Microsoft offers a few more 'Origami' details

Microsoft continues to be evasive about its Origami Project, which appears to be a mobile PC running Windows XP.

Despite the buzz being generated by its Origami Project, Microsoft plans to give it only brief mention at the upcoming CeBit trade show in Hanover, Germany. The event coincides with when the company has said it will offer more details. The project apparently involves a mobile PC running Windows XP, according to a website about it.

A Microsoft spokesperson said Intel and Samsung Electronics will provide the most information about Origami at the show because Microsoft had not designed any new hardware for the project.

Microsoft has been evasive about sharing details about the device since industry watchers began talking about it last week. The Origami Project now includes this terse description in lines of source code: "Origami Project: the Mobile PC running Windows XP."

To see the source code, visit Microsoft's site at www.origamiproject.com/2/ and click on "week 2" at the bottom. Next, right-click anywhere except the flash animation box, and choose "view source". The new phrase is visible at the top of the page of code.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
