It looks promising, but web browsing maybe not so much. This is what 'second screens' are made for.

wow, The way it resizes the resolution, they better make it so that it keeps the aspect ratio in the final build.

Otherwise, I don't see why I would use this with a laptop by my side. Concept is cool.

Wish we had more context on the video. Where was the video taken? Was it a "live" demonstration or a demo under the best possible conditions?



Hivemind posts already? Give it a rest.

Did you even watch the video? Its very clearly just a random demonstration, nothing preplanned.

As for snapping, I use on it my surface to watch sports while doing other stuff.

This could be great for fighting games. Combo/move list in the snapped window while you are in practice mode.

I just don't see a reason to look up movie tickets or google while in-game. There's usually a tablet or phone or laptop around these days anyways, which I'd much rather use.

Please tell me there's an option to keep the aspect ratio instead of squishing the game screen.
