Razer’s tri-screen mega lap­top

For­get the smart hair­brush. Dis­re­gard the va­porous elec­tric car. You can even walk past the lat­est TVs (though we have to con­cede, some are su­per­cool). Like the last few Con­sumer Elec­tronic Shows, CES 2017 has emerged as a fan­tas­tic pan­theon of PC hard­ware – from the lat­est cuttingedge sil­i­con, to wild lap­tops, to out­ra­geous desk­top ma­chines and cases. Here, you can see the gear that PC Ad­vi­sor’s CES foot sol­diers found most in­trigu­ing.

Razer’s lap­top fea­tures three 17in 4K G-Sync dis­plays, two of which au­to­mat­i­cally slide out from the main dis­play with the help of ro­bot arms. Project Va­lerie is still just a project – an R&D pro­to­type that may never ship. And maybe you wouldn’t ac­tu­ally want it. With about 370 square inches of dis­play pix­els to power, imag­ine the ma­chine’s brief bat­tery life.

Also con­sider the price, which would likely hit at least $5,000 (£TBC). And what hap­pens when you au­to­mat­i­cally ex­tend those dis­plays in a small, cramped space? Do they just snap off?

But, hey, what­ever. It’s pro­to­types like Project Va­lerie that make CES ex­cit­ing. This is why we come.
