That no longer reminds you of a MacBook Air. It's all aluminum body weighs in at two point six pounds with an improved -- -- for thirteen inch screen with a slimmer Basil. So this feels smaller than some of the twelve inch laptops we've -- and it's hands down the best looking to -- -- on the market. -- this -- is known for their TV sets. But their first entry into the laptop world is a fresh take on the category the CP -- team has a thicker body with his fourteen inch screen. But it brings a modern sense of designs and a rubberized case with a sturdy -- -- first entry business held its own original design but it's still just not eye popping up in the -- for the world.
