Carbon Fibre, Aluminium and GorillaGlass for other laptops?
Previously there's been talk on IdeaStorm about making laptops lighter, but people haven't been sure how to do it. Then there's been the sudden announcement of the Dell XPS13 Ultrabook; a system built with a Carbon Fibre/Aluminium shell, as well the thin but versatile GorillaGlass for its display. Now despite the fact its videos won't work the Ultrabook looks sweet, and the high-performance gaming models can get very hot, so this is a discussion into the viability of these materials used in other Dell products.
If these materials could be used, it could make the laptops stronger, lighter and improve heat dissipation when in use. Is it possible or, alternatively, could it be researched?
