NEC is taking part into this week’s CES 2016 and they just debuted a very interesting hybrid going as the Lavie Hybrid Zero. It’s a 11.6 inch convertible that weighs 500 grams in the tablet part and 1 kg in laptop form.

The casing is very unusual, in that it relies on a special alloy of magnesium, lithium and aluminum, that’s both sturdy and light. Inside we find the sixth generation of Intel Core M processor, that offers support for Intel RealSense, in tandem with a Full HD 3D camera integrated onto the device. The slate part docks into a special tray at the upper part of the keyboard dock.

Coming in black or Silver, the NEC Lavie product includes full USB ports, a HDMI and most likely an USB type C as well. Windows 10 is the OS of choice and since Core M CPUs are included here I find it hard to believe this device will go past 4 or maybe 8 GB of RAM.
