The display is the main and, perhaps, the only highlight of the laptop. It is based on a 13.3-inch OLED panel when unfolded. When folded, each half measures 9.6 inches. Despite the complex hinge mechanism, moreover, consisting exclusively of metal components, the laptop turned out to be very light – the weight is 999 grams.
