Multiscreen setups are the norm these days for professionals, upping their productivity game by a notch, and the setup does look cool, to be honest. While we have seen dual-screen laptops in the past, UK-based Expanscape wants to up your laptop game to peak productivity with a multiscreen setup that folds into itself for portability. Honestly, what we see here will put even the most sought out multiscreen desktop setups to shame.
Meet the Aurora 7, a seven screen real estate space to expand your productivity, and that too with the promise of packing it up in an instant and carrying it to your living room or even to your pal’s place. The company is in its infancy stage and has created the Aurora 7 laptop prototype that it plans to sell to enthusiasts already – moving into the future. The company plans to have the commercial version ready as soon as possible. Speaking of the design and its form, the laptop looks more like a Swiss Army Knife of the PC world has a 17.3-inch main screen. Then three other 17.3-inch display panels swivel out – one in landscape orientation that sits above the main display and the other two on either side in portrait configuration. All of them have a resolution of 3840×2160, running at 60Hz.
If that’s not it, three more auxiliary displays have a 1920×1200 resolution that folds out to give you a massive workable space that you are sure to have nothing to complain about! The laptop runs on an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and is mated to an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. To handle all the required multiprocessing, the design includes a 64GB DDR4 memory and a multitude of drive options for storage bliss. To handle all the screens and the massive processing power required if a gamer wants to take it to the limit, Expanscape has loaded Aurora 7 with dual batteries – one an 82Whr and the other 148 Whr to keep the processing and the displays running full steam. According to them, the battery will last for around two hours twenty minutes under normal load conditions.
The only caveat being its weight. The Expanscape Aurora 7 laptop weighs 17 kilograms, which is not lightweight by any standards, but if you can live with that, it is one hell of a machine. A perfect laptop for people who need multiscreen setup while not sacrificing on the portability aspect – people like DevOps, SecOps, CyberSecurity and Day, Stock, Commodity Trader – Expanscape is targeting to be their potential customers. We hope that this transforming multiscreen laptop will make it to the production lines with a more commercially viable, lighter clean design and a reasonable price tag. What do you think? Will you fancy owning one of the metrics that are just right?
