Lenovo is dreaming of building a computer in the form of a Nintendo Switch with the Lavie Mini
At this year’s CES, Lenovo unveiled a new product called the Lavie Mini, which is actually a portable gaming computer in the form of a Nintendo Switch game console. This product is 8 inches and uses a touch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200. In terms of hardware, it is equipped with the latest generation of Intel processors, namely Core i7-1180G7, but it does not have separate internal graphics, and in this part, it must rely on the power of the integrated processor, namely Intel Iris Xe.
As mentioned, the Lenovo Lavie Mini is a portable product weighing 580 grams. This means that the user can move it without any problems. Interestingly, the keys used in this product are designed in a circular shape instead of a U-shape to create a variety in its appearance and make it look more beautiful. The keyboard also has a backlight to make it easier to write in the night light.
An important point about the attractiveness of the Lavie Mini, along with its light weight and interesting appearance, are the wireless controllers that come with it and help the user to play games by connecting to the body of the device. In fact, when you connect this controller to the Lenovo Lavie Mini, your device will look a lot like the Nintendo Switch game console. If an 8-inch screen is not enough for you, you can connect it to a larger display via a special dock and finally view the content at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. However, considering the GPU of this product, one cannot hope that the games of the day will run on it with such quality.
Since the Lavie Mini is actually a personal computer, the user can connect any Bluetooth controller he has and play games. Lenovo for this interesting product 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM along with 256 GB of PCIe internal memory, support for Intel High-Definition Audio technology, 2 USB-C ports of the 2nd generation and USB-A with 1 USB-C 3.1 port And consider the second generation HDMI port so that the lack of a separate graphics card is its only major drawback.
Unfortunately, the Lenovo Lavie Mini is still in its infancy, and what Lenovo and NEC unveiled at this year’s show is merely a concept design, not a device that can be purchased. That is why no price has been announced for it. However, this device showed that it is not impossible to achieve the dream of having a personal computer to play games anywhere.
