The long-term fruitful relationship with Apple may soon disappear, but Intel’s influence in the PC market is still great. However, there has never been a good time to be complacent (the company learned from the difficult experience of mobile).
This week, the chip giant will launch its own notebook NUC M15. More appropriately, the NUC M15 notebook computer kit; the device is actually a white label system.
It is essentially a reference design, so smaller equipment manufacturers do not have to undertake the lengthy and expensive process of building a system from scratch.
As The Verge pointed out, this is not the first time the company has created such a reference design. It recently created a game system with a similar purpose.
However, like recent MacBooks, this system is designed to provide high performance in a package that provides higher performance.
The system is available in two configurations, featuring a Core i7 chip with 16GB RAM or a Core i5 with 8GB RAM. Obviously, this will be supplemented by Windows 10, which will utilize a 15.6-inch touch screen.
Pricing and timing and all these goodies may depend on which vendor brings the system to the end.
