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

proud to be there on the ground floor.”
Going from 11.6” to 37.9” in less than five seconds, the OrigamiBook
allows users to watch, work, and play whenever they want, however they
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
“Innovation is a buzzword that’s thrown around the industry in just
about every scenario. Forget innovation. iBUYPOWER wanted to launch
something totally out of the ordinary, and so we thought, people love
ginormous screens so why not deliver it in the form of a notebook? The
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,
