iBuyPower Unveils OrigamiBook Through TigerDirect

TigerDirect.com has announced today its partnership with iBuyPower to exclusively sell and distribute the OrigamiBook- a high-performing, multi-monitor collapsible laptop. Coming in at 1.8 pounds, and folding down to 1.8 inches, the OrigamiBook marks a sensational shift in the world of portable electronics, bringing science fiction closer to reality.

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 a doubt that the OrigamiBook is a complete game changer, and we are 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 connections.

“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, or rucksack.

Cementing their spot as the go-to shop for the biggest tools in tech, TigerDirect.com’s partnership with iBuyPower will allow the on-line superstore an opportunity to take part in history with the multi-faceted OrigamiBook. Available for purchase on-line and in brick-and-mortar TigerDirect shops, the OrigamiBook is stocked and ready to take over the world.
