It’s not exactly a laptop, and it’s so much more than a UMPC. Instead, the ASUS D-Plus series can be better thought of as a fully portable desktop computer, complete with all the stuff you’d expect at your home workstation… except you can fold it up and take it with you.
You get a good-sized 17-inch widescreen to watch all your videos, play all your games, and do whatever else you do with a big, bright display. The provided keyboard is completely wireless, and you’ll find the mouse concealed underneath when it’s not in use. Not digging the QWERTY? Then, whip out the included WACOM tablet.
If you’re thinking that this design is pretty radical, you’d be right, because — as far as we can tell — this is not an official ASUS design. After all, it popped up on that Yanko Design site, with concept credit going to Joao Carneiro. As such, we can’t say for sure if and when the ASUS D-Plus will ever see the light of day, but we didn’t think the Black Diamond would come to fruition either (and it sure did).
