100 Incredible Laptops

From Tablets With Handles to Sightless Literary Devices

— May 5, 2012 — Tech
These incredible laptop designs have ushered in a new era of technological genius. Brand managers, engineers and designers have identified groundbreaking ways for users to interact with digital displays. Many of these ventures have been practical, catering to the needs of the blind or the on-the-go businessperson. In whichever case, novel concepts have been applied here, challenging companies like Apple and Microsoft to consistently update data frameworks.

Portable tablets with handles and sightless literary devices have altered the way consumers make laptop purchases. The standard keyboard, screen and hard drive features have been entirely reassessed with a mind for creativity. The architects behind such projects have opted for the unusual at every turn, straying away from all that has been done in the past, the result of which has been some remarkable trailblazing products.
