(Web Desk) – Chinese company Magic Ben, which aims to revive the Netbook trend, has introduced the world’s smallest laptop “Mag1” with a touchpad, measuring just 20.7 x 14.6 x 1.8cm – a footprint almost as small as an A5 sheet – with a weight of less than 700g, according to a report published in TechCrunch.
However, the device has more ports than Apple’s laptop, Macbook, and has a full size USB 3.0 port, Type-C connector, microSD card reader, an audio socket and a micro HDMI port.
Magic Ben Mag1 ultra-portable laptop, available at a price of $790 at Gearbest, is small, light, slim yet powerful, said the report.
The device has some high-end components like an Intel Core M3-8100Y CPU, 16 GB memory and a 512GB solid state drive. The biggest USP of this laptop is its touchscreen display, with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.
Although, it is extremely small, the Mag1 comes with a 30AHr battery, which as per the manufacturer, will ensure that the device function for up to seven hours. Another interesting aspect of the Mag1 is the fact that it can be charged with a power bank via a Type C connector.
Of the things it does not have, this tiny laptop does not have a webcam, nor does it have a 360-degree hinge or active pen support.
Since the device is so small, it is no surprise that the keyboard is also small, which can make the layout seem a bit weird or unusual. But when compared to other mini laptops the keyboard seems to be okay, said a report published in liliputing.
The touchpad is easier to use than the optical touch sensors that are found on other devices in this category, the report added.
