Intel NUC P14E laptop item

Intel introduced the Compute Element concept in 2019 as a replacement for its Compute Card. The idea is a modular hardware unit that combines the processor with connectivity and other components to make it easier to swap out a PC for an updated version. It’s been central to recent versions of the company’s Next Unit of Computing (NUC) barebones desktop designs, but it’s only now that Intel has been able to make a NUC laptop that could house a mobile version of the Compute Element.

the NUC P14E laptop item is compatible with the U-Series version of the NUC 11 Compute Element, allowing you to switch between units containing an Intel processor, memory and an integrated operating system. The NUC 11 Compute Element is available in a range of processor options, from a Celeron CPU to the latest Core i7 chips. As the P14E is designed with the enterprise in mind, options also include vPro versions of the Core i5 and Core i7 processors for enterprise-grade security and remote access capabilities. Core i5 and i7 modules feature the latest integrated Iris Xe graphics, while Core i3 and Celeron editions are based on Intel’s UHD graphics.

As a further nod to corporate tastes, the P14E features a sleek anodized aluminum body and has been ruggedized tested to MIL-STD-801H durability standards. It packs a 13.9-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 3,000 x 2,000 and 400 nits of brightness. Specs like RAM and storage capacity depend on the compute engine used (although it ranges from 4GB to 16GB of storage), but connectivity includes a Thunderbolt 4 port, a pair of USB 3.2 ports, Wi-Fi 6, and wired Gigabit Ethernet Support. The 3.3 pound P14E is also equipped with a fingerprint reader, a Kensington NanoSaver lock and a 77 Wh battery with fast charging.

Pricing and availability for the P14E has not yet been announced, but as a reference design it will likely serve as the basis for systems sold directly to corporate and government customers. While desktop NUC PCs are sometimes available as bare-bones kits that consumers can buy and upgrade themselves, it’s unclear if this approach will extend to NUC laptops like the P14E.
