(EN) PORTABLE COMPUTER HAVING FOLDING SPEAKERS
(FR) ORDINATEUR PORTABLE COMPORTANT DES HAUT-PARLEURS PLIABLES
Abstract
(EN) A portable computer includes a computer body. The computer body has speaker panels rotatably coupled to side portion to cover side surfaces of the computer body. Alternatively, the computer body includes a top speaker panel rotatably coupled to a front portion of the portable computer to cover a front surface of the computer body. The speaker panels have a speaker mounted therein. A variety of speakers, including an array of speakers, can also be mounted within the speaker panels. The speaker panels can have a cutout therein, and provide a protective cover to components disposed along the sides or the front surface of the computer body.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ordinateur portable comprenant un corps d'ordinateur. Le corps d'ordinateur comporte des panneaux haut-parleurs montés rotatifs aux parties latérales de façon à recouvrir les surfaces latérales du corps d'ordinateur. Dans une variante, le corps d'ordinateur comporte un panneau haut-parleur supérieur monté rotatif sur une partie avant de l'ordinateur portable de façon à recouvrir une surface avant du corps d'ordinateur. Un haut-parleur est monté à l'intérieur des panneaux haut-parleurs. Plusieurs haut-parleurs, notamment une matrice de haut-parleurs, peuvent également être montés à l'intérieur des panneaux haut-parleurs. Les panneaux haut-parleurs peuvent présenter une entaille et servir de couverture protectrice à des composants se trouvant le long des côtés ou de la surface avant du corps d'ordinateur.
