    No point in having a 43" monitor, imho. I'm hoping that laser 4k projectors with 3000+ lumen will fall into the sub $2,000 range. That will eliminate all my problems.

    43" 4K - it is the same densityt as a 19" FHD display, just more surface.

    You can do a lot with it -> Code, anime, movies, work, everything is better at that size.

    This would be something i'd be eager to see:

    - 13 to 14", Blinding bright 4K Amoled Touchscreen
    - i7 8550U or i7 8650U
    - GTX 1060 Max-Q
    - Large WP-Trackpad
    -Fingerprint Scanner
    - TB3 4x for eGPU
    - SD Card Reader
    - RGB Keyboard
    - Fat battery
    - Convertible
    - Decent cooling with some headroom for gaming in the sahara
    - Upgradable RAM, WLan, M.2 (x2)

    This would be something i'd buy, if i had the money.

    AMD GPU/CPU + Freesync that cost less than Nvidia counterparts.

    I keep hearing that roll-up displays are imminent, wonder how soon we could get something in the 40"-50" range that you can carry around in a tube. That would be awesome, you could have the machine in a box/pack, the screen rolled into a tube and then a folding frame attached to the side of the tube, so it turns into its own stand.

    Well hell, if Valerie came to fruition, we'd at least have screen real-estate to work with until roll-up displays or better projectors become the norm.

    For that matter, why not have a roll-up screen instead of a roll-up display? Build the projector into the laptop & combine it with a roll-up screen so you can have a 30+ display "on the go".

    Valerie looked like it was just begging, pleading even, to be accidentally broken. I'd sooner take a VR headset with me and use a virtual desktop for working, or suffer through a projector for presentation.

    Somehow, I don't think a built-in pico-projector is out of the question...but there's not enough "outside of the box" thinking to even build a prototype....yet

    Maybe Acer will try it. Whatever you think of the 21X, they were the ones who had the courage to actually release something as out there as a curved screen laptop. If anyone would build in a projector to a laptop, I'd look at them. Everyone else has been playing it much safer.

    Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC (Ryzen 1700 + RX 580 - desktop grade components).
    AMD APU - Ryzen 2500u + Vega (8?) iGP and Ryzen 2700u + Vega (10?) iGP.


    What I would like to see is a laptop with all AMD hardware that uses lower voltages and proper cooling execution so the machine can sustain maxed out CPU+GPU at the same time indefinitely and not go above 70 degrees C (in terms of higher end hardware).
    Plus a decent battery.
