Mashable: Three Screens Are Better Than One

At CES 2017 Razer, the computer gaming company, announced a new laptop that would feature three 4k screens that fold out for a better gaming experience. We looked at this and thought of how it would be a great set up for any editor. More screen space is always better when it comes to editing, and even though this machine weighs a whopping 12 pounds it is an exciting prospect.

From Mashable:

There's only one thing I can always consistently look forward to at CES: Razer's crazy concept devices. This year's no different.

At CES 2017, the gaming brand announced Project Valerie, the world's first laptop with three built-in 4K displays that automatically deploy and retract into a "compact" 12-pound notebook design. 

It's absolutely nuts.

Why the hell would anyone want such a monstrosity? Its 1.5-inch thick aluminum design and hefty weight alone defeats all portability. For Razer, that's the wrong question. The right question is, why the hell not?

In building Project Valerie, the company sought to build the most minimal, most organized triple-screen computer available for the power user — whether that's a hardcore gamer who wants to have more pixels for widescreen gaming or the workaholic who needs more real estate for charts and spreadsheets and feeds.

In total, the three 17.3-inch IGZO screens with Nvidia G-Sync video technology provide 12K resolution. You won't find an all-in-one laptop with more pixels than Project Valerie

The computer's based off Razer's flagship Blade Pro laptop. And while the company isn't talking dirty specs (because it's just a concept device), we do know it's powered by a beastly Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, which is VR-ready. Going off the Blade Pro, we wouldn't be surprised if we found an Intel Core i7 and up to 32GB of RAM in Project Valerie.

And of course, the concept laptop comes with Razer's Chroma mechanical keyboard, which are configurable to light up in 16.8 million different colors, and support different custom profiles for apps and games. The two extra displays also have under-glow lighting.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
