Intel Shows Laptop With 4 Screens, LCD and OLED
Extreme multitasking with extreme laptop touching!
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.
