Intel reveals LCD TV laptop concept

Not yet being developed as a product

Intel today revealed a laptop PC concept design in which the machine folds up with the screen facing away from the keypad and then slips into a docking station for use as an LCD (liquid crystal display) TV.

The docking station looks like a stand for an LCD TV and includes speakers on either side of the screen. Once the laptop is put in place, it transforms from a laptop PC into a television. Officials at the IDF (Intel Developer Forum) in Taipei said the design is not currently being developed as a product as it's only a concept aimed at generating new ideas.

The device is meant to save space and allow a user to save on the cost of buying both an LCD TV and a laptop computer.

Another Intel concept laptop design contained an extra part on the back of the screen, similar to a computer monitor stand, to hold the screen up higher than the laptop. The stand part could also be manipulated to allow a user to fold the screen over the keypad and watch movies comfortably on an airplane or in any other confined space.
