IBM is working on a fiber-friendly version of its IBM ThinkPad XPS 13 laptop.
The company is also testing a cheaper version of the laptop that will sell for $1,499, but the company didn’t reveal details on the new laptop, or when it will be available.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the new ThinkPad will have a base price of $1.99, and will come with a 13-inch screen.
It will also have a 5K touchscreen, which can display 1080p video and a USB-C port, though that connection won’t be compatible with other devices.
The new ThinkPads are currently priced at $2.99.
IBM’s new laptop will come in a matte white color with a matte black back.
The ThinkPad 13 will be made of a flexible plastic that IBM says is less prone to cracking than traditional metal and will be lighter than traditional glass.
It’s also expected to feature a magnesium alloy chassis that can be easily tempered to achieve high temperatures, and the company is planning to include a power adapter that lets users charge the laptop with their own battery.
Other specs include a 1080p display, a 5.5-inch touchscreen, a microSD slot, USB-A ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, an SD card reader, an Intel HD Graphics 520 graphics processor, and an Intel Core i5 processor.
The notebook will also include a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB 3.0 port, a 3G port, and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.
The new Think Pads are expected to launch in January, but they’ll likely be available only to consumers who already own the cheaper ThinkPad 14.
