Design and Display
The budget laptop sports a slim and lightweight design, which should ordinarily be expected of a notebook its size. Micromax Canvas Lapbook L1161 measures approximately 1.9 millimetres in thickness and 1.3 kilograms in weight.
The choice of plastic material for its chassis is not particularly surprising. The small notebook features an 11.6-inch diagonal display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The IPS panel should offer decent viewing.
Power and Performance
The Canvas Lapbook will be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F processor clocked at 1.33 GHz (up to 1.83 GHz in Burst mode). The CPU is paired with 2 GB of DDR3 RAM. With this configuration, you should only expect to enjoy using the notebook for basic tasks such as typing, browsing and watching movies in standard format.
