NEC has introduced its Lavie Mini, perhaps the most compact concept PC/tablet/gaming console hybrid that you’ve ever seen. It’s 1.28 pounds of pure fun. Encased inside the Lavie Mini is an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 mobile processor with Intel Iris® Xe graphics. The tiny 8-inch touch panel display monitor offers 1920 x 1200 resolution for gaming joy. At this size and with this weight, it’s easy to see why they call this pocket-sized. Yet, it comes with 16GB of memory and 256Gb of SSD storage. Long battery life gives it 26 working hours and it’s even WiFi ready, something that a lot of gaming PCs don’t even offer.
Optional accessories include a gaming controller with familiar controls, buttons, and toggles, all in matching translucent white with attractive gold accents. You’ll even experience the immersive vibration feature that comes with most handhelds. With the gaming controller attached, the NEC’s Lavie Mini is a strong competitor of the Nintendo Switch gaming device. When you’re ready to get back to work, just pause the game and remove the controller accessory. Another optional accessory is the HDMI-connected docking station, which you can use to cast your gaming antics onto a big screen for all to enjoy. You’ll also use the dock to charge up quickly and utilize a variety of inputs, including USB-C and USB-A ports. Stay tuned for buying opportunities, since this is still in concept mode.
