News hardware CES 2021: Lenovo and Nec introduce the LaVie Mini, a hybrid laptop concept
CES is the show for all prototypes: Lenovo and Nec prove this with the presentation of the LaVie Mini, a laptop that has the side of the game console in view.
The LaVie brand may not mean anything to you as it operates primarily in Asia. It is the result of a collaboration between the manufacturers Lenovo and Nec. And on the occasion of the CES, the two companies are presenting an interesting concept: dubbed LaVie Mini, halfway between the multimedia touchscreen, the laptop and the game console.
Equipped withan 8-inch full HD touchscreenThis device has a keyboard that can be rotated backwards to turn the whole thing into a touchpad of sorts that can even be installed in a docking station an interactive device near Google Nest screens, for example. In this position it would be possible to watch videos, make video calls and much more. The third transformation probably interests us most: It is a portable game console mode in which the device is equipped with controllers on both sides, such as: B. the Joy-con, which is connected to the Nintendo Switch.
A theoretically ambitious configuration
Given the hypothetical aspect of the LaVie Mini, the configuration is only theoretical, however Lenovo and Nec would see high-end components, within the confines of an 8 inch device and weighing less than 600 grams
Especially sinceIt is easy to assemble the LaVie Mini with other machines like the Alienware UFO, which was presented at CES last year, or the Razer Edge tablet and its side controls, which in turn caught the attention of CES 2013. The notable difference is in the LaVie Mini is all about versatility, and maybe this could make all the difference in the future.
