The British company Expanscape presented a prototype laptop that goes far beyond the conventional. This is the Aurora 7, a laptop that has seven screens and weighs more than 10 kg. The “portable” computer still has cutting-edge specifications, such as the Intel Core i9 processor and 64 GB RAM.

The laptop draws attention by the number of monitors. While traditional laptops have only one display, the Asus ZenBook Duo has two and the Razer gaming laptop presented in 2017 has three, Aurora 7 has seven screens.
The set of panels consists of four inches (resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels) and three more of 7 inches (1,920 x 1,200 pixels). The other decoy is due to its non-portable dimensions: closed, the Aurora 7 is 51 cm long, 34 cm wide and 11 cm high. The computer weighs about 12 kg.
The datasheet features the Intel Core i9 processor (9900K), 64 GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card, 2 TB HDD and a total of 2.5 TB in SSD. And to keep it all up, the computer has two batteries: one 82 Wh for the laptop itself and another 148 Wh just to power the monitors.
The Expanscape experimental computer has three USB 3.1 ports, a Thunderbolt and an HDMI input in case the user needs another screen (you never know, right?). The laptop also features a 2 megapixel webcam and Wi-Fi (802.11 ac) and Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity.
Expanscape is still working on a third Aurora 7 prototype. In this case, the computer is expected to bring the Intel Core i9 (10900k) or AMD Ryzen 9 (3950x) processor, up to 128 GB of RAM and an Nvidia RTX 2070 card.
