Evaluation

This is the world’s first mobile PC with a folding display. This product’s innovative 13.3 inch display, which folds closed like a book, brings a new user experience to the world of mobile PCs, where the basic shape of displays and keyboards has remained fundamentally unchanged until now. The wireless keyboard slots neatly into a gap inside when the laptop is folded up and the device can also be used with the screen in its folded state. The leather cover on the back serves as a display stand when the device is open and slides back when it is folded up, giving the appearance of a leather-bound notebook. Thus, while tapping into the features of new gimmicks, it demonstrates a high level of performance in a natural form in every mode, without ever appearing eccentric for effect.
