A laptop with a two screens - one on the inside and another on the outside of the lid - certainly came as a surprise to many buyers passing through the booth of Taiwanese PC manufacturer Asus at Asia’s biggest computer show Computex this week.
“It will be really convenient, especially when I travel, because I can use the notebook side for typing emails and the tablet side for watching movies,” said one of them.
And the dual screen could also be handy if “you want to show a friend something on your screen and she’s sitting across from you - you don’t have to turn your laptop around, the other screen can show the same thing or other content,” added Danny Huang, an Asus product manager.
Weighing only 1.2kg, the 17mm-thick device is one of a wide array of thin and lightweight laptops unveiled at Computex, offering touchscreen functions and other features aimed at taking back some market share from popular tablets.
