Fascinating to far-fetched: 15 concept laptops

Fascinating and far-fetched PCs

Many of these concepts may never leave the drawing board or lab, but we can always dream...and in some cases, be thankful.

'VAIO Zoom'

We wonder if designer Eno Setiawan actually got Sony's attention with this concept incorporating 'holographic technology' for a design that's truly magical and revolutionary (with apologies to Apple's iPad).

Turned off, the glass display would be transparent; the keyboard, opaque. Power it up, and - voilà! - the Zoom's screen and keyboard appear.

This concept features a wireless charging system, too.

Asus Dual-Screen Portable
