It seems that almost all PC manufacturers have a laptop slash tablet hybrids on their line up, which is probably the coolest trend for laptops these days. And just very recently, Panasonic introduced the Let’s Note CF-MX3, running on the latest 64-bit Windows 8.1. More details after the break!
Announced just last week, the Panasonic CF-MX3 turns into a tablet when rotated to 360 degrees, similar to Lenovo’s Yoga line. This Laptop/Tablet convertible features a 12.5 inch ( 1920 x 1080 pixels ) IPS LCD full HD display and a 1.6GHz (up to 2.60GHz with TurboBoost) 4th generation Intel Core i5-4200U processor with a non-expandable 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of SSD, a removable battery that promises up to 15 hours of use in a single charge, an optical DVD drive, Stylus support and comes with a 64-bit Windows 8.1. There’s also a built-in webcam, WiMax support, Bluetooth 4.0, 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and SDXC reader.
Alternatively, the CF-MX3 comes with another variant, this time sporting a faster 1.8GHz (up to 3.0GHz with TrueBoost) 4th gen Intel Core i7-4500U processor with a non-expandable 8 GB of RAM, a bigger 256 GB of SSD and comes with Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit.
Weighing at just 1.198 kg, the CF-MX3 line is the World’s lightest laptop with 12.5 inch screen or bigger, as Panasonic claims. And, it’s also rugged, passing a 76cm drop and 100kgf pressurized vibration test. The Panasonic CF-MX3 will be available in Japan starting on Valentine’s day, at a yet to be announced price tag. [via]
