Digitimes reports that Acer is working on a frameless laptop that will use the back of the panel's glass substrate as the cover for the notebook. Citing "sources from notebook players," Digitimes says the super-slim laptop will also feature a touch keyboard, as opposed to a traditional, tactile touch keyboard.
Digitimes sources say Acer will adopt Corning's reinforced glass substrate, print color on the back and use the substrate like a notebook cover for a frameless design. The move will make for an ultra-slim design and will also reduce cost of materials.
The laptop is said to be launching in the second half of this year.
