The demand in FSI FIIO: 2013140981/062522 from 06.09.2013 Laptop-Monitor
The idea of this invention is to install screens on the exterior parts of the laptop: on the cover and on the bottom. Upon opening the proposed device, further referred as “Device”, at a 180? angle, the outer screens would combine into one big screen.
The drawback of the existing portable personal laptops and netbooks, further referred as “Laptop”, is that its both exterior surfaces have no use except for displaying the manufacturer’s logo on the cover and situating a vent grate for cooling system on the bottom.
The technical purpose of the invention is to use the “Device” under stationary conditions, with a mouse and a keyboard connected to it, as a monitor-all-in-one unit with a big screen surface.
Upon placing the “Device”, opened at a 180? angle, on the desk stand, facing the user with its exterior side, a mouse and a keyboard plugged in, it would become a fully functional monitor – all-in-one unit with inputs for various ports, a Card Reader and an optical disc drive.
Today they have developed flexible sensor screens that, when in use, don’t have a problem of image “joining” in the area of the attachment of two exterior screens. There would be only one exterior screen folding in the middle, where the hinges are located.
If we want to exclude an optical disc drive from the “Device” in order to lessen its weight and reduce its price, it would be possible to use an attachable disc drive.
The Formula of the invention
Personal folding computer with a built-in keyboard and an interior screen, with two screens on both exterior surfaces that, upon opening at a 180? angle, combine into one big screen.
The “Device” could be supplied with many functions, from an access by a fingerprint to a fax-modem. It is not crucially important if the “Device” lacks certain functions.
A thing to be considered is that it would be impossible to place inputs for ports, a Card Reader and an optical disc drive from one side of the “Device”, because upon using it as a monitor- all-in-one unit and opening it at a 180? angle, there would be both no access to inputs and no space for disc ejection from the bottom.
Modern flexible sensor screens are not protected from scratches but in the future this problem may be solved, and upon using the “Device” it would become a fully functional personal computer-tablet.
The type of a mouse situated on the interior bottom part next to the keyboard could be of any brand; today the most popular one is Touchpad.
