There’s a 10.6 inch model with a Core M3 processor and a 1920 x 1280 pixel display and a 12 inch model with a Core i5 chip and a 2160 x 1440 pixel screen.
Both tablets feature fanless designs, USB 3.1 Type-C ports, microSD card readers, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, and optional 4G LTE support.
Keep in mind, both models have low power Kaby Lake Y-series chips rather than the laptop-class processors found in some high-end Windows tablets like Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup. But the latest Y-series chips are pretty zippy, which is one of the reasons Intel feels justified in using the Core i5 and Core i7 names for higher-end versions.
