Laptops are a dime a dozen and it’s hard for companies to truly stand out. However, at Computex 2019, we saw how ASUS attempted to break the mold with its ZenBook Pro Duo that comes with a 4K secondary screen built right above its keyboard. If you thought that was wild, Intel might have ASUS beat.
The company has taken the wraps off its new concept gaming laptop called Honeycomb Glacier. We’re not sure what’s with the name, although it does sound delicious, much like the laptop itself. As you can see in the video, Intel is certainly trying something very different where the laptop can be raised where it will have a main screen and a secondary screen sitting below it.
Unlike ASUS’ laptop, the obvious benefits to this design is that for starters, the main screen comes up to your eye level which makes it easier to see. The second display is also angled which means that looking at it will also be more comfortable compared to the ZenBook Pro Duo, where the secondary display is flat.
As we had said in the past, this is not the first time that a company has attempted to include multiple displays in a laptop. Several years ago, Razer showed off its Project Valerie concept which came with a triple display setup. Unfortunately, Intel’s Honeycomb Glacier is still a prototype/concept which means we probably shouldn’t expect to see it anytime soon.
