Can you imagine having at your disposal all the processing power of the best gaming computers in a portable format like a tablet? Dell believes that, at least in the near future, this is possible, and so I demonstrated with the prototypes presented at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 in Las Vegas.

But Dell's ideas for future developments were not sold out with UFO. The Texas-based company also presented two prototypes of multiscreen devices: Duet and Ori.
Duet is a computer that at first glance looks like a traditional laptop, but is equipped with two 13.4-inch screens, which adapt to different tasks. In this way, it gives you a tactile experience both in the main monitor, and in the one that occupies the space traditionally destined for the keyboard.
