This laptop has no ports, but is incredibly thin


The new Craob X changes one thing we’re all used to with laptops: it removes all ports in favor of creating an incredibly thin device. Whether that trade-off is worth it is up to each person, but it’s an interesting design choice.

As you might expect, the Craob X laptop relies on wireless charging to receive a charge, as reported by My laptop guide. The downside, of course, is that the computer drops the extra depth added by even small USB-C ports. The result is a device with a depth of only 7 mm. Compare that to the MacBook Air, which is 16mm thick, and it’s clear there’s a noticeable difference.

The laptop is lighter than most and weighs just 1.9 pounds. Again, using the MacBook Air as a comparison, Apple’s laptop weighs 2.8 pounds. That’s almost a full pound lighter, which is a difference you’ll notice.

Of course, you have to ask yourself whether it’s worth losing nearly a pound and just under an inch to sacrifice the USB-C ports you’ve come to know and love. You can use the wireless charger that comes with the new Craob X as a port hub, so you can still access USB, SD, etc. while connected.

As for other specs, the Craob X features solid hardware. It comes with a 13.3-inch 4K UHD display, DDR5 RAM, SSD storage, and up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1280P processor.

It might seem hard to imagine a world where laptops and phones don’t have ports, but rumors of a portless iPhone have been around for a while, so this laptop may be ahead of its time.
