These days you need a gimmick to raise interest in your laptop.  We have had had HP with their leather-clad Folio, Lenovo with their dual-screened e-ink Yoga Book and now we are seeing a recent patent from Dell that the company is also working on an innovative new laptop design.

The patent for an ‘INFORMATION HANDLING SYSTEM WITH MULTIPLE DETACHABLE DISPLAYS’, was filed by Dell Products L.P in June 2017 and published by USPTO on January 3, 2019.
