Interesting concept.

I'd have to use one to really assess how practical it is and I'd have to assume it's uber expensive.

It would seem like a pain in the ass to roll up and down...

No thanks, I'll take a simple latch any day.

Besides, what if you're at work looking at Asian women dressed up in schoolgirl uniforms and you need to close the laptop quickly because your boss is coming? Sure, you could [Windows Key + D], but still... :icon_biggrin:

It's a cool concept. It seems better for office presentations than home / personal use.
It does seem like it's a pain in the arse to use, and rolled up, it's thicker than 3 or 4 regular laptops.

What the frick? I never knew that!! Amazing!!!!!!!!!!! :bigthumbup:

Yeah, it comes in handy (especially when viewing content that's not safe for work) ;)

[Windows + D] to hide, [Windows + D] again to show.

Maybe I should start a "Windows Tip of the Week" on here.. You can do lots of cool things with Windows that most people probably aren't aware of.

Nah! Magnets or latches work better, and it's not like a laptop is a pain to lug around.
