The 14-inch XE laptop is fast, energy efficient, and ultra-portable. Blaze through big jobs and many open apps with its excellent per-core performance and large high-speed memory capacity. Like all Focus systems, the XE saves you time every day with hardware optimizations, curated apps, Focus Tools, HOWTOs designed for your system, and unmatched Linux-first support. Call us at the number at the bottom of this page to learn more.
The XE features the 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 Tiger Lake-UP3 processor in its most powerful 28 W configuration. This 4-core, 8-thread CPU has a base frequency of 2.4 GHz and a maximum turbo boot of 4.2 GHz.
Apps load and run noticeably faster thanks to outstanding single-threaded performance and 3200 MHz RAM, while the high-efficiency 10 nm SuperFin process results in up to 8 hours of typical battery life.
Iris Xe graphics are up to 3x faster than the prior-generation Intel integrated graphics. Performance is excellent for development, DevOps, most content creation, and - with modest quality settings - even lighter games like Dota 2, CS:GO, or Minecraft. Best GPU performance requires a minimum of 16 GB dual-channel RAM.
If you need ultimate GPU capabilities for visualization, deep learning, or games, we recommend the Focus M2. However, if your GPU needs are more modest, you should be very pleased with the XE.
The XE gets things done without drama or dongles. Communicate using the latest protocols. Connect to almost any peripheral or camera card. Enjoy a large, centered clickpad with a durable and responsive keyboard.
Whether you’re at home, at work, or on the road, connect the way you want using the latest Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth technologies. Communicating has never been faster or easier.
The Thunderbolt 4 port allows one to use high bandwidth peripherals that were previously impossible on a laptop. For example, add an eGPU enclosure to run deep learning or rendering tasks on an external GPU.
The Focus XE provides all the high-speed ports you need without expensive dongles or docks. Connect up to 3 external 4K displays at once. Use a full Gigabit Ethernet port for simplicity or when you need the ultimate connection speed and reliability. Read camera cards and plug in your headset without drama.
Backlight your keys at 6 levels of intensity. Type quickly and accurately with reliable scissor mechanism with 4 mm of travel. Use 2 and 3-finger gestures on the spacious clickpad to tap, scroll, and coast effortlessly through documents.
We try to provide all the details you need to decide if the XE is right for you. If you have any questions, please call 844-536-2871 or write TellMeMore@kfocus.org.
