Looks like Acer has some new tricks up their sleeve. Soon they will introduce some ultra-thin frameless notebooks that feature touchscreen keyboards using the back of the panel’s glass substrate. These notebooks are scheduled to make their debut in the second half of the year.
The notebooks would display frames by printing colors onto the back of the notebook’s reinforced glass substrate by Corning. This would reduce the notebook’s size to something even thinner than was possible before and would also reduce material costs.
