Intel’s New Fanless Reference Model Really Is Insanely Thin

Intel wasn’t kidding when it said that it could make a wafer-thin PC with its new fanless Core M processors. We’ve just clapped eyes on the reference model at Computex, and it’s gorgeous.

Unfortunately, it’s sequestered away from human hands inside a glass box, but it looks amazing.

It’s 7.2mm thin, and clips into a keyboard dock with a cooling system built-in which is meant to “boost performance” when connected. Despite the fact that it doesn’t need full-time fans, cooling the whole thing down still helps.

Intel expects that the majority of convertibles coming out in the next 12 months will be based on the fanless Core M CPUs.

If this is what the future of convertibles is, sign me up!
