Star Lite Mk II Linux laptop computer opening to show Ubuntu Linux running

We returned to the Lab with only one goal - to create an impressively powerful, lightweight and compact Linux laptop. It had to become something else. The new Star Lite Mk II delivers up to a 20% performance increase with an Intel® Pentium® N4200 quad-core processor and even faster SSD storage. The low power requirement of this processor and the Type II anodised aluminium chassis eliminate the need for a fan, meaning the Star Lite Mk II is virtually silent.
