The device has 13.3 inches wide screen, and weighs 1.27 kg only, and the company claimed it to be the lightest in its segment.

Based on Intel Centrino Duo processor, the new notebook would comprise of 34mm express card slot, 7-in-1 memory card reader, 3 USB ports, in-built HDMI connection, VGA output, and an Ethernet socket; further, it also include a 128GB SSD, 1.3-megapixel camera, and has an incredible battery life of 10 hours.

The device supports 802.11n Wi-Fi technology, and integrates Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, for matchless connectivity, and its keypad is coated with anti-bacterial material, for hygiene conscious.

The pricing of the device hasn’t been declared yet.
