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.

Compenion

This sleek and slim concept from designer Felix Schmidberger features two OLED touchscreens, one of which slides under the other for easy portability.

The second display could serve as a soft keyboard or a digital writing pad.

The Compenion comes with additional docking stations, including a home unit that allows the laptop to function as an entertainment center.

Valentine

Long live the carriage return! Well, almost.

The clever folks at CreativeDNAaustria have designed a nostalgic laptop that pays tribute to Olivetti's renowned 'Valentine' portable typewriter.

The flexible display and slide-out keyboard extend from a bright-red base; the overall effect is decidedly dated in a fun, "emotionally appealing" way, the designers say.
