It may sound like sheer insanity, but it's the right sort of crazy sauce if you ask us. ASUS is planning to make its Fold / Unfold laptop concept into a for-reals product this year, with plans to ship by Q3. That seems pretty accelerated for something we've only seen in concept form, and something with such a new and interesting form factor -- Fold / Unfold's keyboard slides backwards as you open the display to maximize room for keys, trackpad and palm rest (video of the "folding" action is after the break). The concepts we've seen have also been suspiciously thin, so hopefully ASUS can pull this off without compromising this delicious form factor too terribly much. Sadly, that dual-touchscreen concept is further out, there's currently no slated window for commercialization.

The origami concept. she lives! it looks pretty cool, then again there's no information on the power they'll put in these things.

Unless they put some fancy hardware in there, its most likely going to be just like any other OEM pc (hp, dell). Overpriced for the product it really is.

On the other hand, from a cosmetic point of view, it doesnt get much better than that. Eat your heart out apple.

thats the one problem, these concepts look to flimsy,

"hey jimmy we gotta go, we're gonna be late!" .. ''ohh okay let me just close my lapto......snap."
