Asustek takes a cue from cellphones, showing off this concept laptop with a secondary display on the outside, letting you give get a quick peek at your e-mail, check your schedule or see what's playing on the MP3 player without having to open it up. Just think of it: now you can check your e-mail on your laptop while it rides the conveyor belt through those impregnable security scanners that are protecting us from the terrorists.
Asus tech showed the notebook at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, and that they're not the only ones—Acer and Mitac Technologies are also reportedly jumping on the secondary display notebook bandwagon. If the big boys take notice, this could become a standard feature in the near future.
