One Mix 2 Yoga mini Laptop powered by a Kaby Lake Core-m3 processor may have launched just about 10 days ago, but the company is now already taking pre-orders for One Mix 2S Yoga mini portable computer with a faster Intel Core M3-8100Y Amber Lake Y-Series processor. Otherwise, the new model has very much the same look and feel as the earlier models.
One Mix 2S Yoga specifications:
- SoC – Intel Core M3-8100Y dual core / quad thread Amber Lake-Y processor @ 1.1 GHz (base) / 3.4 GHz (Turbo) with 4MB cache, 24EU Intel HD graphics 615 @ 300 MHz / 900 MHz (Turbo); 5W TDP
- System Memory – 8GB DDR3 RAM
- Storage – 256GB PCIe SSD, micro SD slot up to 128 GB
- Display – 7″ 1920×1200 IPS panel with touchscreen, 360° hinge
- Video Output – micro HDMI
- Audio – Built-in speakers and microphone, 3.5mm headphone & mic jack
- Connectivity – Dual band 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n WiFi (WiFi 5), Bluetooth
- USB – 1x USB 3.0 port, 1x USB type-C port
- User input – QWERTY keyboard, built-in infrared induction mouse
- Sensor – Fingerprint scanner
- Battery – 6,500mAh LiPo battery
- Power Supply – USB PD via USB type-C port
- Dimensions – 182 x 110 x 17 mm

Beside the processor nothing has changed, although the laptop is 3 grans heavier than Mix 2 Yoga model… When the company talks about “Pocket” laptop, they really mean “jacket’s pocket laptop”, and not “trousers’ pocket laptop”, as the dimensions are a bit too big for the latter… 🙂

Does those core-m come with the (in)famous “Intel Management Engine” ? https://libreboot.org/faq.html#intel
I think it can be disabled by the manufacturer. Purism does that one their laptop if I remember correctly.. I doubt the company behind “One Mix” will do it though.
I don’t believe that. IIRC w/o running ME, main processor would block.

Might help explain for some
” The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and security expert Damien Zammit accuse the ME of being a backdoor and a privacy concern. Zammit states that the ME has full access to memory (without the parent CPU having any knowledge); has full access to the TCP/IP stack and can send and receive network packets independent of the operating system, thus bypassing its firewall. Intel asserts that it “does not put back doors in its products” and that its products do not “give Intel control or access to computing systems without the explicit permission of the end user.”
Several weaknesses have been found in the ME. On May 1, 2017, Intel confirmed a Remote Elevation of Privilege bug (SA-00075) in its Management Technology. Every Intel platform with provisioned Intel Standard Manageability, Active Management Technology, or Small Business Technology, from Nehalem in 2008 to Kaby Lake in 2017 has a remotely exploitable security hole in the ME. Several ways to disable the ME without authorization that could allow ME’s functions to be sabotaged have been found. Additional major security flaws in the ME affecting a very large number of computers incorporating ME, Trusted Execution Engine (TXE), and Server Platform Services (SPS) firmware, from Skylake in 2015 to Coffee Lake in 2017, were confirmed by Intel on 20 November 2017 (SA-00086). Unlike SA-00075, this bug is even present if AMT is absent, not provisioned or if the ME was “disabled” by any of the known unofficial methods. In July 2018 another set of vulnerabilitites were disclosed (SA-00112). In September 2018, yet another vulnerability was published (SA-00125). ”
” n the context of criticism of the Intel ME and AMD Secure Technology it has been pointed out that the NSA budget request for 2013 contained a Sigint Enabling Project with the goal to “Insert vulnerabilities into commercial encryption systems, IT systems, …” and it has been conjectured that Intel ME and AMD Secure Technology might be part of that programme.
