Intel is expanding its next line of Computing Systems (NUC) systems with the latest benchmark design for laptops. Its partners will be able to sell the NUC M15 with their own brand and configuration specifications.
This laptop kit can provide another way to compete with major and well-known brands, such as Dell and HP.
Although prices are dependent on Intel partners, Intel told The Verge that the M15 will sell for between $ 1,000 and $ 1,500, according to specifications.
It should be available early next year. The M15 laptop features an 11th-generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1165G7 processor with an integrated Iris Xe graphics card and a standard 15.6-inch IPS or 1080p resolution touch screen.
You can choose 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM, but you will not be able to update the amount of RAM later. Intel says the battery should provide 16 hours of use on a single charge.
The M15 has two Thunderbolt 4 / USB 4 C ports (both of which can be used for charging), two 10 Gbps USB-A ports, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
There is no SD card reader. The M15 laptop with a design created by Intel and weighs in at $ 100-1500 weighs 1.65 pounds and is 1.5 inches thick. The system also includes specifications such as the LED light bar that turns on when using Windows Alexa – the M15 has four microphones capable of detecting voice.
The laptop camera is compatible with Windows Hello and can use facial recognition for authentication. The NUC range is best known for mini desktop computers.
However, the M15 is not the first portable design that Intel has manufactured under the auspices of the NUC and delivered to unsecured brands. In 2019 it launched the MAG-15 portable game.
