Prime Computer Launches PrimeBook Circular Modular Laptop

Prime Computer of Switzerland has launched a new laptop called the PrimeBook Circular, heralding the new laptop as being modular and “100% climate neutral.” The PrimeBook appears to have some quality build choices; its chassis, screen, input devices, and so on appear to be premium in nature. This is important as these aren’t upgradeable parts. However, the processor (Intel Tiger Lake), RAM, and Wi-Fi solution all live in an easily replaceable module that’s about the size of a 2.5 inch SSD.

You may feel there is something familiar about the PrimeBook Circular, and that is because it appears to be a Prime Computer-branded version of the Intel NUC P14E whitebook design. The specs of the host laptop match, as does the replaceable modularity. Though it isn’t mentioned in the press release or official product pages, the video below includes a short section that confirms the PrimeBook relies on Intel NUC 11 Compute Element modules. Moreover, the three PrimeBook SKUs align with three of the available NUC 11 Compute Element modules you can see in the Intel Ark.
