Dual-format laptop: The PivoBook's display can be rotated through 90 degrees
Compal has launched the PivoBook, a new and innovative laptop with an adjustable orientation. This take on the concept has a specially-designed hinge that allows its 14-inch display to switch between landscape and portrait without being removed from the rest of the system. This property keeps the device in the notebook category rather than that of the convertible or 2-in-1.
The OEM has also stated that the PivoBook will have an OLED multi-touch panel with an FHD resolution. It is also slated to be exceptionally light and thin so that it can be tilted easily with 1 hand. It also weighs only 3.5lbs, meaning its new form-factor is portable as well as adjustable.
These are probably just some of the reasons the Compal PivoBook has won 1 of IF's 2020 Design Awards. It is directed at consumer- and industry-grade customers, and may be destined for in the North American and Asian markets soon. This innovative notebook does not have concrete pricing or availability information.
