Aftershock's Lunar 14 Pro is an ultrabook with 24-hour battery life

Aftershock Lunar 14 Pro

Aftershock has launched its Lunar 14 Pro ultrabook, the latest addition to its line of productivity-oriented ultraportables. The company launched the Lunar 14 back in June, and the Lunar 14 Pro builds on that with longer battery life, USB-C charging, and a more robust design with MIL-STD-810G certification. 

The notebook is also really light, weighing just 1.06kg, thanks in part to its magnesium-aluminum alloy cover. It pairs that with slim bezels on all three sides and a sleek, minimalist design, so I can see this appealing to professionals who need a long-lasting laptop for the road. 

Here's an overview of its specifications:

  • 14-inch 1,920 x 1,080-pixel IPS display
  • Intel Core i7-10510U (1.80GHz, 8MB L3 cache)
  • 16GB DDR4-2666 dual-channel memory
  • 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD
  • 73Wh battery
  • 322 x 216.8 x 16.5mm
  • 1.06kg

The above will cost you S$1,744, a pretty attractive price in typical Aftershock fashion.

The 73Wh battery is rather large for an ultrabook, and the company is claiming up to 24 hours of battery life on a full charge. In addition, its fast-charging capabilities mean that it can supposedly squeeze out 16.5 hours of use after just 80 minutes of charging. 

That aside, it's worth pointing out that the processor isn't actually a 10nm Ice Lake chip. Instead, it's a quad-core Comet Lake part and is based on 14nm lithography.

Elsewhere, the Lunar 14 Pro also supports Windows Hello facial recognition, so you can log in using just your face via the infrared camera. There's support for the new Wi-Fi 6 standard too, so it'll be able to take advantage of the latest routers

Finally, you'll be able to customise the Lunar 14 Pro with a range of automobile paints and vinyl car wraps, should you want to really make it your own.
