Although the company is best known for churning out custom-built PCs for various clients, it seems the team at Dreamcore intends to start churning out their own notebooks as well. The first member of their product family is the Dreambook Touch 15 - a sleek, ultraportable notebook that clocks a mere 1.68kg on the scales.

Developed collaboratively with input from Intel (specifically, their NUC Whitebook concept), the Touch 15 contains a pretty attractive spread of features, including an aluminium unibody frame and a 15.6" Full HD IPS touchscreen with a 100% sRGB colour gamut and 450 nits brightness, just to name a few on the outside. However, it doesn't compromise on power and performance despite its diminutive size.

The chip running the show on this notebook is the latest 11th Gen Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 processor, and it's further backed up by 16GB of LPDDR4X memory and PCIe 4.0 SSD storage speeds. This internal package comes together to deliver surprising degrees of output, making the Touch 15 a great option for both casual and professional uses. And if you're worried about ports, there's no need to be - the laptop features a full-sized HDMI port as well as a duo of USB Type-A ports, which should be plenty for a mouse, external monitor and even a keyboard if need be.

As for battery life, Dreamcore claims an 18-hour battery life via its high-capacity 73Wh battery. In fact, even if the battery starts to dip below 20%, all you'll need is a mere 1.5 hours of charging to get the Touch 15 back up to 90%.This combination pairs quite nicely with the laptop's sleek form factor and aforementioned 1.68kg weight, making it an absolute breeze to carry around without having to worry about keeping it charged all the time.

Naturally, with all of these specs in mind, the next logical question would be regarding the Touch 15's price tag and availability, and we've got some good news for you. To commemorate this new addition to their family, Dreambook is planning to sweeten the deal with several special early bird gift bundles. From now till 19 July, customers who purchase a Touch 15 notebook (starting at S$1,895 on Lazada and the official Dreambook website) will qualify for the following bundles.

Those who favour mobility and opt for the smaller 512GB Samsung SSD 980 option can enjoy the "On The Go" bundle, which is worth S$185 and contains a Logitech Pebble M350 mouse, a MOFT sleeve and an external WD 1TB HDD.

Meanwhile, those who intend to use it primarily at home can opt for one of the five "Work From Home" gift bundle variants. The most valuable one of them is worth a whopping S$935 and can be acquired with the purchase of a Dreambook Touch 15 with a 2TB Dreamcore Hyperion Pro PCIe 4.0 option - this bundle contains a 34-inch SuperSolid CG340R curved monitor, a Dreamtype DT-001 mechanical keyboard or a SuperSolid Gemini One mouse, which is quite an impressive deal, if you ask me.
