When it comes to gaming on a laptop, or even doing basic day to day tasks on one, the most frequent complaint is that there is not enough screen real estate to multi-task. Luckily, this problem may soon be solved, since at CES today Razer revealed “Project Valerie,” a conceptual three screen gaming laptop (via PCWorld.)

As explained here by the company, Razer is calling Project Valerie the “the first automated triple-display laptop,” and it’s safe so say it’s pretty impressive.   The laptop packs the GTX 1080 graphics card, mechanical switches, and Chroma lighting, which is already similar to the company’s 17 inch Razer Blade Pro device. The displays themselves, meanwhile, are three 17.3-inch 4K IGZO displays equipped with NVIDIA G-SYNC and expansive 180 degree NVIDIA Surround View gaming.

In case you were curious, at the push of a button, the displays automatically come out and retract into slots behind the main display thanks to the power of some hinges.  Unfortunately, this conceptual device is very heavy, so you might have trouble carrying it around since the device has a CNC aluminum chassis and is 1.5 inches thick and around 12 pounds. Pricing may also be steep, since devices in the company’s Blade Pro lineup can be as high as $4,500.
