The GPD Win 2 is a tiny handheld PC for gaming on the go

Pocket to ’em

Playing games on a PC is great, but dragging a desktop around requires strong arms and a monster of an extension cable, and even laptops won’t fit in your pocket. The GPD Win 2 ($775) will, though. Akin to the offspring of a PS Vita and a laptop, this tiny device – 460g; 162×99×25mm – packs in a Core m3–8100Y processor, 8GB RAM, a 256GB SSD, a 6in 1280×720px display, dual analogue sticks, a D-pad, four face buttons, and six triggers. It’ll run a fair chunk of Windows AAA titles, and loads of classics, making your commutes infinitely less dull. And when you do hit the office, connect up a monitor, keyboard and mouse, and you can get on with some work. Just remember to disconnect all that stuff and not yell PEW PEW PEW! too loudly when taking a sneaky Overwatch break.

I’m a regular contributor to Stuff magazine and Stuff.tv, covering apps, games, Apple kit, Android, Lego, retro gaming and other interesting oddities. I also pen opinion pieces when the editor lets me, getting all serious about accessibility and predicting when sentient AI smart cookware will take over the world, in a terrifying mix of Bake Off and Terminator.

Areas of expertise

Mobile apps and games, Macs, iOS and tvOS devices, Android, retro games, crowdfunding, design, how to fight off an enraged smart saucepan with a massive stick.
