    I know what you mean. Still eyeballing those ugly bezels. Maybe using a dark theme will help. O Microsoft! Microsoft! Always reaching past the goal in front you. Will you never learn?

    LoL! The Neo is dead, might as well hijack the thread for a more practical discourse. You guys a lucky I don't have a cat, I'd have filled the thread with pictures of it, just as a sign of protest.

    For those of you new to the idea that was the Courier, or never saw the UI demo, check out this video of what Microsoft thought a dual screen device could be: Courier UI Demo . It's worth the few minutes to watch the video.

    The additional hardware power available today could make Neo a real game changer.

    I like that you keep the hope alive, but I'm 99% sure that they have cast their lot with android for dual screens at least for the medium future. One interesting bit of speculation I have heard, is that perhaps they might rework it as foldable display device and the delay of Windows X also gives foldable screen tech a bit more time to mature.

    And allegedly Sasmung has made huge strides in that area with the latest galaxy fold.

    I've made up my mind to be sour about the Neo, so don't nobody try to talk me out of it.
    At least they could have released the first version as a dual screen, create interest in it and then reworked the second iteration.

    Never seen such a timid giant as Microsoft

    Microsoft rarely moves first. When they move second, the market rattles.

    Interesting, I thought that was rather Apple.
