ComputerWorld takes a look at the laptop of the future. Sadly all that seems to be considered in this article is the form factor and moving keyboards on-screen. The computers seem to be hamstrung with the same poor interaction paradigms that we’re dealing with today; inappropriate in a world where mobile computing is getting smaller and smaller.
“A lot has changed in the 20 years since the first laptop computers appeared, including gigahertz processors, color screens, optical drives and wireless data. However, one thing that has stubbornly stayed the same is the conventional clamshell format with its hinged display lid that opens to reveal a mechanical keyboard. That’s about to change. The rules of notebook design and the components that go inside are being rewritten to make the road a better place to work and play.”
