Intel® Evo™ Laptops for Holiday 2021

Intel® Evo™ laptops offer:

  • Premium mobile experience based on thousands of hours of research.

  • Responsive performance and long battery life in thin-and-light form factors.

  • Cutting-edge connectivity with Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt™ 4.

  • Devices co-engineered and validated with laptop makers.



Whether you’re shopping for yourself or looking for someone else, the last thing you want to do is compromise. That’s why we worked closely with leading laptop makers to co-engineer a lineup of premium thin-and-light designs based on the Intel® Evo™ platform. Each one delivers a combination of purposeful technologies and real-world performance that you can take everywhere.

To wear the Intel Evo badge, devices must meet a series of key experience indicators based on thousands of hours of research into how people use their laptops. From waking up in less than a second to juggling multiple local and cloud-based apps, these requirements ensure an exceptional experience for everyday activities.

Intel Evo systems feature 11th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processors augmented by Intel® Iris® Xe integrated graphics. They’re 40% more responsive1 than a two-year-old laptop and offer at least nine hours of battery life with a Full HD display2. Performance with photo and video editing is up to 3x faster than the competition3. Thanks to Wi-Fi 6, Intel Evo laptops also enjoy faster connectivity on compatible networks. And with Thunderbolt™ 4, they provide 40Gb/s of bandwidth over a single cable that’s compatible with an ecosystem of verified peripherals, including docking stations, displays, storage, and external GPUs.

By carefully co-engineering and validating Intel Evo designs with laptop makers, we can help ensure that they deliver an exceptional mobile experience. This approach provides a measure of consistency, but we still encourage our partners to innovate, resulting in a diverse collection of devices that offers different implementations of the same formula.
