This is a completely new model, which we brought straight from the shop. It has not yet received its own name, only the number, but thanks to new technological solutions we were able to improve the weight and size characteristics and ergonomics. We have also implemented a number of solutions in terms of import substitution. A number of functional units, which used to be on the import element base, were transferred to domestic chips,said Sklyarov.

In the new model there is also a miniature joystick, and the mouse buttons are duplicated under the left hand for quickness of work. Military laptops use special software and an operating system from the Linux family, ”the article says.
