Not content with what is currently being offered in the marketplace, Intel has just created a whole new kind of PC with the Florence concept. Yes, they really are trying to leap ahead with this creation. It’s got an ample-sized display surrounded in beautiful carbon fiber-like trim, and while this makes it quite the beautiful digital picture frame, the Florence is capable of oh so much more.
Running a full build of Windows, the Florence can slide its display backwards to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard hidden beneath. With the keyboard in place, you’ll be using it like a conventional laptop in no time. The portable machine goes one step further by providing a wireless VoIP phone as well, letting you talk like a normal person (sort of) rather than through a contrived mic and speaker combo.
Gorgeous, functional, and futuristic, the Intel Florence Concept PC — on display at Computex in Taipei — is a sign of things to come.
