So Asus won right?

5" full HD screen as your trackpad, acts as a full second display inside windows

So you can have videos there or a chat window. There is also some dedicated UI's for spotify, calculator etc

>made even more shitty to accommodate a display
wow, can't wait. Have any vendors besides Apple actually put some effort into the trackpad yet? It's disgraceful how bad some of them are.
>>
>>66345270
Pretty sure it has a 4k main screen and a 1080p tracked display. So it shouldn't have a problem with resolution scaling.
>>
Nice gimmick, but since it's the only model that supports it, nobody will probably take it seriously with software support and it will become useless.

Also that keyboard is truly macbook tier.
>>
>a Windows OEM trying to do anything creative

Is that a joke? What's the point if you can't even control the OS?

>So you can have videos there or a chat window

Lmao what the fuck? Staring at your trackpad, on a LAPTOP? Are you disabled?
>>
the other concept was more cooler but retarded

2 displays top and bottom

was kinda cool cus you had floating windows below near your on screen kb but lots of issues to work out

If it’s pressure sensitive and takes Apple Pencil support, with that big of a trackpad size that they debuted on the new MBPs, it would be the best move Apple ever made for their laptop line.

it could finally get rid of that abomination of a touch bar too
>>
>>66345102
The idea of having a second smaller screen is fantastic and I've wanted it for a long while but putting it in place of the trackpad is weird.
>>
>>66345580
The ONLY ones that even come close are the glass touchpads on HP's 2nd/3rd gen EliteBooks (2560p, 8570p etc).

It's looks cool and convenient until you think about the implications of having this shit on your pad.

Technology has a setting trend: Appeal to lazy bastards. Not all advances are pragmatic in nature.

OK, and why would I watch a vid on that tiny screen, when I have a fuckhuge screen just above?
And chat window? Great. how do you chat with either not using your keyboard, because your hands are obsfukating your scrren otherwise, or without reading the others msgs, because you can't see your screen because of your hands.

Sure, its a fun idea and I wouldn't really mind having this second screen, but I sure as hell would not use this as a qualifier to chose this machine over another one.
Especially, since it'll probably will have shitty to no linux support.
Also, no clit, do deal.

They get paid by the malware vendors to install Windows, so you get it cheaper that way.

This would be ok if it had a trackpoint clito but it doesn't.

Useless technology.

This is actually the cool part. It's just a display, no gimmicks, so you can use it like a second monitor.

I am going to buy a new laptop. /g/
Currently have an Asus F302la, (i5 5200u 2 core 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, 1366x758, no SSD)
Am looking to upgrade to ASUS ZenBook UX430UN (i5 8250U, Nvidia MX150, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD.) Price is ~$1600 AUD
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Brands that I like: ASUS, Gigabyte, Lenovo, Dell
Brands I'd like to avoid: Toshiba, HP, Acer
>>
>>66348638
dell xps 13 if you can stretch the budget
>>
>>66348638
Honestly like the other guy said, the XPS 13. It's a great machine.
>>
>>66348638

Just buy a ThinkPad already.
>>
>>66348638
Why not the Xiaomi laptop?
Or the Huawei one if you care for aesthetics?
>>
>>66345209
Much like how apple revolutionized they keyboard with chicklet keys, they will do the same by eliminating the physical keyboard and making it just a secondary screen with full digital keyboard.

I actually play videos on my phone sometimes while using my laptop. This would have been a cool feature to have.

>>66346200
Why the fuck didn't they just use one of those lids that flips or turns and spend the extra money on a better single screen.

I'd LOVE that.
I take external keyboard with me anyway. This would just make the laptop better.
>>
>>66345209
nah, they'll probably just stick with the touch bar because you don't have to sacrifice the cursor to use it
>>
>>66345580
Apple bought some key touchpad patents and uses them to ban all others from using the same technology.
>>
>>66350166
This would actually be worth buying. Especially since when docked it would Esentially be just two screens. Meaning that all you need is a dock, mouse, and keyboard. No need for separate monitors.
>>
>>66350279
I am convinced that this is just Asus' way of using open source phone touch manipulation instead of the proprietary minefield that is trackpad tech.
>>
>>66350162
Their current switches are so shit that they honestly might. Atleast then it would be good for something.

Set it up in tent mode and two employees can share one computer. Absolute genius. Or as apple marketing would put it. Cola borate on your next song orcustration with your friends. Or write a book while your friend edits it and provides real time notes.

>>66345533

Well, it'll be not a first time when they stole things and claimed as their own.
