Home » News » Windows 10 dual-screen laptops make keyboards obsolete

Things haven’t changed much in laptops since the ’80s and ’90s. They are indeed getting thinner and lighter, and even brighter but they have always worked with physical keyboards. At Computex 2018, major PC and gaming manufacturers unveiled their latest kits, and an overwhelming trend was noticed – systems with two screens instead of one.

Laptops will fit in your purse

Intel’s senior vice president of client computing, Gregory Bryant says that the next laptops will be totally changed from what we knew so far.

You’re going to see secondary displays, you’re going to see other [ways] of interacting with that [PC] platform [..] You’ll probably see foldable displays; you’ll see things that are bendable, you’ll see things that fit in your purse. One of the most obvious things you’ll see is things that don’t look like the traditional or legacy PC.

The best thing is that these new systems might reach the market by the end of the year, according to CNET.

Mini laptops with two screens will invade the market

At Computex, Asus was the first tech giant to show off dual-screen laptops which eliminate the keyboard in favor of two 4K displays. The ambitious project is called Project Precog. Lenovo also showed off a similar dual-screen Yoga Book which is the second generation of its laptop lineup.

Intel flaunted its Tiger Rapids dual-display prototype which looks less like a laptop and more like a notebook This device is powered by a 7th gen Core CPU and it’s running Windows 10. Even if this is only a prototype, Intel says that one of its partners is working on a similar design that will hit the market by the end of the year.
