Intel has a long history of making concept hardware and inviting suppliers to build it: that̵
The NUC M15 is a mid-range 15-inch laptop packed with 11th Gen Core i5 or i7 processors and Intel’s well-received Xe integrated graphics card. Vendors can use 8 GB or 16 GB of soldered RAM, plus a wide variety of standard M.2 SSDs for storage. The screen is 1080p, with touchscreen or without (again, it’s up to the seller), with a claimed battery life of 16 hours.
The laptop looks a bit low-profile, which is kind of the point, but it uses the minimalist body design that has become so popular over the past decade. It includes two USB-C and two USB-A ports, HDMI and a headphone jack – quite a decent spread, with charging on both sides – and Windows Hello IR sensors on the webcam. It also has Amazon Alexa built in, with a unique illuminated LED bar to indicate when it’s active.
It’s not clear when and where to buy one, but Intel is tailoring the design specifically for smaller companies, so don’t expect to see a version from Acer or Lenovo. Adjustments to the M15 design will determine the final price, but Intel expects them to sell for between $ 1,000 and $ 1,500 when finished.
