In fact, Apple went even further by stating that 'such an approach may allow the computer system to be a desk-free computer,'" Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple. "There's no doubt that this has a certain Apple flair to it that could eventually lead us back to Revolutionary Road." Purcher reports, "Computer systems and methods disclosed in Apple's patent, according to Apple, may provide an entirely new category of computer systems as compared to desktops and laptops. Various embodiments contemplate using an integrated projector output as a primary visual output, as opposed to the conventional display screens involved with desktop and laptop computers. Such an approach may allow the computer system to be a 'desk-free computer,' by allowing the computer system to be placed wherever desired, on a desk or table, but also on a shelf, on a floor, or even suspended from a wall or ceiling."
