CES 2017: Razer unveils laptop with three 17-inch 4K screens

When closed, it is 1.5 inches thick and weighs less than 12 pounds.

Ever wish you had a laptop for travel that could duplicate your monster multiple-screen PC at home? Razer has read your thoughts and unveiled a new three-screen laptop at the Consumer Electronics Show that could put many desktops to shame.

Dubbed Project Valerie, the laptop boasts three 17-inch screens, with the two wing screens sliding out from the main screen and locking into place. Each monitor is capable of 4K resolution and are run by an Nvidia GTX 1080 video card, making the setup compatible with VR setups as well. It also boasts full chroma capabilities.

While the laptop is not designed for lugging around at conventions, it is fairly portable for what's included. When closed, the CNC aluminum case is about 1.5 inches thick and weighes less than 12 pounds. Not bad, considering that you also need to find a way to keep the unit running cool, which Razer has done with "a custom-designed fan and dynamic heat exchangers paired with a vapor chamber to maximize heat dissipation."

“Multi-monitor desktop set-ups are becoming more necessary for professionals, creators, and gamers,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “For the first time, we’ve engineered a solution that users can take with them. Project Valerie promises all of the functionality of three screens and none of the hassle.”

No price has been revealed, or a release date for that matter, so the showing was probably for more of a wow factor and what is being accomplished in miniaturizing technology.

      This might be kinda cool for development work. But you'll look like the biggest nerd at the coffee shop

      That actually kinda works. Much better than I'd expect it to, at least.

      OMG its like that laptop was built for me :)

      Instead of a 1080 it really needs a Pascal Titan X in it, then it be perfect.

      Very cool!

        Totally, its a perfect VS setup or any development in general on the go away from your home base.

        I love the idea, once tech catches up a bit more this would be the only type of laptop I would get personally.

        Once the mobile Volta 2080 comes out then you could probably easily run 1080px3 mode @ 60fps + easily on all your games which would be amazing.

        Next gen this config will own, now it be mostly just development and single screen gaming or older games only in 3 screen mode. Which really is still amazing, in heard of and awesome for a laptop.

        I think the idea owns.

      This has to be OLED, right? That's the only way I can imagine making screens that small

      I quite like that. It'd be perfect for work (and play at low fps).

      Why Valerie? That's somebody's mom's name. Why not Cerberus or Hydra or something. I don't know. Good luck.
