NEC introduces lightest ultrabook ever
NEC has proudly introduced to this world what may be the world’s lightest ultrabook. The VersaPro UltraLite VG is NEC’s latest ultrabook offering and being the lightest ultrabook ever seen the device comes in a 14.9 mm thick chassis made of a lithium-magnesium alloy for a total weight of just 853 grams!
Inside you will find an Intel Core i7-3517U chip that runs at 1.9 GHz in normal mode and at 3.0 GHz in Turbo mode. The ultra low voltage CPU also supports Hyper Threading so your OS will see the dual-core chip as a quad-core one. For video and 3D needs the ultrabook bets on the chip-integrated Intel HD 4000 GPU.
The NEC VersaPro UltraLite VG also comes with 4 GB of DDR3 memory and a 13.3-inch LED screen that works at 1600 x 900 pixel resolution. The motherboard is based on the UM77 chipset, which offers Intel’s Rapid Start technology to the 128 GB SSD. Networking is provided by an 802.11n WiFi interface with WiDi support, as well as Bluetooth 4.0. The UltraLite VG has USB 3.0, an integrated webcam, card reader and an HDMI output.
The ultrabook runs Windows 7 Professional x64 Edition by default and will be initially available in Japan only where it will cost 2450 British pounds – a rather high price.
