The Schenker Vision 14 is a new entrant into the ~14-inch, 16:10 display thin-and-light laptop market. This fresh option has magnesium alloy in its construction, as well as Tiger Lake CPUs and 3K/90Hz panels in some configurations. It can support up to 64GB of RAM, Thunderbolt 4, and has 2 slots for M.2 2280 SSDs.

Schenker has announced the Vision 14, a new foray into this brand's more portable, potentially enterprise-focused laptops. It offers fairly high-end-seeming magnesium alloy in its lid, case and backplate, although its frame is made of plastic. This makes for a weight rating of ~1kg in this new machine.

The Vision 14 has also been graced with an on-trend 16:10 IPS matte display, which comes in either 1920×1200/60Hz/330-nit/95% sRGB or 2880x1800/90Hz/380-nit/99% sRGB flavors. Accordingly, the OEM touts them (particularly the latter) as practical, color-accurate displays, and also rates them for 160-degree opening angles.

Further to its business-like properties, the Vision 14 offers a 3.5mm port, an SD card reader and one HDMI 2.0 port amongst its connectivity options. They also include 1 USB type-C port per side, both of which are rated for DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery (USB-PD), and one of which is listed as Thunderbolt 4.

The Vision 14's CPU options are thus 11th-gen Intel, and consist of either the Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1165G7. Its base model has 8GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, although this can be expanded up to the tune of 64GB. There are also 2 SSD slots (one of which has PCIe 4.0 x4 compatibility, while the other is PCIe 3.0 x2).

Finally, the Vision 14 even has a removable battery, meaning it is part of an increasingly endangered species at this stage. Schenker has already released it for pre-orders on Bestware, starting at €1,099 (~US$1,342), and aims to ship it from the second half of June 2021 at present.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
