Modulus Notebook

Up and coming designer, Ed Boaden, has designed an ecofriendly laptop known as the Modulus. What makes this modular thin notebook appealing and unique, is the ease at which you can assemble and disassemble the various parts with its snap fittings. This design promotes recycling and makes the repair and maintenance of this laptop easy.

The Modulus is easy to assemble and disassemble as no tools are needed. The casing components can be dismantle by removing the end cap screws by hand, the fit snap hardware allow for absolutely no tools. This makes lengthy repair times a thing of the past. If there are problems with the machine, you can simply remove the component and replace the one faulty piece, instead of shipping the entire notebook off for repair.

The notebook offers a prop open stand, which lifts the back of the machine, allowing air flow under the notebook. This reduces the amount of energy required to keep the internal components cool. For comfort and minimal strain, the front edge of the keyboard features palm recesses. The notebook is designed to be stackable, with a tongue and groove feature on the bottom side and top side, ideal for the work place.
