ONEXPLAYER 8.4 inch handheld gaming PC now available with Ryzen 7 5800U (but it will cost you)

The ONEXPLAYER line of handheld gaming computers continues to expand. One Netbook is now taking orders for a model with an 8.4 inch display and an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U processor.

But with a $1,449 starting price, it’s the most expensive member of the ONEXPLAYER lineup to date.

That price tag will get you a handheld computer with an 8.4 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support, built-in game controllers, dual vibration motors, and AMD’s processor with 8 Zen 3 CPU cores, 16 threads, and Radeon Vega 8 graphics.

But the new model is just one of five versions of the ONEXPLAYER currently available:

  • 8.4 inch display + Ryzen 7 5800U for $1,449
  • 8.4 inch display + Core i7-1195G7 for $1,419
  • 8.4 inch display + Ryzen 7 4800U for $1,099
  • 7 inch display + Ryzen 7 5800U for $1,259
  • 7 inch display + Core i7-1195G7 for $1,259

While I was impressed by the design, build quality and performance of the original ONEXPLAYER that I reviewed a year ago, the price was a little easier to swallow at the time, with entry-level configurations selling for as little as $819 during crowdfunding.

Plus, the Steam Deck wasn’t a thing when the ONEXPLAYER first launched. Now it is, and with prices ranging from $399 to $649, you could easily buy 2-3 Steam Decks for the price of a single ONEXPLAYER. Doing so may get you less storage and a device with a Linux-based operating system rather than Windows, but the Steam Deck’s RDNA 2 GPU should deliver more graphics performance than even the highest-performance ONEXPLAYER models.

That said, at the rate at which One Netbook is cranking out new variations of its handhelds, it may not be long before you can find a version with a Ryzen 6000 series chip featuring RDNA 2 graphics. Whether it will be competitively priced though, remains to be seen.
