Just like its smaller sibling, this laptop is built with an ultralight and sturdy chassis. Despite its larger screen, it still weighs a light 1.13kg, which is among the lightest you can find among ultraportable laptops.
Its one-bar hinge is sturdy and expected to survive the daily usage patterns of users. The laptop is also tested against 12 military-grade requirements and more than 200 quality checks to ensure it runs in extreme conditions.
To make sure that head is well controlled, the laptop comes with a dual-fan design. Hot air is vented out at the rear through an improved Intelligent Thermal Solution, which ensures that the machine is always running cool.
