Am I missing something?
Did I miss something. This seems useless, such a tiny expansion really would not be much use. I was expecting another FULL screen to slide out from the side and with the thickness of the main screen bezel it's quite pointless really. But maybe that's just me!
@AC - Why only one extra screen?
Well, you might have been getting a little carried away, but as I watched the vid I was waiting for him to pull one out of the other side as well.
I guess you could have had 2 x 8.5" or near enough, was my thinking.
Even so though, pretty cool! Looks very think though.
'Cause Lenovo's are shit. I've seen 3 of the very few we ever had in my shop fail for some reason or another.
Why only one extra screen?
Too true. Us lefties always get a bum deal.
Also, if they can add one screen to the right, why not another to the left? And a third to the top? Quad screen notebook anyone? I've found the more screens you have, the more you use. You'd lose an arm these days if you tried to take away my third monitor!
Trim down the surrounds and you could even go to six and have a portable video wall! Or am I just getting carried away now? :-)
The tablet is on the right isn't it? What use is that to me? I'd've mortgaged the cat otherwise.
