Replacing a tablet with ultra-portable laptop

Hi, guys,

I would like to hear your opinion about the GPD Pocket2 7 inch laptop.

Will it run Linux well?

Is it worth the money?

Would Lenovo ThinkPad 11e be a better option?

GPD Pocket 2 might be a good replacement for a 7 inch tablet while ThinkPad 11e could be a replacement for a 10 inch tablet.

I'd wait for specific reports of hardware working with Linux before picking up something like this.

I have a lenovo yoga I run Bodhi on that is a bit larger, but is a flipable device like this that I like a lot.

I find an 11.6" netbook to be a perfect fit for me, small enough to carry, big enough to work on, decent screen resolution.

Probably, Yoga 720 (12") is a better choice than GPD pocket since it does not need to have the OS re-spun.
