Getting it done – Productivity with Purpose
To be the thinnest would be to sacrifice certain features, to be built with a purpose would mean to have the perfect balance of everything. Ensuring all the right ports are available within the perfectly sized portable thin and light computer. A delightful screen, functional keyboard, efficient trackpad wrapped in a beautifully crafted metal housing.
All Day Long – Now even longer battery life
To be the lightest for the sake of being the lightest would be to make a compromise on battery life. In order to have an incredible 10-12 hour optimal working battery life with a maximum of 18 hours* battery life would mean to be designed for the purpose of working all day long and beyond. Past 8 hours, the commute to and from, the in between and the afterhours are all part of being all day long. Sustainability and a long service life is paramount in the design of the BlackBook Zero and this is why the battery is serviceable and removable via the accessible bottom plate. This is the perfectly balanced thin and light Ultrabook, without compromise.
Touching Keyboard – Right key height, right key sound, right key feel
If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. The newly designed, precisely backlit keyboard is built on an age proven switch system that provides the perfect key height, with a reassuring soft sound and crisp responsive feel. The BlackBook Zero system design has allowed for the use of a better keyboard that is not too flat in height and has multiple illumination settings. Getting it done all day long on the perfect keyboard is after all what a clamshell notebook computer was originally designed for.
Tactful Trackpad – Real movement
Nothing can imitate the feeling of real movement. The downward motion accompanied with a click is both reassuring and certain. The new perfectly constructed Trackpad in the new BlackBook Zero provides the same familiar downward movement with the correct feedback which is what you’re accustomed to. A non-artificial trackpad you can feel is the extension to your fingertips allowing you to correctly perform certain tasks.
All the Ports you need – No Dongles
The BlackBook Zero 14 has all the ports and connectivity options you need for all your devices from the past, for the present as well as for the future. You’re old devices and new devices can now harmoniously work together with the best balance of multiple USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, type C, micro HDMI, Micro SD and 3.5mm headphone ports. You no longer have to choose either or.
Twice the power – Power adaptors for both Home & Away
2 X Micro Power Adaptors + 2 X Power cords included as standard, one for home and one for the office. With the added portability, extended battery life and now including two power supplies, you will never run out of power. We realise that your portable computer needs to be used everywhere all the time and we have provided each and every Venom BlackBook Zero 14 with two power adaptors minimising the need to ever have to carry an additional power supply with you.
Faster and more powerful than ever – CPU – GPU
Inside is the all new 7th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processor, consuming a mere 4.5 Watts of power while up to 18% faster than its 6th generation counterpart. The 7th Gen engines gives a real boost to the graphics engine now with native 4K support, create, convert and use 4K videos in way you never could. You can now transcode a 1 hour 4K video in just 12 minutes. Efficiency with playback is apparent with a 57% boost in battery life with 4K video playback over the 6th Gen processor. Intel’s Turbo Boost 2.0 technology is a feature that manages both processor performance and power so that tasks get more processing power when they need it on demand. The all new Hyper-Threading Technology helps the CPU complete tasks faster by delivering two processing threads for each core. 7th Gen Core chips also include Speed Shift technology, which allows for the processor to quickly settle on its best operating frequency, thus optimizing performance and efficiency. Short bursts of activity such as browsing the web are now even faster. The age of portable computing has never been better with the new BlackBook Zero 14.
Midnight Silence – Quietly mesmerising
Fanless architecture in the Venom BlackBook Zero 14 is the first BlackBook to be without a fan. The new 7th generation Intel Core M processor only draws 4.5 watts of power which consumes up to 10 X less power than other Intel Core CPU’s used in notebooks. This extremely efficient low power consumption means there is less heat generated therefore no fan or heat pipe is required. The cooling system works via a passively cooled thermal design that allows for a thinner base height of just 14 mm/.55” at its highest point, in addition to a near silent operation. Now you can enjoy performance in a thin, silent design.
Solid Stealth Black – Constructed from Premium materials, assembled artfully
The Venom BlackBook Zero 14 is manufactured from a UniBody, Aluminium metal composite casing wrapped in stealth metallic black. Its heat dissipating properties, artful look and solid reassuring feel are what make the BlackBook Zero 14 what it is. The added light weight yet strong attributes ensure that the mobile warrior is always ready to compute on the go weighing in at just 1.4kgs/3lbs.
Black will always be the new black
“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: ‘I don’t bother you – don’t bother me.” Yohji Yamamoto
Brighter, vivid, crisp display – perfectly sized screen
A thinner, lighter purposeful design also enables for the perfectly sized screen. Large screens provide comfort, small screens provide convenience, and the perfect screen size in a thin and light notebook is now a reality at 14.1 inches. Now you can be both mobile and productive. The panel on the Venom BlackBook Zero 14 provides the right colour saturation and vivid contrast in a 1920 X 1080 resolution no reflective screen. The black levels are rich and deep with stunning brightness levels. The active matrix IPS TFT LCD first developed by Hitachi in 1996 has come a long way, now with even wider colour gamut and greater viewing angles provide a much better aesthetic with superior results. The BlackBook Zero 14 has the perfectly calibrated 14.1 inch non reflective IPS screen for high gamut, rich colour contrast, wide viewing angles with the perfect resolution for a portable clamshell notebook.
