keeley lake

Last year Intel was showing off a Canoe Lake reference design for ultrathin notebooks using the company’s low power Atom chips. This year Intel is rolling out a new reference design called KeeleyLake for ultrathin netbooks which can also be used as tablet computers.

The Keeley Lake design features a base so thin that there’s no room for USB ports or other connectors near the front of the laptop. Instead the ports are all crammed into the back, where Intel has presumably also stuffed th ebattery.

The key thing setting Keeley Lake apart from Canoe Lake though, is the fact that the hinge connecting the screen to the laptop base is in the center rather than on the sides. This allows you to rotate the screen and fold it down over the keyboard so you can use the computer in tablet mode.

Notebook Italia spotted a Keeley Lake prototype on display in Taiwan, but more details will likely emerge once the Computex trade show officially gets underway tomorrow.
