Once again, Razer is coming to CES with a unique and impressive laptop prototype, a.ka. Project Linda, a laptop body made specifically for its very own smartphone, the Razer phone, launched 2 months ago. Last year, the Taiwanese brand made a splash at CES with Project Valerie, a retractable tri-monitor laptop, a prototype that was stolen and spotted later on a online store in China.

Project Linda is a 13.3-inch laptop with a Quad HD display and no processor inside, that docks the Razer phone inside its chassis where a touchpad would be located. The smartphone powers the device with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset.
