The most unusual laptops
When a gadget that is quite understandable in terms of its functionality and technical device, it starts to turn into some kind of multi-combine or a Swiss-type device - most likely they are trying to roll in technologies or just an advertising move.
Well, otherwise why from the usual mobile laptop to do this:
Acer Aspire R7 with a brave application to replace the touchpad touch screen.
This model owes its appearance to the fashion on equipping laptops with touch screens. At the same time, individual developers not only added a touch layer to the laptop, but also completely changed the shape and layout of the device, in order to make it as easy as possible for the user to control it by touching the screen. One of the most interesting options turned out the company Acer. This is the model Aspire R7, which, when closed, did not stand out in any particular way, although instead of loops it had a long extension, to which the screen was attached. The user had the opportunity to push him to him, slid on the keyboard. And it was located below the touchpad, which now had to reach, even if the display was pushed back to the maximum and did not close it from the user.This naturally displeased the conservative part of the buyers.
Acer Predator 21x, with the largest and besides, curved, screen.
Most often, laptop developers are experimenting with gaming category models. This is both an unusual design and technical solutions. That gaming laptops have become a kind of platform where ambiguous and unexpected innovations are checked for viability. After the production technology of the curved screen was mastered, sooner or later it had to be tested in the production of laptops. And this is implemented in the Acer Predator 21x gaming model, equipped with two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 video adapters and a high-performance mobile processor Core i7-7820HK from Intel. The length of the curved screen diagonal was 21 inches. But the developers have implemented in this model and other their original ideas. For example, located to the right of the keyboard, take out the touch-pad, which, if turned over and inserted into place turned into a digital block. And above the keyboard, part of the case is made transparent. Through it, the user can observe the operation of one of the cooling fans, which also received a special backlight.
ASUS ROG GX800 is the most stationary laptop.
It would seem that after the “Predator” it would be difficult to surprise us with something, but ASUS succeeded. She released a gaming laptop with a special suitcase for transportation and a separate external liquid cooling unit that can be connected to the laptop (and disconnected from it) without rebooting the OS. Only with an attached cooling unit, both NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 video adapters with an Intel core i7-7820HK processor can develop maximum performance. And the screen of this model is quite normal for gaming laptops. The diagonal is 18.4 inches.
Lenovo Yoga Book where the usual keyboard is replaced by touch
Yes, the field for experimentation sometimes becomes not large gaming laptops, but compact models. So, recently, Lenovo has created such a small laptop that for a standard mechanical keyboard, even in a truncated form, there was absolutely not enough space. The developers found the way out by replacing the mechanical keyboard with the touch one. However, users have long known that typing on such a keyboard, where there is no physical distinction between different keys, is extremely inconvenient. To compensate for this shortcoming, the option of drawing on the keyboard with an electronic pencil is added.
MSI GT83VR 6RE Titan SLI - mechanical keys and two video adapters
Specializing in the production of gaming laptops, MSI also released a non-standard, though not as original as the above-presented laptops, model. Moreover, her experiment on combining two GTX 980M cards with a mechanical keyboard, which has the usual key depth for a user, turned out to be successful. Now the next generation of gaming laptops from MSI with a conventional mechanical keyboard and updated hardware has been released.
At CES 2017, which took place from January 5 to January 8, 2017 in Las Vegas, Razer presented its new development - a concept laptop, tentatively called Project Valerie. According to the manufacturer, this is the first laptop in the world with three built-in displays. Note that earlier attempts were made to release something similar with two displays, for example, a Lenovo ThinkPad W700 Dual Screen with a side auxiliary display or a GScreen SpaceBook with two full displays and those remaining at the prototype stage.
