The marketing shots of Intel's 0.7-inch thin Metro laptop prototype caused quite a stir, so we'd imagine the real, physical, meatspace shots of an actual working prototype would be even more intriguing. AeroXperience got their hands on a prototype machine at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference recently, making sure to shoot the open laptop and e-ink display on the back with 1080p video. Unfortunately, the representative walking the reporter through the laptop confirms that this is purely a concept device, and is really only aimed at encouraging OEMs to develop similar models. We knew this already, but it sounds particularly harsh coming from the horse's mouth. Especially when we know that most new OEM laptop designs are few and far between, beyond the obvious clockwork-like updates when new CPUs hit the block. Surely if Intel and co. can do super thin, then so can everyone else.
