The EM-B13KG mini PC and EM-NM14KG 14-inch gaming laptop from Emdoor will most likely come with very affordable prices. Both can be equipped with the i5 and i7 Kaby Lake-G CPUs that integrate AMD's Radeon RX Vega M GPUs, up to 8 GB DDR4 RAM, SSD storage (+HDD for the mini PC), and the list of connectors is quite generous.

Among the Chinese IT&C device manufacturers that are not really known to the Western world is Emdoor, which started out as a tablet builder in 2008, and slowly expanded into the laptop, mini PC and handset market afterwards. This week, at the Hong Kong Sourcing Fair, Emdoor presented its first Kaby Lake-G-powered devices in the form of an EM-B13KG mini PC and an EM-NM14KG 14-inch gaming laptop. Notebook Italia was there and took a closer look at the models.The two systems support chips with max 65 w TDP, so they can be equipped with Core i5 and i7 Kaby Lake-G CPUs that come with integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega M GPUs.

First up is the EM-B13KG mini PC that measures 10.3″ x 6.8″ x 0.5″ and weighs around 3.3 lbs. No word on RAM here, but the storage solution can include a PCIe NVMe SSD + 2.5-inch SSD/laptop HDD combo. The connectivity side is very generous: 7x USB ports, GbE jack + Wi-Fi, 2x HDMI ports, 2x DisplayPort connectors, and mic+headphone jacks.

The laptop gets an FHD display and features up to 8 GB of RAM, plus up to 256 GB SSD storage. The connectivity side is not that impressive in this case: 3x USB-A 3.0, 1x USB-C 3.1, audio jack, microSD card reader, and an HDMI port. Other options include a power button that integrates a fingerprint sensor, an FHD webcam and a 47 Wh battery.

These 2 devices might be released soon under different brands since Emdoor operates as an OEM/ODM that licenses its products to other integrators. No word on pricing for the time being.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
