It’s time again for CSE 2021 and it is the first one of a kind digital event from CES. However, this time it is going to be very different as companies are going to bring in some of the most expected and new devices to the party. One of them is the new Lavie Mini device from Lenovo, which is a hybrid PC gaming console that the company was working on for a very long time. Lenovo and NEC have announced their new pocket-sized convertible PC called Lavie Mini.
It is currently a concept laptop and a portable gaming console at the same time. Since Lenovo and NEC have already displayed a lot of products before in the CES, even this device is a partnership between them. The Lavie Mini will be a touchscreen-compatible pocket PC that will come with a controller and dock accessories. A similar concept was also shown as Alienware’s UFO concept from last year. However, since then nothing has been heard about any kind of such design being developed by any other company.
For now, it is for sure that Lavie Mini will only be launching in very selective markets such as China and later it might expand its reach to other markets in the globe. It comes with a controller that can be connected to the laptop, even after you fold the keyboard back. Instead of the trackpad, the device will come with an optical touch sensor to control the pointer. The device is expected to have an 8-inch screen, which is a WUXGA touch display, and has an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 mobile processor paired with Intel Iris Xe graphics. It comes with 16G of RAM and 256GBb of storage,
