It’s selling points are a reduction in weight by 10%, a reduction in power consumption by 8%, and a new matte finish on the system’s HDD bay cover. It will be available in Jet Black or Glacier White and will begin to roll out worldwide after its Japanese launch, eventually making its way to North America.
