By May 4, 2021No Comments

Today we take a look at a few of the new Intel Evo models from Acer, Lenovo, and MSI, to see if you can find the laptop that’s right for you. 

Here’s a quick recap concerning what you need to know about the Intel Evo platform.

What to know about Intel Evo

Every Evo laptop PC is powered by an 11th gen Intel Core processor, for when you need instant responsiveness in all of your daily applications. It has the processing power to handle any workload, so you can expect your laptop to keep up whether you’re working on the go or unwinding at home.

The Iris display is perfect for designers who need precision down to the pixel, gamers who want to keep their image crisp, or just anyone who wants to watch premium Full High-Def content while seeing every single pixel on Keanu Reeves’ breathtaking face.

High-quality audio and video performance is built into each design. This includes FHD cameras, high quality speakers and microphones, basically turning your laptop into its own media center, which also looks great in video chats.

Nine or more hours of battery life for anyone who needs to do a full day of work on a single charge, and if you’re in a pinch, thirty minutes of charging earns you additional four hours of battery life.

The instant wake system has your computer up and running faster than you can say “Instant wake system.”

And finally all the machines on the Intel Evo platform can stay connected even on busy wireless networks thanks to Wi-Fi 6 technology.

Anyone who uses their laptop as their primary computer and is interested in an upgrade should definitely look into any of the products engineered to the Evo specifications.
