Wanted to bring up a PC / Notebook discussion again.
Right now I try to reduce weight and volume in my setup. I found this nice 11’’ gaming notebook that goes up to i7 and gtx 650:
Do you know something similar?
Any upcoming Touch device with dedicated graphicscard? And maybe long batery live as well.
Then another point, or more a conceptual thought about the future of the notebook.
Wouldnt there be the need for the bridge between a notebook and a desktop PC soon?
Just imagine the above Notebook (11’’) without display and without keyboard and case.
It could be packaged in a case that is more designed for simply deploying it with software, transporting it from A to B and using it at point B for your vvvv stuff like shows, installations etc. For that type of design you could finaly come up with more inovative periphery devices. Like for example the AR glases (‘Visors’), Multitouch Phones as keyboard and mouse input in the simplest case, wearable sensors and all kind of stuff. Its realy not a matter of input devices anymore nowadays. With wireless technology involved it could change everything if you have a ultraportable, high performance system that you not even take out of your backpack to use all its power.
Todays computer design is still using a very old design concept and the very first input devices mouse and keyboard that force you on the desktop.
Raspery Pi and Co is a direction but i am still missing GPUs and vvvv running on it.
Sometimes a blurry picture of a dream device pops up:
The above described system with a vvvv OS booting into a gray display
Yes yes just some ideas and i am curious about your opinions…
