This brand-new laptop has a frame of 14.95 mm (0.59 inches) made of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum. Then it is packed with the latest generation Intel Core processors and graphics from Intel Xe and NVIDIA GeForce MX350 optional, weighing under 1 kg (2.2 lbs).

This strength offered makes it possible to run multiple applications at once. The notebook also has 1 TB of PCle SSD internal storage, plus LPDDRAX memory up to 16 GB.

“Office users or frequent conference calls will be very spoiled by controlling the sound produced by the device by choosing three cooling modes, namely silent, normal or performance,” Lin added.
