GRID Laptops?

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Tue Sep 19, 2017 5:22 pm

Im not sure what you guys think but persoanlly, I think that GRID laptops are the spiritual predecessor to Thinkpads from their black coating to Magnesium exoskeletons and amazing keyboards.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

I'd go as far as saying, that the GRID laptops are the forefather of the Panasonic ToughBooks. More rugged than the typical business class PC.

My eyes are bad enough as it is without having to use something the size of a smartphone screen for main computing tasks.

If it interests anyone, certain Toughbooks used IBM BIOSes.
