This could be the thinnest laptop ever made — but it doesn't have any ports

What you need to know

  • Craob is advertising an incredibly thin laptop that only weighs 1.9 lbs.
  • The Craob X is 7 mm thick, which would likely be the thinnest laptop ever sold.
  • The laptop uses a wireless charger and does not have any ports.

A company called Craob has a new idea for laptops. Rather than focusing on delivering a device that's practically as thin as a USB-C port, Craob decided to take things a step further. The Craob X lacks ports of any kind, including a wired charger. As a result, it's only 7 mm (0.27 in) thick. If the device ever sees the light of day, it could be the thinnest laptop ever sold.

The website for the Craob X claims that the laptop has up to a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Intel Iris Xe graphics, and up to 32GB of RAM. The laptop supports Wi-Fi 6E and comes with up to 2TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD storage. The display of the Craob X is a 13.3-inch 4K panel.

The most important specs, however, are the size and weight of the laptop. Craob claims the laptop is just 7 mm (0.27 in) thick and that it weighs only 861 g (1.9 lbs). That would make the Craob X thinner and lighter than the LG gram 14 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano.

While there aren't any physical ports on the Craob X, it supports a wireless charger that magnetically attaches to the back of the device. That charger has a USB-C port, USB-A port, an SD card slot, and a headphone jack.

It's unclear when, or if, the Craob X will ever ship. The site states that the device is coming soon but lacks pricing information or specifics about a release date. Craob is also an unknown company.

Regardless of if the Craob X is ever released, it raises a question about what people will sacrifice in the name of thinness. If people value thinness over all else, a more established brand such as Dell or Apple could ship a portless laptop. There have been rumors of a portless iPhone and iPad for years, so the idea has been floated around before.
