Better than the MacBook: This notebook concept makes Apple look old

For many users, a MacBook from Apple is undoubtedly one of the best notebooks or is perhaps even unrivaled. But it can be done even better, as a renowned industrial designer is now proving.

Whether the cheap MacBook Air or the even more powerful MacBook Pro - an Apple notebook is a dream for many people. The manufacturer deliberately refrains from gimmicks, for example a touchscreen is still in vain today. The classic approach remains.

More practical than any MacBook: Crazy notebook design

A look into the future could be worthwhile, a future in which modular and flexible notebooks will enrich our everyday lives immensely . Kevin Depape created such a design with the name "Paysage". Industrial designer by trade and currently working for HMD Gobal (licensee of the current Nokia mobile phones). His notebook is not doomed to remain a laptop, because if necessary, the computer can be transformed into a desktop computer with a larger display (source: Kevin Depape). How does the designer manage to implement this promise, at least in theory? More on this now in the article.

At first glance a fairly wedge-shaped notebook, not unlike an earlier Vaio laptop. But the "Paysage" project has even more to offer ...

... from this point of view nothing else is noticeable at first. So what is so special about this notebook? In the next picture we can already guess something ...

... The display and keyboard only form a unit to a limited extent and only temporarily . Somehow the screen seems to go on "downstairs". Nice too ...

... can be seen in this picture. There is no sharp edge where the display stops. Indeed ...

... the screen can be completely flipped over and the keyboard ...

... completely lose weight. I'm sorry, what? The solution to the riddle: The "keyboard" is the actual computer. It lies on a large and flexible display. The real idea ...

... a 15-inch notebook, which can be transformed into a desktop computer with a 24-inch display if desired. All you need is a docking station for the monitor that you always have with you. What a blatant idea ...

... Designer Depape had the original idea more than 10 years ago , but now wanted to revive it with new technologies. Unfortunately ...

... no manufacturer has yet implemented the concept. The Surface Book from Microsoft would most likely be comparable. However, it does without a flexible display. But from that ...

... the concept shown here seems very realistic. You wish Apple or another manufacturer would tackle the realization in the next few years ...

... the power connector has something of the first MagSafe connector on MacBooks with such a lateral orientation. And first ...

... the "docking station". Similarities to the base of the iMac are certainly only "coincidental". We agree: The "Paysage" is actually better than any MacBook, but in contrast to this one, it has only been a utopian fantasy so far. At least one that could become reality sooner or later . Fingers crossed.
