Best tech coming in 2017
WILD, WEIRD, AND POWERFUL HARDWARE.
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.
