Intel Shows Laptop With 4 Screens, LCD and OLED

It's IDF, which means that Intel will put on display some of its prototype ideas. While Intel itself doesn't create systems, it does have some design influence on how its technology is put together.

One of the more interesting ideas from Intel is the multi-screen laptop. While making a laptop with more than one display isn't a new concept (Lenovo's W700 or the gScreen), integrating four into one is a new mark. Of course, they're not all four full sized, but with one LCD and three auxiliary OLED, it's certainly neat.

What makes the Intel prototype even more interesting is that it features multitouch on all of its screens, allowing users to manipulate and move content from one screen to the next, as can be seen in the videos on CNet.

It may be cost prohibitive right now, but the possibilities for multitasking and very enticing.

    hmmmm im gonna be the first to say that they should put the screen on the outside of the main screen so you can operate your laptop with the lid closed, say like media player or something. OR introduce slide out OLED panels and have them act as extra monitors though smaller. The tiny 4x3 displays on the keyboard pretty much make it look like a space for more buttons rather than being actual screens. If wanna multi touch so bad why not introduce it into the trackpad? or better yet make a giant OLED trackpad that is around the size of Apple's and have that serve as the multi touch?
