"ASUS NovaGo is a convertible laptop with leading Gigabit LTE connectivity and battery life that revolutionises what the personal PC can be for consumers", Cristiano Amon, President, Qualcomm Technologies Inc, said in a statement. Hence, the laptop seems focused on connectivity and power efficiency more than anything else. Out of the box, it'll run on Windows 10 S, with a "one-time option" to switch to Windows 10 Pro, but the details on that haven't been completely disclosed yet.

Asus NovaGo starts at $599 and goes all the way up to $899. Powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile PC platform with X16 LTE, the NovaGo is always on, always connected with a battery supporting 30 days of standby and 22 hours of active use. It supports 10-point multitouch as well as ASUS Pen support with 1,024 pressure levels.

First off, the NovaGo is a 13.3-inch 2-in-1 convertible, meaning its display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution can't be detached from the keyboard base. The notebook is also equipped with ASUS Eye Care and Tru2Lite video technology. Interestingly, it also ensures users remain connected even in sleep mode. It comes with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of onboard storage, but the specs might vary by the time of release, which should be around early 2018. ASUS NovaGo will first be sold in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, mainland China, and Taiwan.
