HP to Launch Laptops With Integrated Projectors

Digitimes cites Monty Wong, vice president and manager of personal computing systems group at HP Taiwan, who says the company has plans to launch both tablets and notebooks PCs with integrated mini projectors.

Miniature projectors placed prominently at CES in 2009 and in 2010 and it seems HP has finally figured out a way to market them to consumers. HP is said to be considering placing the projector on top of the notebook screen, where the webcam is normally located. While integrating a mini projector into a notebook might seem like the perfect way to sneak them into consumer's homes, Wong said the company first plans to launch several stand-alone mini-projector products as an introduction to the notebook-integrated designs.

According to Digitimes, the projector notebooks will be produced mainly by Quanta Computer.

    This could be very popular among teachers and businessmen.

    Maybe they'll put them in laptops with the swiveling displays?
