NEO outs own Ultrabook under their Edge series

NEO is now joining the Ultrabook bandwagon by announcing their own under their slim family series called Edge.

This new NEO Edge ZD2UW Ultrabook which is going to be made available this month will be packing Intel’s 3rd Generation (Ivy Bridge) Core i5 processor. It has a tough metallic aluminum chassis with a slim tapered edge which contributes to its thinness never before seen on a NEO notebook.

It will be a 14-inch affair for NEO’s first Ultrabook and it will have that rare optical disc drive which Samsung also favored on their 14-inch Series 5 Ultrabook. You’ll also get a hybrid storage system here, 32GB SSD for system files and a whopping 500GB HDD for your main storage. As for ports, you’ll get 2x USB 3.0 (that’s two!), LAN, HDMI, and a card reader.

NEO claims you can get 5 hours of a single battery charge with their Ultrabook which weighs less than 1.8 kg which is not too shabby for a 14-incher.

This NEO Edge ZD2UW has a retail price of Php33,999 when it comes out some time this month. The closest Ultrabook when it comes to price would have to be the Acer Aspire S3 at Php39,990 but that utilizes last generation’s Intel processor.

        Hi Calvin please have a review on this unit because now the price of this ultrabook is down to 24k(cash)but surprisingly NEO mega mall showroom doesn’t have this unit except for PC EXPRESS. I really looks good for its price specially the aluminum frame but I’m wondering about the performance of it’s speaker and how good is it in term of heat management since this unit does not any vent on it’s bottom part. Thank you

        • Bien Santos

          correction “does not any vent on it’s bottom part.”- should be doesn’t have any vent on it’s bottom part.

          will ask if there’s an updated version of this one.

  • Johnlove

    How long is the standby time and running time? Nobody in the megamall showroom could tell me.
