Computex 2008: ASUS Demos notebook with built-in projector

While touring the ASUS booth this morning I noticed a notebook on display that didn't have a name attached to it or a PR person assigned to guard it.  It was big, it looked new and at first glace had no outstanding features.  But there was one VERY interesting little addition seen upon further review...



Taking up a large portion of the top of the display was a small "mini projector" integrated to the chassis.  This creates a large portion of what most would called "wasted space" on the bezel above the LCD display but obviously a machine like this would have an incredibly niche audience that would be willing to ignore such facts. 

The projector itself rotates and swivels in order to tuck in well for closing the notebook lid.  I wasn't able to really see how well the projector worked - the room it was in was pretty bright.  We'll be scoping out some more details on this and the full array of notebooks and mini-notes on display at Computex later today!

To me, this is one of the greatest latest advancement in technology for one main reason: it converts your laptop from a self-ish took into a selfless tool for public sharing, teaching or lecture purposes.

For years, we could not share what we have in side our laptop or PC hard disk. If wanted to share them to a group, it must be paired by a separate Overhead Projector which cost is equivalent to another computer or laptop.

But with this latest integration of the projector into the laptop, we save much and so I say, "Job well done, friends!"
