The high levels of processing power and level graphics professional make it possible to perform even the most demanding tasks, with a memory capacity of up to 16 GB and large storage options that guarantee plenty of space for local data. Wi-Fi 6 maximizes bandwidth on congested networks for seamless cloud collaboration.
AI-based user presence detection enables zero-touch login for greater ease of use and multi-user flexibility, and can intelligently dim the display when the user looks away, reducing the energy consumption. The adaptive screen detects ambient light, dimming or by illuminating the display as needed.
