Razer Announces Project Valerie: The World's First Triple Display Laptop

In the "Are we crazy enough to do this" pages of CES 2017 (company's words, not mine), Razer announced what they call "the world's first triple display laptop". Project Valerie remains a prototype as of this time, but it certainly is an interesting one, particularly for professionals who are frequently on the move and require a humongous amount of screen real-estate.
Project Valerie features three 17.3 inch 4K screens, powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, natively supporting NVIDIA Surround View with a whopping resolution of 11520 x 2160. The dual screens that flank your lonely, usual laptop screen, can be automatically deployed by a specially-designed hinge mechanism, which allows the two side displays to quickly deploy and lock into place ensuring perfect alignment in "a matter of seconds". Razer says Project Valerie is still just that - a project - but everything passes through a prototyping phase, so we can definitely see this one coming in the future.

I thought by 2017, laptops will be obsolete, but no! They are growing up to mimic PC systems...

Resolution is too big for just one GTX1080. SLI barely could handle demanding 11520 x 2160 within acceptable settings. The idea is excellent. 3x4k need for fieldwork. .:)

if it wasn't Razer ... i would find that interesting... but no luck ... the worst brand did it

(well the only thing that has Razer in the selling name that would interest me would be a OSVR HDK V2.0 ... at last it's not "their own" and it cost way less than a Rift or a Vive and is open source ... the only shame, is to be listed as "Razer OSVR HDK V2.0" ... )

btw nice "MacBookPro" chassis design ... :p

IF this Reaches production and retail sales, then what we see here is the first Major great advance in laptop design since the Touch screen.
Looking Toward to production Models and "THE REVIEWS"

Well thinkpad w701ds had secondary screen five year ago. But it had right dgpu for that usage. This one really needs next best mobile quadro to be any good. Now it's too under powered for gaming and not best possible for work.

Razer's dubious reputation aside, anyone remember the development of their Project Fiona (Razer Edge) tablet and how that turned out?

Thanks for posting the statement.
That was careless of them... Don't they have security around their booths when they are showing prototypes?

CES 2017 The head of gaming PC company Razer says someone stole a pair of prototype devices from its booth at the CES conference.
Min-Liang Tan did not say what precisely was stolen from the booth, where Razer had been showcasing both its new hardware and concept offerings, but he suggested the heist could be the work of a rival vendor.
"At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. Our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest," Tan said in a Facebook post on the matter.
"We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously – it is cheating, and cheating doesn't sit well with us."
Razer had been making headlines throughout CES thanks to a lineup of visually compelling (if not particularly practical) demos, including the Project Ariana VR gaming projector, and the Project Valerie notebook, a monster gaming rig that sported a trio of 4K screens and pushed the definition of "laptop" PC.
Though in recent years CES has shifted toward smart cars and wearables, the gaming gear displayed by Razer and other high-end PC builders remains a big draw for the event, and Razer had been claiming a number of awards from the expo floor prior to the demo units going missing.
The company says it is working with both local law enforcement in Las Vegas as well as show staff to help track down the nicked hardware. Razer is also requesting that any show attendees who may have information get in touch with its legal department.

That theft was soooo funny.

The laptop is not pretty enough. I want Microsoft to do something similar.
