Let’s face it right away, without unnecessarily turning around: the designers of the new Nokia-branded notebook seem to have taken inspiration here and there from Apple’s older and more current MacBooks – and the first to come to mind is MacBook Pro with M1 Pro / Max a which, apart from the notch, it looks a lot (here the review) .
And if the images of Nokia PureBook Pro when closed may not suggest who knows what combination, just look at the photos in which it is in profile or rather those in which it is immortalized, open, from above, with the keyboard in plain sight, which perhaps represents the clearest “homage” to MacBooks.
In any case, the designers put their effort into harmonizing everything , because unlike laptops with the Apple on the back, the look is markedly nice but at the same time discreet: it will be for the four different colors or for the alternation between soft and angular lines. , Nokia’s PureBook Pros convey a feeling of balance, of successful operation.
The men of OFF Global, a French company founded in 2020 which obtained a license from HMD to design and sell Nokia-branded laptops in 22 countries (including Italy) , hope so . Nokia PureBook Pro is declined in the most classic of the variants, from 15 and 17 inches , and both have the aluminum cover in four color variants that embellishes a construction that however seems to foresee a wide use of plastic, probably with the aim of containing the production costs and therefore the list price.
