Pure Touch screen Windows 7 laptop from Asus?

Asustek showed some concept devices at its Computex 2008 booth, including a notebook that has two touch screen displays.

The demo showed how users can interact with the system using touch and gestures with the displays changing to suit different activities (e.g. showing a traditional-looking soft-keyboard and track-pad when editing documents).

With Microsoft recently revealing that Windows 7 will place a large emphasis on touch-based controls, this prototype could be a common design within just a few years

The basic design will be, I believe, one that has screens on both the top and the bottom, just like the next version of the One Laptop Per Child project. If you look at the pictures in that column, you can see the four usage modes:

1. Tablet mode. Snap the laptop open and flat, and the two screens work together as one giant touch screen.

2. Laptop mode. Open the virtual keyboard, which appears full-size on the bottom touch screen, and use like a regular clamshell laptop.

3. Book mode. Open an e-Book and hold it sideways like an open book. One page appears on the left screen and the next page appears on the right. Touch the corner to turn the page.

4. Two-person mode. Open it flat again like Tablet mode, but click a button to make one screen orient itself for one user and the other toward you.
