Concept PCs are a lot like concept vehicles. The intuition comes from a respectable fairly neighbourhood, but principally they exist to offset you feel bad an imperfect about your current dumb device. It’s a analogy for life, really.
In that flavour, here are a trio of hypothesi PCs that Dell debuted this week at Ce. Frankly , none are too farfetched. One gapes an dreaded pile like an existing product, and the other two are pretty reminiscent of recently announced commodities from challengers. Any of the three could seemingly have been announced as actual retail manoeuvres, but life is an endless stream increasing mortification culminating in your inescapable, inescapable demise.
First up is the Alienware-branded UFO. Remember a section ago when I told you that one of the products looked like an existing one? Well, this is that. It’s Alienware’s take on the Nintendo Switch( or any gaming portable, to be honest ). Though one assumes that, were it ever to actually come to market, it would feature much beefier specs. One presupposes.
Like the Switch, the gaming portable pieces detachable controllers( tone familiar ?) and kickstand, so you are able to, say, play it on an airplane tray table( lick it down first, though. Those things are the germiest part of the plane ). There’s a 10 th gen Intel chip inside this hypothetical product, powering an eight-inch, 1900 x1200 display.
Concept Duet, meanwhile, is the sort of idea a number of PC makes ought to have flirting with for a while. It’s a standard laptop form factor, simply with a 13.4 inch display on either side. The the potential benefits of such a flesh factor are pretty clear, and like the Lenovo, there appears to be a slip-on keyboard, so you don’t have to type on a touchscreen. The Concept Ori is in-line with the actual ThinkPad X1 Fold announced earlier today by Lenovo. It’s a 13 inch screen that folds in for a significantly more portable use factor.
“I’m excited about our new approaching this year at Ce, and we hope you enjoy this peek into our laboratories, ” CTO Glen Robson says in a blog berth. “This is only a small fraction of the ideas, know-hows, hardware and software our crews are constantly developing. Who knows, if response is positive, you may picture more of our early work in the future.”
