The Schenker Vision 14 is a thin and light laptop that packs a lot of horsepower into compact design. It has a 14 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel IPS LCD display with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a 16:10 aspect ratio and the latest version features a 40-watt Intel Core i7-12700H 14-core, 20-thread processor, optional support for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics, and up to a 99 Wh battery.
But the laptop measures just 15.6mm (0.61 inches) thick and has a starting weight of just 1.1 kg (2.4 pounds). The new model is available in Europe starting today for €1,659 and up (including VAT).
The starting price is for a 2.9 pound model with Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, a 99 Wh battery, and a single M.2 slot for PCIe 4.0 storage. Schenker says this model offers up to 11 hours of battery life during video playback.
Higher-priced configurations pack more graphics power into an even lighter body… at the cost of battery life. Models with NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti graphics are exclusively available with a 53 Wh battery. That’s a bit disappointing since you get hit with a double whammy of a smaller battery and a GPU which can use up to 45 watts. Don’t expect stellar battery life here. On the bright side, models with NVIDIA graphics have two M.2 slots for solid state storage.
Common features across all models include two DDR4-3200 SODIMM slots for up to 64GB of dual channel RAM, Thunderbolt 4, USB Type-C and Type-A ports, HDMI, and 3.5mm audio ports, an SD card reader, stereo speakers, and a 90 Wh power adapter.
The laptop has a backlit keyboard, a Microsoft Precision glass touchpad, and a magnesium alloy chassis.
The new Schenker Vision 14 is an upgrade over earlier models, which shipped with 11th-gen Intel Tiger Lake processor options.
Also does the 3050Ti model really only have a 90Wh charger as well ? I mean it has a combined tdp of 90W so it can draw even slightly more than that ( display, ssd, ram, wifi, bluetooth. keyboard backlight etc. draw a few watts too ) without boost unless they are counting on it constantly throttling .. For powerful laptops, you almost always get a charger that lets you run at full power and charge your battery at least slowly at the same time.
So its probably the same most likely Clevo chassis as Slimbook Executive 14 .. the 99Wh model is basically the same. But Slimbook puts 3050Ti only into the 16″. Im not sure whether the 14″ can cool this .. It has been done with 11370H and 3050Ti last year and im not entirely sure how that one fared… Anyway I think a second M.2 slot is a dumb choice if the battery is as small as that as a result .. Perhaps as a special case if you always have access to wall power but you have to lug your device around all day.
Yes, it is a i7, yes it is thin and lite, but asking €1600 for a laptop with nothing better than iGPU or RTX 3050 is daylight robbery.
