General info

1.warranty period

2

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
2.thickness

369mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.weight

3kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.width

115mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.height

251mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

10651.18cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
