Intel owns the next computing division, the NUC brand, under which the company launches computing equipment. So far, the company has introduced small desktop device designs, but is now expanding its product portfolio.
The company has released its new NUC M15 laptop kit, which is basically a pre-built laptop powered by the company’s own 10nm quad-core Tiger Lake processor.
Intel’s NUC M15 laptop kit (code-named Bishop County) is a white-box laptop that manufacturers can easily configure for sale to consumers.
One of the advantages of companies adopting this manufacturing method is that they don’t need to spend a lot on research and development. It is equipped with a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS display, and the company offers a choice of touch screen or non-touch screen.
The device is powered by Intel’s 11th-generation Core i5-1135G7 or Core i7-1165G7 quad-core processors.
Laptops are not equipped with discrete graphics, but with Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics. As for the memory, you can choose to weld 8GB or 16GB RAM, so you cannot upgrade it after purchasing the device.
As for storage space, it can accommodate 1 square meter of NVMe SSD, but the storage capacity will be determined by the final seller.
The product is about 0.6 inches thick and weighs about 1.7 kg. The company said that the device comes with a 73Whr battery, which can provide 16 hours of video playback.
Please note that this device is not directly provided to end users from Intel. The company’s laptop partners can obtain the NUC M15 laptop kit, then rename these devices, configure them according to their choice, and then resell them on the market.
