In addition, it offers support for three 4K monitors, allowing users to use more than one screen at the same time.

This new laptop is called “Copilot Plus PC” and supports the artificial intelligence-based features of Windows 11 thanks to its neural processing unit. Features such as Recall make it easier to search for information on the device, while offering advanced technologies such as instant translation in video calls. These features provide great convenience in business and daily use.
