Intel NUC P14E Laptop Element features Intel NUC 11 Compute Element

Intel NUC P14E Laptop Element is a 13-9-inch modular laptop equipped with the same Intel NUC 11 Compute Element found in the Intel NUC 11 Enthusiast Phantom Canyon NUC11PHKi7C.

The NUC 11 Compute Element “Elk Bay” is a U-Series Compute Element (95 x 65 x 6 mm) offered with a choice of Tiger Lake processors ranging from an Intel Celeron 6305 chip to a Core i7-1185G7 processor combined with up to 16GB RAM.  The card also includes a WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 module, a Gigabit Ethernet transceiver, and supports PCIe x4 Gen 3 and Thunderbolt 4.

Intel NUC Laptop NUC 11 Compute ElementIntel only mentions Windows 10 in the “list” of supported operating systems, but Ian’s tested Linux on the Intel NUC 11 Enthusiast Phantom Canyon successfully earlier this year.  Both NUC Software Studio and NUC Audio Studio programs can be used with the laptop.

The solution should enable users to switch to another Compute Element either to upgrade the processor or replace a broken card. If Intel does not kill the Compute Element family altogether, as they did for the Compute Card, you may even be able to upgrade to a module with a 12th generation processor once they come out.

More details may be found on Intel’s NUC laptop kits page and a product brief.

So yeah, Intel killed the Compute Card, but the Compute Element will totally survive.

I guess if there were an aftermarket for second hand compute elements.

e.g. today I buy the base Celeron element for home, while a business user buys the fully specced Core i7. In 2-3 years time, he writes it off as depreciation and buys a new compute element. I upgrade with that 2nd hand element at a massive discount.

There is also a reverse possibility – if you smash the screen or otherwise damage the shell/dock/whatever this is, your compute element is still there.

I hade real hopes in compute card/element. It’s the only way to cut down e-waste. I really wish OEMs would embrace it..

I agree but it’s as much unlikely as you don’t see socketted CPUs anymore in laptops. Even RAM is often soldered to make sure you can’t upgrade it. There’s too much money to make by selling a full-blown device with storage and screen when the user only wanted a RAM expansion. There’s no mystery, laptop prices were divided by 10-20 in 20 years, thanks to fierce competition. If we want to be able to get some at such low prices, vendors have to figure ways to force you to buy more often 🙁 In the end we’re always the ones… Read more »

> Even RAM is often soldered to make sure you can’t upgrade it Do you have a source for LPDDR4 or even LPDDR4x SO-DIMMs? Exactly, me neither. There exist a lot of reasons for soldered components in laptops other than preventing upgradability. These days we’re gradually replacing MacBooks from 2012 with recent M1 thingies. Some of them received a new battery, none of them got CPU or RAM upgrades for obvious reasons: both CPU and DDR3L chips are soldered. And users are/were fine with them since for their use cases they were all the time ‘fast enough’. Now the M1… Read more »

That would not be a laptop but a massive brick. The height is 16.55 mm according to Intel’s product brief which (judging by the picture) seems to be not true or at least not the height of the whole thing measured with lid closed.

Thicker because from the photo, the module is enclosed within a piece of metal acting as a passive heatsink – versus a traditional fan-cooled laptop.
