N Series Make-over: New N Series with NCVM for Style and Resilience

NCVM is a vapor metallization film that provides a decorative sheen to the notebook and, being of non-conductive nature, can also avoid the interference of radio frequency (RF) signals such as Wi-Fi compared to other metallization methods such as aluminum. It also protects the notebook as NCVM is not only corrosion resistant, it also stands up to the knocks and bumps of day-to-day computing while on the move. As a result, users can enjoy worry-free computing, while enjoying a notebook that provides style and sophistication through natural NCVM colors such as bright aluminum, darkened chrome or a brushed metal effect.
