One Mix 2 Yoga mini laptop with a 7″ display and an Intel Core M3-7Y30 Kaby Lake processor launched almost at the same time as the One Mix 2S Yoga mini laptop with the same features except it got upgraded to a more recent Intel Core M3-8100Y Amber Lake Y-Series processor.

Beside the upgraded processor, you’d also get 512GB SSD storage instead of just 256GB SSD for the original model. One Mix 2S Yoga Platinum comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit Home, and ships with a charger, and an English user manual. An optional 2048-level stylus is also offered.
This mini laptop would cost you $1,199.99 shipped however, and this can’t really be justified by the extra CPU performance, as Intel Core i7-8500Y is basically the same as Intel Core M3-8100Y except for slightly higher base and turbo frequencies. It may make sense if you really need to extra storage, or for bragging rights. For reference, you’ll find One Mix 2S Yoga laptop with Core M3-8100Y processor and 256 GB storage for $669.99 on the same GeekBuying page.
