Shen didn’t add if the machine will available globally during those months, but did say that it will carry a price tag of between $1000 and $1500 (£1027/€1097).

The sliding keyboard's thought to maximise chassis airflow

He also added that the machine will be fitted with a "new polymer battery" able to provide up to five hours of life from a full charge.

Shown off at CES in Las Vegas earlier this year, Airo will feature a keyboard that slides upwards when the laptop is unfolded - as illustrated in the above image. The main advantage of this origami-inspired design is thought to centre on increased chassis cooling. ®
