Micromax, in association with Microsoft and Intel, has released Canvas Lapbook L1160 at Rs. 10499. Available exclusively on Amazon India, the new Lapbook L1160 is aimed at students, youths, small-scale businesses, senior citizens including first time users of laptops and computers.
Commenting on the launch, Shubhajit Sen, Chief Marketing Officer, Micromax Informatics Limited revealed that the new launch will accelerate the growth of PC adoption in the country. Moreover, the new Lapbook will bridge the divide of the Indian computing ecosystem and also, make a smart push to the Digital India initiative.
Sen further stated that Micromax is planning to make a strong presence in the laptops category in India after the remarkable success of Canvas Laptab I, II and Lapbook series.
On the specifications front, Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 features an 11.6-inch ultra-slim IPS display with a resolution of 1366×178 pixels, a 1.83Ghz Intel Quad Core Processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC storage (expandable up to 64GB using SD card) loaded with Windows 10.
You should note that the display is not touch-enabled like the previous Canvas Laptab series but you can make use of an external mouse to perform normal activities.
Capable of delivering up to 10 hours of backup through a 4100mAh battery, the device is equipped with dual bass speakers to give you an immersive sound effect.
However, the speakers are placed on the bottom of the Lapbook, as per the image on the Amazon product page, which will likely affect the sound quality.
Responding to media queries, Noor Patel, Director Category Management, Amazon India disclosed that the company is delighted to establish a strategic partnership with Micromax to bring next generation Lapbook to every household in India.
To fulfill Digital India initiative, people need credible, accessible and affordable products and this is what the new Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 delivers, adds Sandeep Aurora, Director, Marketing and Market Development, Intel South Asia.
Unlike the previous Canvas laptab, the new Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 comes with two USB 2 ports, 1 HDMI, and Ethernet ports respectively. The HDMI port will be useful for streaming movies and games to your Television.
Since the Canvas Lapbook L1160 is manufactured in a typical laptop style, the device only features 0.3MP front-facing camera, which is insufficient for normal use.
The new Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1160 is currently available on Amazon at Rs. 10499 for a limited period of time.
