We use our laptops every day to produce content, write reports, and complete school papers. Unlike our smartphones though, laptops weren’t able to keep up with the trend of colorful finishes. That’s why Avita wants to shake things up and introduce their own laptops that come in a number of colors.

The Avita Liber is the first model from the new laptop brand in the Philippines. They will be offering two versions of its Liber laptop.

The first one is a 14-inch variant that’s powered by a seventh-gen Intel Pentium processor paired with 4GB DDR3 memory and 128GB SSD. The display panel is already an IPS LCD with a Full HD resolution, plus it’s got plenty of ports including a USB-C, two full-sized USB 3.0, mini-HDMI, and a microSD card reader.

This Avita Liber’s base model is priced at PhP 19,990 which makes it an attractive choice for students.

For those who are not familiar with Avita, the consumer lifestyle brand has been around since 2016 and it originated in the USA from a former R&D and branding team of Radio Corporation of America, or simply known as RCA. The brand is now owned by Hong Kong-based Nexstgo Company Limited. Currently, the brand has designated service centers located in Metro Manila, Cebu, Davao.

Avita is available in neighboring countries like Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. You may visit Avita’s local website to know more about the young brand.
