The Japanese company introduced an ultrabook with a 4-year warranty
The Japanese manufacturer of monitors iiyama introduced the ultra-light Campus PC laptop with a 4-year warranty. It is intended exclusively for the educational market of the country.
The original version of iiyama Campus was released in 2022. The new 2024 edition received a 14-inch monitor, an Intel Core i5-1335U processor with integrated Intel graphics, 8 GB of DDR5 RAM, a 500 GB NVMe solid-state drive, and Windows 11 Home. The matte LCD screen has a resolution of 1920×1080.
The laptop is equipped with a webcam, supports Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5. It received a Thunderbolt 4 port, USB 3.1, USB 3.0, HDMI, a microSD memory card reader and a headphone jack.
Campus PC weighs less than 1 kg and can run on battery for up to 11.5 hours. It meets the US Department of Defense procurement standard “MIL-STD-810G” for shock, vibration and temperature resistance.
In addition to the 4-year warranty, the manufacturer offers round-the-clock support and individual assistance in 70 computer workshops throughout Japan. Buyers can choose a minimum purchase price guarantee. This allows students to lock in the cost of a higher spec version of the laptop that will remain the same for two or four years.
iiyama Campus is sold only in Japan and costs a little more than $870.
