The Invisible OLED Laptop January 20, 2010

Posted by Alice Chen in : Check it out , 1 comment so far

In the FPS International 2009 exhibition, LG and Samsung showed off their transparent OLED display which could be used in notebooks, TVs and more.  This year, at the CES 2010 exhibition, a Samsung 14″ notebook was shown with a transparent display.  The notebook has  screen resolution of 960 x 540 and has level of transparency of about 40%.

The screen is only transparent until something is displayed on it, in which case, that area will no longer be transparent.  It is a very interesting concept that may be very useful in the future.

World’s Thinnest Laptop: Dell Adamo XPS January 20, 2010

Posted by Kyung Eun Park in : Check it out , add a comment

Last year Dell introduced the world’s thinnest laptop called Dell Adamo XPS. The laptop  is 9.99mm-thin, about half as thick as the MacBook Air. Computer companies are competing to produce a laptop that has a cool system such as a touch pad and also they try to design a laptop visually attractive. However, while I was looking at the articles and the reviews  about Dell Adamo XPS on the internet, I found negative comments  more than positive comments. Most people thought Dell was trying to copy Apple’s features. Personally, I likehow the keyboards are angled and the lightness of it. But Dell’s target consumers for this laptop were professional designers who could afford near $2000 for a laptop.
