Hands On With The Dell Duet & Ori Concept Laptops at CES 2020

by birtanpublished on April 2, 2021

So this is the duet and this is the Orie and both of these names are not official and neither of these devices are technically official either Dell is kind of giving us a preview of what types of devices they are looking forward to building in the future so we don't know when these are coming or exactly what they will be like but they do give some pretty interesting idea of where Dell thinks the future is and let's start with the duet first because this is the most finished of the two in terms of hardware so the duet is obviously more of a laptop form factor these are two 13-inch screens you know kind of what

You'd expect and you can use them either in tandem as one kind of extended screen or as two separate screens gonna do some multitasking up here while doing something else down here you can obviously use a stylus use as a touchscreen but the interesting thing is when you get to flip this keyboard around similar to the surface neo where you put the keyboard kind of determines what you can do with the device so you can have it down here obviously and have content that expands on the top and on this strip at the top you can also move the keyboard to the top of the screen

Which then gives you access to something like a touchpad and this is again resembles a laptop experience we have the keyboard up here and the touchpad down here obviously don't have any buttons so you actually press on a touchpad but this kind of give the general feeling of a laptop the great thing about having two screens you can use both of them you have touchscreen everywhere but then also you have the option to use a physical keyboard when you actually need it but in terms of what you could actually do with the device it's a little bit limited as it

Is now because this is a Windows 10 device it just runs Windows 10 now Dell isn't saying that it's gonna actually ship a product like this but as it is it's pretty buggy and you can't do a lot in terms of touch because Windows 10 but Windows 10 X is the dual screen enabled operating system that Microsoft is working on that apparently just wasn't ready to get into this device quite yet but obviously I think that a device like this is made for Windows 10 X which is going to be a little more touch friendly and also utilize the two screens to its full effect so that it's actually worth

Easing because right now it feels a little bit like mmm I'm not sure what I would do with these two screens but Windows 10 X really will bring to life hopefully in terms of apps and also in terms of features so while the software might be a little buggy and early right now the hardware really does feel pretty refined it feels like an XPS product the keyboard kind of magnetically fits onto the bottom here and everything's made out of aluminum you got a USBC part each side and the whole thing just feels really thin and light and like you could throw this into

Your backpack and take it on the go it feels like a finished product in those sense but one that feels a little more early in terms of the actual hardware is this little guy which is the Ori short for origami is what Dell calls it and this was a full-on foldable screen built into a little you know small PC form factor and as it is you can see it's it's small it kind of looks like a little journal I'm with the Dell logo on the front and you open it up foldable screen of course but it does feel pretty early it feels like it's made out of a kind of like cheap plastic

And it got some rough stuff on the back I'm not sure quite what this is made out of but you know as with all foldable devices it's early and it's kind of cool and I like the do wet this one obviously is much smaller than eight inch screen and it really fits into more of that tablet form factor it's less a laptop more a tablet although you can still use those two screens as a dual screen device so you can use it have us a window up here window down here or you can have it all extended like this but as you're probably wondering like the other foldable devices out there like

The galaxy fold this does have you know unnoticeable crease down the middle and you can see the hinge there which is really unique and of course really innovative but this is kind of an early product and you see that from the hardware now the closest similarities this has to another product is the surface neo for Microsoft similar size similar function although this doesn't currently have a keyboard function like the the duet does and the neo does so whether or not Dell ends up doing something like that to fit it to this product kind of have to wait and see but

I really hope they do because I think as it is you might run into some difficulties not having a physical keyboard here because again this is Windows 10 and without a keyboard and some kind of a touchpad they're gonna run into some problems with the operating system in apps or even for example doesn't quite close as it is now Dell says they're working on that some kind of magnets will hold it tight but you know got to mention it because you'd want that to close I think so obviously there's still a lot we don't know about these two devices and again these are

Previews of the future the prototypes or experiments but I think they do offer a couple of interesting ideas about how dual screen devices might look in the future and like what types of things you could do with them for example we still don't know the hardware we don't know what processes are in here we don't know what these are really capable of in terms of compute so you know it's interesting there's two new things out there and I'm really curious what you guys have to say are you interested in these are you more teresting these than these surface products which of these
