Razer’s Absurd Widescreen Laptop Is a Multi-Screen Transformer
Gaming laptops can seem like a great option for anyone who doesn’t want to be chained to a desk, or can’t afford to have a desktop computer for gaming and then a laptop for everything else. But even though gaming laptops can be pretty dang powerful, they just can’t match the glorious screen-space of a three-monitor “battlestation” set-up. At least, they couldn’t.
Razer’s Project Valerie, a concept laptop announced at CES this year, attempts to solve that problem with two extra screens which slide out from either side of the main screen at the push of a button. That means when fully expanded, Project Valerie rocks not one but three 17.3-inch 4K screens for a total resolution of 11,520 x 2160 pixels or about two Macbook Air screens tall and exactly eight Macbook Air screens wide—not physically of course; Valerie just packs the same amount of pixels.

Of course the biggest thing to note about Project Valerie is that it’s just a concept device. It’s not for sale, doesn’t have a price, and may never actually be purchasable in its current form. This is just Razer taking an opportunity to show off. In 2015, Razer announced a modular desktop PC concept called “Project Christine.” It never came out, and there’s no guarantee this will either. If it does, it will probably be mind-numbingly expensive. But even if Razer never makes this laptop at scale, it’s impressive that it was even able to make it at all.
Stay tuned for hands-on impressions from the CES show floor. It might be the only time we’ll ever get to see this beast in person.
