Nokia and OFF Global launch PureBook Pro budget laptops with Alder Lake-P CPUs
French tech company OFF Global managed to secure a licensing agreement with Nokia for the design and sale of laptops. It now holds an international exclusive license to create Nokia-branded laptops, and the first to be released will be the 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch PureBook Pro models with Intel Alder Lake-P processors, as well as affordable pricing.
The new Nokia Purebook Pro combines premium elements with enticing price points. Design-wise, the laptops are taking cues from Apple’s 14-inch MacBook Pros with rounded edges and more pronounced anti-gliding feet. There is also an aluminum cover that comes in four colors, while the profile measures 0.7 inches and the overall weight is 3.7 lbs for the 15-inch model or 5.5 lbs for the 17-inch one.
In order to maintain accessible prices, Nokia and OFF Global included an Intel Core i3-1220P processor with 10 cores and 12 threads plus a 64 EU Xe iGPU, which is coupled with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD. The display is modest as well, with a matte finish and 1080p resolution. Port selection obviously does not include any Thunderbolt connectors, yet it does offer two USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 with charge capabilities, a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, a microSD card reader and an audio jack. Wi-Fi 6 + BT5 connectivity is also available, while the battery is supposed to last up to 10 hours.
These models will start shipping soon in most of the Western and Northern Europe countries including France, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Norway, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, plus countries like Morocco, Tunisia, Canada and Thailand. No word on U.S. availability for now. The 15-inch model will be priced at €699, and the 17-inch one will only be €100 more expensive.
