Rhyme / Notebook


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

“Reimagined connected standby” is a new value proposition for next generation ultra slim notebooks. Rhyme aspires to meet that proposition. It is a 14” ultra-slim notebook with a Mini LIVE infotainment window. The exposed Mini LIVE infotainment window serves as a music player control panel when the notebook is closed. Users can also assign favorite display information through dedicated apps. There is a rear I/O door that can be quickly flipped down to reveal the connectors. This design element solves the conflict between ultra-slim design and standard connector usability.
