We recently posted the full specs of the GPD Win 2, the successor to the well-received GPD Win mini gaming laptop,  and now the device has finally become available for pre-order on Indiegogo.

The first 1000 buyers managed to snag the mini-PC for $599, but that perk already appears to be sold out, with the cheapest next level being $649 (still 27% off the final retail price apparently).

The specs include:

SOC Intel: M3-7Y30
RAM: 8GB LPDDR3 @ 1866MHz
Storage: 128GB M.2 2242 SSD card SATA 3.0. Card is user replaceable
Screen: 6″ Sharp 1280x720p capactive touch screen with Gorilla Glass 4
OS: Windows 10 home 64 bit
WiFi: 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n 2.4G/5G
WiDi: Yes
Blutooth: 4.2
Speakers: Stereo
Microphone: Yes
Ports: USB Type A 3.0, USB Type C 3.0, Micro HDMI, 3.5mm headphone jack, Micro SD
Battery: 2 x 4900mAh batteries at 3.8v . Total of 9800mAh – 37.24Wh
Rumble: Features two vibration motors
Design: Designed by a team that won the Red Dot Award
Weight: 460g, Width: 162mm, Depth: 99mm, Thickness: 25mm
Construction Material: ABS body , Metal frame lid with swappable cover
Charging: PD 2.0, capable of charging the WIN 2 from zero to 50% in 30 minutes
Cooling: Heatsink + Auto controlled fan (able to pump out hot air at 8 times the rate of the current WIN)

The device is currently set for delivery in May 2018, and given that this is not GPD’s first try they are likely to hit somewhere close to that goal.

The GPD Win range is intended mainly for emulated games, but the new Core M3-7Y30 processor should mean even better performance for much more ambitious games. A new fan which is 8 times better at moving heat and which is completely software controlled should also help, as would the new dual 2 x 4900mAh batteries should mean the device can keep up with the increased demands, promising 6 hours of battery life.

GPD posted some videos of the device running desktop games such as GTA 5, one of which can be seen below.
