The base model comes with the aforementioned 11.6-inch 1080p IPS screen, a 1.8GHz Intel Core i3-3217u processor, Intel HD4000 graphics, 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state drive.

Battery life is said to be 8+ hours for the base model. The tablet weighs in at 2.3 pounds, which puts it a bit heavier than competitors and the device will not be available with mobile broadband.
