Add the silky-smooth 144Hz refresh rate and kill, you play at a restaurant on Route 66 or on a work trip.

Work from anywhere
This multitasker lets you grind it on a tropical island or your local park with no lag. It sounds at an exceptionally thin 19.9 millimeters and the HD camera and dual intelligent noise-canceling microphones keep your video calls looking totally professional, even if you’re wearing swim shorts on the bottom half.
Upgrade the style of your laptop
This brushed aluminum convertible is dressed to impress. The 12th Gen Intel Core processor takes care of your daily tasks and the edge-to-edge FHD touchscreen is a dream streaming machine after you disconnect. It’s also partially made from ocean-related recycled plastics, which is pretty cool.

This high-end ultraportable is great if you’re hoarding screen time. Along with the powerful Intel Core i7 processor and a Thunderbolt 4 port up to eight times faster than USB 3.0, ComfortView Plus technology reduces harmful blue light. Your peepers will seriously thank you.
