Today at Plaza Lowyat, JOI, a brand under SNS is launching a brand new ultra-thin laptop for the masses. How thin you say? The laptop is only 14mm thick, and weighs 1.35kgs! Easily slip it in your laptop bag and it will not weigh you down at all.
As for the specs, the JOI Book 100 is powered with an Intel Celeron N3450 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal eMMC storage and 128GB of SSD. With only 32GB of internal storage, that might be an easy no for some. But luckily, JOI has thought ahead and allows you to add an additional M.2 drive of up to 512GB. To do so, simply remove the two screws located at the bottom of the laptop, slot in your new drive, and voila. But if you wish, you could utilise a microSD card of up to 64GB to slightly boost your storage capacity. Out of the box, the laptop also runs on Windows 10.
Another key point to the laptop is with its display. It features a 14.1-inch Full HD IPS display with 3mm thick side bezels. This will allow you to easily immerse yourself in whatever video or show that you’re watching or streaming on the laptop. On top of the display you will also spot a 2-megapixel front camera for all your conference talk needs. According to JOI, with the laptop’s 10,000 mAh battery, it can last for up to 8 hours of working time. All of this wrapped into a sleek and slim fully metal build. For your ports, you have a micro HDMI port, along with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a 3.5mm jack.
For those interested, the JOI Book 100 comes in Gold and Dark Grey and is priced at RM1,299, and is available to purchase now from officially available online (GLOO and Lazada) and offline from official retailers. A pretty, slim and stylish solution for those that need a lifestyle laptop with passable specs and will not bleed your wallet dry.
