DigiTimes noticed laptops with LG Display's ultrathin Shuriken display are being shown off at Computex by Compal and Acer:
Notebook models with Shuriken ultra-thin panel technology debuted at Computex 2011 with Taiwan-based Compal Electronics and Acer as well as some of Compal's downstream partners such as Anadem showcasing products at their booths.
The Shuriken panel, developed by Korea-based LG Display, allows a notebook with a 14.1-inch panel to have a chassis size comparable to that of a 13.1-inch model.
With Intel also aiming to reduce its future CPU's power consumption significantly from 35% to 15%, models with strong performance, but ultra-thin shapes will become the new trend for designs in the future. LG is already mass producing its Shuriken panels with Acer the first vendor to adopt such technology into its 14.1-inch product line. The notebooks began shipping from Compal earlier in May.
