If you need more power, the system can be overclocked to 4.2 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM, which comes in a 1 x 8GB configuration, helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs. If you need more RAM, this system accepts up to 32GB, using one 16GB module in each of the 260-pin SO-DIMM slots.
The 14″ UWVA Sure View IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution that is equipped with LED backlighting, a 16:9 aspect ratio, 700 cd/m2 brightness (350 cd/m2 in privacy mode), a contrast ratio of 150:1 or 110:1 (both in privacy mode), a refresh rate of 120 Hz, viewing angles of 85/85/85/85° (50/50/85/85° in privacy mode), and touchscreen functionality that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A Ports
