and to crop shots. In the end, I also used the machine to run a software package called IrfanView to generate web sized images and automatically build a series of webpages to display them. I even emailed the web link to the parents from the tiny laptop. Other than hitting the return key when I was trying to type an apostrophe, I really can't say I had any issues at all.
I did load up Microsoft Word and Excel and found no issues editing files in those packages.
All in all, this is a very usable machine.
I have a couple issues which should be considered minor:
1) Power button requires a firm push to turn on. Since there is no instant indicator that lets you know it is stating, I found myself several times staring at a dark screen. Not sure if this is normal or just my unit. Either way, if I give it a solid press, no problems.
2) Right click on the touchpad is not reliable. When I was resizing the icons on the start screen I kept launching the applications. For the most part this isn't an issue, but can be annoying at times.
3) The lid is tight. Really need two hands to open. I understand why, but it should be considered.
4) Windows authentication key did not register automatically. Both the company and vendor were quick to respond and provide the proper steps to manually get the registration complete, but it could have been a three line entry in a trouble shooting section of the manual.
The display is awesome. The colors are very close to being perfect sRGB. Enough so that I don't worry about doing color corrections on the little laptop. The touch response is as good as any I've tried. The only real issue is that the screen elements are so small that it is easy to tap the wrong one. I caused a couple windows to go full screen when I wanted to close them. But for scrolling and more gross actions, it works just fine. My only caveat is that if you are over 40, chances are you are going to need your reading glasses. All that resolution packed into such a small screen does not make for easy reading in older eyes. That said, with glasses, or when viewed by my teen son, the screen is bright, crisp, and very very good. You can see in my attached photo, the side angle of the display is even better than that of my primary laptop.
Build quality is top notch. No flex in the keyboard, solid feel, and even the ports are solid. Nothing feels cheap or 'budget'. Yes, you are paying a lot for such a small machine, but it really feels worth the money. I do not find the fan a problem at all. Yes, you can hear it at time, but I never find any annoying noise.
If you have bad vision, large gorilla hands, need precise control of the cursor, or some other issue with the physical size, this might not be the machine for you. But, if you have the need for a small and ultra-portable windows machine that can run real productive software, this is a very competitive choice.
The Max 2 is absurdly small. About the size of an iPad Mini. In fact, it feels like an Apple product. The unibody constructions is very solid, and the keyboard is familiar to any MacBook user. The screen is bright, sharp, with excellent viewing angle. The trackpad is usable, and I find myself switching between it and the touch screen about equally.
I'm 45 so I don't have the best eyesight, but the default screen scaling of 200% works fine for me. I've opened several browser tabs, managed emails, and done some command prompt work. Occasionally I tap on something and miss it (this is where the trackpad's precision comes in handy). Occasionally I have to hunt for a key - and I dearly wish the keyboard was backlit. Selecting text for cut and paste can be pretty fiddly. But all told, the machine is surprisingly useful for note taking, web browsing, and lite productivity work. With an external keyboard / mouse / monitor, it could be your only machine.
Battery life seems OK so far. 4 - 5 hours of web browsing, dropping to 2 - 3 hours if the CPU is totally maxed. This is acceptable to me, since I can easily charge the device from a USB power bank.
I'm really glad I bought the more powerful version. Chrome is memory hungry and 8GB just won't do it. Paying a little more for double the RAM, double the SSD, and significantly better CPU is a no-brainer. Also the gun metal finish is smart looking.
I bought this computer for ultra-light travel where weight / size are at a premium (backpacking), so it filled a niche that a 13" laptop couldn't. But it will also replace my iPad whenever I travel, and will be fantastic for conferences and meetings. For the price, I think it is a lot of machine.
My only negatives:
. No backlit keyboard
. No status LEDs. When you touch the power button / finger print sensor, there is no indication that it worked until the screen lights up. This is a few seconds if waking from power-off. But wake from sleep is very fast.
. The fan runs pretty much constantly. It's soft and I don't hear it in a normal environment, but this is not ideal for web surfing in bed while your partner sleeps. iPad still wins there.
. The keyboard is a compromise.
I would have ordered a replacement but this is the 2nd GPD mini laptop that I've had issues with in the past year. My GPD Pocket 2 will not charge and I am trying to deal with that issue as well. I just don't have a lot of confidence in the reliability of GPD products, particularly since you have to deal with support via email.
Puntos negativos: la batería dura muchísimo menos de lo esperado. En el modo económico dura como dos horas. Calienta mucho pero mucho. Cuando está cargando da para freír un huevo. ATENCIÓN PARA HISPANOHABLANTES: el teclado NO ES COMPLETO. Viene con menos teclas. Las teclas de la letra “ñ” y el acento “ ‘ “ no existen. Tuve que instalar un software para mapear la asignación de las teclas y así a alterar para que otras cumplan esas funciones. En resumen: buena portabilidad, desempeño pero baja batería, muy caliente y teclado mutilado. Por casi 900 dólares yo no volvería a comprar
works way better than expected
I even just for the heck of it put my Favorite call of duty: modern warfare 2 on it
blew my mind that it was playable hehe low settings of course but plays just fine
the hard drives most likely will drain the battery in a hurry tho
that's all right as it uses a cell phone type charger so I think my battery pack will work just fine with it, I hope haven't tried it yet
