Aurora 7 .. Laptop with 7 screens


The British company Expanscape has introduced a prototype of a laptop called Aurora 7 with six additional screens extending in each direction away from the home screen, each displaying its own windows and applications.

Many laptop joints do not handle a single connected screen well, let alone seven.

Besides the 17.3-inch home screen with 3840×2160 pixels, there are three other screens of the same size and resolution.

One 7-inch screen with 1920×1200 pixels above the right and left screens, you also find a 7-inch, 1920×1200 p touch screen installed on the wrist rest.

This prototype weighs about 12 kg and is 4.3 inches thick, and includes the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 mid-range graphics processing unit to operate the four 4K screens.

Aurora 7 comes with 2TB of hard drive storage and an additional 2.5TB of Storage space via an SSD, plus all ports you may need.

It also has an Intel Core i9-9900K processor and 64GB ram, and you can find more specs here.

Expanscape wants in future releases to use Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 instead of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, with options for AMD Ryzen 9 3950x or Intel i9-10900K.

Aurora 7 is primarily designed as a mobile security operations station, and the battery of the current prototype lasts only one hour.

The computer uses an 82-watt core internal battery, as well as a 148-watt secondary internal battery to power additional screens, exceeding the FAA's legal limit for an aircraft.

Expanscape says it is working to address this in future prototypes, in other words, the company is committed to allowing you to bring the seven-screen laptop to the aircraft.

Aurora 7 looks rougher on the rims than Razer's Project Valerie three-screen laptop, however, Expanscape claims it is ready to sell the prototype of the laptop.

Expanscape says it can help interested parties to purchase the computer to book a prototype, but for the price, the company asks you to sign a non-disclosure agreement, preventing you from sharing the price publicly.
