ASUS’ Very Hefty Mothership Gaming Laptop Is More Like An All-In-One PC

CES has always been a playground for ASUS and this year’s event of the year was no exception. The Taiwanese computer maker has announced a ton of stuff, but really, there was only one that caught our attention because of how ridiculous it is.

ASUS Bezel-free Kit Will Get Rid Of Vertical Bezels In A Multi-Display Setup

If you want an expansive view when gaming, you can either go for a huge wide screen display, or hook up multiple displays. The former has its limitation in terms of how wide it can go, while the latter is obviously wider, you will have to put up with interrupting vertical bezels that exist between monitors.

OK. It will not ‘delete’ the bezel per se. In fact, the right words to use here would be “creating an illusion of disappearing bezels,” or “optical obfuscation.” Continue reading ASUS Bezel-free Kit Will Get Rid Of Vertical Bezels In A Multi-Display Setup
