    note the curve on the screen that is needed to get it to be stable. No thanks!

    Presumably a bi-stable lamination able to roll flat but self-stiffens into a curved form. I used to know someone who did their masters research into those at uni back in the day.

    It's a very slight curve. People (for the most part) have no problems reading books, newspapers, maps and other things with greater curvature...

    If you do a lot of linear CAD it messes with you. I don't have astigmatism and I don't want to develop it!

    Do most users of small, portable computing devices do a lot of linear CAD on them?

    Re: LG files rollable screen laptop patent

    Looks crap for image editing too - all you are doing is saving a few mm off having a lid with the screen already in it. Plus,the design exposes the keyboard due to a lack of a lid,so would need a solid case to stop needless button pushes. Looks like an answer looking for a problem. Great for posers!

    Fairly sure that neither CAD nor video editing are in the list of proposed use cases for this gear!

    I have my XPS13 and my colleague has their surface pro and we are (well were) regularly in coffee shops/around meeting tables loading up drawings and chatting through designs etc. Make something portable and people will want to use it accordingly.

    OK, I stand corrected, then. Clearly everyone uses CAD on laptops apart from me!!

    I see most things in shades of black and green, actually...

    Doesn't change the fact that most people using a laptop won't be CAD designers, and the screen curvature will have even less of an impact than that of a newspaper or a curved phone display.
