    ha it's easy to think of these designs but c'mon, this is just not feasible even within the next 5 years IMO.

    NIIIIIICE! Excellent design, but it's way in the future, like the other poster said.
    Couldn't see it for 5-10 years, but impressive.

    It's the "roll" laptop concept (aka vaporware).

    There is a previous thread on this.

    Why did they give that guy guy a "sassy" walk?

    Who would want to look like a female carrying a purse around as a laptop? :confused:

    :p good point, why not just create a sleeve and carry it in your hand like a mailing tube...or obviously put it in your pack or bag if you have one as it would take up considerably less room than the current laptops.

    I would scrap the man purse and go with something more like this (obviously on a smaller scale in terms of tube/sleeve length):

    Nice design, but the space saved of the roll-up vs a standard laptop is minimal.

    And the touchscreen keyboard without and tactile response isn't going to work for any serious extended use.

    I see a lot of people say this, but is there any evidence that a touchscreen keyboard would be unsuitable for extended use? I'm not trolling, genuinely interested as to why you need tactile feedback for extended use.

    I know the 'feel' of a keyboard is important to whether it's a good keyboard or not and I know it often takes me a day or so to become accustomed to a keyboard, and not just because of subtle variations in the layout.

    Though, is it not just a matter of becoming used to the tactile feedback (or lack thereof) on a touchscreen keyboard?
