Abstract

A computing system comprising of a soft screen workbook. The computing system has a first panel having a first screen, a second panel having a second screen, wherein the first panel is rotationally displaced both from the second panel. Moreover, the first panel is adaptable to display a keyboard wherein a user may provide manual input thereon. The second panel is rotationally displaceable to a first position from the first panel for operating in a laptop mode. The second panel is rotationally displaceable to a second position from the first panel for operating in a bool mode. The second panel is rotationally displaceable to a third position from the first panel for operating in a tablet mode. Furthermore, the information displayed on the first screen within the first panel and the second screen within the second panel is adjusted based on the operating mode of the computing system.
