The Morning After: Dell’s modular laptop concept can be taken apart in seconds | Engadget

With no cables or screws involved, Dell’s latest Concept Luna is very convincing. It’s a laptop that you can take apart in about 30 seconds, with just the installation tool. And we’re talking about replacing the entire keyboard, processor, or screen because it’s completely modular.


When you put it all together, the new Concept Luna looks and feels like a typical Dell laptop (more Latitude than skinny XPS, to be clear). The new Luna laptop also has room for a CPU fan, to house more powerful processors. Once a part is replaced, it takes longer to boot because, reasonably, it has to go through multiple tests to make sure each part works as it should.

We’ve seen modular technology for PCs and even smartphones come and go, but can Dell make that stick? The ability to replace components in, say, an army of enterprise laptops for a company can result in huge savings for both the environment and the company’s bottom line.

The Artemis missions will spend this decade establishing the first extraterrestrial human outpost.

“NASA is building a coalition of partnerships with industry, countries, and academia that will help us get to the Moon quickly and sustainably,” then-NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in 2020. Whatever keeps them there, alive, that’s the problem. The Moon is generally inhospitable to life, due to its weak gravity, huge temperature fluctuations, sharp, spiky, statically charged dust, and a general lack of liquid water and a breathable atmosphere. The first colonists will need energy, heat, atmosphere, drinking water, and more. Andrew Tarantola outlines what the Artemis missions are intended to accomplish.

There is also a smaller Flip phone with a large cover screen.



Oppo Find N2 shares a similar landscape screen design with its predecessor, yet it weighs just 233g. That’s 42g lighter than before, about 30g less than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. The Find N2 has a larger external display at 5.54in, and while its flexible 7.1in display kept the same 8.4:9 aspect ratio. “Golden” aspect ratio (1792 x 1920), it clearly has less visible creases and improved visibility.

As is often the case with Chinese phone companies, Western launches aren’t a sure thing. Both phones are available for pre-order in China today, ahead of the Find N2 launch on December 23rd and the Find N2 Flip launch on December 30th. Oppo representatives also told Engadget that the Flip will launch in international markets, but they are still evaluating whether to do the same with the larger Find N2.
