The left and right borders are only 4.4mm, and the screen ratio is 88%. At the same time, the design of the narrow bezel improves the visual effect while keeping the size of the body unchanged. In addition, the 3:2 aspect ratio is used. In common office software, this ratio allows the office content to be maximized. This notebook has an eye protection technology to alleviate visual fatigue by filtering some harmful blue light. The latter is provided with technical guidance by the National Eye Diagnostic and Therapeutic Engineering Technology Research Center.
