Razer’s Project Valerie looks like a normal laptop until its two extra screens are deployed.
Hiding somewhere behind the laptop’s main screen, Razer managed to squeeze in room for two more 17.3-inch 4K monitors. On display at CES in Las Vegas, the laptop uses what Razer calls “an automated deployment mechanism” to quickly and easily lock the extra screens into place once the laptop is open.
The laptop uses an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and Nvidia G-sync technology to produce “the smoothest possible framerates and expansive 180 degree Nvidia Surround View gaming.”
“Multi-monitor desktop set-ups are becoming more necessary for professionals, creators, and gamers,” Min-Liang Tan, Razer CEO, said in a statement. “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.” That is, if users don’t mind carrying around an extra 12 pounds in their backpack.
It is only five pounds heavier than the Razer Blade Pro, however. And like the Razer Blade Pro, Project Valerie manages to fit in a mechanical keyboard with Razer’s signature switches. Everything is compatible with Razer Chroma, too—so there’s a whole bunch of colorful lights to customize.
A potential price for the concept laptop has not been announced. Plenty of Razer’s other CES concepts never make it to market—like Razer’s portable gaming device Razer Switchblade—making it unclear on whether this one will ever enter into production. Too bad, though: Razer may have created something that can rival the price of Acer’s $9,000 laptop.
