Panasonic outs a new AX Series hybrid Ultrabook in Japan
Panasonic has reportedly unveiled a new foldable Ultrabook as part of the 2012 CEATEC (Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies) trade show. The lightweight device, called CF-AX, is equipped with a Windows 8 operating system and will become commercially available in Japan on October 26th for a yet undisclosed price.
The latest addition to the company’s AX Series is apparently powered by a choice between an Intel Core i7 central processing unit clocked at 1.9GHz and an Intel Core i5 CPU operating at a frequency of 1.7GHz. Moreover, it sports an 11.6-inch foldable (the laptop can be used as a tablet) touchscreen display that has a native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels.
Users are further provided with 4GB of internal RAM, a 128GB Solid-State Drive and a removable battery. Other features of Panasonic’s new Ultrabook include two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI interface for hooking up the CF-AX to an external HDTV/HD monitor, VGA out and an integrated SD card reader slot.
