The machine, which includes a magnesium aluminum alloy body, tapers down to 0.16 inches at its slimmest edge and weighs 1.52 pounds. One panel is the display, while the other panel is a "halo" virtual backlit keyboard that allows users to draw and write on the panel and watch their images transferred to the display.
