Due to this, its productivity has increased by 85%. The base RAM of the laptop has grown from 4 to 8 GB, and the minimum amount of main SSD memory is still 128 GB.
As before, the laptop display has a diagonal of 13.5 inches with a resolution of 2256 * 1504 pixels. The battery life of the laptop is over 14 hours in video mode.
