The next revolution in computers? Dell showed a modular laptop without screws – Technology
Dell showed how to think for the future. The modular notebook has no screws and can be disassembled to the last part in a record 30 seconds. It is supposed to facilitate repairs and replacement of components with new and more powerful ones.
Dell Luna modular laptop concept.
A laptop that is easy to repair and improve. Dell came up with such an idea, which was inspired by the unfinished concept of a modular phone from Google and LG. However, the American computer manufacturer has the ambition to see the idea and in these days has already shown the second improved version of the Luna concept.
As Dell demonstrated in the video, all parts can be removed from the computer in a record 30 seconds without using special tools. The notebook has none of the components attached with screws or glue. The manipulation should be so simple that absolutely anyone can handle the replacement of components.
Just a working concept for now
Dell continues to remind us that Luna is still just a concept that may or may not see the light of day. Many variables go into platform production and maintenance. Someone has to produce compatible components and keep the ecosystem in some kind of competitive state. This means that Dell will have to keep up with the times, and when converting new processors, disks, memories or displays, the company will have to implement technologies so that they can be used in modular devices.
Exaggerated expectations also need to be tamed due to size and weight. Since the notebook has replaceable parts, it does not mean that the manufacturer does not spend a lot of time installing them on the motherboard or chassis in the most efficient way possible. As a result, such a notebook will always be heavier, larger and thicker than any other notebook with comparable parameters. On the other hand, concepts like Luna bring options that laptops have lost in the meantime – for example, the possibility to expand the operating memory or replace the disk with a newer one.
