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 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.
