If you’re a tech geek at heart then this Bento Hybrid Laptop review is a must-read!
This amazing Bento project has put together all the hot gadgets into one electronic box. Even more, the smartphone interacts with the tablet and they both connect to a portable HDD and to a 15” display, having the entire system fed by a solar battery.
But What Is This Bento?
Bento is a hybrid computer made of several modules: laptop, tablet and a smartphone. This futuristic concept has been developed by the US-based designer René Woo-Ram Lee and explores the What-If scenario of combining a tablet, a PC, external hard drives and a smartphone into a single modular device while maintaining portability of each component.
- Laptop with 15″ OLED screen
- 11″ tablet
- 4″ phone sit in shallow depressions
- Solar powered lithium-ion battery
- 1TB SSD drive
The futuristic tablets also come with a great grip and a rubber seal protection that goes along the perimeter. Another great thing about Bento is that it has stands that can be folded into the back surface, giving you multiple working and viewing angles. You can also use it as a docking system or even like a Bluetooth wireless keyboard.
You can easily expand the dock and the springboard is launched. It has a dynamic display which makes it simple to input texts and symbols. Bento also has an elegant touchscreen with controls and the keyboard is ergonomic and mobile enough to leave room for applications.
Use It As a Whole Or Individually
The Bento box provides all the tools to work as one whole unit or separately. When connected, you can use each screen for different purposes and content.
- Daily use: the tablet displays a keyboard, the notebook screen is used for visualization and the smartphone is used as a music player or clock.
- Photo editing: you can load reference material onto the phone, run Photoshop on the tablet and the image edited is displayed on the large screen.
- Graphic Design: the tablet serves as a drawing surface, the screen to display the full GUI for your drawing program and the smartphone screen displays color palates or other information.
You can easily upgrade the system as a whole or each component at a time. If you want a faster SSD or a more powerful battery, you just buy one and put it in. The same with a higher resolution display, you just grab one from the manufacturer and keep the rest of your old components.
When charged, you can pull out the tablet and the phone and use them wirelessly, or independently as separate tools.
Also, the developer envisions Bento less than 15mm thick and no processor or operating system in the laptop shell. Instead, the CPU and software come from the removable tablet, making the experience a bit like the Motorola Atrix 4G docking station.
Well, all in all, Bento is more than simply a PC replacement. It pushes the entire laptop-working experience beyond our imagination.
