Steven Leeds, Director of Marketing at TigerDirect said “With the
constant evolution of technology innovating the landscape of how we
work, play, and navigate our day-to-day interactions, I can say without

want. The collapsible display allows for easy mobility, and has
connections to add up to 10 external monitors for an even larger
monitor- creating a multi-media center from a high-performing laptop. In
consideration of staying ahead of tablets and the competition, the
OrigamiBook boasts Super DualShot, combining super Wi-Fi and Ethernet
adapters. This means: faster downloads, smoother online gaming, and
better streaming videos. The Super DualShot gives users unequalled
hardware and software technology for notebook Wi-Fi and Ethernet

ORIGAMIbook is in a class of its own, because literally, no one else
would want to make something like this. But for those who want to be
different, this is it — be the envy of all coffee-shop hipsters,” said
Darren Su, Vice President and origami enthusiast.
The OrigamiBook’s entire array of super specs makes it not only a
revolutionary piece of hardware, but the highest performing: each
OrigamiBook comes equipped with sonically accurate speakers from
Dinaudio, 512GB of RAM, Super Gaming E2200 Gigabit Ethernet Controll,
and 3D touch compatibility. With the OrigamiBook, you have an at-home
media center, or the perfect work tool to throw in your handbag, pocket,
