The Intel Tiger Rapids prototype gives us a glimpse of the future with a device that combines a tablet and laptop into one. For those who haven’t seen it before, this concept basically is a Windows 10 PC that sports a 7.9-inch LCD on one side and a matching E Ink panel on the other, which the operating system sees as a USB peripheral. It’s mainly designed for business users, as it lets them take notes on one side via an included stylus or virtual keyboard, and use them on the other. Click here for a few bonus images.

“Much like Lenovo’s Yoga Book, which similarly charmed me a couple of years ago, Intel’s prototype is basically as thin as technology can get in our modern age. What’s more, Intel claims you can get up to 6 or 7 hours of battery life out of this in prototype form, and the company anticipates its hardware partners could implement further optimizations – should they wish to turn this into a retail product – that could extend the endurance further,” reports The Verge.
