Here is a laptop that I really like. It has 2 flip screens that transform it from an ordinary 17 inch to a 26 inch with just couple of flicks. It folds into a regular size laptop and could fit into any laptop bag. Is it an atrocity that should never have been released upon this world? Or a creation of beauty and innovation that allows one to watch HD on a 26 inch screen on demand?

Discuss.

I bet it eats batteries like nobody's business. I think I'd like it more if I knew it had the capability of multi-screen display for video editing and etc. But it is rather pretty.

The design is beautiful but this is just dumb.

People who make 200grand a year in order to actually be able to afford this can probably tell what a great idea it is to have a laptop with multiple incredibly thin surfaces which open up to a 26" diagonal...Using it on the road is out. If you are in a car you better sit in the middle with no one else sitting on either side of you.

What is the point? Get a slightly better quality while you still get poor quality laptop sound and the distractions of the daily life? HD is great when you watch it with the proper sound and conditions, let alone the 26" display which isn't nearly big enough for anything impressive.

Also few people that have self respect would even consider using this with other people around.

Pretty interesting concept and could be quite useful. This looks like it has more potential than that 2 screen monstrocity Lenovo just came out with.

Lenovo could have given their dual-screen behemoth the same lines as a concept, and as a concept they could have given it antigravity generators to prevent the carrier from toppling over while transporting it


It's what it looks like in reality that will be actually interesting.

This makes no sense. I didn't see any pics of it with the sides folded in. If the sides need to be out like wings when you use even the small screen, then the whole concept of "lap-top" was missed by the designers. If it does have a compact mode, the pics do not show it.

As is, this is really a product that's stuck in the middle of two markets. People who need portable on-the-go computing will not be able to use something that occupies this much space. People who want a powerful computer with a large screen that takes up this much space are better off with a desktop.

totally agree with the desktop thing, just go for a Shuttle computer, so much better. they don't even give you any stats on the laptop.
there the flaps are folded in. but i think it just wont have everything the desktops provide performance wise. not to mention how heavy that thing must be, because i love carrying my 26" screen around.

I meant with the sides folded in while in use. It seems to me the sides have to flap outward to expose the keyboard.
