Just now NEC released its thinnest Windows 8 Lavie ultrabook, the Lavie X, a 15.6" large screen notebook but only 12.8mm thick. Lavie X is currently the lightest ultrabook among those in the same size in Japan. Meanwhile, it is also the thinnest notebook among the world. This ultrabook adopts highly integrated components with only 3mm thick. But at the same time, NEC also paid attention to the importance of heat dissipation with two 5mm fans. The keyboard is also optimized to be only 1mm thick, but produces quite excellent hand control while inputting.
As to the specs and functions, the new Lavie X is much different from the previous Lavie Z. Lavie X comes with a large 15.6" IPS screen display with 1920X1080 pixels screen resolution, producing even better experience for HD movie enjoyment. Besides this, it also runs on 1.9GHz Intel Core i7-3517U quad-core processor with 4GB RAM and 256GB SSD. Other specs include: 2 USB 3.09 ports, 802.11n Wi-Fi network connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 + HS, HDMI output, card reader and 2MP front camera, Windows 8 OS.
The ultrabook would be on sale since December 27th in Japan at $2078 for the 256GB SSD version. There’s also a 128GB SSD version of Lavie X priced at $1541.
