Hardware: Lenovo unveils the Nec Lavie Mini handheld PC
The year is 2021 and there is still no real competition to the Nintendo Switch. However, there are now some interesting handheld PCs in the works. Including the Nec Lavie Mini, which Lenovo unveiled at CES 2021. The Lavie Mini comes with a pair of detachable controllers and an eight inch touchscreen. This is not only a little larger than the 6.2 inch touchscreen of the Nintendo Switch, but also has a significantly higher resolution of 1920 x 1200. There is also a 4K60 dock for the TV, with USB Type-C and Type-A ports. In addition to the similarities with the Nintendo Switch, the Lavie Mini is also a - very small - 2-in-1. The keyboard can easily be folded in or out behind the screen.

The Mini is probably powered by an Intel Core i7 1180G7. It also includes support for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, two USB Type-C ports, and a socket for a microphone and headphones. The mini also has a 256GB SSD and 16GB LPDDR4X RAM. However, this is permanently integrated in the device and therefore cannot be exchanged. Unfortunately there is neither a price nor a date for publication. So only time will tell whether the Mini will suffer the same fate as Alienware's "Concept UFO" and will simply be forgotten at some point. On the official website, however, Lenovo writes that the device should be "available soon".

There is a little more information for the GPD Win 3. This is to be financed from January 15th through an Indiegogo campaign. The preview of the campaign is already available.
