NEC is expanding its LaVie line of compact computers with a new 11.6 inch tablet with a detachable keyboard dock.

Full details and pricing haven’t been announced yet, but the new LaVie Zero Hybrid is a premium device with a magnesium alloy case and a spare battery in the keyboard section, which should allow for reasonably long battery life.

When used as a laptop, the new NEC LaVie Hybrid Zero weighs about 2.2 pounds. Take away the keyboard and you’ve got a 1.1 tablet. It’s powered by an Intel Core M Skylake processor and the tablet has an Intel RealSense 3D camera.

NEC introduced a 13.3 inch LaVie Hybrid Zero in 2015, but that model featured a convertible design with a 360-degree hinge that allowed the screen to fold back when it wasn’t in use. The new model is a 2-in-1 tablet which lets you leave the keyboard at home if you don’t need it.

On the other hand, last year’s model is actually more powerful thanks to support for a Core i5 or Core i7 processor. The 13.3 inch convertible is also pretty light-weight, at about 2.04 pounds.
