ASUS demonstrates external laptop displays at IDF

ASUS Second Laptop Screen

The Intel Developer Forum is used not just as a showcase for new processors but also as a demonstration of future design concepts. A recent example of this has been ASUS' external laptop display, which has been previewed at earler IDF events but is now on display at the conference show floor in a prototype (pictured). Much as with the external display on a flip-phone, the external laptop display lets the owner check essential information without having to open the system itself. The current example gives access to e-mail, music, and other content on the system's internal hard drive that doesn't depend on using the full capability of the computer inside. Windows Vista is expected to eventually support this feature in all laptops.
