Asustek unveils netbook that unfolds to big-screen tablet

The company showed off a concept 47-inch LED TV and flexible screen wristwatch as well

Asustek Computer showed off its new 'wave' design concept in a few devices on Thursday at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), including a concept netbook that unfolds into a tablet PC and a 47-inch LED TV.

The netbook concept is to have dual 9-inch touchscreens on a netbook, with one where a keyboard is normally located and one as the display. The device has no physical keyboard, instead using the bottom touchscreen for input. The device can also be fully unfolded into one large tablet screen. An Asustek representative said the idea is to use OLED (organic light emitting diodes) technology for the screen and make it flexible. The design is a prototype and Asustek has no plans currently to take it to market.

Another flexible OLED screen device on display was a wristwatch that is simply a screen about 2-inches wide that wraps around your wrist with a watch on board and other interactive features.

The 47-inch LED TV sports speakers on either side that can slide in or out to save space. The three devices are made to work together. They are all prototypes.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
