The aim of Mini X is to design a highly portable laptop with the most expansive, 13.3” micro-bezel viewing experience in the smallest 12” footprint. This is made possible by a unique interlocking hinge that connects the display to the keyboard, where when the lid is closed, the keyboard is able to be repositioned in the middle to minimize space. But when the lid is lifted open, the interlocked display will also draw the keyboard forward at a gentle slope for ergonomic typing, as well as in creating space below to allow better airflow for thermal cooling that increases performance while reducing overheating when using laptop in the lap.
