    NEC Japan rolled out the world's thinnest Ultrabook, the 15.6-inch LaVie X (model: LX850/JS). It is just 12.8 mm thick (375 x 255 x 12.8 mm), weighing 1.59 kg. NEC achieved its thickness thanks to innovations in cooling that spreads cooling components apart. It features an LED backlit IPS LCD screen featuring 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 4 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD storage, and Windows 8. Connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, Bluetooth 4.0 +HS, HDMI display-output, SDHC/SDXC card slot, and a 2-megapixel web-camera. It is slated for market availability on December 27.

    Quite the funky looking unit, shame it ships with win8 but surely one could bang 7 on it anyways quite possibly? Doesn't imply it's a touchscreen either i couldn't help but notice, another plus!!!

    Damn you Santa, so many tempting options now!!!


    I would certainly have my way with it for the luxury of portable and menial computing tasks.

    On face value, it radiates charm and ticks all the right boxes per se.

    that's crazy thin. it'd be interesting to see one taken apart and the cooling apparatus examined.

    For the "World's Thinnest 15.6" Ultrabook", the specs are actually nice

    RAM is quite lacking. Everything else is great.
