Kogan’s new budget Atlas UltraSlim is thinner than the MacBook Air
Amidst the madness of CES 2017, Kogan quietly launches its super-cheap, super-thin Atlas UltraSlim range.
As tech news pours out of Las Vegas from CES 2017, Australian tech retailer Kogan has announced a brand-new range of super-thin laptops with their sights set on budget shoppers.
At their thickest ends, the Atlas UltraSlim and Atlas UltraSlim Pro measure a measly 13.5mm. That's 3.5mm thinner than the MacBook Air's 17mm thickness but still a little thicker than the latest MacBook Pro, which is 13.1mm at its thickest point. Still, an impressive feat for a laptop that costs $569 and $799 for the Pro, which has a higher resolution display and more powerful processor, more storage and more RAM.
Both the UltraSlim and UltraSlim Pro boast an aluminium body, which weighs in at just 1.35kg and run on a 64-bit Windows 10 operating system.
The Atlas UltraSlim range isn't out to compete with the top of the range laptops we've seen from CES (like Dell's gaming-focused Inspiron or Dell's insane triple screen Valerie), but it's a reasonably priced option for those who don't need the latest and greatest specs. A good replacement for your parents' dusty old machine.
Both laptops are exclusive to Kogan and available to purchase through the online store.
