It is powered by AMD's A6 and A4 chips with Radeon graphics.

It too will be powered by an Intel Celeron processor, come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

Just like the tablet, this entry-level device with an 11.6-inch display features a rubberized chassis with thick bumpers and is similarly resistant to minor drops.

AMD A4-9120C: 2-cores/2-threads, 2.4/1.6GHz, 1MB L2 & L3 Cache, Radeon R4 3-Cores 600MHz. It will weight 3.7 pounds and have an excellent battery life of up to 13 hours.
