    Is the battery situation with the win2 going to be as bad as with the win1? I am really worried to by an expensive device where a replacement battery is not obtainable :(

    Replacement batteries have been avaialble for a while now via a reseller . He is also a user here, his username is MJPIA.


    Plus I understand GPD themselves have now found a transport company who will ship them.

    These are really good news!

    I hope that the batteries are going to be available via dragonbox!

    How many batteries do you have and how much are you selling them for?

    The second Ctrl, right alt if you are willing to move it to right Ctrl) looks like the best space-key on this.
    The spacebar is nice for push-to-talk maybe. How floppy is it?

    Gotta say its pretty impressive how GPD layered several boards in the top half dedicating and separating the battery in the bottom half.

    I'm kinda wondering if the case itself is futureproofed, I.E. when it comes time for a Win3 with a different cpu in a different socket they reuse the controller pcb and the case and only have to make a new cpu board.

    My GPD WIN 2 connected to my 3M pocket projector. Everything powered by internal batteries. Playing the movie Saturn 3

    Goddamnit why the hell do they always get it first? Well, hopefully whatever issues are going in the JD units won't be in the IGG ones.

    Maybe because it is easear for GPD this way to deal whit the early bugs, as they are also in China..
    mybe not around the corner of the customers, but it should be easer to send it back from China to China..

    I just imagined that these GPD Win 2 Units on the Mass Production Line are Pyrae ..

    Damnit, my first thought was; how many of these things did you order?

    That was my thought too Levi. HAHA.

    Looking forward to trying this beast out.

    On another note, my GDP Pocket has been giving me battery fits. It does not seem to be holding a charge. Anyone had any experience changing out the battery on one of these?
