NEC Personal Computers Ltd. (NECPC), a joint venture company of Lenovo and NEC Corporation, today announced the launch of the upgraded "LAVIE Pro Mobile" at All-Digital CES 2021.
Having garnered recognition for its light weight and durability at last year's CES, the new LAVIE Pro Mobile returns with even more tempting features for on-the-go professionals, including a long-lasting battery life and more comfortable typing experience to boost productivity.
This PC comes outfitted with an 11th Gen Intel® Core i7 CPU and a keyboard design exclusively available to customers outside of Japan, while retaining the same compact 13.3-inch-wide screen and 889 grams (1.95lbs) weight. An optimized lift-up hinge function also tilts the keyboard to fit personal preference for the typing experience with 19mm key pitch.
At the event, NECPC also presented a sneak preview of the "LAVIE MINI", an 8-inch convertible PC prototype built for fun and premium entertainment with cool gaming accessories.
The LAVIE MINI pocket-sized PC is one of the smallest form-factors featuring the power and performance of the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 mobile processor with Intel Iris® Xe graphics. To personalize their experience, users can simply attach a gaming controller and a non-portable gaming console connected to an external monitor for home use. The prototype was showcased at the world's largest consumer technology event to collect customer feedback and assess plans to launch in the future.
Main highlights of the above-mentioned products include:
