It also promises comfortable typing in dark conditions with an 86-key backlit keyboard. Below the keyboard is the usual pointing device, a touchpad with multi-gesture support. Optical drive is not included unsurprisingly. Available ports include an HDMI port, a microphone-in / headphone-out jack, a USB-C port with Sleep and Charge, and three USB 3.0 ports. If you need DisplayPort, you have to use Type-C to DisplayPort adapter. There is a 3-in-1 card reader as well but for SD cards only.

The new ATIV Book brings latest wireless features. You can transfer files easily with Bluetooth 4.1, connect to wireless router at high speed with WiFi 802.11ac 2×2, and mirror your display with Intel WiDi. Audio output is also impressive thanks to four speakers rated at 2W with Sound Alive effect. Dimensions of this product are 14.72 x 9.83 x 0.70-inch and it weighs 4.45 lbs. Therefore, it’s a suitable device if you need a slim and lightweight high-performance laptop. With the included 4 cell Lithium-ion battery, it can provide battery life up to 6.5 hours – not bad for a laptop with standard voltage processor and discrete graphics card.
