After several rounds of teasing, the ILLEGEAR arté has finally gone gold and made official starting today.
While most of ILLEGEAR’s products are geared towards production and gaming, the arté takes a 90-degree turn as it still packs great hardware for a mobile device but designed for creative use. The main highlight of the laptop is its full support towards the cause by using a new INFINIVISION 16:10 display with a resolution of 2880 x 1880, 90Hz refresh rate, and covers 100% sRGB color gamut. The overall design shares a similar style with the IONIC for being a MAX power, MIN quirk machine as the smooth trackpad and silent keyboard will make you complete tasks in silence.
For the computing parts, it can be configured to either run an Intel Core i5-1130H or i7-11370H with a base RAM of 16GB (MAX 64GB) and 512GB of PCIe storage with optional choices going for PCIe 4.0 drives made available as well. Meanwhile, the I/O ports include one Thunderbolt 4, one USB-C 3.1 Gen 2, two USB-A 3.1 Gen 1, one HDMI 2.0, a 2-in-1 card reader with the USB-C port supporting 100W of power delivery in case you don’t want to carry the barrel-type power brick around. All of these are crammed into a chassis at a thickness of no more than 15.6mm and weighing at only 1.04kg inclusive of battery. In simple terms, light and powerful.
The ILLEGEAR arté starts from RM4,599 for housing the Core i5 variant while the Core i7 model will run you RM4,998 with the above-mentioned configurations. As per ILLEGEAR tradition, the launch promo for new laptops will also include a free 512GB Samsung SSD, application of Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut liquid metal, and color calibration service.
