Both models have a screen resolution of 1920 x 720, viewing angles are 176°/176° for W12IE3S-MRB1FP and 170°/170° for W15IE3S-MRB1FP. The front panel design is identical, the degree of protection rate is IP66. Contrast is 1000 to 1. There is some difference in nominal brightness, for 12,3” it is 1000 nit, while for 14,9” it is 950 nit. The chassis of the PC is made of aluminum. Supported mounting types include VESA 75 for 12,3” and panel/VESA 75 for 14,9”.

Intel Elkhart Lake Pentium N6415 CPU

The computing heart of the new computers is the Intel Elkhart Lake Pentium N6415 generation processor with a base clock frequency of 1.20 GHz. This is a 4-core CPU with 4 threads made using a 10-nanometer process technology. The maximum clock frequency is 3.00 GHz. The maximum supported amount of RAM is 16GB DDR4 in one slot. The processor integrates Intel UHD Graphics for 10th Gen Intel Processors. Power consumption is 6.5W. Modern energy-efficient and functional processor for solving most standard everyday tasks.

Projected capacitive touch screen
