It can not be seen here on the rendering so maybe it curls up under the keyboard somehow? On a theoretical basis, they could include the display signal (+ sound) transmission into the mechanism itself. So you'd have around 16 parallel data lines built into the metallic hinge itself. Internally it wouldn't be a problem, externally there should be ways to extend the mechanism with a short cable. Or maybe you just include contact pins on both ends? Of course you'd need to make sure that there will be contact all the time but I'd compare it to a hdmi slot. It COULD work. Sure it would be difficult to achieve. This also brings me to another potential problem: what about dust and sand getting into the internal hinge? Imagining a grain of sand slowly scraping across the internal sliding mechanism... ouch. 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
