Craob X, an ultralight and portless laptop

The Craob X is an ultralight laptop concept that wants to overcome one of the main problems that affect this type of device, and that prevents them from becoming thinner and more compact, the presence of ports and connectors. It is a very easy question to understand, you just have to think about the thickness it adds, for example, the presence of USB Type-A ports, or a Gigabit LAN connector.

By removing those connectors, it would be possible to integrate all of the computer’s components into a much thinner and lighter chassis. That is the bet of Craob X, a team that, at the moment, is in a conceptual design phase, and that, if it comes to fruition, promises to offer just 7mm thick. To give you an idea of ​​what this means, I’ll give you a comparative example, the Surface Laptop 4, a very light laptop that has a thickness of 14.7mm

The Craob X would be twice as thin as the Surface Laptop 4, thanks to the elimination of ports and physical connectors, but this would not prevent it from offering a good level of performance, at least in theory, since according to those responsible for the project would have top-notch specs. These would be your keys:

  • 13.3-inch screen with 4K resolution and ultra-thin borders.
  • Front camera integrated in a circular floating island.
  • Intel Core i7-1280P (Alder Lake-P) Processor with Iris Xe Integrated GPU.
  • Up to 32GB of LPDDR5 memory.
  • Up to 2 TB of storage type SSD PCIE Gen4 x4.
  • WiFi 6E.
  • The Craob X would weigh less than 900 grams.

To recharge this laptop you would use a kind of totally wireless “hub”, which would be fixed to the back of the screen thanks to a magnet. That hub will feature USB Type-C ports, USB Type-A ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a miroSD card slot. It is a very interesting concept and full of possibilities, but at the moment the Craob X is only in the conceptual phase, so there is no guarantee that it will reach the market.
