This is a significantly improved device over the first one. The keyboard feels better, the system is more stable, and the display kicks ass.

The only thing I had an issue with was it seems dangerous to leave it running sitting on something that'll not allow it to ventilate heat correctly, which will cause a thermal shutdown.

Is the new one stronger than/about as strong as the Switch?

What surfaces are we talking about? Beds? Couches? Thinking about getting one of these as most games seem to run well or even better than the switch and custom resolutions (540 vs 720 i think) along with shadow tweaking/removal let’s games like sfv and Tekken 7 run at 60fps.

I like the design of the system and if all goes well they may make a third and I can use that for my portable pc gaming experience vs my laptop.
Something goes here...someday I'll remember what it was.

I caused it to thermally shut down by sitting it on a leather ottoman (just running the Windows 10 1803 update, no less).

I'd say it's on par with the Switch but I don't intend to run anything beefy on it. Some people are content pushing it as hard as possible but my goals are modest gaming and otherwise the UMPC of my dreams.

And it should have a Vega iGPU and support Thunderbolt 3.

The only thing that has it so far costs an arm and leg to buy and it's been 5 months. That doesn't bode well in the future for support in different products.

I personally would like something with it in the form factor of a Surface Pro and actually has decent I/O. My surface pro 2 basically has no I/O, 1 USB, 1 mini DP out.

UMPCs have always been pricey. People pay a lot for super-small form factors.

It would melt the system and give you a battery life of like 5 minutes. But man that would be godly.

I thought AMD had gotten pretty good at power consumption lately.

We are talking about a handheld here, I imagine it works well for laptops, but doubt it will work for the GPD. I blame the ancient battery tech.
