If you want a light and portable laptop that gives you real speed and power, look out for one with a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor on board. Here’s what makes them so special.


What is a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor?

Intel’s all-new 10th generation processors can be found on the latest laptops. They’ve been designed to give portable devices incredible power, along with intelligent performance, flexible connectivity and immersive entertainment. Let’s break those down for you in a little more detail.


Intelligent performance

A 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor will make your laptop the on-the-go multi-tasking powerhouse you’ve always dreamed of. They’ve been engineered to be incredibly efficient, so they’ll give you more than enough battery life to handle those everyday tasks you do most often. You’ll be able to stream your favourite HD movies and work on major projects for hours on end, without even thinking about heading for the plug.


Flexible and easy connectivity 

If your laptop’s powered by a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, connectivity’s going to be a breeze. Exactly as it should be.

Connecting to Wi-Fi? You’ll notice how fast and responsive everything, especially if your laptop has Intel® Wi-Fi 6 on board. It gives you the power to enjoy lag-free streaming, gaming and browsing even when there’s a lot of other connected devices using the same Wi-Fi router.

Wired connectivity is just as good. If your laptop has a superfast Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C connector, you’ll be able to experience lightning-fast speed and responsiveness even with lots of peripherals and accessories attached.


Big time entertainment

With a 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor onboard, your laptop’s going to be great for entertainment. The processor works in perfect harmony with Intel Iris® Plus graphics (on selected laptops) to make games look extra-special - so if Fortnite’s your thing you’ll be able to jump into battle in Full HD, with rich colours and amazing levels of detail. The processor can also reduce and lag and latency by up to 75%, to make you more responsive and give you that extra edge. And if you’re lucky enough to get involved in a match that takes a while, remember that the battery life is designed to last, so you can keep going for hours.

If movies are more your thing, you can binge on your favourite shows for hours. And hours. You’ll even be able to watch Scorsese’s The Irishman from start to finish, if you’ve got enough time on your hands.
