The 2020 model runs on 10th generation Intel Ice Lake (Core i7, up to 3.9 GHz) processor. There are three variants on offer – 4K or Full HD Plus (1920×1200) touch, or Full HD Plus non-touch.

The 2-in-1 features an Infinity Edge display on all four sides. The aspect ratio is 16:10 and the screen-to-body ratio is 91.5 percent. This has resulted in a 13.4-inch display in a 11-inch form factor, effectively offering 6.8 percent more screen. The brightness is 500 nits, which is 25 percent more than the previous generation.
