Open Labs has introduced the Touch Laptop – a mobile Windows computer optimized for music production.
The laptop is one of the results of Open Labs’ collaboration with Dell and features Intel Sandy Bridge processors, DDR3 memory and a 14″ Multi-Touch Screen..
Here’s what Open Labs has to say about the Touch Laptop:
With our new Dell partnership, we were able to build a customized laptop based off one of Dell’s most stable and powerful platforms. With complete control over the internal components, operating system, and custom tweaks, the Open Labs Touch Laptop was designed specificly for music creation and live performance.
It’s hardend tri-metal casing features an anodized aluminum back, a tough magnesium frame, and a zinc alloy latch. It also features a spill resistant backlit keyboard and a 360 degree bumper surrounding the touchscreen, making it a truly road ready machine.
Included with the Touch Laptop is our own Music OS 3 software. Designed for touch screen use, the fast and user friendly Music OS™ makes creating and performing with virtual instruments and effects easier than traditional DAW’s.
MimiK keyboard cloning software will clone the sounds of any midi equipped keyboard or hardware sound module. Put all your keyboards into your Touch Laptop.
The Open Labs Touch Laptop is priced starting at $1,499.
