Our editors have compiled a list of five laptops you can’t buy — or at least anytime soon. If we happened to miss any, please leave us a comment. “Continue reading” for the entire list.
Liebermann Olympus 20″ Widescreen Notebook
For the ultimate in multimedia performance, check out Liebermann’s 20.1-inch SLI notebook. It features a stunning 1920×1200 resolution OLED display, single or dual core processor (up to 4.50-GHz), 4GB of DDR SDRAM, dual NVIDIA graphics modules in SLI, dual SATA hard drives, Blu-ray and HD-DVD optical drives (yes, both), PAL/NTSC HDTV internal tuner, and a built-in 3.0-megapixel camera. External interfaces include USB 2.0 ports, FireWire 800, GigaBit LAN, Bluetooth, S-Video, and quad DVI output.
Rest assured it will probably approach, if not surpass $10,000. If nothing else it acts as a nice proof of concept.
Yes, this Steampunk sculpture is actually a fully-functional laptop, complete with morse key and wooden space bar. Other features include Ethernet, USB connectivity, and VGA-out.
We’re not exactly sure how this actually works, but a creative Japanese fellow seems to have created a laptop that looks like something out of the movie “Pi.” The creator was inspired by both the Apple Mac (he wanted to make something completely different) and Terry Gilliam
XBox 360 Laptop
That’s right, Ben Heck has done it again, this time he’s built a custom XBox 360 laptop. It features a 17-inch widescreen display, integrated keyboard, Wi-Fi, and a 3-port USB hub. This laptop measures 6.75″ x 10.75″ x 2.8″ and weighs in at 14-pounds.
A friend of mine asked back in May “Can you build an Xbox 360 laptop?” And I responded “Sure, can you pay for it?” He agreed, and thus I set forth on what was surely to be my most complex and insanely ridiculous videogame project yet
Jaren Goh, creator of the Sony Ericsson Black Diamond and Obelisk 2 PS3 concept, shows off his latest creation, the BlackBook. It slightly resembles the Toshiba Quosimo line of notebooks. No word yet on if this concept will go into production.
The indented tiled keypad flows seamlessly into the main body while a TFT screen on the topside replaces a physical logo and allows for graphic customization. The omnipresent gloss factor and chrome-clad edges are impossible to go unnoticed.
Atari 800 XE Laptop
Ben Heck — creator of the NES Micro and Portable N64 — gives us an up close look at his custom Atari 800 XE laptop, which was completed last year. It features a CF card reader, 8-inch TFT display, dual speakers, a full keyboard, joystick ports, and integrated Atari controls.
